The Shaker Style Door

Developed originally by the Shaking Quakers in the 1700’s, this construction technique has stood the test of time and is known for its simplicity as well as its strength and durability.

Suitable to most kitchen styles the Shaker door can be kept simple, with its clean crisp edges and square profile it fits perfectly in an elegant Hampton style Kitchen. Dress it up with beading or a detailed profile for a more decorative Country or French Provincial look.

The Shaker door also known as the Stile and Rail, Five Piece or Frame Constructed door is just that. Manufactured from five pieces, two stiles, two rails and the inset panel. Stile and rail pieces are machined and fitted together using a blind tenon and mortise, or tongue and groove join, and the infill panel slides into the grooves on each side.

At Steding Interiors & Joinery we manufacture our Shaker doors in house from a variety of materials.  For painted kitchens we recommend machine grade MDF for a cost effective, stable material that delivers a durable seamless finish.  Solid timber for a more traditional look, and even laminate for the budget conscious.

Quality is paramount at Steding Interiors, we are constantly looking at ways to improve our product when it comes to performance and finish. The application of a 2mm rounded edge at all the joins ensures a strong, sealed finish and reduces the risk of cracking.
