The history of Shaker Kitchens

The shaker style dates back to the 1800s and is associated with a religious group called the Shakers. Minimalism was at the heart of everything they did and this was reflected in their surroundings. This is how the shaker style kitchen was born. While shaker kitchens draw from traditional and functional design, they can be adapted seamlessly into modern kitchens.
