1. Shaker

In kitchens today, one of the most common door styles is the shaker-style cabinet door. There is a frame in this five-piece flat-panel style, which is made from four pieces. For the fifth, there is a single flat center panel. It is from the distinctive Shaker furniture style, from where the Shaker cabinetry gets its name. This style emphasizes utility and uses simples, as well as clean lines. The reason behind the popularity of shaker-style doors is that their simple style can suit any decoration- from contemporary to traditional- with variations in wood species, paint colors, hardware and stains.

2. Louvre

Horizontal wood slats are generally used on furniture pieces, windows and interior doors, but they have the ability to add a touch of distinct architectural style to your kitchen cabinetry. But these beauties are expensive. You will find many louvre vented doors that have spaces between each slat. This makes them great for cabinets that need ventilation – like a dedicated clothes drying cabinet in a laundry room, a cabinet near a radiator or cabinetry for DVD players and cable boxes.

3. Inset

This style can be regarded as one of the most luxurious cabinet door styles in the market. But it delivers a classic look that lasts for years. As these doors are set inside of the cabinet, they are called inset doors. Extremely precise measurements are needed to design and construct the door, so that it can be opened and closed properly without any difficulty. 

4. Flat

The flat-panel cabinet door is simple yet stylish and there is no expensive detail. Its minimalist form and hard lines is a great fit for modern and contemporary interiors. There are many flat doors that are available in decorative laminate or wood. Laminate is not only durable, but also, it offers a large variety of sheens as well as colors.

5. Beadboard

Are you in love with cottage style? Well, beadboard will be perfect for you. In this style, the center panel of the cabinet doors are made in such a way that they look like traditional beadboard paneling. If you want to give your kitchen a clean and bright feel, you can go for all-white beadboard cabinetry.

If you live in Houston, you can contact a local kitchen designer so that she or he can help you to create a customized design that best suits your kitchen.
