Cabinet Door Framing Beads

When it comes to cabinetry, the little details count. For example, the inside edge of a cabinet door frame may seem unassuming, but it can help create a level of unexpected sophistication. This design element can also produce clean lines and a modern look in a kitchen. Conestoga Wood Specialties has several styles of cabinet door framing beads available, enabling you to offer a wide range of cabinet door styles to your customers.

What Are Door Beads?

Cabinet doors come in a range of styles, including recessed door styles that feature beading. Recessed door panels have a frame that surrounds a depressed center panel. The inner edge of the frame can be plain and flat or beaded. Door beads come in various cuts and styles, such as square or ogee cuts.

Why Choose Wooden Beading for Doors?

Little details make a big difference in a kitchen. Wooden beading helps to set a style of cabinet door apart from the rest. Instead of a plain, run-of-the-mill door style, you can offer your customers multiple options that work with their particular preferences. 

Choosing wooden beading, rather than cabinet doors made from particleboard, shows your customers that you care about the quality and reliability of the products you’re selling. Wood has several benefits over particleboard, including:

  • Higher moisture resistance: Kitchens are hot and humid spaces and cabinet doors are exposed to moisture regularly, so their material matters. Wood is much more durable than options like particleboard and can stand up to the environment of a kitchen, making it a great material for cabinets exposed to high humidity levels. It’s important to remember that although wood is a better option than something like particleboard, it’s not an ideal choice for humid areas.
  • Improved construction: Wood, particularly hardwood species, holds on to fasteners better than particleboard and can be constructed using sturdy joining methods. This material is also easier to use when cutting beading into the frame of a wood cabinet door.
  • Greater strength and durability: Cabinet doors need to consist of resilient materials because of people opening and closing them frequently, pots and pans slamming into them and so on. Wood can stand up to the daily stresses cabinet doors experience, and stay looking good doing it. 

Choosing Framing Beads to Match a Kitchen’s Style

Framing beads should coordinate with the overall style of a kitchen. We have a range of bead styles available, whether you’re helping a customer design a traditional kitchen, a farmhouse kitchen or a contemporary kitchen. Keep in mind that traditional kitchen styles feature elegant, softly curving lines and intricate details while transitional or contemporary styles often feature straight and sleek lines. 

If you’re not sure which framing beads will work for the styles your customers want, we’re happy to help you choose.
