Shaker Style Kitchen Cabinets

Braam’s Custom Cabinets Characteristics. True Shaker cabinetry can seem quite plain in its squareness, due to the frame and panel profile, also known as rail and stile construction. Many variations of the original design have come about since the 1800s, when the Shaker community was in full force. In larger units, the panel can be divided into one or more sections by using pieces known as mid-rails, mid-stiles or muntins.By choosing the best quality wood they could muster — such as maple, birch and chestnut — the Shaker craftsmen could focus on the functionality of the design and let the timber speak for itself. Walnut timber achieves a flawless look in this kitchen, although this is a much richer looking timber than what was used in their day. Atmosphere Interior Design Inc. Style. Repetition was king to the Shaker craftsman. 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.While the very squared-off rail and stile tends to be the purist approach to the Shaker door, giving the edges a slight bevelled finish has become more popular. This small but effective detail adds a new twist to any kitchen space. CliqStudios Finishes for Shaker CabinetsPainted finish. This offers a more contemporary look, allowing you to keep the sharp, squared-off and recessed edges that make the cabinetry intrinsically Shaker. Depending on the type of timber, you may start to see hairline cracks at the joints as wood naturally expands and contracts over time, but this generally does not compromise the door’s strength. Tracy Leah Interior Design Burnished finish. Applied after this unit was painted, a burnished finish gives it an aged look. Each cabinet is distressed, sanded and then applied with a burnishing stain. This can be a complex treatment, so think it through and discuss the options with a cabinet maker. Elements of Style Thermofoil finish. Thermofoil, also known as vinyl wrap, adds durability to kitchen cabinetry. Thermofoil laminate is applied to medium-density fiberboard (MDF) using an intense heat and pressure-bonding process.Keep in mind that where the panel meets the rail and stile on Shaker cabinetry, Thermofoil will not get as sharp an edge as a painted or stained timber door. The machine used to apply the laminate can’t reach right into the corners, so it angles the edge of the stile and rail. Yvonne McFadden LLC Polyurethane finish. The Shaker profile used on the island bench cabinets is the real hero in this pared-down, industrial kitchen. The matte polyurethane finish on this reclaimed white oak timber enhances the grain, knots and streaks. It’s a terrific example of how timeless this cabinetry can be. Elements of Style Cost. This is always a big factor when renovating, especially if your room needs built-ins. If you have your heart set on the timber look, why not combine a veneer with a painted finish? Even take it one step further — get your doors and moldings made in MDF and paint them yourself. The Shaker profile tends to be in the mid-price range, since there’s no additional molding, but it does require more work than a simple slab door. Of course, this also depends on the materials used. MDF tends to be the least expensive option, then Thermofoil, while painted finishes and solid timbers are in a higher price range.More: Hardware Styles for Shaker Kitchen Cabinets

Shaker cabinets are often left with a natural wood finish, or they can be stained to bring out the natural wood hues in darker colors. Shaker cabinets painted white or gray are also popular in modern kitchens as they give off a light and airy feel that many contemporary homeowners seek. Shaker cabinets are often paired in modern kitchens with white or light granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and modern hardware to complete the look.
