Shaker Elite Bead Board:
Standard Thermofoil Closet Doors & Drawers
Sample Transitional Style Closet Doors and Drawers in Shaker Elite Bead Board
Shaker Elite is a one-piece recessed panel door in the transitional style. It features a simple inside bevel abutting the recessed panel which is shaped to mimic bead board. The outside of the door panel is a clean, square cut edge with no bevel. It evokes the traditional bead board that was frequenty used in vintage buildings. As a transitional piece, it is very versatile and works well with a variety of applications. It has a friendly, informal aesthetic. Shaker Elite is a standard Closet Works door profile using thermofoil technology and is considered eco-friendly. Thermofoil doors, drawer fronts, mouldings and accessories are machined out of a 5′ x 8′ sheet of 100% recycled, CARB II compliant medium-density fiber board (MDF). Water-based glue is applied and one of our many laminate colors are membrane-pressed onto the component parts. It is available in all of our Closet Works laminate color choices except for Canvas, Frequency, Chino and the high gloss Stylelite® product line. Shaker doors and drawers are also available open frame — meaning they can accept inserts such as glass or mesh panels.

NOTE: All Closet Works doors and drawer fronts are 3/4" solid core material and have excellent durability. MDF is often more stable than solid wood and stands up better to changes in heat and humidity. Solid wood doors typically expand and contract both horizontally and vertically when temperatures and humidity rise or fall. Because of this, cabinets, doors and paneling made from solid wood require a higher level of care and maintenance. Thermofoil doors made from MDF are a great low maintenence, lower cost alternative to wood — and they do not expand or contract. However, if you like the profile of our Shaker door but prefer solid wood, see our Unity door/drawer front style.
