Slab cabinet doors are most often used in contemporary designs, as they are simply a flat slab of wood—smooth with no panels, contours or accents. Accent cabinet doors are more decorative than functional and are not used on all of the cabinets. They can be made of glass doors, louver doors, mullion doors, leaded glass doors and aluminum frames, among other styles. In the right setting, accent cabinet doors can blend in easily with any design style.
Knotted pine and hickory are great for the outdoorsy rustic look, and oak works well for something more traditional. Glass cabinet doors work well for both modern and traditional styles as the primary door type or as accent doors to reinforce the tone and design style you choose.
Shaker-style cabinetry features flat drawer fronts and cabinet doors with flat-face frames surrounding a flat recessed panel. An incised line of beading may surround the drawers and doors, as in this kitchen, as a subtle outline for emphasis. Here leaded-glass doors original to the 1882 house are installed in the upper cabinets to lighten the effect of so much cabinetry. Wide beaded-board backsplashes and simple white knobs respect the vintage character of the house, and classic Victorian green paint.
