When creating your new kitchen, the theme is partially dictated by the style of doors that you choose.
At Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets we offer two door styles to complement our solid oak kitchen cabinets: Shaker or Traditional. As the name suggest, the Traditional door style is suitable for classic or farmhouse kitchens, where extra ornate details are firmly at home.
Our Shaker doors however, are more suited to a contemporary kitchen design. They are more simplistic than the Traditional door styles, but still incredibly elegant in their own right.
They are named ‘Shaker’ doors after the religious movement which started during the 18th century in Manchester, England, but was made famous by the communities that travelled to North East America, one of which still remains today in the state of Maine.
The Shaker name is used for these cabinet doors because their clean, simplistic lines are evocative of the design ethos that the Shakers are famed for. Whilst Shaker design was mostly black and white, our doors are available pre-painted in any one of Farrow & Ball’s beautiful shades.
All of our solid oak kitchen doors are manufactured entirely from oak – even the centre panels. The frame on our Shaker doors measures 20mm thick, whilst the centre panel is 6mm thick. If you are using Shaker doors for wall-mounted solid oak kitchen cabinets, we also offer glazed variations featuring toughened frosted glass. If ordered along with matching oak cabinets, we will also supply you with Blum™ BLUMOTION™ soft-close hinges, which are a high-quality German mechanism. Finish off your frontals with our selection of matching Shaker pilasters, corner posts or cornices and pelmets.
If you would like to see the design of our Shaker doors up-close, please either visit one of our kitchen showrooms or order one of our miniature door samples, which can be finished or pre-painted in the style or shade of your choosing.
