Creating the Shaker look: Barry Rourke from Betta Living states: "The philosophy of the Shaker style is simplicity and utility. With this in mind our shaker kitchens are designed to create elegantly simple and truly functional kitchens." "The charm of a shaker kitchen is its effortless straightforward design, so signature panelled doors and warm natural wood surfaces are a must. Avoid overly intricate pillars or cornices." "There are different adaptations of the shaker style to suit different tastes. "To create a traditional shaker style opt for wooden worktops and units. Peg rails are also a popular addition to the Shaker design and are a useful extra to incorporate in your kitchen." "For a modern shaker style kitchen choose a gloss finish on traditional shaker units and mix granite and wooden worktops. Glass also creates a more contemporary look and opt for sleek handle bars versus the traditional wooden shaker style knobs." "For a period shaker style choose white or soft cream units and introduce wooden work surfaces and door knobs - ideal for creating a simple country kitchen feel."
