8 Popular Cabinet Door Styles for Kitchens of All Kinds

Cabinet doors are one of the most visible and potentially expensive design elements in the kitchen. That’s why the style you choose is so important. Here are some of the most popular styles. You’re sure to find one which fits your tastes and budget.

Shaker-style. The most common door style in kitchens today, Shaker-style doors have become popular because their simple style lends itself to just about any decor — from contemporary to traditional — with variations in wood species, stains, paint colors and hardware.

Louvered. Adding a distinct architectural style to kitchen cabinetry is one of the major advantages of louvered kitchen cabinets. When built with a space between each slat, they’re ideal for applications that require ventilation — such as cabinets near a radiator.

Flat. Simple but stylish, and without expensive details, flat-panel cabinet doors are a great fit for today’s kitchens. Choose from wood or decorative laminate, which tends to be more budget friendly and offers a greater variety of colors and sheens.

Inset. One of them most expensive door styles on the market, inset cabinet doors, with their classic look, will keep your kitchen in vogue for generations. Inset doors usually require exposed hinges, which might add to the cost.

Distressed. Dreaming of having an antique-style kitchen? Then you’ll love distressed-looking cabinets. Just choose a door style, and have your cabinetmaker apply your desired distressing technique/s, such as rubbed-off corners or occasional intents. Be prepared to pay an added 15 to 20 percent for the distressed treatment.

Beadboard. If you love the cottage style, you won’t be able to resist beadboard door panels. Taking their cues from traditional beadboard paneling, all-white beadboard cabinetry will give your kitchen a bright, clean feel.

Thermofoil. Known for durability and cost efficiency, Thermofoil doors are molded out of MDF (medium-density fiberboard), wrapped in a plastic-type coating and then baked under intense heat to create an impervious seal. They come only in solid colors and imitation wood grain.

Custom. Can’t find a door style that fits your design concept? Ask a local designer or craftsperson to help you create your personalized design.
