The cabinet doors are the most prominent aspect of your new cabinets, making them an important part of the entire design. Different styles will vary in price, with elaborate door styles attracting high price tags.
Wellborn has plenty of cabinet door styles to choose from. Whatever your taste; traditional, contemporary, or country; there is a style for you. Some of the door styles available from Wellborn include:
- Recessed: This is on the opposite end of the raised panel door and is typically a more simple style. The simplicity of recessed doors ensures that they can match seamlessly with a variety of decor. The Prairie Door is an example of this style.
- Raised: If you want to give your cabinets some depth, then go for raised door types. Raised cabinet doors come in a variety of designs consisting of both simple and intricate detailing, depending on the room character you are going for. Raised cabinet doors are especially ideal for vintage, antique, and country decors.
- Slab: Slab doors are flat, simple and a minimalist look. Slab doors are solid with no framing or panels. This style is ideal for contemporary or modern decor kitchens and bathrooms.
This is just a small sample of the many styles available. Others include inset, louvered, imperial, beadboard and thermofoil. Note that within these styles, there are multiple other sub styles with differing designs.

Do not just look at the type of wood or style of a cabinet; also consider the functional features. For example, what sliding mechanism do the drawers use. Basic cabinets have 3/4 extension self closing side mount sliders.
But most cabinet drawers will have some sort of mechanism that makes it easy to open and close. Usually, drawers have slides mounted on the bottom and/or edges of the drawer.
Other features that come in handy include Lazy Susan turntables for deep cabinets, self-closing doors, drawers, silverware organizers, wine racks, and pull out shelves. The more extra accessory items a cabinet has, the more it will cost you.
