Door Styles:
A Cabinet Comparison
Are you trying to pinpoint the aesthetic of your next cabinet project? With so much emphasis on the look of your cabinets, selecting the right door style is a significant decision in the design process. Let's compare the three most popular styles: Slab, Recessed Panel and Raised Panel.
Slab cabinet doors are flat-panel doors that don't use any contours to make the cabinet door look raised or recessed. They are, quite literally, a flat slab that can instantly transform your cabinets to a more modern look. When a wood stain is chosen, they are a wood veneer panel so that no seams are seen. Other popular finishes are laminate (textured or matte), acrylic (glossy) and painted. A new variation of the slab is the "Slim Shaker" as some manufacturers like to call it. It takes the slab door to a new level as the photo above shows by adding a thin detail to a slab door edge.
Recessed Panel
Recessed Panel cabinet doors... most commonly called "Shaker"... are flat-center-panel doors. The "true" square Shaker style door, shown in blue above, was a craze for MANY years, and will remain classic. For those who thought it was just a little too plain, manufacturers started doing "modified" Shaker styles. These incorporated small details on the inside panel of the door or on the outside profile. At CHW, this "modified" shaker is 80% of our cabinetry sales. People love the transitional feel they have... not too contemporary and not too traditional... in fact it lends itself to anything from modern kitchen design to rustic farmhouse.
Raised Panel
Raised Panel cabinet doors have an elevated center panel giving them additional depth and texture to their appearance. They are associated with a traditional design style, and are commonly paired with heavier moldings and trims. We are seeing a trend of more people going back to this look which took a rest for a decade or so. It seems as stains are returning so is the more traditional feel to cabinetry design.

This Month's Feature Recipe
Spring Panzanella
There may be sourdough in this recipe, but with scallions, peas, fresh herbs, and greens tossed in a bright vinaigrette, this totally counts as a salad. This gorgeous dish brings together lots of spring flavors, like crunchy greens, fresh herbs, scallions and peas.

  • 1/2 small loaf sourdough bread, preferably a few days old (about 12 oz)
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 2 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 2 scallions, white and light green parts finely chopped, dark green parts thinly sliced
  • 2 Persian cucumbers, halved lengthwise and then sliced
  • 1/2 c. fresh or frozen peas (thawed if frozen)
  • 2 c. mixed fresh herbs (such as parsley, basil, mint, dill)
  • 5 oz. mixed greens

  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Cut crusts off bread and tear bread into large pieces. On rimmed baking sheet, toss bread with 1 tablespoon oil and roast until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, remaining 3 tablespoons oil and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper; stir in chopped scallions.
