Door styles are among the first and primary considerations to take, here are some of the most common options:
- Raised Panel – has details that go up and down on the sides, and showcases rails that go across making for an ornate look. This is common in traditional kitchens with some of the most popular styles including Queen Anne, Colonial or Continental styles.
- Flat Panel – this feature, on the other hand, gives an inset look with the face flush in sight together with the groove in the frame.
- Glass Doors – this is among the kitchen cabinet styles that not only boosts aesthetics but also gives a whole new purpose to cabinets by creating display areas out of them. You can choose to have the door as a plain glass frame or have them with mullions.
- Mitered Doors – this features perfectly square jamb corners decorating the surface of a raised front or flat panel door. This option gives kitchens a touch of added dimensions.
- Shaker Style – this is among the most popular door profiles that homeowners choose because of the style flexibility that it offers. Shaker style doors are made distinct by the simple lines that make them perfect for whatever kitchen design from classic, traditional, casual, cottage, to sleek contemporary.
Wood and Finish
When it comes to wood choices, three of the most popular for manufacturing and building cabinets are maple, oak, and cherry. Because each holds a unique character to their grains as well as natural tone, it is important to consider which set of natural attributes would work great in your planned design from the smooth and fine grains of maple, dark richness of cherry, or the dramatic grains of oak. These then are made more interesting by the different finishes used to further polish the surface; and create and add exquisite appeal to kitchen cabinet styles.
