Kitchen Cabinets: All About Doors

When it comes to kitchen cabinets installed as part of a remodeling project, a great deal of emphasis is often placed on the cabinet door style. If you’ve ever taken notice of model kitchens depicted on the pages of interior design magazines, you’ve probably wanted to emulate a few details here and there. Here’s a look at the most popular kitchen cabinet door styles.

Flat – As indicated, flat doors are devoid of any other accoutrements to the door surface itself. Typically appropriate for modern interior designs and sporting wood or laminate finishes, a flat kitchen cabinet door has a simple, long handle in the horizontal centerline, and a small round metal peg for cabinets and a two-door parting at the center.

Louvered – Often touted as one of the pricier options when it comes to custom kitchen cabinet designs, louvered doors have horizontal slats that do not necessarily function as shutters. Some kitchen experts claim that louvered cabinet doors may work when you’ve designated a cabinet for something that needs to be ventilated.

Shaker – A common item in many of today’s kitchens, a shaker cabinet door comprises four precut panels, with a fifth panel on the center of its face. Many interior remodelers recommend shaker cabinet doors that are easy to integrate with any design scheme without appearing tacked-on.
