The style of each unique cabinet design is defined by several components: door style, finish and wood species. Further embellish your cabinets with a selection of edging, moulding and center panels appropriate to your custom design. See our list of cabinet features and wood species.

Door Styles

The fundamental building block of cabinetry design is door style. Cabinet Innovations offers over 200 different door styles, from traditional to contemporary designs. Here we share a selection of our most popular doors to inspire your imagination. Our designers will create your perfect combination of door styles, wood species and finishes.

  • Slab A slab door has the appearance of a solid piece of wood, with no raised or recessed profile. It is typically used in contemporary designs, offering clean, sleek lines.
  • Recessed Panel A flat panel is held between the stiles and rails similar to a picture frame. This style is often used in contemporary, transitional, and traditional applications dependent upon the many different edge designs and moldings available.
  • Raised Panel A raised panel consists of a center panel that is raised above or even with the door frame. The raised panel can have several shapes. Several edge designs and molding are available with a raised panel door. This style is typically traditional.


Each of our product lines offer multi-step finishes designed to highlight the beauty of the wood, and all are protected with a catalyzed varnish for lifetime durability. Some of the following time-tested quality furniture finishing techniques are used to create the many finishes that satisfy a wide range of personal tastes and lifestyles.  Wood-Mode uses time-tested furniture finishing techniques to create an incredible variety of looks tailored to any home. Whether it is a solid color or grain-enhancing stain, our multi-step process highlights the beauty of the wood, while a catalyzed oven-baked topcoat protects the finish for a lifetime of beauty and durability.

  • Stain Finishes are designed to show off the unique patterns of the wood grain. By wetting the wood to raise the grain before hand-staining each piece, Wood-Mode produces rich colors that enhance the wood’s natural beauty, while glazing and physical distressing options create a distinctive patina.
  • Opaque Finishes are a solid opaque color, then enhanced with glaze and distressed for a more custom look. Our opaque finishes receive high-quality sealer, primer and catalyzed color coats to ensure beauty and lifetime durability. Extensive hand-sanding is performed between each catalyzed color coat, ensuring a satin smooth surface.
  • Distressed Finishes Time and use give furniture a distinctive look. Wood-Mode adds a variety of techniques to our quality stain and opaque finishes to recreate the signs of aging. Whether it’s the soft patina of a well cared for heirloom or the wear marks of generations of heavy use, Wood-Mode can create the distressed finish you have in mind.
  • Custom Finishes We strive to offer a wide selection of finish options, however, there will inevitably be times when our colors are not quite right for your project. For that reason we offer a custom color matching process to help you get exactly the color you need. Whether the color is on a piece of wallpaper, a coffee mug or a section of your grandfather’s barn floor, if it is what makes your project come together, we want to make it happen.
