Refacing your kitchen cabinets is a great way to rejuvenate your cooking space without needlessly replacing your existing cabinets. A set of replacement kitchen doors can bring a fresh, attractive look to your cabinetry without breaking the bank.

Replacement Kitchen Door Materials and Color

Not only can you find replacement kitchen doors in a variety of classic hardwoods, but fiberboard coated with contemporary vinyl laminate is getting more and more popular. Woods can be unfinished for a raw or rustic feel, or finished and stained. Vinyl laminate or Thermofoil doors come in a wide variety of colors.

Door Panel Shapes

Most cabinetry styles use a square door, but you'll find a long list of shapes and styles for raised or recessed panels in the door's center. Here are a few:

  • Arched panels come in either round or ogival shapes and lend a slightly Gothic feel to the door.
  • Mullioned panels have two or more panes of glass or clear acrylic polymer set into the door's face.
  • Slab doors feature sheer faces without center panels and customarily open with handles or knobs.

If your cabinets are starting to wear, either cosmetically or mechanically, replacement kitchen doors can be an affordable solution. Prices vary widely based on shape and style, but you can work with your local retailer to find the right replacement kitchen door to fit your needs and your budget.
