Shaker cabinets are one of the most popular cabinet door styles available due to its versatility, durability, and clean lines. Shaker cabinets can tie together almost any kitchen design.
The shaker style was named after its inventors, an offshoot of the Quakers in the 1700s called the Shakers, who were known for their exemplary woodwork and carpentry skills. Its classic style features five pieces: a recessed center panel framed by simple four raised pieces (called rails on top and bottom, and stiles on the sides). The shaker cabinet frame is constructed with cope-and-stick technique, joining the rails and the stiles at a 90-degree angle with a mating part on each side to securely join them.
The cabinet’s minimalistic yet elegant recessed panel in a square or rectangle frame is considered a time-tested staple in many households today.
Popular for use in many styles from traditional, contemporary, transitional, cottage, farmhouse, and industrial.
