Shaker cabinets are distinguished by their five-piece doors and recessed center panels. Whether sleek and modern or ornate and traditional, there are plenty of styles to choose from. They are a timeless feature of one home, which has been around for many years. They are so popular as they are minimalist which can fit into any home and style of kitchen.
The Shaker cabinet was practically born for Craftsman-style kitchens. Shaker cabinets are the perfect fit for craftsman kitchens because of their less is more approach and their use of wood and other natural materials.
Shaker cabinets are known for their paneled doors, which sit atop solid wood frames. In many cases, the frames are connected with mortise and tenon joints, which are simple joints in which a narrower piece of wood goes into a slot in another piece of wood.
Cabinets made of Shaker style are traditionally made from lightly stained wood without any other adornments or decorations. The shaker cabinets can have a variety of stains, woods and colors. Popular colors include off-white, gray, navy, sage green, white and blue. Some cabinets also come with beadboard inserts, which add a touch of vintage character to their simple faces.
