Here are my suggestions for chip distributions for NLHE cash games.
Feel free to comment / make suggestions.

The number of chips required is based on a 10 player game with a max buy-in of 100x BB.
The final chipset is rounded up to 100 chips using rebuy chips.

$0.05 / $0.10 blinds (Max buy-in: $10)
10x $0.05 (= $0.50) [=100 chips]
14x $0.25 (= $3.50) [=140 chips]
6x $1.00 (= $6.00) [=60 chips]

An alternative is to bet in units and get a set that supports 1/2 blinds. Something like some 1s, lots of 5s, then some 25s for rebuys and, if you need them, some 100s to make sure you never run out. Then just adjust your buy in and cash out accordingly. For example, playing .10/.20 you could give a player buying in for $20 10x1, 18x5, and 4x25 to make 200 units of betting, each worth .10 when buying or cashing out. That set can then be used for any stakes just by adjusting the buy in and cash out.

If you want to use units, like Martini suggested, you would need to construct your chipset as follows:

Buying guide:
x20 chipsx25 chipsx50 chipsx100 chips
$1.00
100
100
100
100
$5.00 (doubles as $0.05)
180
200
200
200
$25.00 (doubles as $0.25)
180
175
200
200
$100.00 (doubles as $1.00)
140
150
150
200
$500.00 (doubles as $5.00)
100

Total
600
700
750
800

Shouldn't be any different than your breakdown for a 1/2 game which is exactly how blinds and betting would work. When playing this way it is easiest to announce bets in terms of units, similar to a tourney. Playing .25/.50 and raising to seven chips would be raise to "seven" not "buck seventy five".

And the chips wouldn't double as anything. If you are playing .05/.10 then just have the 1 chip equate to .05 and make blinds 1 chip/2 chips.

That's an option too, but I prefer denominations which represent the monetary value.

I could deal with having the denominations represent cents instead of dollars (5 = $0.05 and 25 = $0.25),
but I would have a hard time with dividing them by 4 or 20 (5 = $1.25 or 5 = $0.25 and 25 = $6.75 or 25 = $1.25).

The whole joy in playing a cash game is knowing exactly how much I'm staking on my hand every time I make a bet. To me this would feel like playing a tournament with chips that have no real value associated with them, like getting 1000 chips for $15.

If you were to use betting in units, it'd be better to use non-denominated chips, assign a value to each color, and put up a poster depicting the values of each color like:

White = $0.25
Red = $1.00
Green = $5.00
etc.

The breakdowns above were really meant for denominated chipsets.

I'll play you in any game you name for any amount you can count.

When/if I buy a cash set I will definetelly go with the "units" idea.  Everything will be based on a 1/2 setup.  It would make a 10/20cent game a lot of fun.  You don't even need to think of it in units when you play.  You only need to convert it at buyin and cash out. 

I raise to $7.00 (actually 70 cents).  Oh yeah!?!  I am all in for $35!!!  (again really only $3.50).  It might even keep people from playing any two cards because it will feel like a bigger game.

It's morally wrong to let a sucker keep money.
