What many people may not put much thought into during their Tampa kitchen remodel is the cabinet doors. You may have decided to get all new cabinets but the style of the doors can make a significant impact on the kitchen’s overall style. Here in Tampa, Florida, Renovate Tampa Bay specializes in kitchen remodels and knows the styles and flairs of kitchen cabinets, and can help them spark new life into your new kitchen.


Kitchen Styles

One important key to your kitchen remodel is what overall style you are going to select for your new kitchen. Even if you’re not redoing the entire room, having an arching theme throughout the space will help bring all the elements together. Traditional kitchens are the down to earth, homey feels of country kitchens. These kitchens usually have more of a flair in their cabinet designs, and are typically painted white or left in their hardwood design for a more rustic feel. Modern kitchens have cleaner edges and lines, and less flash in their door designs, keeping the theme more aligned and uniform. These cabinets can be grey or white as well, but more modern designs are going with more bold colors such as greens, blues and reds for a striking look. The transitional kitchen is a mix between the two looks; the cabinets may have the sleekness of modern design but then have the rustic hardware and colors of a country kitchen.    


Cabinet Doors

Recessed panel door styles, often referred to as shaker, are quickly gaining traction as one of the popular cabinet styles. Many homeowners are seeking this style of cabinet for its clean lines, smooth look, and sharp squared edges. The shaker cabinets are also available in a wide variety of wood species, stain colors and painted finishes, all designed to bring in the look and feel of your dream kitchen. The most basic shaker style is a five piece door with recessed center panel and no additional edge detailing. The cabinetry styles for shaker doors include inset, standard, and full, all offering a different level of visible reveal. Shaker cabinets go with any style in your kitchen, whether it’s traditional or modern, or even transitional. 


Most shakers have door styles in Hancock, Bishop and Prairie. The Hancock is a more relaxed design style, with more of the shaker design elements more softened. Hancock’s main color of choice is the Glacier paint, which adds a bright air of refinement to any kitchen or room of your house. If you are leaning more towards a transitional style kitchen, the Bishop door style may be right for you. This shaker door is a more streamlined profile with simple paneled doors and crisp, clean lines. Bishop is most popular with the Dove paint, a light, soft grey that provides elegance without being too dark. Simple and neutral is the main theme of most Tampa kitchen remodels happening this year, which the Bishop cabinets in Dove do just that. Prairie is gaining speed as the most popular shaker style door with its recessed panels, wide door frames and sharp, squared edges and lines. Prairie’s most popular finish is Drift, a warm, brown stain that highlights the door’s natural features while keeping with current trends in kitchen upgrades.  


Paints & Stains

One of the biggest contributors to your kitchen cabinet design is what the color will be. Many people decide to keep the rich, deep grain found already and add a nice stain that only amplifies the boldness. Others will use a traditional white or other off-white shade to keep the kitchen bright and lively. Whatever your style, knowing what colors and stains you ultimately want may make picking the doors that much easier. Most cabinets will have their own variety of colors to choose from, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick with that shade either. Glacier white and grey are trending colors right now for cabinets, but if it doesn’t suit your kitchen and your needs, there are endless color possibilities readily available for you to bring the kitchen together.
