Cabinet Doors



Cabinet doors come in hundreds of styles, many materials, and an endless array of finishes. Your options for cabinet door style include:

Slab Doors

If you like clean lines, a slab door may be the choice for you. A flat door that essentially looks like a slab of wood, metal or other material, these doors eschew panels. Add pizzazz to an MDF door by routing a detailed edge profile.

Raised Panel Doors

A panel, usually made by joining pieces of solid stock lumber with adhesive, is secured to the door's frame. Raised panels generally measure between 1/2" and 3/4" thick. A routed edge profile tends to give the door a more elegant appearance.

Recessed Panel Doors

The recessed panel door is a flat panel affixed inside a frame constructed with miter or mortise and tenon joints. The resulting appearance has a picture frame-type look and a simpler, more country or transitional appearance.

Curved Panel Doors

The top portion of this door's decorative panel curves upward in a gentle arch. The panel itself is generally raised.

Cathedral Panel Doors

A cathedral-type arch is incorporated into the upper rail of this raised or recessed panel.

Beadboard Panel Doors

Typically found in a recessed panel, beadboard uses routed beaded details to create a casual country style.

Routed Doors

A single piece of engineered wood material (such as MDF) is shaped to take on the appearance of a recessed or raised panel within the door, then painted or covered in laminate.
