Your guide to selecting new cabinet doors

23 July 2021

The Kitchen is often considered the heart of the home, so when it comes to renovating your kitchen, there are many big decisions involved. As there are so many cheap cabinet doors on the market, it can be challenging to choose the best cabinet doors for your kitchen. So, here we offer some tips to help you select the best cabinet doors to ensure you get the most out of them.



Take this opportunity to update your kitchen so it keeps up with modern times. Chances are, kitchen designs have changed A LOT since your kitchen was last renovated. You can opt for a modern, sleek look or even try a more traditional style. Keep in mind though, you want to select a design that won’t become outdated in the near future.



While looks are important in your new kitchen, quality plays a key role in how long your new kitchen cabinet doors will last. Research the products and ensure you select well known, quality products for your new cabinet doors. All our MDF doors & drawer fronts are made using Australian Made MR (moisture resistant) MDF board, this material is an excellent choice to use for your cabinet doors.



Each kitchen caters to a different home, so the functionality of each kitchen will vary depending on the home and the people in it. This needs to be taken into consideration when selecting your new cabinet doors. If you have young children or are an avid baker, you will require cabinet doors that are easy to clean when things get messy. Vinyl wrap for example, can be easily wiped down with a damp cloth to remove spills or marks. If you have teenagers or inside pets on the other hand, you might want something with a little more durability on the outside to protect against the everyday life. This is when a product such as acrylic, that can be buffed out slightly, would be better suited to your needs. If you have plenty of beautiful serving ware that deserves to be displayed in your kitchen, you will want to look into glass cabinet doors as an option. Whatever the design you go for, ensure you have thought about the functionality as well.



When choosing your cabinet doors, don’t forget to think about your preferred hardware as well.
