Some cabinet styles work better for contemporary than others. Same goes for traditional. Transitional styles can bridge them both. Do you want a few fancy accent cabinets or a more streamlined consistent look? Once you can answer these questions you'll be able to focus on the kitchen cabinet door style that is right for you.
A few main factors will likely help guide your kitchen cabinet design choices. The first is whether or not you wish to reflect the overall design of your home in the kitchen design. Most kitchens do adhere to the prevailing design aesthetic of the home, but it's not entirely uncommon to find a kitchen that's its own space, reflecting a design departure in whole or in part.
Cabinet doors can be made from many different wood species and the design style you want will have to be considered when choosing what material you want your cabinet doors to be made of in order to make sure the style is compatible. A knotted pine or hickory wood is not going to work with a contemporary or modern design, especially if you are going to stain it instead of paint, but it is a beautiful choice for an outdoors-like rustic or country look.
