Help finding replacement cabinet doors?
 
Hi everyone, my wife an I recently bought a home that has essentially brand kitchen cabinets and counter tops. The only problem is, the previous owner must have owned a dog, because some of the lower cabinets have been gnawed on the corners. I would like to replcace these doors, but am at a loss as to how to find a match. I did quick check of the cabinets and such for markings that would indicate who made them, but could find none.

Can anyone give advice as to how I can find an exact match or maybe a place on the cabinets that I could check for markings as to who made them?

Thanks for the help.

Locate a cabinet shop close to you, they should be able to make you one or how ever many you need. You can count on them being high though as it cost quite a bit for them to set up on just a door or two.

Blink, Welcome to the Forum,
I assume that the house was recently remodeled with new cabinets.

If you cannot get any info from the previous owners about the origin, I would first check to see whether or not the cabinets came from one of the local Big Box stores.
Remove one of the damaged doors and take it to the local HD or LOWE'S and see if you can find a match in their kitchen department.

Let us know what happens.
Good Luck

Post a few pictures. There are companies that make doors, drawer faces and drawer boxes. They will even match the stain. Some will do custom, others have a set design list. I used Keystone in Pa. and was very happy with the results.
