Shaker design has always been marked by its clean lines and simplistic designs. Most notably, in their furniture and cabinet designs. We have taken these same inspirations and applied them to our Shaker doors.
Doors by Decora’s shaker doors are a fundamental part of our Craftsman Collection. They feature the same design elements you would find on many of the doors that used to grace the entrances of shaker style homes. You will see a few of our favorite shaker doors below or you can View All Craftsman Doors.
Design Elements of Shaker Doors
We have taken many of the same designs elements that made Shaker furniture so popular and applied them to our door designs. First of all, many of our shaker styles feature True Divided Lights (TDL). TDLs are simple clear panes of glass with wood frames surrounding them. You can have many lites in a door or just a few, but it is a simple yet beautiful way to let some natural light in.
In addition, we have also removed our traditional raised molding and raised panels from our Shaker designs. In their place, you will find simple flat panels and no raised molding. This holds true with the shaker principles of simplicity, utility, and honesty.
Furthermore, the shaker design movement was made popular by the individual handcrafted beauty of each piece. Since we are a custom door manufacturer, we are able to maintain the same high level of quality while producing one of a kind, beautiful doors.
Many of these details are featured in the doors below, or you can view all of our Craftsman Doors.
