Door Styles

We have hundreds of door styles available, and can custom-make any design you desire! We group the styles into three categories for easier identification:

Contemporary style puts the emphasis on the cabinet material’s colour and texture with a clean flat-panel approach, forgoing the depth of three dimensions for a minimalist approach.

Transitional styles represent the first departure towards the more sparse modern look, yet still retain hints of design details, such as bevelling and sunken panels.

Traditional styles tend to feature more ornate or elaborate design, harkening back to Victorian or Edwardian times, when the subtleties of hand-made finishings were valued for their extra attention to detail.

Species / Materials

Wood Types

Each type of tree is unique species with different characteristics in the growth patterns that show in the wood.

Some woods have beautiful grain and texture, and a light stain helps emphasize these qualities. Others are chosen for their price or strength, better suited to solid colour paint due to aesthetic . Weight, strength, and price are other factors.
