Select the Ideal Finish for Your Kitchen’s Ambience

The design of a cabinet door isn’t the only thing that matters. Its color and finish play a huge role in the kitchen’s ambiance:

  • Dark tones tend to feel more elegant.
  • Lighter finishes add a spacious, positive vibe to the room.
  • Painted white cabinets are popular for contemporary styles.
  • Reddish hues are warm and evoke the feel of an Italian kitchen.
  • Clear hardwood finishes are perfect for rustic designs.

Minor differences matter. For example, true white flat-front cabinets are a great fit for mid-century modern and minimalist styles, but a slightly warmer tone of white gives country farmhouse kitchens a classic, relaxing appearance.

Choose the Perfect Cabinet Doors for Your Project

Few things are more important than cabinets for a kitchen’s style, personality and value. High-quality cabinet doors are designed to last a lifetime, so this is one area where close doesn’t cut it.

There’s a small but important difference between “looks great” and “looks perfect” for your kitchen. Once you’ve narrowed down your choice of cabinets to a few favorite styles, always request a sample cabinet door before moving ahead with the complete order.
