An “Old World” or “Gilded Age” Look
What makes a Traditional Raised Panel door a Woodhaven Custom Cabinet? It depends on what type of door you are looking for. Our Fine Artisans and Woodworkers may use hand tools and carefully carve designs out a portion of the panel for that “untouched” hand-made look. Or, at Woodhaven – Buy Custom Raised Panel Cabinets Factory Direct NJ, NYC, Long Island, we also take advantage of computerized CNC woodworking equipment to ensure that each door we make has precise measurements and consistent quality. With CNC, less of the hand work is done by our Artisans than it used to be, but the custom-built raised panel cabinet doors Woodhaven produces are objectively consistent and better as a result.
What do we at Woodhaven Custom Cabinets mean when we say “Traditional Raised Panel cabinet doors”? Most cabinet doors you see utilize the “frame and panel” style, meaning they have a frame made of four boards surrounding a flat panel of wood. If the panel is flat and below the frame — like in our Woodhaven Shaker-style doors — it is known as a “recessed panel.” When the center portion of the panel is flush with the frame from added panels or architectural elements it becomes what is known as a Traditional Raised Panel door and Now you can Buy Custom Raised Panel Cabinets Factory Direct NJ NYC Long Island and SAVE Thousands!

The History of the Raised Panel Cabinet, and Why is it Traditional
Did you know kitchen cabinets as we know it didn’t exist until the 1920’s? For most of history, kitchen items were kept in stand-alone cabinets. In the 19th-century, the kitchen was often just a stove, sink, and preparation table with most other things kept elsewhere.
Designs began to change toward the end of that century, during the “Gilded Age” due largely to the efforts of Catharine Beecher after seeing the clever storage solutions inside the galley kitchen of a river boat. She imagined a home kitchen that was optimized for daily usage to eliminate the drudgery of cooking and cleaning. Thanks to the contributions of behavioral psychologists, interior designers, and countless home cooks, the “built-in” kitchen was born.
The public was eager to show off their new “built-in” kitchen spaces. People took design inspiration from the hand-crafted decorative doors used during the “Gilded Age” to create the Traditional Raised Panel cabinet door. These are the same designs we build at Woodhaven Custom Cabinets – Custom Raised Panel Cabinets Factory Direct NJ, NYC, Long Island.
