The Shaker community, a spiritual group that reached its peak in the 19th century, emphasized the importance of simplicity and functionality in their everyday lives as well as their homes. Handmade Shaker doors became known for their flattened rail and stile construction, which echoes the values of utility, cleanliness and minimalism.
In recent years, flat panel Shaker-style doors have made a huge comeback. One of the great things about flat panel doors is that they have the ability to blend beautifully with any design style, from traditional to contemporary. They are also highly functional, and the absence of deep ridges makes them easy to maintain and clean.
Take a look at some of the endless styling possibilities for flat panel Shaker-style doors.
