If you're ready to update your kitchen but don't want to spend thousands on new custom kitchen cabinets, upgrading just your cabinet doors might be the perfect option. Kitchen Tune-Up offers a wide variety of options that don't require replacing your cabinets. Cabinet redooring and refacing can completely change your kitchen's look in no time without the cost or time investment of a major remodel! This overview of some of today's top cabinet door styles will help point you in the right direction.
Shaker-style cabinets are some of the simplest, versatile and most popular on the market. The five-piece construction includes a solid backboard and four simple pieces forming a frame around the edge. Shaker cabinet doors work well in traditional to transitional kitchens, complementing a huge variety of home styles depending on the finish and hardware you choose to complete the look.
Louvered cabinets offer an eye-catching alternative to traditional solid cabinet doors. Louvered cabinets are constructed from fixed, angled slats, much like old-fashioned shutters or wooden blinds. These cabinet doors add a unique architectural element that works particularly well in modern and contemporary kitchens, but they typically come with a much higher price tag than their simpler counterparts.
Another favorite for contemporary kitchens, slab cabinet doors are both cost-effective and attractive. Slab doors are flat and free from any adornment, including framing or routed edges for a clean look.
"Distressed" refers more to the finish of the doors than to the design of the doors themselves, but it's hugely popular today among those who love old-world, cottage, or shabby chic style. Distressed cabinets are usually finished with a solid color, which is then artfully sanded and smoothed to create a well-loved, worn look.
If you adore French country or cottage-style decor, beadboard cabinet doors offer a brilliant place to start in your kitchen. The quintessential beadboard cabinet doors are white with simple hardware. You can't beat the bright, clean feel that beadboard lends to a space, but keep in mind that cleaning dust (or flying food from your mixer) from all those little grooves could be quite a chore.
Rigid Thermofoil (RTF) doors are among the most cost-effective on this list, and they're available in a wide variety of styles. They're long lasting, available in a variety of colors and faux wood grains, and budget-friendly. Easy care and consistent look makes RTF doors a top seller.
