Kitchen door ideas

Which kitchen doors are best?

A clever choice of kitchen doors can help give your home a truly individual look. In fact, each door should be seen as an opportunity to add a unique style accent.

Door ideas for the kitchen

The door you choose for your kitchen should tie in with your theme, but should also suit your lifestyle. 

  • Oak doors are a timeless choice, while grey is a great option for modern kitchens.
  • White doors can brighten the room, and become a real focal point.
  • Space-saving sliding doors add a stylish element of surprise.
  • Panel doors are the ideal option for achieving a neat, classic look.
  • Choose glazed doors to allow light into the room.

Internal doors

For your pantry, consider a bi-fold door. Mounted and hung from a track, they are a particularly good choice for small spaces, where a full swinging door is not possible. 

If your kitchen leads through to a dining or living room, you could add a dramatic touch with some French doors. Not only do these make a great visual impact, but they help circulate light around your home. 

For any other walk-in kitchen cupboards, consider a hard-wearing panel door, or a cost-effective flush door that offers both simplicity and durability. Both these styles tie in nicely with most kitchen designs, from traditional to modern.
