Cabinets first existed as pieces of furniture which may or may not had a set of drawers with it. As the cabinets held precious things like paper and other things of value, the cabinets usually featured fine workmanship. Gradually, over time, cabinets were mounted on the wall and became part of the kitchen as they are known nowadays. If you wish to renovate your kitchen but cannot afford to do so, buying new kitchen units doors can be a cheaper alternative.
Cabinet shops, whether online or brick and mortar, will have kitchen units doors. These doors may be pre-made and made from a variety of finishes and materials. They can range from cheap cabinets made of veneered press-board to solid wood. The more expensive doors will be the ones made from solid wood like cherry or walnut. By adding new knobs for the kitchen cabinet doors, you will help to change the look of the kitchen even more.
Architectural surplus or building banks
If you prefer to go with a new cabinet door that is new to you but actually old, then going to an architectural surplus store or building bank will be a source for you. There, you will find older kitchen units doors or even smaller doors that you can adapt to your purpose. Even old wood-framed windows can work as cupboard doors, giving your cabinets style and interest that they never had before. By refinishing the wood of these doors, you will add to the new kitchen look.
If you are not happy with the above options, you can either make the replacement doors for your cabinets yourself or have them made for you. A local carpenter who specialises in cabinets and finish work can craft new doors to your specification and either finish them for you or let you finish them yourself. If you are skilled enough, you can make your own doors with the wood of your choice as well as the finish. When the doors are complete, you can add new door pulls and drawer pulls to create a new look and style for the kitchen. By making custom doors, you have the most control over your new cabinet doors.
