Here at Naked Doors, we offer so many different door and drawer front styles, that you will simply be spoilt for choice. Our product is often the only option for people with a lower budget to get the designer kitchen they have dreamed of having for so long, so we want to have enough different style choices to ensure that people can create the kitchen they have always wanted. This blog post is a round up of just a few of our favourite door styles that we offer, with some images and recommendations to show you just how beautiful they can look in a kitchen.
First up in the list is the Painted Shaker Door. A timeless, classic door style that has been given a modern update with the option to be painted in colour of your choice. With a raised frame around a central panel, this door style is one that has been seen in kitchen designs for centuries. By choosing the painted option for this door style means that you can have a kitchen style that will never date, and that doesn’t feel old fashioned in any way. We love how the shaker door can also be used as a frameless kitchen front, which means the door sits on top of the cabinet carcass, and looks beautifully contemporary but still retains its timeless appeal. We recommend adding a cool handle to this door style to ensure it really stands out, like the leather handles added to the Brixton Kitchen below.
The one thing we decided when we started Naked Doors, was that we wanted to offer the option of a bespoke kitchen for people on a tighter budget. Many customers are now working on projects with a much smaller budget and the luxury of having a fully bespoke, designer kitchen is no longer a viable option for many people. People are looking for different ways to update their kitchen without a full renovation and often at a much lower price point. We wanted to offer an alternative to the high street retailers, who offer lower quality products and only in standard sizes. Naked Doors offers the chance to get the look of a designer bespoke Naked Kitchen and on a much lower budget.
The quality of our cabinet doors is unlike any other you’ll ever find in the industry. When purchasing doors from many companies on the market, you may think that you’re purchasing replacement doors that are going to last for many years. However, the majority of the time you’re actually purchasing doors that are worse quality than your current cabinet doors!
With Naked Doors however, we offer the most incredible quality solid doors that are unlike anything else on the market! Additionally, we are a completely bespoke company. Everything we make for our customers is bespoke, and unique to their measurements. We can create doors to fit any size cabinet and any brand!
Here at Naked Doors, we’re all about creating cost-effective solutions to make your kitchen look like you’ve always dreamed, without actually ripping it out and starting again.
As we manufacture bespoke replacement cabinet doors and drawer fronts, we believe that there are many options you can choose from to upgrade your kitchen, without having to fully renovate. Whilst upgrading your kitchen is important, alongside this you also need to make this a room that you want to spend time in and that is comfortable for all of the family.
Got an old tired IKEA kitchen that you absolutely hate the look of? We’ve created a range of doors that are compatible with the IKEA Metod range, so that you can have the look of a designer kitchen, with IKEA carcasses remaining underneath! An incredibly clever hack as not only does it make IKEA furniture look almost as if it was never from IKEA, but it’s also a brilliant way to update your kitchen with the least hassle and minimum cost possible!
With our replacement doors and drawer fronts, we also have certain suggestions we can make to help you choose the best style for your room. If you have a small, compact kitchen that doesn’t get much natural light, we would generally recommend a slab door style, as it reflects light beautifully and makes a room feel very open and spacious, whilst still being very contemporary.
Choosing a shaker style door will provide you with a very chic kitchen that is going to look timeless forever, but as both styles are so incredibly beautiful, they will work in any space!

Here at Naked Doors, we are always trying to find new ways to let people know about the quality and level of expertise that goes into our products. As a company, we’ve only ever used the highest quality timber, and we fully understand how to get the best out of this material, meaning the products we manufacture are of incredible quality. We produce beautiful replacement doors and drawer fronts for any kitchen, finished in any style, and in any size you want.

Our sister company Naked Kitchens creates the most beautiful, bespoke kitchens that are of the highest quality and are a true luxurious addition to any home. And whilst we only use transparent pricing, meaning our customers don’t pay more than is necessary for the quality of the kitchens, this option can still sometimes be out of peoples budgets.
And so we decided to create an option for people that still wanted the look of a Naked Kitchen, but without a large majority of the cost. Naked Doors offers you a designer kitchen look, where you supply the carcasses- either existing or new, and we will produce the doors to fit them perfectly. However, there are certain tips and tricks that you can do to upgrade your kitchen for less to make it look more and more like a designer kitchen without spending a lot of money or time.
Painting Walls and Cabinets
A fresh new colour in the kitchen is one of the easiest ways to instantly transform a room. By painting your walls it creates a whole new colour palette for the room, and gives you a whole realm of possibilities for accessorising. Another option is to paint your cabinets, to create an eye-catching feature for the room. Choosing to paint your walls is possibly the safer option as it is less of a statement and is easier to correct if you decide you do not like the colour. However, if you really do want to make a statement in this room, painting your cabinets and your walls the same colour will do this. It can be a risky move to make, as the wrong colour can make it far too over-powering, but if done in a beautiful rich colour and combined with other materials or colours it can work wonderfully. Colours that we are particularly loving at the moment are all from the earthy colour palette, including rich greens, oranges and reds. They add a luxurious warmth to the kitchen that is so incredibly comfortable and inviting in a room that you want to be the hub of the family life in your home.
There are certain things that can often put people off upgrading their kitchen; including time, money and effort. Having to be without a kitchen for a long period of time whilst going through the hassle of ripping out old carcasses, or not having the budget to install a whole new designer kitchen are all reasons why people choose to keep their existing kitchen. But there is a way to upgrade your kitchen and get the look of a designer kitchen without all of the hassle. Choosing to upgrade your existing kitchen with replacement cabinet doors and drawer fronts as opposed to installing a whole new kitchen is one of the easiest ways to do this.
At Naked Doors we offer luxurious bespoke solid hardwood cabinet doors and drawers to upgrade your room and get the kitchen you’ve always dreamed of owning, without the hassle and at a much lower cost than replacing a whole kitchen. In order to ensure the smoothest journey possible when upgrading your kitchen with Naked Doors however, there are a few steps that we recommend you take to help you make your choices and transform your kitchen as quickly as possible.
Measuring your old cabinets:
This is a necessary step, as in order to ensure your new doors and drawers fit your cabinets perfectly, you will need accurate measurements of your cabinet carcasses. As you may not have decided which cabinet door style you want for your kitchen, measuring methods for both styles have been included so that you can be as accurate as possible for both styles when you make your choice.
If you’re choosing an In-frame door you will need the internal measurements of the carcass, as the door will be slightly smaller than the cabinet.
A frameless door will sit on top of the carcass, meaning the external measurements of the cabinet are needed. This is one of the most vital parts of the Naked Doors process, as we make our doors bespoke to your measurements, meaning if they are not accurate, the doors will not fit perfectly.
As a company, creating products that are 100% bespoke is something that just came very naturally to us. After years of only being able to purchase kitchens that didn’t really fit your room perfectly, and always seemed like something was missing or not quite right, we decided at our sister company, Naked Kitchens, the only way we would be able to create dream kitchens was to work to the clients measurements completely, and make something that would fit their space perfectly. And this is an ethos that we have carried through into Naked Doors.
We understand that the cabinets you already have in place may not be standard sizes as you’ve had to fill a space that is very unique in sizing, and to ensure that you can get the dream kitchen you’ve always wanted, we manufacture doors and drawer fronts that will fit your cabinets exactly. By offering this service, budget doesn’t ever have to compromise style. We can create a designer kitchen for you without a large amount of the cost if you keep existing cabinet carcasses or install new, lower cost carcasses, and purchase our doors and drawer fronts.
Living in today’s society, it is clear that people want to be unique. Whether that’s the way they dress, the items they buy or the way they style their home.
With Naked Doors that’s one thing you can be. Entirely Unique. Our Doors are made to order and you can choose from many of our door options to be painted in any colour scheme you want. Whether it is a Beautiful Bold Blue, a Timeless Grey or an Earthy Olive Green, Naked Doors can create whatever image you have in mind for your kitchen.
Colour is something that is re-emerging in Kitchens. Everything was once a shade of White, then there was the emergence of Grey with its soft and mellow tones, and now there is a revival of colour in the Kitchen. Think Kingfisher Blues, Forest Greens, Bruised Plums and Blushing Pinks, colour is making a massive comeback in the Kitchen and everyone is loving it!
Our recent project with Kia Designs demonstrates how you can inject beautiful deep purples and elegant blues into the kitchen to create a sophisticated and relaxing vibe, creating a kitchen that is entirely bespoke to the customer.
