How to Choose the Right Style Cabinet Door

If you are building a new home or remodeling your current place, it’s no secret that there a lot of options to choose from. Whether it’s a kitchen, bathroom, or any other space in your house, now is the time to truly imagine and create your dream room - complete with custom cabinets. The cabinets, while functional, are also the focal point which attracts the eye. For this reason, you want to take your time and make sure you get the exact style that you will love for years to come. Below are some of the most popular choices right now to give you a starting point for your custom work:

Shaker Cabinets

This cabinet style is derived from distinctive Shaker furniture style, which uses simple, clean lines and emphasizes utility. The shaker cabinet door is the most common door style in kitchens today for several reasons. The simple style lends itself to just about any decor, from Modern to Traditional, with variations in wood species, stains, paint colors and hardware.

Flat Cabinets

If you’re into a modern-styled home, a flat cabinet is probably just the style for you. Simple but very stylish, the flat-panel cabinet door is totally void of any opulent details. Its hard lines and minimalist form make it a great fit for contemporary tastes.

Inset Cabinets

An inset-styled cabinet is a classic look that will last for generations. The inset door gets its name because it is set inside of the cabinet frame, while typical cabinet doors rest on the outside of the frame. This door style usually requires exposed hinges rather than the typical concealed hinges of other door styles, so it’s perfect for those who want their kitchen to look a little unique without being too wild.

Distressed Cabinets

If you’ve always dreamed of having an antique-style kitchen, then you’ll love the distressed-looking cabinets. A distressed feeling will look fabulous with a variety of wood species and colors, so don’t box yourself in just to get that old-fashioned appeal you’ve been wanting. Get creative!

Beadboard Cabinets

If you love the cottage look, but not quite as distressed as “shabby chic”, you’re probably looking for beadboard. The center panel of the cabinet doors in this cool style are made to look like traditional beadboard paneling. While all-white beadboard cabinetry can give your kitchen a bright and clean feel, feel free to explore other colors before making your final decision.
