            Kitchen Doors Buying Guide

            Whether planning a new renovation, updating a home, or refreshing a rental property, this kitchen door buying will make it easy to pick the right option for a practical and stylish space. Making a huge impact on the overall aesthetic of a cooking area, door-fronts require careful thought and planning. That is why this kitchen buying guide covers all the different colours, finishes, sizes, and designs available to help homeowners craft a scheme that suits their interior or lifestyle.

            What is the most popular door style?

            The popularity of a door style will change depending on the desired aesthetic. Five-piece fronts are the obvious choice when curating a refined or traditional space, while integrated handle designs are still one of the best ways to create a modern scheme. For those wanting an option that can be adapted to suit a variety of decors, slabs are a safe bet.

            What are the different colours available?

            Colour has a huge impact on a design, so consider all the options carefully. White, creams, and greys have a neutral quality, making them easy to adapt to any interior. Meanwhile, blues and greens evoke the senses and bring outdoor elements, like the earth and sky, into a home. For maximum impact, statement shades of black or red are a great choice, while timber tones recreate the look of natural elements for a cosy space. Finally, paintable designs offer complete customisation, making it easy to create punchy palettes full of personality.

            What finishes are available?


            Offering a muted look, this tactile finish fits seamlessly into contemporary schemes and is available in a variety of colours. It is great for intensifying darker tones for a striking effect or giving pale hues an understated appearance.
