Thousands of Cabinet Door Styles Available
We offer hundreds of thousands of possible door styles so that you can get exactly what you want for your kitchen, bath, or any other room! Our most popular choices are offered in our collections of Bargain Favorites and our Stylish Deals at our best prices. If you can't find what you're looking for there, you can design your own door using the many, many profiles in our Unlimited Styles offering.
Mitered vs Cope and Stick Joint Styles
Most doors are known as 5-piece doors, made of horizontal top and bottom rails, vertical left and right stiles and a panel which can be either flat (recessed) or raised. The rails and stiles together are known as the frame.
The joinery in the corners of the frame -- that is, how the rails and stiles are connected -- is an important consideration in choosing a door. Mitered door corners are attached on a 45-degree angle. Alternatively, Cope and Stick doors have stiles that extend fully from top to bottom and rails that connect in between them using a tongue-in-groove joint. We use a fingerjoint and dowel system to support the mitered corners to keep them strong and stable but Cope and Stick corners are considered even more stable and less likely to be impacted by expansion caused by humidity. However, mitered joints allow for more ornate framing designs.
Cabinet Door Frame Design Options
With many of our door options, you can choose an outside edge profile and an inside edge profile (sometimes called a framing bead). Each profile option can significantly alter the look of the door, making it traditional, like a shaker style, or modern or contemporary, but most don't cost any extra! (These profile options will be selectable using a 3-D cross-section view tool after you pick your basic door style.)
Many mitered doors and applied molding doors have pre-defined inside edge and/or outside edge profiles which cannot be changed.
When choosing your door style options, pay attention to the framing width, ranging from 1-3/4" to 3", which can significantly impact the look of the cabinet door. All of our door and drawer front frames are 3/4" thick.
Panel Design Options
The panel raise is the slope of the panel from the inside edge of the frame to the flat face of the panel. (Flat panel doors either have a 1/4" veneered plywood panel or a thicker, solid wood panel.) The visible portion of this slope typically ranges from 1" to 1-1/2" wide, but could be less or more depending on the design. It slope can be a smooth slant or a gentle cove or a variety of other interesting options. Again, these are selectable after you choose your door style.
Applied Molding Door Designs
Applied molding doors use decorative trim molding along the inside edge of the frame to bring more sophistication to the appearance of the door.
We offer French Lite mullion and frame-only doors that are ready for glass (or other insert of your choice). We do not provide the glass, but these doors come standard with a retainer molding which holds 1/8" thick glass.
