Shaker is a five-piece recessed panel door in the transitional style. It features a clean, simple, single square bevel abutting the recessed panel. The outside of the door panel is a clean, square cut with no bevel. As a transitional piece, it is very versatile and works well with a variety of applications, including Traditional, Transitional, Contemporary, and even Country design styles. Like all Shaker design, it evokes the aesthetic of the Shaker people — known for their simple living, architecture, and high quality furniture. All Closet Works five-piece laminate doors are constructed in a similar fashion to a solid wood door in that each has five pieces that are fused together, giving it an authentic look without the premium price tag of a natural wood product. Through mortise and tenon construction, the stiles and rails are glued and clamped around a center of 1/4″ thick, two-sided MDF (medium density fiberboard). Water-based glue is applied and one of our many laminate colors are membrane-pressed onto the component parts. Shaker is considered eco-friendly due to its CARB II compliant status and the fact that the MDF core is 100% recycled product. It is available in limited color choices including Chalk, Fawn, Midnight, Sahara, Mink, Granite, and Iced Oak. Shaker doors and drawers are also available open frame — meaning they can accept inserts such as glass or mesh panels.
Minimum Shaker closet door/drawer size: 7.4" W x 7.4" H
Maximum Shaker closet door/drawer size: 45" w x 94" H
Recommended Maximum Shaker closet door/drawer size: 18" w x 48" H
(Drawers width standards are 18, 24 and 30 any other sizes are custom and will induce a custom drawer fee)
NOTE: All Closet Works standard doors and drawer fronts are 3/4" solid core material and have excellent durability. MDF is often more stable than solid wood and stands up better to changes in heat and humidity. Solid wood doors typically expand and contract both horizontally and vertically when temperatures and humidity rise or fall. Because of this, cabinets, doors and paneling made from solid wood require a higher level of care and maintenance. Laminate doors made from MDF are a great low maintenence, lower cost alternative to wood — and they do not expand or contract.
