By adding glass fronted doors to your kitchen cabinets, you create a practical display area for beautiful kitchen appliances and crockery. You need to be disciplined and keep it tidy as it is a show and tell display. It also adds a reflective element that gives an airy feel to the room and therefore works especially well in small kitchens. Glass fronted doors are available in a wide range of designs and finishes. Consider using lighting in your glass fronted cabinets to really make your display come to life.

5. Two or Three Panel

Two and three panel kitchen cabinet doors are very colonial, but when teamed with slick hardware it can also suit a slick, contemporary kitchen. They consist of either two or three recesses panels, set into a wooden frame. The frame can be simple or with added detail like beading on the interior. From distressed to contemporary, these style doors are very versatile.

6. Louvered

The horizontal lines of the wooden slats add a defined architectural element to the kitchen cabinetry. It’s also a practical solution for cabinets that needs ventilation. Other alternatives to this style are modern vertical slats and even cross hatch. Something to note with this style, is that it not only lets in air, but also moisture and dust – something to keep in mind in very humid or dusty areas, since they may require a lot of additional cleaning.

7. Custom Style
