Some trademark characteristics of Shaker kitchen cabinets include flat paneled doors with rail frames, sturdy construction with quality wood, and utilitarian designs. In terms of materials, Shaker-style cabinets tend to use high-quality local American woods traditionally found in the northeastern United States. Examples include durable woods such as cherry, maple, hickory and quartersawn oak.
Mission-style design is defined by straight lines and panel-faced doors with little or no adornment. The most common material used in mission-style kitchen cabinets is oak, particularly American white oak. Occasionally cherry can be used as well as this is considered a more elegant and durable wood. Mission-style kitchen cabinets are usually made by skilled carpenters because of their unique construction, which results in a more durable, dependable and long-lasting collection of cabinets. Because of this emphasis on custom-made cabinetry, creating a mission-style kitchen design can be costly. Both the cost of the wood and the cost of the labor decrease the likelihood of creating a budget-friendly mission-style kitchen; however, the aesthetic and durable results may very well be worth the extra expense.
