BEAUTIFUL, UNDERSTATED SHAKER STYLE
The classic proportions of a shaker style kitchen give it timeless appeal.
A John Lewis of Hungerford painted shaker kitchen is every bit about the honesty and integrity that come from the roots of this design. Changes in finishes and simple details mean that the Shaker offers a wide range of different flavours; making it a very versatile style that is as much at home in a country kitchen as it is in a city apartment.
Curved shaker kitchen units and cabinets make a contemporary statement and allow the room to feel less like a kitchen and more like a living space. Our elegant in-frame shaker kitchen can incorporate an island feature with capacious storage plus a tidy place to sit up on stools. Shaker style kitchens are also the perfect canvas for pantry cupboards and tall appliance combinations, common in traditional kitchens.
The cabinetry in shaker kitchens is often built from solid wood. Walnut can be hand finished with our special wax, this enhances the beautiful grain of the wood and also offers protection from everyday spills. Oak is another popular choice for shaker kitchen doors to combine and contrast with any paint option.
SHAKER DOOR STYLE
A frame is attached to the front of a cabinet to hide the front edges of it. The doors and drawerfronts sit and open within the frames and the cabinets are fitted with special hinges and drawerfronts to suit. The hinges are often visible when the door is shut.
This is a feature of traditional cabinetry inspired from the early 1900s but tends to be more expensive than lay-on doors.
SHAKER DOOR STYLE
This is the standard kitchen door range. ‘Lay-on’ is just another name for overlay. The door lays over or on top of the frame.
The advantage of the lay-on door style is that there are very small gaps between doors and drawers, creating a consistent and continuous appearance and traditional kitchen feel. That means bigger drawers and more space for storage.
By choosing from a wealth of materials and textures for your shaker kitchen units and cabinets you can create your own distinctive and highly individual look, giving you a bespoke classic kitchen that feels contemporary.
We are extremely happy with our kitchen. It's beautiful!

We had a great experience with your company and would definitely recommend you to others.
This is just a short note to thankyou for an excellent level of service when we purchased our kitchen earlier in the year.

We had our 1st kitchen from you in 1999, and when we moved, had no hesitation in again choosing John Lewis of Hungerford.
We are absolutely delighted with our fitted wardrobe and airing cupboard door.
