When it comes to upgrading your home with a luxury makeover, your colour palette and soft furnishings are some of the first things to be considered, but often, simple yet impactful features like your interior and exterior doors are forgotten. One of the most under-estimated changes you can make in your home is replacing your doors – after all, they’re the first thing both you and your guests see when entering your house and moving between the various rooms inside it, so when you think about it, it makes perfect sense.

Making the right first impression is important when hosting family, friends and acquaintances for canapés and drinks, dinner parties and barbecues, so if you’re planning to change things up a bit in your property for the summer season, starting with your doors will guarantee that you’re welcoming guests into your rooms in just the right way. The biggest question? What type of doors are on-trend right now, and which will work well in your own humble abode?

One type of door that never falls out of favour is the shaker-style door, which harks back to the 18th century, when the religious group ‘Shakers’ was formed after breaking away from the perhaps better-known Quakers. Today, the doors have nothing to do with religion, but at the time, they were designed by the group as internal or cabinet doors with a central panel surrounded by a raised rectangular frame, with two stiles and two rails, and are known for being minimalistic – which means they suit both modern and traditional homes and integrate into a range of different luxury aesthetics with effortless ease.

Thanks to the versatility and timelessness of examples like Cworkshop’s tailor-made Shaker-style doors, they’ve enjoyed immense popularity over the years – but in 2022, they’re set to come into their own and become a vital feature of the modern luxury home. The perfect choice for contemporary and bespoke kitchens, durability, and thus, longevity is a key draw. Given that this authentic and beautiful style never goes out of fashion, they’re a savvy investment for the future, too.

Here are some of the top reasons to consider shaker-style doors for your home this summer and beyond – because these doors don’t just look good, but will last for years to come.

There’s always a size to fit

From drawer fronts to floor-to-ceiling doors, no matter the size of your room, you’re promised a design that fits. Because shaker-style doors are entirely bespoke, you can have them made to measure to ensure they meet your requirements, so there’s no need to worry about splashing out on something that ends up being too big or small.

You can choose a finish to add character

All shaker-style doors are not created equal, and by choosing a beautiful and unique finish to add colour and texture, you can create a unique look and feel that’s the perfect match for your luxury home. Give your cabinets character by having them painted with a smooth finish or with brushstrokes in a colour that fits your interior décor. They’ll combine seamlessly with any room in your house, no matter the colour or the aesthetic. And, if you’re adding them to rather minimalistic homes, they’ll make an impact on their own.

They’re versatile – and can be used far beyond kitchens alone

Although you’d mainly expect to see shakers in the kitchen, these doors will add aesthetic flair and style to any room. From the living room and dining room to the bedroom, they’ll work just about anywhere you want to put them – so if you’re keen to keep a uniform feel throughout your home to create a sense of flow throughout, then you’re onto a winner with these.

The bottom line

If you’re looking for an easy way to up-level your home this season without all the hassle and stress that comes with renovating and redecorating, then switching up your doors is a quick and easy way to add interest and aesthetic appeal. Shaker doors are the most sophisticated choice for any luxury home and will do the job with effortless ease.
