Widening a cabinet

We are remodeling the kitchen and we want to relocate the built-in wall oven to a new location - and at the same time, get a new wall oven 30" instead of the current 24". We want to retain the same cabinet finish and the trimmings we have in the current kitchen, including the cabinet doors which are, well, for the lack of the right word design-groove-routed. There is one door that needs to be "retrofitted" to be expanded from the 24" to 30" width. (The built-in wall oven cabinet will be "re-barred" with new wood and supports to reflect the expansion) But, how does one expand the door by six inches? Any ideas to make it look presentable? Adding a three-inch wood on each side of the door opening to reflect the six-inch expansion?

You can make the cabinet face frame yourself out of the same wood as the cabinet veneer and stain it to match. As for the door, I would go to a local cabinet shop and ask them if they can match it.
