Custom kitchen cabinet doors have an understated sophistication that look beautiful in any setting. Remember that dark cabinets show dirt more quickly than lighter colors and will require additional care. Finishes or stains offer a variety of alternative colors and finishes, if you prefer. Some of these decorative coats add texture to the surface, such as crackling, distressing or glazing.
Kitchen Cabinet Wood Types Kitchen cabinets can be made from dozens of woods including Oak, Maple, Pine, Cherry, Hickory, Poplar, Alder and Birch. Hickory and Oak are the hardest and the heaviest. Cherry, Birch and Maple are considered to be well suited to cabinetry. Less expensive and more plentiful woods such as Alder and Poplar work best with glazed finishes used in creating an 'antique' look. Pine is a soft wood that can be more prone to dents and scratches.
There are three different styles of doors being made today for kitchen cabinets: raised panel, recessed panel, or slab. In addition, there are many cabinet designs you can choose from. Most kitchens today have traditional, contemporary, country, or Shaker style cabinets.
What if you are not able to afford redesigning experts? Well then you can do the work yourself. There are many self help books on kitchen improvement and cabinet designs that will show you how to do every step by yourself. First, you will have to search for a design that you can replicate in your kitchen for a low cost. Kitchen design magazines are filled with information on how to do just that. Next, by using these self help books you can get started with building your own kitchen's cabinets. You can do most of the work on redesigning those kitchen cabinets but, later on you will have to hire a kitchen design professional to finish the work off. Hence, not only do you save money but, also give a professional finish to your kitchen and it's cabinets.
Which you get is also dependent on how much room your home has available. It's important to know how much space you have available. If you buy cabinets that are too big, while you can sometimes take them back and get a refund, it still is a pain to go through all that hassle.
