Flat Panel Cabinet Doors
Cabinet doors are the most prominent feature of any kitchen. They set the tone for the entire space, and while there are lots of different design elements that can enhance your cabinets, they all come down to the doors themselves.
There are 3 main cabinet door designs: Raised Panel, Flat (or Recessed) Panel, and Shaker. While raised panel doors are more traditional, flat panels offer a minimalist look that can blend into many kitchen styles.
They pair well with a variety of stain finishes or paint colors, and they can even be used to create a sleek, modern style that pairs beautifully with any hardware. Some homeowners worry that a flat panel will look too simple, but it allows the other kitchen features to really shine. The streamlined look also makes it easier to clean, which is a major bonus! They are also often the least expensive option. They are constructed of one full piece, versus shaker cabinet doors, which have 2 stiles and 2 rails on each side, creating a unique uniform trim.
Beveled Edge Cabinet Doors
Incorporating cabinet doors into your design can completely change the feel of your space. You can choose from a variety of door and drawer front styles to match your personality, style, or kitchen décor. The type of style you choose for your cabinets will make a bigger impact than you might think.
For example, if you like the classic style of shaker cabinet doors, then you can also consider the style that has a bevel on the inside edge (Shaker bevel). This style is still timeless but allows for a bit of contrast in the room if you choose a dark colored finish for your cabinetry.
Other options that are popular with clients include beveled slab doors, which create a clean look without any interruption of the handle hardware. These types of doors can be made of a variety of products, including solid hardwood or wood composites like MDF. They are great choices for a contemporary look and can be used with both framed or frameless cabinet construction.
Wrought Iron Cabinet Doors
Few people realize how much impact the choice of knobs and handles can have on their cabinets, cupboards and drawers. Most simply accept the default knob and handle that comes attached to their cabinet doors, and never give it another thought. The wrought iron flourish silhouette cabinet door knob is the perfect way to add an artistic and decorative touch to your home. This black cabinet door handle silhouette is sure to impress anyone who sees it, and will instantly convey a sense of sophisticated flair and pronounced elegance.
