The History

Members of the Shaker religious group created shaker cabinets, whose values included simplicity. They went out of their way to bring out religious values in their homes using such designs as those of the shaker cabinets.

The cabinets were made with locally available timber, which was pine. The cabinets were functional, plain, and long-lasting. Today, they are still made with little or no detail and are highly functional.

 High-Quality Kitchen Cabinets

Qualities of a good kitchen cabinet include the following.

  • Full plywood construction.

Full-plywood construction ensures that the cabinet holds together better as plywood has more holding power than particle boards.

  • Soft Close Hinges

Soft-close hinges close quietly and ensure that your cabinet doors are not left open. Soft-close is a type of technology that slows your cabinet doors when they are 1 inch away from closing. It also ensures that they close on their own and no cabinet doors are left open in your home.

  • Easy to clean

Your cabinets must be easy to clean so that they do not get stained when liquids spill. You should be able to wipe off spills with a cloth quickly when one occurs.

  • Customizable

If you buy ready-made cabinets, make sure that they are customizable and easy to modify. You can then choose to install them in your home such that they serve your needs.

When choosing cabinets, you will need to consider the following factors.

  • Style
