5 Tips for Properly Storing Shaker Kitchen Cabinet Doors

12 Apr 2023

Store Them Flat:

Remember that it is crucial to keep cabinet doors and frames flat to avoid warping or bending. Place them on a flat surface like a table or shelf, and make sure they’re not stacked on top of each other.


Store In A Dry Area:

Moisture is the enemy of bespoke cabinet doors and frames. Avoid storing them in damp or humid areas like a basement or garage. Instead, store them in a dry area with good air circulation. A climate-controlled room or closet is an ideal storage location until you need the items.


Use Spacers:

To prevent your doors from touching each other, use spacers. You can use small pieces of wood or cardboard to create a gap between each door and frame. This will allow air to circulate around each piece, preventing uneven drying, and stopping the doors from sticking together.

Cover Them:

While it’s important to let air circulate around doors, frames, and shaker drawer fronts, it’s also crucial to protect them from dust and debris. Cover them with a breathable material like a cloth or paper. Avoid using plastic, as it can trap moisture and cause the doors and frames to warp.


Rotate Them:

Even if you follow all the above tips, solid timber cabinet doors or MDF doors can still warp over time. To prevent this from happening, rotate them every few weeks. This will ensure that each side of the door and frame receives equal exposure to air and will help prevent warping.
