Styles

The art of design depends mostly on two very important factors: Practical elements and Personal taste.

Whereas we have focussed mainly on the practical elements so far, this section is dedicated to the different styles currently available.  How to decide is up to you. It's a matter of personal taste.

Solid wood doors are extremely durable and brings out the true character of the wood.  Because it is a natural product, each door is intrinsically unique.  Solid wood doors are finished in a sprayed lacquer.

Duco doors are Supawood (MDF) doors finished in a sprayed lacquer.  MDF allows for more detailed edge and panel designs than boards with a chipboard core, making it ideal for innovative designs.

Supawood (MDF) is a very versatile material and any designer's dream.  A multitude of patterns and designs can be applied to it. A layer of decorative PVC sheeting can be wrapped through heat and bonded with high performance adhesives to simulate solid wood or any other material.  PVC wrap doors are easy to clean and water resistant.

The variety of cabinet door styles below lends a different look and feel to your cabinet installation.  Contemporary kitchens focus on easy-to-clean, flat panel doors.  Flat panel doors are most practical in today's busy lifestyle, where the cleaning effort needs to be cut down to a minimum.  One popular variant are Impact Doors.  Instead of the normal 0.4mm PVC edging, Impact doors normally have 3mm PVC edges, matching the colour of the door. As an alternative, Devin doors can also be used.  Devin doors have bevelled edges as seen on the photos below.

Postform doors are similar to Flat Panel doors, except for their rounded edge contours.  These edges allow for better water resistance, since there are no glue seams on the face of the door.

The Shaker style appeals to those who are looking for a bit more variation in the overall appearance of their home.  Shaker doors have a simple recessed panel design, and a very lightweight construction.

Raised panel doors are also framed doors, but the center panel is raised above the line of the frame.  This renders a more classical atmosphere.
