If you're shopping for unfinished kitchen cabinet doors, the first consideration will be style. Do you want to add a sleek, modern touch to your cabinets, or are you looking for a more traditional design? Crisp lines and angular cutouts will work best with a modern design, whereas Shaker or Craftsman-style cabinets provide a more traditional look.

Once you've settled on a style, you'll need to choose your wood. Cherry is a very high-end choice, known for its excellent durability and an attractive natural color, ranging from deep brown to red. Maple, oak and hickory are also top-quality choices. Pine works well for a rustic, country kitchen look. Exotic woods like mahogany, ebony and bamboo are at the top of the price spectrum, but they're known for extreme durability and a uniquely attractive unfinished appearance.

Finally, you'll need to decide if a fully unfinished look is right for your kitchen, or if you want to paint or stain your new doors and cabinets. Your options are virtually unlimited, but keep in mind that certain woods accept stain better than others—so if it's your plan to stain, do some research up front to ensure the wood will comply with your plan.
