Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past few years, you know that Shaker door styles have been wildly popular in today’s cabinetry. What you might not know is that there are many types of Shaker door styles, in fact Dura Supreme actually offers 14 different styles of Shaker doors!
Our offerings fall into three different camps: the standard Shaker, the shallow Shaker, and the skinny Shaker.
Standard Shaker Doors
The standard Shaker has a ¼” step down to the center panel and can have a beveled or 90 degree inside edge profile. Its rail and stile widths vary from 2¼” to almost 3½” wide. These can be designed in inset, full overlay, or standard overlay, in both our framed Crestwood cabinetry line and frameless Bria cabinetry line.
The Homestead Panel and Craftsman Panel doors each have a 90 degree inside edge profile – Homestead with narrower rails and stiles. The 90 degree profile is more true to historical Shaker styling. Here we see them as inset, although they can also be used in a full overlay application. They make a beautiful statement in modern farmhouse or craftsman styled kitchens.
If you are looking for a chunkier Shaker look, look no further than our Napa Panel door style. With almost 3½” wide rails and stiles, Napa makes a beautiful statement.
The Quinn door style is made using our Textured TFL (Thermally Fused Laminate) material, and has gorgeous texture and graining. This finish is super durable and easy to clean. It pairs beautifully with painted cabinetry in two-toned spaces.
Shallow Shaker Doors
Shallow Shaker doors have a very slight (only an eighth of an inch) step down to the center panel. The new Parker door style, with a 90 degree inside edge profile, can be designed in full overlay or inset. The Kips door style is finished in our Matte Foil for Bria frameless cabinetry and has a beveled inside edge profile. The shallow Shaker is great for those who want the ‘essence’ of Shaker styling with a little more contemporary flair.
Skinny Shaker Doors
Skinny Shakers like our Sutton and Reese door styles are a fabulous alternative to a slab door style. These skinny Shakers can exude midcentury modern vibes as well as a New England farmhouse aesthetic (especially when done in inset). Hardware choices have no size limitations since the rails and stiles are so small.
With the huge selection of Shaker door styles that Dura Supreme offers, it won’t be hard to find the perfect style for your project. The nuances between the beveled and 90 degree profiles, the skinny vs shallow Shakers, provide some great jumping off points for different design directions. Whether you’re working with our framed Crestwood cabinetry or frameless Bria cabinetry, stained or painted finishes, even contemporary Matte Foils or Textured TFL, we have a Shaker door style for you!
