Shaker Variations and Options

Turn the page of any home design magazine or spend time on and you will inevitably find a shaker style door.  This style has seen a significant increase in popularity in the past couple years. It is a diverse door style that can be used across several different design aesthetics, making it an excellent choice for many homeowners.  So if your customer decided on a shaker look, there are some options to consider depending on the chosen substrate.  We offer the classic shaker look in wood, Deco-form 3D laminate (RTF), and MDF ready-to-paint product lines.  Additional options are available if your customer is looking for a wider frame, a little detail on the inside edge, or a beefed up solid panel instead of a ¼” plywood panel for wood doors.  Below are some of our popular items, divided by product line.
