Kitchen cabinet cabinets can sustain damage from use and cooking, and can compromise your kitchen's appearance. Installing new cabinets is costly, and in some cases it can be difficult to replicate the quality of well built cabinets, but new kitchen doors can revive your kitchen and save money.
3 considerations when buying new kitchen doors
Here are some things to consider when shopping for new kitchen doors:
- Your kitchen's style and layout. Is your kitchen traditional, ultra modern, or a combination of styles that work well for you? You can find new kitchen doors in many styles and materials suited to your decor. Consider your kitchen's layout: Will kitchen cabinets and their contents be visible from other rooms?
- Materials. Replacement kitchen cabinet doors are available in solid wood, wood veneer, laminate, and combinations of these along with glass or plastic panels to name a few possibilities. Combining solid cabinet doors with glazed cabinet doors provides visual interest and practicality if you want to see what's in certain kitchen cabinets. Check out brands including Thomasville, Walzcraft and KraftMaid.
- Your current cabinets' structure. Choosing kitchen doors compatible with your cabinets provides a relatively quick solution for updating your kitchen without the time, inconvenience, and cost of replacing your kitchen cabinets.
- Selecting kitchen door hardware. Select hinges, knobs, and door handles complementing your new kitchen doors. From sleek contemporary to antique reproduction and eclectic custom designs, you can find the perfect hardware for your new kitchen doors.
