Removing a bevel from a caninet door

So I have some unfinished cabinets in my home. I am having the most difficult time finding a match as I believe they are a the discontinued Continental Cabinets that were sold by Lowes. Well today I found a similar match. However, on the cabinet doors and drawer facings there is an added bevel sticking out about 1/8". How could i remove that bevel so I can have this match what I have now?

The only way I would consider would be to take the doors to a cabinet shop with a wide belt sander and have them remove 1/8 inch from the front of the doors. Any other approach I can think of will likely mess them up.

Will removing 1/8 inch leave the doors thinner than the other doors? If so, I think that would look worse than the extra lip.

One other option would be to have the door edges re-shaped to match the old profile. But that will leave the doors a little smaller in height and width. Can't tell from pics if that would be a problem.

I don't think you would be able to match it. I think it would be easier to get doors and drawer fronts made at a cabinet shop to match. Buy the cabinets and than have doors made.
If you tried to router edge it would take to much wood off to match.

The cheapest thing would be to stain/finish the new doors to match the old. While most of us here would notice the difference you'd be surprised at how many folks won't.

Doors and Drawer Fronts

Replace all the doors and drawer fronts so everything matches. Then you will have the challenge of matching the old and new finish.

Might be best to replace all the cabinets or refinish what you have.

Are you wanting to add additional cabinets or do you want to replace some of your old cabinets?

The cabinets here are not quite right. It would be too expensive for me to replace them all. Ill go ahead and list the issues. I moved here and didnt see these issues, trying to move too quick. Now im trying to fix.

None of the corners have anything so there is empty and unused space. For example where the stove is, there should be a lazy susan or equivalent in that space. All I have is a piece of filler panel that the previous owner rigged to intersect the next cabinet. This leaves me with a drawer I cant fully open. I believe when they tried to remodel this kitchen they didnt seat the stove properly and so everything else didnt line up.

Let me also pose this question. The top and bottom cabinets should align at the fridge cut out, correct? In the same sense, does the island/peninsula/bar end at the same spot so the whole thing is a nice wide U shape?
