Cypress Design & Build has the best selection of shaker cabinets in Monterey, California. Shaker cabinets continue to be the most popular choice of homeowners when renovating their homes, and we offer an extensive selection of cabinet doors and drawer fronts, as well as customization options to make your home one-of-a-kind.
Shaker cabinets are elegant 5-piece cabinets with a recessed center panel. This style of cabinet and other furniture were born out of the Shaker religious movement. These communities of Shakers were committed to making simple, elegant, and beautifully crafted furniture. Their style and craftsmanship have been preserved and passed on for generations. The main difference between the Shaker style and American Colonial, is the use of straight lines in the Shaker style, while the Colonial style uses more arched elements.
Because this furniture style and craftsmanship developed in America, American hardwoods are the traditional choice for their construction. Cherry wood is always a classic option, as well as oak and maple. However, some traditional Shaker-style doors use hickory, which is a variegated wood grain with knots and is becoming a more popular choice for its unique flair.
Classic or Contemporary
Traditional Shaker cabinets can be used in classic and contemporary design motifs. Modern takes on this style include additional designs elements around the framing of the recessed door, or choosing bold new colors. Classic looks would incorporate traditional wood grains, or crisp, white doors. Dressing up the cabinets and drawer fronts with hardware elements can increase the style element.
Fixtures and finishes are one of the most exciting parts of creating a new room, and at Cypress Design & Build, we have many options to help you create the perfect look. While unadorned Shaker-style cabinets and drawers are an elegant and complete look, you can also choose many different hardware styles and finishes to dress them up, such as:
- Cup Handles
- Color stains
