Although you may think that you need a completely upgraded kitchen, new cabinetry can cost you thousands of dollars, and oftentimes it can take weeks to get the job done right. Well, a smarter alternative to a costly remodel might be to simply add new custom kitchen doors to your existing cabinetry. New doors can breath fresh life into your old cabinets, and when selecting a new door style, you can choose one that helps set a design theme for your kitchen.

Most Popular Styles of Custom Kitchen Cabinet Doors

  1. Glass panel cabinet doors show off your dishware and other kitchen collectibles that are displayed in your cabinets. There are several types of glass to choose from, such as clear, frosted, or seeded glass, which is a antique looking glass that highlights the small bubbles and other imperfections often found in old glass.
  2. Raised panel cabinet doors are one of the most traditional style of doors available, and there are many different panel profiles that you can select from. While you might choose a square raised panel for a rustic farmhouse kitchen, an arched raised panel would be more appropriate for a Tuscany style kitchen.
  3. Flat panel cabinet doors are a good choice for modern looking kitchens because they are sleek, and their smooth panels offer a simple and contemporary aesthetic. Flat panel cabinets can be made from clear-coated wood, colored melamine, or laminated plywood.

Reconditioning your old cabinets by installing new doors on them is a cost effective way to transform your existing kitchen into your dream kitchen.
