CABINET DOOR REPLACEMENT

Cabinet Door Replacement: Choosing New Cabinet Doors

Avoid the messy and expensive work of tearing out your existing builder-grade or old-style kitchen cabinets. Save your money, paint the cabinet frames, and replace the cabinet doors and drawer fronts instead.

Options for Replacing Your Cabinet Doors

1. Cabinet Door Profiles

The cabinet profile you choose depends on the overall style of your kitchen. Consider design elements such as flooring, backsplash, countertops, trim and molding, appliances, lighting, and fixtures.

The centers of most cabinet doors are raised or recessed.

  • A raised panel is reminiscent of crown molding with a beveled border. It gives the cabinet door a three-dimensional look and works well in traditional style kitchens.
  • A recessed panel has a flat center with a raised border surrounding it for a smooth, modern look. The clean lines and simplicity of recessed Shaker cabinet doors fit any kitchen style.

2. Cabinet Overlay (Partial or Full)

They built standard kitchen cabinets of old as partial overlays. They didn't cover the face frames and left sizeable gaps between the doors and drawer fronts.

Full overlay cabinets cover as much of the cabinet face frame as possible for a clean, updated style. We strongly advise you choose the full overlay style when you order cabinets from us.
