When it comes to kitchen cabinets, the door style is what will determine the aesthetic of your kitchen. Choose from any popular door style, or create a custom style to suit your taste. You can customize any popular style by using an unusual material or adding your own unique accents. Showcase your china with clear glass doors for the modern kitchen, choose traditional wood cabinets for the warm homey look or go for easy to clean laminate doors to lower your kitchen cost.
Shaker cabinet doors are one of the most popular door styles. They are created using 5 pieces of wood to form a frame with a recessed panel in the center. Their simple style lends itself to just about any decor, from contemporary to traditional, and can be created using a variety of materials and finishes.
Louvered cabinet doors are created using horizontal slats of wood down the whole door. This unique architectural style contributes to a contemporary, modern, or transitional feel. Louvered cabinet doors are also often used to enclose spaces that need ventilation, such as a clothes drying cabinet.
Simple but stylish, the flat-panel cabinet door creates a sleek, neat look. Its hard lines and minimalist form make it a great fit for contemporary and modern interiors.
Inset cabinet doors differ from other styles in that they sit within the door frame, rather than resting on the outside of it. This style is created using exact measurements for a perfect fit and usually requires an exterior hinge.
Distressed cabinet doors are used to make your cabinets appear antique. You can choose any door style and then have the corners rubbed off or otherwise create a worn, antique look.
There are a number of important things to consider to keep the process a smooth and easy one.
Are you looking to increase the home value with a better quality kitchen? If you hope to sell, stick to classic styles and designs. If your home is where you plan to stay go for custom cabinets and personal styles.
Don’t forget what cabinets are built for. Accessories and amenities are wonderful, but kitchen cabinetry needs to have enough room to store dishes and food.
Avoid choosing modern style cabinets in a Victorian style home. The different rooms and furnishing in the home should have similar tones and characteristics.
