Kitchen cabinet door question


I've looked online, but I cannot find what style these doors are called. I've been to HD & Lowes, and neither sell this style. If someone knows what they are called please let me know. Thanks.

Kitchen cabinet door question


If you look on the inside of the door hinge there is usually a clip attached with the manufacturers name on it. Or look on the sides or underside of the drawers for a stamp of the manufacturer.


There are only eight primary styles of kitchen cabinet doors which are as follows:
  1. Reveal overlay panel: Created by adding an overlay on the front of the door to create the appearance of a recessed panel while retaining the strength of a flat panel door.
  2. Flat panel: A flat, un-embellished door typically used in more contemporary style kitchens.
  3. Frame and panel: A plain center panel surrounded by a frame.
  4. Beaded frame and panel: The overlay panel has a beaded edge.
  5. Square raised panel: The center panel of these kitchen cabinet doors is raised slightly more than the edges of the door.
  6. Bead board panel: The panel uses a vertically grooved center panel for a more distinctive appearance.
  7. Curved raised panel: The same as a raised panel door, except that the top of the panel is slightly arched or curved.
  8. Cathedral panel: Another variation on the raised panel door, with a panel that has at the top the distinctive curves of a cathedral window.
Note: each manufacture will slightly change or modify the above doors to make it their own. So your closest bet would be # 5

Kitchen cabinet door question


Thanks for your quick replies. I figured it to be a raised panel. But is there not a name to go with the style? I've looked all over the cabinets. Unless it is on the backside I cannot find any maker's markings. I thought there would be a name simular to "Colonial Maple" "Georgetown" etc....

I'm trying to find more doors if not more cabinets.

If you canít find any markings what so ever of the manufacture then your best bet is to take a door sample to a kitchen manufacturer in your area to see if he can match the profile and stain.

Kitchen cabinet door question


I am confused as usual. Epson listed all the "standard" types of doors made, by name and design type. You appear to have a raised panel door, as you already surmised. Are you looking for the manufacturer? And why do you care? Any reasonably competent cabinetmaker can match the style and wood type so you can get more doors. If you are looking for them at a big box store because you want a discount, I guess I can understand why you would want a name, but styles change over time, and it may be hard to match.

Some companies, like Kraftmaid, put their name in the drawer box. But as Daniel has said, these can be duplicated locally by a cabinet maker.
If you have no luck with that, there are companes that make just doors and drawers. I've used a company called Keystone in Pennsylvania. They matched the color I needed perfectly. I didn't need them to match a door style though. A simple Google search will let you look through the door styles of dozens of companies.
