When fitting out a kitchen the choice of cabinet fronts determines the look of the entire space. This is why it is important to choose based on personal taste, because they are what we see in the kitchen day after day. Choices must consider technical aspects, tied to easy maintenance and cleaning, resistance and duration over time, in particular when the cabinet fronts are near a dishwasher, sink or oven which generate heat and humidity.

Door Types

Aluminium Internal Frame Door and Applied Panels. The aluminium frame is invisible from the front and serves to support exposed panels that resemble slab doors. Finishes include wood, lacquered glass, ceramic, Fenix NTM® and NTA®, HPL…. The durable, robust and lightweight aluminium structure is resistant to all forms of corrosion and 100% recyclable.

Slab Door. The simplest, smoothest, most common and most minimalist cabinet door there is.

Chamfered Door. The top or side handle edge of the door features a 30° chamfer. This why, here at Doimo Cucine, we call it a “30° chamfer door”. There is also a version with an additional 45° cut toward the inner face where the door meets the side of the cabinetry. By applying the same cut to the cabinet frame it is possible to create the effect of a single block with a groove handle that appears to continue on the side panels.

Door with Profile. At Doimo Cucine we call it an “L” profile door for the form of the metal profile applied to the top edge of a slab door to make for easy opening, as part of a groove or flat groove system.

Shaped Door. What appears to be an original and chameleonic groove handle is, instead, a door with a classical groove handle and chamfered edge.

Integrated Handle Door. This door features a handle made from an extruded profile. It is integrated into the top edge of the door and fitted with end caps. At Doimo Cucine we call it a “Rail handle door”.

Raised edge Door. An elegant door with the most subtle frame marking the edge.

Framed Door. Characterised by a frame around the edge of a centre panel, it is prefect for traditional kitchens but also knows how to take on a contemporary look when treated with style.

Metal Framed Glass Door. The frame features a polished stainless steel or black metal finish, in some cases pronounced, in others almost invisible, coupled with transparent, acid etched, wired or decorated glass. It is a unique door, suited only to particular situations and dimensions, meaning it always used in combination with at least one other door type.


Cabinet fronts are available in a vast range of dimensions: from 15 to 120 cm in width, and from 24 cm for low base cabinets to 216 cm for one-piece tall cabinets. Panel thicknesses range from an average of 2 cm to 2.3 cm, as well as other more technical solutions with 1.4 cm thick panels.

Door Materials

Lacquered. A very popular choice because it allows for an almost infinite range of colours, with gloss, matt, metallic and metal-effect finishes. Easy to clean and very resistant.
Tecnolam/Synchroface. Pressed wood fibre board, finished with a very thin synthetic resin that simulates different finishes. The most economical choice. Synchroface represents an evolution with even more realistic textures.
Stratificato HPL. A synthetic product made from various layers of fibrous material, the outermost simulating wood or stone or in a vast range of colours.
Wood. Wood veneer finishes always bring a timeless warmth to the kitchen, in a very broad range of finishes, matt, lacquered or painted.
Fenix NTM®. This elegant material is soft to the touch and highly practical: anti-fingerprint, resistant to water, abrasion, rubbing and solvents. Metallic finishes are offered in Fenix NTA®.
Glass. Glass doors are mounted on a frame. Tempered to ensure safety in the event they crack, they are easy to clean and available in transparent glossy, matt or decorated finishes.
Stainless Steel. Extremely hygienic, perfectly resistant to staining, more prone to scratching. Doimo Cucine also offers a vintage version with an aged look, and mirror and etched mirror finish.
Peltrox®. All the advantages of stainless steel coupled with the warmth and aesthetic of pewter, which remain stable over time, at a very advantageous price.
XGloss and XMatt. Made from PET, a PVC free plastic material with zero emissions into the environment, made resistant by nanotechnologies. More than green, they are also hygienic and economical.
Ceramic. A 100% ecological material made from natural raw materials (clays and highly selected and refined minerals), baked at such high temperatures they become inseparable and extremely resistant.
MDi. Its name stands for “Mineral Design Innovation”. It is ecological, resistant and available in large format and thin sheets. Its surface is soft to the touch.
