Step-by-step DIY Kitchen Cabinet Doors Guide

  • Select the right material

First of all select the material that you would like to use for building your kitchen cabinet doors. There are plenty of options available to you for this purpose depending upon the type of usage that you want. If you want to install the doors just below the countertop that are susceptible to water spills, then you should go for synthetic boards and avoid any kind of woodwork there. For the overhead cabinets that need to be more showy, you can choose Birchwood as it is very easy to paint over and gives a premium look.

  • Measure out the cabinet dimensions

Carefully measure out the dimensions of your kitchen cabinets and the size of doors that you want. You should measure out a little extra part so that processing losses don’t make it shorter later on.

  • Apply paint to decorate

  • Fix the doors in place
