Stunning Shaker-style Doors in 2022

Do you want shaker-style doors for your kitchen in 2022?

Are you bored of your current kitchen doors? Too glossy? Are they the wrong colour? Or just too flat and boring?

Well, here at Colourmy, we might just be able to help you get what you want, and in colour you want for much less money than you might think when considering kitchen spraying and your doors made into shaker-style doors.

When we create shaker-style doors from your existing doors, there are a few steps that we need to follow. We can’t do them the traditional way with rails and stiles and an independent panel because we need to utilise the existing door slab, so we do them in a way that will allow us to use existing hinges but give you a thicker door that looks and has the characteristics of a solid wood door but without the expense of solid wood.

If you have an 18mm MDF door, we’ll use 6mm Moisture resistant MDF to make your shaker-style door 24mm thick. It may mean your hinges need an update to the market leader and long-lasting Blum hinge- the bonus is these hinges have a switchable soft close function, so you decide which doors you’d like to close slowly.

We can also make you new doors in much the same way that will be more economical than choosing a very cost-prohibitive real wood version.

Kitchen cupboard doors with failed laminate

Once the laminate has started to fail on your existing kitchen units, it will need to be removed. It can’t be stuck back on and isn’t a sound substrate for the new sprayed coating.
