There is absolutely no question about it, 2020 highlighted just how important our homes are, and how functional living spaces for all the family to enjoy are essential.

With the majority of us spending more time than ever at home, there has been a drastic change in how we use each room. Following on from our second 2021 trend insight, working from home, Rebekah Lyness from Burlanes Chelmsford's design team takes us through her top trend prediction for this year; the shaker kitchen. 

Distinctively minimal with clean lines and understated elegance, the shaker kitchen is classic and timeless, and will never go out of style. The most identifiable characteristic of a shaker kitchen is the simple, square -framed, classically portioned doors.

With a focus on beautiful, practical design and craftsmanship, a shaker kitchen fits well in modern, traditional, grand open-plan, and cosy homes alike. 

The shaker kitchen has a chameleon-like quality; it is so easy to style to your own tastes. Top your shaker kitchen with a wooden worktop for a country feel, or a Cosentino Dekton worktop for a more industrial style; the design possibilities are endless.

Shaker cabinetry is extremely versatile, and can be combined with a variety of different cabinetry styles, such as a slab door, or even glass fronted cabinets. 

We know that no two homes are the same, and no two kitchens should be either. A Burlanes bespoke shaker kitchen is completely unique and customisable; allowing you to create a kitchen that is perfect for you, your home and your lifestyle.

The safety of our staff and our clients is our upmost priority, and like many others, we have had to adapt and make changes to how we operate throughout our business in response to Coronavirus. Our workshop is still fully operational, with all necessary precautions in place to ensure a safe workspace for all staff, we are still carrying out home surveys and installations too, in accordance with the government's guidelines on 'working in other peoples' homes'.


We cannot recommend the Burlanes team enough; they just knew what we needed and got it so right.
