    "The style of door is called shaker and it’s like a frame around the sides of the door"

    "Shaker style kitchen cabinets use rail frame and panel construction with recessed panel doors. This is what gives shaker cabinet doors their classic clean lines. The hinges are usually hidden, so the eye is naturally drawn to other details like paint and finish
    Shaker style it's originaly made from hardwoods or pine but also now any company would also make them from cupboard, or mdf painted in solid colours or vinyl wrapped."

    A shaker cabinet actually refers to the style of door and not the cabinet itself. Shaker style is when the door has a raised square edged finish round the outside of the face of the door.

    If you search for shaker doors you will see the style.

    Hope that helps"
