One popular type of accent cabinet door is the mullion style. A mullion style kitchen cabinet door makes use of mullions or vertical and horizontal members which separates glass panes or screens, acting as a decorative architectural element for doors and windows. Mullions may either be curved, straight, arched or in a diamond pattern. Aside from functioning as an decorative embellishment, the vertical stiles in a mullion kitchen cabinet also acts as a protection against glass breakage and as an additional door support. The mullion style cabinet door typically makes use of glass inserts which are placed at the back of the cabinet door. It is also known as the “window style” because of its resemblance to a mullioned window. The mullion kitchen cabinet design is also a variation of the glass insert cabinet, but stiles are added to create sort of like a “French window” inspired design.
The glass insert kitchen cabinet style makes use of a glass panel instead of a full solid wood cabinet door face. Also known as the glass framed door, this type of kitchen cabinet design can use either clear glass, smoked or frosted glass, colored glass or textured glass. The most common type of glass panel used for this design is the clear glass which allows the users to see the contents of the cabinets without having to open the door. Alternatively, frosted glass can be used if you want to keep clutter out of sight while still providing variation in the finishes and breaking off the heaviness of solid wood cabinetry. Frosted glass is also more commonly used for more modern and contemporary designs.
