Critique My DIY Kitchen Cupboard Doors


I made up a mock up stainless steel door with a bead board center insert.

I know that I will be using custom stainless cabinets on my upcoming home renovation but am not sure of what doors I will use.

I took one door off my existing uppers and tossed this door up to see if it grows on me.

The border is a random orbital finish that takes away the bright sheen that is normally found on stainless appliances.

Yay or nay. Don't worry, I can take it.

Thanks.

I will try some pics when it gets dark out as the light from the window is too bright in the background.

Looks good. Most people might not need new doors but just need an updated look. And this is a perfect kitchen cabinet for me.

Thanks for the feedback. I will leave the mock up there for about a year until the new house is ready before my final decision. I'll probably try different inserts in the meantime.

By the time I need them, I very well may just ask myself "what was I thinking?"

good to see that you at least have patience and are willing to look at it for a good while before making your final decision.
You are right, in 6 months or so, you could change your mind completely and end up with something you like even more.

that is a good idea. but, imho, i think it would look way better with a real wood insert and in a darker finished kitchen.

Someone will be catching their belt loop and banging their hand on those handles occasionally if there will be lower cabinets like that. I have a fear of spiked fences that are shorter than me for the same reason that I'd fear those handles. I could trip and impale something that I don't want impaled, which is most things I possess. I liked the look of the top picture where the insert looks darker, then I saw the white insert and didn't like it, now I'm not a fan of either. If you could do some photo editing, you may want to put several of the doors side by side to get a better idea of what the kitchen would really look like with a row of cabinets like that.

It's different, but a good kind of different. The center wood gives it an old look but not so old to make the "new" border look weird. You pulled it off man, good job.

Thanks.

I may try a wood veneer insert after I get back from my trip.

Thanks.

I like the style of handle but it's a little too "fat".

This one is 1/2" diameter. I swear I've seen them in 3/8" somewhere and not sticking out as much.
