Something modern or a little more classic? A simple door style, or a fancy, raised panel door? The shaker door style is a good place to start because of how simple it is.
What Are New Shaker Doors?
New shaker doors are going to consist of five pieces. With two stiles (sides), two rails (top and bottom) and one center panel, these five pieces make up the door. There are many different five-piece doors out there to choose from. What makes the shaker style different is that it ends there. Those five pieces are all that there is to a shaker door. There is no raised panel, applied moulding or anything. The stiles and rails come together to form a square or rectangle shape (depending on sizes) and a flat, recessed panel sits in the middle of it all. In case you aren’t familiar with the term, recessed is used to describe a panel that sits lower than the stiles and rails.
