Shaker Style Is Still A Cabinetry Classic
When it comes to design style, from industrial to contemporary, the shaker cabinet offers many style possibilities. At the core of the Shaker movement were the concepts of plainness, practicality, and pride, which reflect strongly in the designs unique features. Due to the solidity and harmony this cabinetry appeals to all styles of spaces making it a favorite among cabinetry styles.
The Shaker design remains true to its generations-old simplicity but can adapt to fit any modern style.
True Shaker cabinetry can seem quite simple in squareness, due to the frame and panel profile, also known as rail and stile construction. In larger units, the panel can be separated into one or more sections by using pieces known as mid-rails, mid-stiles or muntins.
By using birch wood — the Shaker craftsmen could focus on the functionality of the design and let the timber speak for itself.
Built-in cabinets and drawers create a clean, orderly look. Today, many kitchens have rows of big drawers, which look great with this cabinetry profile.
This is always a big factor when renovating or deciding whether to implement a design into new construction, especially if your room needs built-ins.
The Shaker profile tends to be in the mid-price range since there's no further molding. Of course, this factor also depends on the materials used.
