A tambour door is one that rolls up. This is an ideal solution for a cupboard with items which are frequently used during cooking or baking as content is accessible whilst the door is up – without a door being in the way. Once the tambour door is down, all is hidden and out of sight.
A tambour door works well as well as a door for a wall-hung unit that comes right down on to the worktop – i.e. toaster or kettle on the worktop are quickly hidden behind the roll-up door for a clean-look kitchen counter.
