Shaker Cabinet Doors
Shaker Cabinets - Popular for Over a Century
Shaker style cabinets first became popular in the mid-19th-century, and they have never fallen out of style since. The clean, simple design of shaker kitchen cabinets looks timeless and complements almost any space, which is why people have come back to this style over and over again for decades. If you’re looking for new or replacement cabinet doors that perfectly suit a space while subtly elevating the aesthetic, you can’t go wrong with shaker cabinets.
What Are Shaker Style Cabinets?
Even if you can’t picture what shaker style cabinet doors look like, you have almost certainly seen them before. As one of the most popular cabinet styles of all time, shaker cabinets feature prominently in kitchens across the country. Some of the hallmarks of the design include recessed center panels, light finishes, simple hardware, and minimal embellishments. The Shakers, the religious order that created this style, were known more for exceptional craftsmanship than gorgeous designs. Today’s shaker cabinet doors maintain that commitment to craftsmanship, and the original look helped spark the trend of minimal design that’s more popular than ever today.
Choosing Shaker Style Cabinet Doors
Think of shaker cabinets kind of like a blank canvas. The straightforward design fits in anywhere while also creating the foundation for a design of your own. For instance, shaker kitchen cabinets don’t have to rely on a light finish and simple hardware - you could paint shaker doors with bright, bold colors and install ornamental hardware if you wanted. You could also go in the opposite direction and keep the doors as basic as possible. The point is, shaker cabinet doors offer a full spectrum of design possibilities. Don’t think of this style as minimal, classic, rustic, or basic. Ultimately, the shaker style has remained so popular for so long for one reason: versatility. No matter what look you want to achieve, shaker doors add something important.

Shaker Style Replacement Doors
You don’t need to renovate your whole kitchen to introduce shaker cabinets. In fact, you don’t even need to replace your cabinets as long as the underlying structure is sturdy. Shaker style replacement doors are cut to the exact same size as your current doors before being shipped directly to your location. Then you simply remove the old doors and hang the replacement doors and suddenly your kitchen looks completely different: new and fresh. Maybe you want to replace older shaker doors that have worn out or maybe you want to bring the shaker style into your kitchen for the first time. Either way, ordering custom-built replacement shaker doors makes it easy and affordable to bring a timeless style into the most important room in your home (or anywhere else you have cabinet doors).
Ordering Replacement Doors
If you’ve decided on Shaker cabinet doors, the hardest part of replacing your cabinet doors is already over. Now you simply need to make a few more decisions, place your order, and expect your doors to ship in about 10 business days!

I could not be more impressed with the cabinet doors I just received. My only regret is that it took me so long to pull the trigger and place the order. Charles J.
You made some replacement doors for a rental I own. Problem is...the doors I didn't replace look awful. Seriously, you make a very high quality cabinet door and I guess I'll be ordering the rest of the kitchen soon. Kay B.
I wish I would have found you years ago. I flip houses and usually remodel the kitchens, so I have some experience with cabinet doors. Yours are the best I've ever used. The sizes are right-on and the sanding was perfect. Todd J.
Your Youtube videos are outstanding. You made measuring and hanging my new doors a snap. Thank you. Jen A.
I ordered new cabinet doors for my upper cabinets in my kitchen. They needed to match the bottom doors. Thanks to your very knowledgeable staff, I got perfect doors--the grain matched, the trim matched, and the hardware is outstanding. I am delighted and would recommend this company without reservation. Thank you for an outstanding product. Madge S.

I'm a home re-modeling handyman and I just finished a kitchen remodel using your Shaker Doors. This was my first order from you and the sizes and overall quality are much better than my prior supplier. You helped my make my customer very happy.Mike B.
This was my 4th kitchen re-model with your cabinet doors and, just like before, the doors were perfect. The workmanship is top notch and the sanding was exceptional. My 5th kitchen job is scheduled for August and I'll be ordering from you again. You make a great door.Kent's Kitchens
We ordered replacement doors for our 60-year-old home and were very pleased with the product. The milling was of the highest quality. The joinery was very well done, and the wood selection was obviously done by a professional who cares what the finished product looks like. It is one thing to assemble a project with technical skill, and another thing entirely to accomplish the assembly with an eye toward bringing the best out of the wood being used. Both aspects were accomplished, and at a very high level! The dimensions were absolutely perfect. Each door was correctly dimensioned to within less than 1/16 of an inch. It was very pleasing to see this attention to detail, especially since I took the time to measure my cabinets twice, making sure I had done my part. I had never worked with white birch before, and when I saw the issues with staining the wood (soft grain with blotchy absorption of the stain) I was a bit worried. I had no problems at all because the wood was of a higher quality white birch that had been properly handled at the mill and sanded to a stain-ready finish. A good sanding sealer was applied, and then the stain. The results were EXCELLENT! All-in-all, we received a great product, great advice and excellent customer service from CabinetDoors.com. We would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for cabinet doors. Nice job, everyone! Michael R.
The doors arrived today and fit perfectly. Thank you very much. I will be ordering the remaining 18 doors and 6 drawer fronts in the next couple of months. Walter W.
I remodel kitchens for a living and I can only say...I wish I had found you sooner. These are the overall BEST cabinet Doors I have ever installed. Excellent quality and workmanship. Jake A.
Your cabinet doors are much higher quality than the doors that were installed by our home builder. There is really no comparison, you make a GREAT product. Al N.
The contractor remodeling our kitchen was so impressed with the doors we ordered from your website that he is going to use your doors for all his future jobs. Marcia N.
Your cabinet doors, and the finishing tips in your blog, made my kitchen remodel look GREAT. I recommend your doors to everyone. Kay H.
Hi, I have received my 1 door, and I feel like I received the same quality service and product as if it were 50 doors. I am very pleased with a beautiful door delivered as promised. Thanks, David H.
Although I haven't bought the cabinet doors for my kitchen remodeling project yet, I will be making my purchase from cabinetdoors.com. Your site, and especially your Blog, has more useful information than I've found anywhere else on the internet. The information you provide is exceptional and you have helped to give me the confidence to take-on this project. Nancie D.
We took your advice and ordered the smallest door in our kitchen to see your quality...which is absolutely great...Now we are ordering the rest of the kitchen and bath doors. Don & Barb B.
These cabinet doors are PERFECT! Super high quality and right-on size. Harry D.
So glad we remodeled our kitchen with your doors, instead of doors from the hardware chain. You saved us over 35%. The doors arrived in 12 days, (including 4 Fedex shipping days). The hardware chain quoted 28 days, and your quality is far better than their samples. Mark H.
These doors are EXCELLENT! In quality and workmanship and value. Very glad we found you. James L.
A friend put me onto your website and I can't thank her enough. You make an excellent product and I'm completely happy with everything about my purchase. Paula B.

Very nice cabinet doors, the color matching and the sizes are right-on. Paul L.
Your customer service is fantastic. Somehow you spotted an error I made on my order (I reversed width and height on one door) and called me to ask if the size was correct. Your attention to detail prevented me from ordering one of my doors wrong. Thank you so much. Bryan E.
