Kitchen Cabinet Door Accessories and Components

When planning a new kitchen or an update to an existing one, exploring the range of kitchen cabinet door accessories and components can be an exciting part of the project. The wide range of options can add great style to your kitchen cabinets.

The most common kitchen cabinet door accessory is the hardware—the door handles and drawer pulls on cabinets (usually made of metal). There are also many other options for spicing up your kitchen cabinet doors, starting with the door itself. With a little extra budget, you can explore custom cabinet doors with recessed or cutout designs, or, for an economical option, add molding to flat doors for a custom look that’s less expensive.

Antique hardware is a popular option—it can add a feeling of history to cabinets that might otherwise seem a bit staid. And “antique” doesn’t mean it has to come from the manor of a wealthy dowager—there are many faux-aged options offered by home improvement and design stores.

Another cabinet door accessory that adds style and “space” is glass. Glass or glass-paneled cabinet doors will open up your kitchen and allow you to display all your stylish cookware, dishware and kitchen collectibles. If you’re more interested in disguising clutter, try semi-transparent or leaded glass.

Your cabinet doors can be multifunctional, as well. Add a memo or chalk drawing board to one, and keep a household calendar or let the kids (and adults!) express their artistic side.

Lastly, to contrast the look of sleek, stainless steel appliances, consider gently distressing your cabinets or adding a textured paint or stain to connote history and create a cozy, welcoming kitchen.
