How a Sample Door Can Make Your Life Easier

We’ve all been there. We order something online and when it arrives, it looks nothing like we’d imagined. We want you to be happy with your cabinets when ordering from us. To help ensure your complete satisfaction we’re giving you a rundown on the importance of ordering a sample door beforehand

So why is a sample door important?

Kitchen remodeling is already an expensive, messy, and stressful job as it is. The last thing you want to deal with is kitchen cabinet doors that don’t match the expectations you got from the pictures. 

Screen Colors


Having everything online and displayed on a website is a great way to start with remodeling. This is one of the advantages of this era of technological advances, with our options being practically unlimited.. From 3D designs to various ranges of colors, materials, searching for cabinets online helps us a lot with our ideas and visions. 
But, keep in mind that screens only have three colors (red, green, and blue) to display images. For this reason, it’s unlikely that those images will match the actual color. Since we want our customers to be happy with their cabinets for many years to come, we highly suggest ordering a sample door to avoid any possible misunderstandings

Style, hardware, color & finish


Cabinets are central to setting the tone for your home, and it’s very important for you to know what to expect. There are a lot of factors to consider, such as: How will that cabinet actually look in my kitchen? Will the cabinet color go well with the rest of the room? And so on. It’s because of these challenges that a sample door is important.


You spend hours or even days going through all the different styles, hardware choices, finishes, colors, and more. But you may never feel confident in making a final decision. There are a lot of cabinet door styles that are available. Being able to find kitchen door samples allows you to figure out which styles work, and which don’t. Kitchen door samples are also very helpful when picking out drawer pulls and doorknobs. You can compare your samples with the hardware you picked out and see first hand what looks best.

Three things to keep in mind


→ Better representation of the wood variations → Better representation of the color variations → Better representation of the actual style of cabinets 

In sum, you don’t want to be stuck with cabinets that don’t compliment your kitchen. To avoid wasting your time and money and hassle, order door samples before you buy.

Nelson Cabinetry offers you a sample door for only $19.99 with an additional $1 for insurance. Take one for a test drive so you can get a sense of how the color and style fits with your kitchen and the rest of your home. You’ll be glad you did.
