Kitchen Cabinet Door Ideas
Discover new ways to energize your kitchen with creative cabinet door options.
Add Variety to Kitchen Cabinets
To accommodate a small space, tall cabinets provide much-needed vertical storage. Installing upper cabinets of different heights and widths avoids a monotonous, boxy row of cabinets. Textured glass panels also lighten the look of this cabinetry wall.
Modify Existing Cabinets
The homeowners gave their existing cabinetry doors a fresh country look. They used subtle routing and added crossbars to create the style they craved.
Use Textured Glass
Replacing old cabinetry panels with seeded-glass inserts reflects light back into the room and reveals a hint of color from inside the cabinets. Seeded-glass panels also add a vintage touch.
Textured glass in upper cabinets helps define the open storage without demanding neatness. Mismatched dishware is muted behind textured glass panels.
Cabinet doors with a combination of wire-grill and glass panels mimic the look of fine antiques and showcase the homeowners' glassware and pottery collection.
Include Decorative Molding
Add character to cabinetry with traditional moldings. This decorative addition to understated, cream-color cabinets gives them a little extra energy.
Contrast a Dark Finish
Polka-dot glass panels and black-glazed zinc knobs accent the black-painted cabinet doors, glazed in cinnamon red for greater depth.
Pair Two Styles
White glass-panel cabinetry paired with a strong wood-grain cabinetry finish creates a stark contrast in this contemporary kitchen. The glass-front cabinets keep the room feeling light, while the wood adds warmth.
Use Mirror Panels
Dark cabinetry with mirrored panels rather than glass-front panels keeps the space feeling light and bright.
Create Regal Style
Faux bookcase cabinets cause this hardworking kitchen to be mistaken for the library. Here, mahogany cabinets -- and even the refrigerator -- masquerade as stately bookcases.
Combine Door Styles
Cabinets feature doors of varying panel styles for a gathered look. The large cabinet pulls support the kitchen's vintage cottage inspiration.
Use Stainless Steel
Upper cabinets in stainless steel complement the stone counters and backsplash. Their frosted-glass doors cloud views for a soft effect.
Decorative diamond muntins originally found in the home inspired a similar look on the kitchen windows and glass-front cabinets.
Stained-glass panels in upper-cabinet doors add color and Craftsman style.
Soften The Look
Upper cabinets fitted with frosted-glass doors offer a filtered view of their contents.
Easy to Maintain
Slab-style cabinet doors are easy to maintain because they don't have a lot of intricate moldings to clean. Reed-glass panels on some of the upper cabinets add variety.
Create a Clean Look
Textured glass fronts on select cabinets diffuse light and contrast with their highly reflective, stainless-steel frames.
