The cabinet door style you select is a reflection of your personality and taste. Some cabinet door styles can lend themselves to a more contemporary look while others lend themselves to more of a traditional style. Transitional door styles can bridge between both contemporary and traditional. Defining your style will help you to select the right cabinet door style for your kitchen or bath.

Cabinet Door Styles

  • Raised Panel Doors offer an added depth to your cabinetry with a raised center panel. The raised center panel works well combined with other door style features to give a more traditional look to your cabinetry design.
  • Recessed Panel Doors add another dimension of visual depth with its recessed center panel. These doors can feature a simple outline of the center panel or a more elaborate profile treatment which can add another visual interest.
