There are many different types and designs for a cabinet door. The design is usually dependent on the location of the cabinets. There is a different design for kitchen cabinet doors when compared to the cabinet doors of those that are found in the bedroom. The design is sometimes considered and is based from the style of the door. Laminate wrapped cabinet doors are a better option compared with stain cabinet doors which is located in the kitchen.
Another way is to stain the cabinet. Staining the cabinet will add color to the cabinet which normally has a natural color. It will also make the wood glow more and even prevent early damages for the wood pieces. Another style which is almost similar to staining is painting. There are a lot of colors of paint available in the hardware. You can even mix your own color to achieve the right hue or darkness that you prefer. The paint color can make the cabinets look smooth or glossy, depending on type of paint used. The only disadvantage of painting the cabinets is that on later time, cracks will appear in areas like the joints. Cracks are due to the frequent shrinking and expanding of the solid wood during the change of weather conditions.
The Japanese may actually be the first people to use what we refer to today as sliding closet doors. These doors essentially follow the commonly accepted definition of a door that moves sideways or in an up and down motion. They still serve the same purpose as they did then, to manage space, provide ease of use and highlight or disguise internal or external features of a structure.
