The first decision to make when considering replacement kitchen cabinet doors is whether you want new or re-faced doors. Re-facing existing doors will cost you significantly less, but there is a significant amount of labor involved if you go the DIY route here. With re-facing, you'll just need to decide on the new finish, stain or paint you'll be adding to your cabinet doors, remove and refinish the doors and cabinets, and then re-install the doors.

If replacing the cabinet doors is your plan, the main structure of your cabinets will stay in place, so you'll still save on costs for demolition and construction. And you'll have less DIY labor to worry about, since you'll just be removing the existing doors and replacing them with new ones. But you'll still have plenty to decide in terms of materials, styles and colors.

In terms of materials for replacement kitchen cabinet doors, chances are you'll want the cabinets themselves to be your guide, but this isn't necessarily a requirement. If you've decided to switch materials for your cabinet doors, you can in some cases refinish the cabinets themselves to match the doors. But in most cases you'll want the door materials to match the cabinets, in which case you'll be working with one of various woods, wood veneers or laminate materials.
