Kitchen Remodeling Tampa
Every day we help Tampa homeowners pick out their new kitchen cabinets and countertops. As we guide them through this process, we take great satisfaction in knowing that they are going to love the results of their kitchen remodeling Tampa project. Kitchens are a unique room in the house. It is here that family members gather for meals and conversation. At Kitchen Creations we have seen how a newly remodeled kitchen can bring families closer together and make their daily lives more enjoyable. We want you to experience this as well.
Let Us Help You Plan
When kitchen remodels go awry, the problems are often a result of insufficient planning. Before purchasing any materials – and certainly before tearing out any existing kitchen features – you will want to develop a comprehensive remodeling plan. This involves more than taking measurements and choosing a color scheme. As our design professionals in Tampa routinely explain, the first matter of business is to step back and consider the big picture. Do you expect to cook for one or two people, or large groups? Will you dine in the kitchen? What non-meal related activities will you conduct in the kitchen? A well-planned kitchen blends form and function, reflecting the homeowner’s actual purposes for the space.
Kitchen Cabinet Layouts
Tampa homes contain a wide variety of kitchen layouts, and it often makes financial sense to keep the existing floor plan. This reduces the costs associated with tearing out floors, rerouting plumbing and electrical circuits, and so forth. Nevertheless, most budgets will allow for some layout modifications, and if an existing layout is awkward or inefficient, remodeling is the chance to fix this. We help owners of smaller homes develop compact, space-saving layouts. Larger rooms allow for additional styles such as L-shaped and U-shaped kitchens. Including an island provides even more countertop and storage capacity.
Molding and Trim
At Kitchen Creations in Tampa we carry cabinet lines that offer decorative accents such as molding and trim. For a relatively modest investment, you can enhance the look of cabinet exteriors, adding a touch of craftsmanship to the overall appearance of your kitchen. Crown molding in particular is an extremely popular option. Running the entire length of your cabinets along the upper edge of the face frames, crown molding offers a distinctive flair. Our cabinet installers are experts at working with crown molding, edge molding, and any other trim feature you may choose to include.
Selecting the Right Finish
Our customers depend on our knowledge of cabinet woods and finishes. When you visit one of our Tampa showroom locations, be prepared to learn everything you want to know about birch, alder, oak, hickory, maple, cherry, and every other type of cabinet wood material. We will explain grain patterns and how certain finishes and treatments can enhance their appearance. You can learn about wood density, and how wood color can change with age. Our goal is to assist you every step of the way as you choose the finish that is perfect for you.
Tampa Kitchen Cabinets
Cabinets have the ability to add or detract from the overall appearance of a kitchen. When they look new, Tampa kitchen cabinets give the entire kitchen an updated feel. When they look worn, they make the rest of the kitchen seem outdated as well. Cabinets also serve the functional purpose of storing dishes and food items so they can be accessed conveniently. When you are ready for beautiful and efficient new cabinets, you can turn to Kitchen Creations in Tampa.
Choose Your Décor
The style of a kitchen often mirrors the personality of the owner, and this is especially true if the owner is an avid cook. It is impossible to spend numerous hours in the kitchen without wanting to make changes to the décor to reflect personal tastes. So when it is time to remodel your cabinets, this is your chance to make the kitchen exactly how you want it. We can help you transform your cooking area into a sleek modern kitchen or a cozy farmhouse eatery. Your kitchen can be luxurious, it can be quaint, or it can exhibit the feel of true southern hospitality. The choice is up to you.
You may think you know about the wood types used to make kitchen cabinets, but we encourage you to come into one of our Tampa showrooms to learn more. Until you run your hand across finished cherry wood, and experience how it seems warm to the touch, you will not be able to make a truly informed decision. You can find out for yourself how it feels to open and close a solid oak cabinet door. You will see how maple can brighten up an entire kitchen, and how stained birch is nearly indistinguishable from much more expensive wood types. Our knowledgeable staff is standing by to help you explore the many wood types we have available.
Cabinet Door Styles
The style of your cabinet doors can make a big difference in the look of your kitchen. For example, did you know that glass panel doors will make a small kitchen appear much larger than it is? When looking at the front of glass panel cabinets, a person will unknowingly gaze through the glass to the back panel of the cabinet’s interior. This can give a narrow kitchen the appearance of having a full wall-to-wall width, something not possible with solid doors. We offer a large selection of cabinet door styles, including raised panel, flat panel, slab, decorative, and more.
If you have plenty of space in your existing kitchen cabinets to store everything you would like, consider yourself extremely fortunate. Most Tampa homeowners do not, and that is one reason so many of them come to see us at Kitchen Creations. When we help you design new cabinets, we find ways to utilize all available space. Storage can be created above the refrigerator, under the sink, and inside corner cabinet units. Our design specialists know how to make creative use of spaces other designers overlook.
