Most cabinet doors still use a form of contoured design, in which frames and panels are constructed so that the cabinet faces are dimensional rather than flat. This raised panel design, such as is found in Shaker-style cabinets, gives a very traditional look. However, flat-panel doors, otherwise known as slab cabinet doors, are increasing in popularity, largely because they lend a modern look to any kitchen or bathroom.
Wood Cabinets: Paint adheres best over a scuffed surface, making true wood cabinets a great candidate for painting. Sand the surface to prep it for paint and the result is a better bond and smoother finish. This is especially important if your wood cabinets are already stained or have a glossy finish - you will need to get through this finish layer first, either with sandpaper.
If you are like most people, your cabinets take up the most visible space in your kitchen. That is great when they are in good shape; but if they are not as beautiful as they could be, we will show you how to paint your kitchen cabinets like a pro.
The cabinet style can make a big difference to the cost, because a very easy cabinet door is much cheaper than one with lots of details. The kind of finish may also influence the cost. If this is a problem, you can paint or stain your cabinet to save cash on your own. Finally, wood species will change the price. Some wood is cheaper than others, so if the cost is a problem, you can choose a less expensive wood and stain it like your choice.
