You do not want to choose a style or design you'll regret very soon down the road. The beauty of custom built cabinetry is in the quality and craftsmanship. It is evident and far superior to anything prefab. And having a professional come to your home, do the measurements, ask you exactly what you want and offer suggestions, and then return to you with beautifully handcrafted cabinet doors and install them for you can be well-worth the added expense.

The first thing you'll need to do is decide on a design. Custom cabinets allow you to create your kitchen cabinet doors with any style you can imagine. Do you prefer a modern or contemporary look, or are you more of a traditionalist? Maybe you like a more eclectic or transitional look.

Once you decide on the overall design, you can narrow down your choice in cabinetry style. Cabinet doors generally come in four styles. Flat-panel, raised-panel, slab and accent. Flat-panel cabinet doors have a flat center panel and look best with traditional or transitional designs, though they can go with a contemporary look as well. Raised-panel doors have a raised center panel with a profile or contour around it. They are also best with a traditional or transitional design. Slab doors are a flat slab of wood with no panels or accents and are best for contemporary and modern looks. Accent doors are usually more for decoration than functionality, but a bank of glass-fronted cabinet doors is effective in opening up a room and showing off beautiful china, for example.

You'll need to decide what, if any, accents you'll include. Will you have glass inserts on some of the doors or a unique one-of-a-kind pattern carved into the wood panels? Geometric fretwork or blades of grass or any embellishments, such as molding and muntins, can be carved or added with custom cabinets, so bear that in mind. You can also add scrollwork cutout patterns and intricate designs on a few cabinets for accent and decoration or all of them for something whimsical and unique. From contemporary to rustic to Shaker to traditional, with custom-built cabinet doors, the sky is the limit on how much of your personality you want to shine through, and you have high-quality work that will last you for many years to come.
