Your first decision when considering modern kitchen cabinet doors is the type of material you want to use. If you're giving existing cabinets a face lift with modern doors, it's likely you'll want the original material to be your guide. If you're starting from scratch, laminate is a popular choice for modern kitchen cabinet doors, because it offers a refined, unadorned, efficient look that pairs well with other contemporary design touches. Many species of wood also work well for modern kitchen cabinet door styles, although there are a few you might want to steer clear of because of their particularly rustic appearance. Most species of pine fall into this category, because of their knotty surface and distinctly 'country kitchen' look.

One design touch that's quite common in modern kitchen cabinet design is glass. In particular, semi-opaque, leaded or patterned glass can add a stylish and attractive feature to modern kitchen cabinet door designs.

Once you've got a style in mind, you'll need to decide whether you want to purchase your kitchen cabinet doors prefabricated, have them semi-customized, or opt for a fully customized set of doors. Prefabricated or "stock" doors will be the least expensive and most efficient option. Semi-customized doors will potentially allow you to choose colors, hardware and finishes that are to your liking. And finally, custom doors will be the most expensive, but you'll have total freedom in terms of the design.
