Think Outside of the Box
Think outside of the box, so to speak, when it comes to your kitchen cabinets. If you want to do something different, consider door options such as glass inserts, stenciled fronts, fabric coverings, or chalkboard doors. There are lots of options available for cabinet door design. Please take a look at some of them to make your kitchen cabinet doors distinctive.
A Wide Array of Choices
Each cabinet style is unique, but you can consider specific general categories when choosing the right door for your kitchen.
Raised Panel Doors
This style features center panels that are raised, beveled or contoured. The Classic Walnut (h), Ivory White (h), and Avalon (JA) styles are good examples. These are most often found in traditional or transitional kitchen designs.
Flat Panel Doors
These are at home in almost any kitchen. The center panel is flat, which gives a sleeker profile and allows these designs to fit anything from traditional through contemporary designs. Oxford Ice, Cambridge Grey, and Weathered Elm are representative of this style.
Shaker Style Doors
This rustic design evokes the shaker style of furniture and features clean lines and simple yet solid construction. The Soda (JA), Modern Slate (h), and White Shaker styles fall into this category. While traditional in their heritage, they are most often found in transitional and contemporary kitchen designs.
Not pictured to the right but available, this style door features no raised details or multi-panel construction. Instead, the door is a single, flat slab of wood or MDF. This is the sleekest profile available and is almost always found in contemporary kitchens.
