Cabinet Door Styles for 2020

Nothing makes as big a statement as your kitchen or bathroom cabinets since they do take up the largest part of the kitchen. While color and choice of wood are important when buying cabinets, it is the door style that really sets the tone and gives the visual appeal. We offer a broad selection of door styles including shaker, inset, and flat-panel, but because we are custom cabinet builders we are not limited to these. Here we will discuss the current trends in cabinet door styles but are always open to whatever designs our customers have envisioned.

Most popular cabinet door style?

Shaker style. There are many cabinet door styles but the shaker style has remained among the top favorite year after year. Its simplistic five-piece flat panel look allows it to blend in with any design style and compliments many others. This is a great choice if you enjoy a minimalist style.

Other popular cabinet door styles

  • Raised panel – this style has a center panel of the cabinet door that is gently raised. It can have arches or even square edges. There are several profiles that can be in the center panel.
  • Flat-panel – the center panel of the door will be flat and there are not any profile details. This is a lot like the shaker door but the inside and outside edge profiles are different and can have numerous combinations. These doors are popular for a more transitional contemporary style. 
  • Slab – this style is a great option for the modern style.  

Raised and flat panel doors have many options that you can choose from for the inside edge profiles and outside edge profiles. This allows you to have more than a hundred types of door style combinations. Cabinet companies will usually pick a few select popular door styles to offer. At Walker Woodworking we can make any combination of door styles, however, anything outside of our elaborate standard offerings would come at an additional cost.

Which cabinet styles is best for a kitchen?

This depends on the look and style you are trying to achieve. The shaker style is a great choice since it is versatile and blends with many design styles and is a classic, timeless option. Flat-panel doors are a popular choice with current kitchen trends that lend to a more transitional contemporary style. Raised panel doors have been frequently chosen as a design style for traditional kitchens.

Which cabinet styles is best for a bathroom?

Shaker and flat-panel are all great choices for the bathroom. The bathroom is not the center of attention so it does not need to be as elaborate but it should reflect your style. Door styles can affect the overall cost of the cabinets. The bathroom vanity may offer some savings by choosing a more simplistic door style such as the flat panel or shaker style. 

Which style reflects you?

It is important that both the kitchen, as the heart of the home, and your bathroom are a reflection of the homeowners. More than anyone else, you will be the one spending the most time in these spaces so it matters that you like it. With countless options to choose from, there is sure to be something that is representational of you.
