Sample Transitional Style Closet Doors and Drawers in Bella
Bella is a five piece recessed panel door in the transitional style. It is in our Shaker family of doors which also includes Shaker Mission, Shaker Elite and Unity, however, Bella is the only five piece laminate Shaker profile. It features a clean, simple, single square bevel abutting the recessed panel. The outside of the door panel is a clean, square cut with no bevel. As a transitional piece, it is very versatile and works well with a variety of applications, including Traditional, Transitional, Contemporary, and even Country design styles. Like the other Shaker profiles, it evokes the aesthetic of the Shaker people — known for their simple living, architecture, and high quality furniture. All Closet Works five piecelaminate doors are constructed in a similar fashion to a solid wood door in that each has five pieces that are fused together, giving it an authentic look without the premium price tag of a real wood product. Through mortise and tenon construction, the stiles and rails are glued and clamped around a center of 1/4″ thick, two-sided MDF (medium density fiberboard). Water-based glue is applied and one of our many laminate colors are membrane-pressed onto the component parts. Bella is considered eco-friendly due to its CARB II compliant status and the fact that the MDF core is 100% recycled product. It is available in limited color choices including White, Breakwater, River Rock, Summer Breeze, Vintage, White Chocolate and all VIVA™ premium laminate colors with the True Touch of Wood. Bella doors and drawers are also available open frame — meaning they can accept inserts such as glass or mesh panels.

NOTE: All Closet Works standard 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. Laminate 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 Bella door but prefer solid wood, see our Unity door/drawer front style.
