Studio 212 Interiors Shaker. The Shaker-style cabinet door is the most common door style in kitchens today. This five-piece flat-panel style has a frame made from four pieces and a single flat center panel for the fifth piece. Shaker cabinetry gets its name from the distinctive Shaker furniture style, which uses simple, clean lines and emphasizes utility. Shaker-style doors became 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. This classic style can work with a variety of budgets, depending on the wood used. Some manufacturers can even replace the center door panel with a more cost-effective material. Using a natural finish rather than a painted one could save you up to 20 percent on your purchase, too. Georgetown Development Louvered. Horizontal wood slats are typically used on windows, furniture pieces and interior doors, but they add a distinct architectural style to kitchen cabinetry. However, be aware that these beauties come with a heavy price tag.Many louvered doors have spaces between each slat, making them great for cabinets that require ventilation — like a cabinet near a radiator, a dedicated clothes drying cabinet in a laundry room or cabinetry for cable boxes and DVD players. Applegate Tran Interiors Flat. Simple but stylish, the flat-panel cabinet door is void of any expensive details. Its hard lines and minimalist form make it a great fit for contemporary and modern interiors.Many flat doors come in decorative laminate or wood. Laminate tends to be more budget friendly and offers a greater variety of colors and sheens. Dresser Homes Inset. Although this style tends to be one of the most expensive on the market, it’s a classic look that’ll last for generations. The inset door gets its name because it is set inside of the cabinet frame — typical cabinet doors rest on the outside of the frame. The door is designed and constructed with extremely precise measurements so that it nests inside the frame and opens and closes properly, even when the wood expands and contracts. This door style usually requires exposed hinges rather than the typical concealed hinges of other door styles that are included in the cost of the cabinet box. Make sure that your budget takes this into account — two hinges per door will quickly add up. GDC Construction Distressed. If you’ve always dreamed of having an antique-style kitchen, then you’ll love the distressed-looking cabinets available from most manufacturers. Choose any door style and opt to have the corners rubbed off or have other distressing techniques done for that age-old feeling. All this extra work will cost you, though; there’s usually a 15 to 20 percent upcharge for a tradesperson to actually destroy your brand-new doors. Pinto Designs and Associates Beadboard. Love cottage style? It doesn’t get more cottage chic than beadboard. The center panel of the cabinet doors in this style are made to look like traditional beadboard paneling. Beadboard was used in the past as a decorative wall treatment before plaster, drywall and paint became common. While all-white beadboard cabinetry can give your kitchen a bright and clean feel, all the little cracks and crevasses on this door style can be a pain to keep clean. JMA INTERIOR DESIGN Thermofoil. These 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. Durable and cost effective, they come only in solid colors and imitation wood grain. Often mass-produced, thermofoil cabinetry comes at very competitive price points. It’s durable, but it’s also extremely difficult to repair any damage to it. Some lighter colors can also yellow from sunlight and heat over time. Frederick + Frederick Architects Custom. Can’t find any door style on the market that really complements your unique design intention? Design your own! Contact a local designer or craftsperson to help you create a personalized design. This Shaker-style cabinet door has a center panel of corrugated metal instead of wood for an industrial and utilitarian look that can stand up to years of abuse.More help choosing kitchen cabinets and hardware

Squares and vertical rectangles are still the preferred designs for kitchen cabinets, but according to Masterbrand Cabinets, Inc., there is a rise in horizontal cabinetry. As cabinets get wider, there is less of a need to stack cabinets (if you have enough storage). This not only makes access much easier, but gives your kitchen a cleaner, more refined look.

When we say orange, we do not intend to turn your kitchen into the set of That 70s Show!

Even a single kitchen cabinet in orange will make its presence felt, and it is an easy way to infuse burnt orange accents into your kitchen.

Combine it with simple grey, white or even very light shades of blue to achieve this elusive poise!

We move from a fashionable bright shade to arguably the hottest neutral on the planet today. If you are starting to feel like grey is becoming more prominent all around you, then your observation is spot on. While many homeowners feel that grey for kitchen cabinets can be dull, that is hardly the truth. Warm, deep greys add sophistication and style with ease. But to truly experience the magic of grey cabinets in the kitchen, opt for textured finishes and hip patterns that elevate the cabinets in a sleek and minimal home.

We once tried to figure out all the shades of blue that can be used in the house, and as you might have guessed, the list is simply endless. Blue is an eternal favorite, and a hint of this beautiful color in the kitchen can have an uplifting influence on the ambiance of the room. Teal, turquoise, robin’s egg, navy and cyan; the list goes on and on. Blue kitchen cabinets are a welcome addition to any kitchen that seeks to embrace a coastal or nautical look.
