The Shaker design originated from a religious movement that began in the 1770s during the American colonial era. The design tends to avoid any flourishes of style in favor of a simple and functional aesthetic. The simple and clean lines of Shaker cabinets lend themselves to placement in modern or contemporary kitchen designs, despite their traditional origin.
Just look at the way the kitchen and dining rooms here are almost a negative image of each other! Black meets white and white meets wood. What a complex cacophony of contrasts that REALLY complement each other and highlight the brightness of the white!
This white kitchen feels like a masterclass in subterfuge and concealed storage, not to mention modern lines and clean design. It works so well with the lack of handles and despite being small, is amazingly functional and unfussy.
There are plenty of tricks that can help you expand the appearance of depth, height and width in your kitchen, and the best way to start is at the bottom. Firstly, make sure that floor boards run lengthwise, to create the illusion of a longer kitchen space. If you plan to feature a backsplash or other wall design, consider arranging the tiles in opposition to the floorboards' orientation—this will help to create the illusion of depth in the space. Finally, consider raising cabinets or appliances off the floor—if they're flush, the entire space will seem shorter, but raising them slightly will give the appearance of a space with more height.
