5 Glass Cabinet Doors

Glass cabinet doors are a great way to inject style and depth into any kitchen design. Opting for glass panel cabinet doors for your kitchen design adds depth because you are now about to see to the back of the cabinet box, glass cabinet doors extend the lines of sight in your kitchen making it feel larger. However, you will need to keep these cabinets clean and free from clutter to enjoy this benefit.

4 Arched Cabinet Doors

Arched cabinet doors are perfect for adding sophistication and tradition to your kitchen designs. Arched doors are available in both recessed and raised panel styles, so coordinating a square and arched cabinet door won’t be an issue. Typically, when combining arched and square cabinet doors, you want to install the arched cabinet doors on your wall cabinets with the square cabinet doors are on the base cabinets. 


3 Raised Square Panel Cabinet Doors

If you are interested in creating traditional kitchen cabinet designs, then you should browse our raised panel cabinet door options. Raised panel doors feature a detailed frame surrounding a panel that has the same thickness as the frame. While not always the case, many raised panel doors will feature ornate detailing.

It features a stunning frame with engaging inside and outside edge detail. In addition, it also features a beautifully designed frame and superior construction. Opt for one of our select wood grades and a stain finish to create a classic kitchen design that will last for years to come. 


2 Recessed Square Panel Cabinet Doors

Recessed square panel cabinet doors have been one of the more sought-after designs in recent years. These doors feature a sleek flat-panel surrounded by a detailed frame. The level of detail on these doors varies widely from the most minimalistic to the most ornate. For example, a stunning example of an ornate recessed panel cabinet door is our Woodhaven cabinet door. This door features a gorgeous rope detailing surrounding the panel with a mitered joint construction for added interest.

The Shaker door utilizes only straight lines to highlight the strength and quality of the construction. These doors can be perfect for traditional and transitional kitchen designs alike. 


1 Slab Cabinet Doors

One of the most ubiquitous cabinet door designs is slab cabinet doors and drawer fronts. Slab-style cabinet doors and fronts do not have a panel like the other door styles we have discussed thus far. Slab-style doors can be made from both solid woods and composite materials, so finding the right style won’t be an issue. Often, slab cabinet doors are mounting with a full overlay, meaning that you cannot see any of the cabinet boxes when the cabinet doors are closed.
