The type of the cabinet door and its shape give you the texture and feel of the wood. However, it is missing the rhythm and harmony that can come from its color and other decorations that it may have. A light colored raised panel will give the kitchen a much different look and appeal than a darker flat slab. Each cabinet door has its own personality and it must be looked at as the centerpiece of your kitchen.
There are a variety of types of a cabinet door you can get. These can range from a recessed panel, raised panel, curved panel, beadboard panel, and even a black flat slab. While the type of the door is a large part in choosing the right cabinet door for your kitchen, there are a variety of other factors that must be taken into consideration when knowing how you want to decorate the cabinet door. The items that should be looked at are the color and type of stain, the wood veneer, the color of the paint, polyester, and glass.
The type of wood you have chosen and the food wall murals you want to get go hand in hand. Some forms of wood take lighter stains much better and can accent the wood much better. This is also true for mid-range and darker colors. If you wish to have a lighter color to your kitchen, your best bet is to go with something like ash, birch, elm, oak, or maple. If you wish to have that mid-range look, a nice cherry wood will do the trick. If you would like to have that darker look, maple is the best choice here.
You may have noticed that some of the woods were mural texture more than once up above. There is a madness put behind this. When you stain a wood it is much better to go from a lighter colored wood and make it dark. It is virtually impossible to go from a dark colored wood and go lighter. To use an analogy it is easer to take a white color and make it blue. It would be much harder, if not impossible, to take the color blue and make it white. Woods such as rosewood, teak, or mahogany are prime examples to use for a clear finish. These woods have a wonderful color and a great texture.
