The Enduring Popularity of Shaker Style
Shaker style represents the most often ordered door at Brighton Cabinetry. And there’s a good reason – it works with any style your clients may want for their new kitchen.
Both the NKBA and Houzz 2023 surveys report that transitional, contemporary/modern, farmhouse and traditional continue as top kitchen designs. Further, these styles are predicted to continue in popularity for the next 3 years. And the versatile Shaker door style, with its clean lines and lack of ornamentation, can fit in with any of these styles.
Kitchen trends come and go, but some timeless kitchen elements never look dated. For example, Shaker and contemporary flat panel cabinet doors.
When you look at the list of best-selling doors from Brighton, you will see that the top styles are Shaker and flat panel.
Shaker Doors Add Value
Custom kitchen cabinets with Shaker doors, such as those available from Brighton Cabinetry, can increase the value of your clients’ homes. Thus, they are a smart investment. The minimalist Shaker style appeals to more prospective home buyers than an ultra-modern door style or, on the other extreme, an ornate French Country door style.
Shaker door styles fill such a broad range of design looks that they are the selection of choice when considering the resale value of a home.
