Edge banding is used on many flat panel slab doors to conceal the core material of the door. Matching edge banding is traditionally used to provide a cohesive look between the material on the face and the edges. A recent trend in cabinetry uses a unique or contrasting edge band to provide a distinct difference between panel and edge materials. This is especially popular with high gloss looks and with silver or contrasting colored edge banding applied. With custom cabinetry the options for customization are endless.
