Those with inset shaker cabinets-please help

14 years ago

Hi- I am new to this forum & need some cabinet help. I have an old house with a small kitchen & want to do custom inset uppers. For inset/shaker style, if the total cabinet width is 23-24 inches wide, is this enough room to do a double door cabinet or will the center panel be too thin? Is there a standard range of widths for inset uppers when you do single door versus double door? I believe the shaker rail is usually 2 1/4 inches wide, but we can go more narrow if needed. How much room is allowed on each side of door for inset? Is 3/4 standard? The height of the cabinets will be 42 inches. If anyone has this width cab & pictures to send that would be really helpful.
