Kitchen Cabinet Ideas

High-Gloss Cabinets

Two-Tone Cabinets

Two toned cabinets provide the contrasting look a room desires. When a kitchen has a multi-color backsplash, two-toned cabinets can help blend the colors together. Two toned cabinets are also used to add warmth or coolness to a space,

Mesh Inserts

Mesh inserts give a slight peek at what’s inside the cabinet without putting the contents on full display. Mesh inserts work well in both traditional and contemporary designs, bringing a sense of old-world charm.

Mirrored Cabinets

The industrial appeal of steel doesn’t have to stop at stainless-steel appliances, mirrored cabinet doors can extend the industrial style feel of the space. Incorporating mirrors into cabinetry can make the room feel more casual and welcoming.

Kountry Kraft was chosen to educate television personality, Ryan Serhant, in the art of cabinetmaking for his new television show, Sell it Like Serhant. The Bravo TV team discovered Kountry Kraft on Instagram and were instantly impressed by their cabinetry work. In the episode aired on Wednesday, April 25, Ryan Serhant was on a mission to teach Frank, the struggling salesman, about how custom cabinetry is made. With only a week left before Frank would lose his job, Serhant went directly to the expert himself, Elvin Hurst Jr., President of Kountry Kraft.

Elvin Hurst, Jr. is the son of the founders, Elvin Hurst, Sr. and Helen Hurst, whom purchased the company with his sister, Dee Hurst-Funk in February 2003. Elvin and Dee have been immersed in the family business since they were born. Growing up alongside their hardworking parents gave them a strong desire to guide Kountry Kraft into the future.

Elvin taught Ryan and Frank the artistry and talent required to making quality cabinetry; beginning with cutting down the tree all the way to crafting the cabinet door. Elvin chose to teach Ryan and Frank how to create a distressed cabinet – or as Ryan Serhant would call it; “like a worn pair of jeans”. Elvin guided the two men through the steps of creating a distressed cabinet. As Elvin explained the cabinetmaking process, Ryan made sure Frank was taking notes.

Step 1: Dubbing using a sander

Step 2: Rasping using a file

Step 3: Dings and dents using a chain

Step 4: Worn holes using a scaler

“Let’s make some cabinets!” Ryan shouted when it was his turn to create the “worn cabinet look”. Ryan and Frank were stunned when they saw their finished product. Ryan Serhant had such a great time that he stated, “if real estate doesn’t work out, I’m selling cabinets!” Frank could now see how the entire process was done by hand, and that became a unique selling point for him; telling the story. Every aspect of Kountry Kraft’s cabinetry is completely done by hand by the talented craftsmen.
