Tips for Choosing Kitchen Cabinets

Your kitchen cabinets are the most important investment you’ll make in your kitchen remodel. The focal point of your kitchen is the cabinets. Cabinets can take a lot of abuse, so make sure you pick a cabinet that is not only beautiful but also well-built.

Knowing the details of the construction and what to look out for in cabinet materials can help you choose the perfect kitchen cabinet for your Tampa house. When choosing cabinets for your Tampa custom-built kitchen, we recommend the following.


Construction – The best way to ensure that your cabinets last a long time is by choosing a quality cabinet. Look for cabinets with dovetailed drawers, and soft-close hinges.

Materials – Cabinets can be made of a variety of materials. Many cabinets are made of wood. You can choose the type of wood that you want to use for your stain or finish color. You can choose from maple, oak, or hickory as well as other wood types. Some homeowners choose to skip the wood and use melamine, stainless steel, or thermofoil instead. Your kitchen’s style and appearance will be affected by the material you choose. Make sure to research how light, water, and other elements affect the different materials. A skilled kitchen designer will be able to show you the differences and explain them.

Door Styles and Overlays – Your kitchen’s style is determined by the door styles you choose and the type of overlays that you select. There are many options available: a recessed panel, shaker panel, mullion, recessed panels, and a slab. You can choose whether your door will cover the entire cabinet or just a portion of it. Inset is a term that describes the flushness of cabinet doors with the cabinet frame.

Cabinet Finish – You have a wide range of colors and stain options. You should ensure that you have sufficient lighting as darker stains can make the kitchen feel smaller. A kitchen that has lighter cabinet finishes can appear larger.

Storage – Consider the items you use most often. Your storage should be organized to match your work areas. It is important that you have easy access to the items that you use most often. Discuss your storage options with your kitchen designer. You can reduce clutter and increase countertop space with the right interior cabinet storage.

Cabinet Hardware – Many designers will agree that your kitchen cabinet hardware is like the crown jewels in your cabinet. It is important so it is worth paying a little more to get the best kitchen cabinet hardware. Hardware will help to preserve your cabinets.

Trends – Pay attention to current kitchen trends. Don’t just follow a trend and pick a color that will look good in a few years. These trends have proven to be durable.

Ecofriendly – Search for a cabinet company using eco-friendly products. This will benefit your family’s health and the environment.
