Have you decided to remodel your kitchen, but can’t decide on a door style and color for your new cabinets? Keep reading to learn a few reasons why the white shaker cabinet is still the most popular choice for kitchen cabinets.


You cannot go wrong with the white shaker door. It is a timeless classic for good reason. Crisp, white cabinets will instantly brighten up a room. You may be amazed at how much bigger and brighter your kitchen feels! The clean lines and understated design of the shaker door brings harmony to any style of kitchen whether it’s traditional, contemporary, or somewhere in between.

The Shaker door is named after the religious movement of the American Colonial Era in the 1770’s.
The simple yet functional design replicates the furniture made by the Shakers– who were extremely skilled craftsmen.

The construction of the door consists of five pieces: four rails and a recessed panel. With two options for the drawer, you may choose the five-piece drawer front, which matches the door, for a traditional look. To add a modern touch, the slab drawer front is the way to go. However, not all shaker doors are alike.

For a touch of personality, you may want to consider the beadboard panel, while a decorative trim balances the simplistic design with a bit of elegance.



Think of white cabinets as a ‘blank canvas’ that gives you endless color options for accessorizing. Better Homes & Gardens suggest using neutral tones for the foundation elements in your kitchen like the cabinets, countertops, flooring, and appliances. Introduce other accent colors on things like walls, back splashes, window treatments, and lighting. That way, you won’t break the bank when you are ready to change the color scheme of your kitchen.


Although white is among the top trending colors for kitchen cabinets, you might want to ‘shake’ things up a bit. Mixing white cabinets with another color offers a stunning visual effect. It is also the perfect opportunity to highlight a focal point of your kitchen, such as an island or a specialty cabinet.
