Shape and form will make or break the modern appearance of kitchen cabinets. A modern quality kitchen cabinet door is a flat slab without excessive ornamentation or detail. You won’t find decorative carvings, raised panels, or crown molding on these cabinets. The designs are deliberately sleek and flat.
Custom kitchen cabinet doors are those which are “made to order” according to the specific requirements and preferences of the client. However, this option is considered to be expensive because of the labor, time and effort that goes into it. We cover custom kitchen cabinets in further detail including types of hardware, finishes and door types below.
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.
An inset kitchen cabinet style is characterized by a design in which the drawers and doors fully fit inside the cabinet face frame openings. Typically, most kitchen cabinet styles use the “overlay” construction in which the doors and the headers are slightly larger than the openings in the frame, thus they appear to be slightly raised. With such, the door and the headers also seem to be constructed in an overlapping manner.
