Origins of the Shaker Door
Shaker doors are all the rage nowadays, and they have seen a meteoric rise across the UK. Hence, it’s important to understand the characteristics of these oak internal doors. This info will help you decide which type to purchase.
Shaker doors are a style of cabinet doors. The name originates from a religious sect of people who shake their heads and talk in tongues while dancing.
With a basic square indent, shaker doors have a flat frame and a level centre. All of the edges are square, and there are no extra embellishments. This lack of ornamental flair is prevalent today in internal double doors or even some Victorian doors.
The Shakers religious sect took great pleasure in their craftsmanship. It’s obvious in the way their furniture appears equally excellent from the front, side, and rear. Except for a tiny carving of the Shaker emblem, their designs were sturdy, simple, and modest.
Thanks to their superior craftsmanship, Shaker doors can complement various architectural styles. Although most experts regard them as classic, they may also be successfully employed in a modern context, as seen in contemporary interior doors with glass or interior French doors.
In addition to shaker doors, our online store offers oak internal doors in various styles. You can explore different quality door options for your home or commercial space.
Features of Our Shaker Doors
Instead of mahogany, shaker doors comprise natural materials such as pine, cherry wood, and maple. Here at UK Oak Doors, we use a more substantial material — oak — to provide increased solidity and strength for the door.
Shaker doors can also come in the form of internal bi-fold doors. The simplistic nature of the wood makes them suitable for hallway passages. Furthermore, they can work as internal barn doors because they’re incredibly tough and resistant to weather.
Modern versions of shaker doors comprise engineered wood known as Medium Density Fibreboard or MDF. It’s highly moisture resistant and relatively affordable to use. Most internal French doors in the shaker style have MDF. It’s a feature that makes them durable and long-lasting.
Glazing can also be done to shaker doors to make them internal doors with glass. The rustic appearance of Shaker doors combines with intricate glazing to elevate the door’s visual appeal.
