What is a shaker door?

Shakers was a religious act founded in the 18th Century, in England. Originally known as "Shaking Quakers" and their simple living, architecture, innovations and furniture. The Shaker style is distinctive, with a clean and simple approach, giving us a timeless product. Shaker furniture was made for functionality and longevity, without the need for carvings and etched designs, Shaker cabinets and doors offer a minimalist and contemporary look whilst providing functionality and a stunning finished look. Shakers valued open living space that was clutter free and simplistic, they believed that every object in the home should have a function. These underlying rules of Shaker design have lead to some of the finest designs of modern furniture. Our own Shaker style doors, have been designed with these principles in mind. We offer a simple panelled door, with clean lines and balanced proportions providing timeless charm that will always be in fashion. Like all of our designs, our Shaker doors come either with or without primer and can be hand painted by yourself, in any colour. plain shaker door From made to measure kitchen doors to bespoke wardrobe doors, we produce a large variety of sizes.

Simple machines are used to aid the process, but the material is 100% handled by human hands, and the cutting and finishing of every component is done by hand. Each door is hand-made in the UK, we do not let sub-standard products leave our workshop. We use a type of MRMDF branded as Medite®.
