I'm desperately searching for "board and batten" style kitchen cabinetry like that featured on the reality TV show "Starting Over". The following link is specifically what it looks loke:

I've tried countless kitchen designers, manufacturer catalogs and retail stores but haven't been able to find anything close to this style. Can anybody tell me where I might be able to locate it or a similar style? Or whether there is a name other than "board and batten" that might be used to try and describe it?

Thanks so much for all your help!

I also did some searches for you, and came up with:

Young Furniture has beaded doors like your photo (but a small width), but no battens, perhaps they can be added after installation.

Kemper also has a style called Crosscreek, again, no battens, but the beadboard is random width, very attractive.

Have you tried emailing the show's website to ask?

If this is a DIY, perhaps you can order all your shells and just have the doors custom-made?

If you are willing to invest the time and money, it would be worth your while to have a designer draw up the plans and specs so you can get bids for custom work.

Happy renovating!
