What's the best way to order shaker cabinets?


Is it best to order Shaker cabinets with "Plain Drawer Fronts because they are easier to keep clean" or shaker cabinets with the Shaker Drawer fronts.. I know it may be a preference, but does anyone know which is most popular?

    Hi, I had shaker with draws and in my new home I have shaker without. Thought I would have a change! No find I have to use trays inside cabinets to hold all my bits....If you don't have a need for drawers it's just a case of what looks right in your Kitchen layout really!

  • We have shaker cabinets with plain drawer fronts because of the clean factor. I love our shaker cabinets but the corners of them are tough to keep clean (ours are white), but the drawers can just be wiped down. Super easy.

    The shaker drawers with the trim are considered more high end.

    Blv, you should buy the cabinet fronts that you like and that go with your things. It isn't about what is the most popular.... you are buying them and you are living with them. Popularity doesn't always equate to the best in anything.

      I think for resale purposes it is important.

    I had shaker trim put on my drawers. The upscale look was a small price to pay for a bit more cleaning. (can of air to blow out dust and maybe you'll need a Q-tip a couple times per year.) ...the big thing with any trim is clean it IMMEDIATELY after a spill or splash!
