Getting Started Is Easy to Do
If all of this has left you eager to get started, but the many options have left you feeling hesitant or stuck in place, we can offer a few tips:
- What wood variety is right for your style? Try to always remember that the replacement cabinet doors are meant to reflect your changing style. While it can be tempting to go with something similar to the existing style, it would defeat the purpose. The same can be said of the type of wood you’ll choose. Will it be stained wood that shows off its gorgeous grain? Will it need to be a heavier-duty wood? Maybe you want something lightweight? The point is to start with a variety of wood that matches your NEW kitchen or bathroom style.
- Mitered or cope and stick? There are two ways that replacement cabinet doors are joined (built). They are traditional mitering, which has the wood cut at an angle to create the four corners, much like a picture frame. Then there is cope and stick jointing that uses top and bottom rails that fit flush into the sides, and which will often use a mitered joint. These really help to define the overall style of the door, with an Arts and Crafts home often featuring a cope and stick jointing.
- Are you going to reuse hinges? This may sound silly, but a home with vintage hardware in the kitchen or bath may lose some of its style if the hinges are removed and replaced. You may also be opting to upgrade to hidden or concealed hinges, meaning you wouldn’t keep the old ones. Either way, you need to know that the choice will affect the measurements of your doors and impact the overall style of the finished kitchen.
- What happens to the old doors? One of the most frustrating things to realize after the fact is that the removal of your old kitchen cabinet doors means that you are left with a hefty stack of lumber. You need to make plans in advance to properly dispose of the doors, and in a proper way. You may find someone who will take them off of your hands or your contractor may do that for you.
- Have you considered glass doors? One choice that many homeowners overlook is the option for glass panels on their replacement cabinet doors. In both the kitchen and the bath they can add a lot of light and a unique esthetic. There are a lot of different styles of glass doors from which to choose and you don’t have to make every replacement cabinet door a glass-panel door. Think of it like a china cabinet or a place to show off your favorite dinnerware or crockery!
- Don’t forget pulls and knobs. As you work your way through all of the style choices for replacement cabinet doors, don’t forget that new hardware can enhance and support your style. For example, glass knobs or pulls pair beautifully with mullioned or glass doors to give a vintage feel, while a satin metal pull or knob can add sleek and contemporary style to darkly stained wooden doors and drawers.
