Homeowners today are asking for clean lines and transitional style in their kitchen cabinets and other cabinets throughout the home.

Shaker style, flat panels and slab doors are often chosen for transitional cabinets. The distinctive cabinet door designs shown in the photo above are the perfect solution, and are not the average shaker or slab door. They are among the top selling cabinet door styles for transitional cabinet design.

The small variation to detail on the inside edge, like a stepped detail, bevel, bead or bullnose, and/or small bevel or bullnose on the outside edge creates interest without being ornate or traditional, and sets these doors apart.

A Combination Frame wide 3-1/8″ rail (rail=horizontal – top and bottom frame pieces) with a standard 2-3/8″stile (stile=vertical – right/left frame pieces) is another way to add a unique look and keep the design simple and transitional. TaylorCraft’s Combination Frame CF101 cabinet door line has several design options and can be ordered with vertical or horizontal panel grain.

For a more modern look, opt for a wider stile and rail with TaylorCraft Cabinet Door Company’s C101 Wide 3-1/8″ stile and rail option shown on the white oak door on the top left and the cherry door on the bottom right.  All of these door styles are stunning in natural wood as shown, or ordered in paint grade material and painted any color from crisp white to black.
