Michael Beidler of Trout Design Studio designed custom transitional cabinetry for a kitchen design in Washington, D.C. The transitional kitchen space is open to the family room, making the kitchen feel bigger than its proposed size. The cabinets are made of hard maple wood, crafted into an inset/no bead style. The cabinets were finished with a paint match to WM-100421 35°. Although this kitchen isn’t very large in size, the custom cabinets by Kountry Kraft bring storage and functionality into the space.

This transitional bathroom includes custom crafted transitional cabinets, also designed by Michael Beidler of Trout Design Studio. This bathroom is located in the same residence as the kitchen you see above. Beidler wanted to continue the transitional theme throughout the whole house, creating a cohesive and personalized style. The cabinets in this bathroom are made of hard maple crafted with an inset/no bead style. The finish on the cabinetry is a paint color match to JM-98525 35°.

Evalia Designs, LLC has incorporates Kountry Kraft Cabinetry into many of their designs. From the kitchen and beyond, our custom cabinetry can fit into any room or your home.
A quote from the Evalia Designs: “The client wanted a more open floor plan, her own personal office space that could be closed off when entertaining, two islands, and a Butler’s pantry. By removing the wall between the family room and existing kitchen we were able to create an open floor plan and help them achieve their dream kitchen design requests.”
A quote from Evalia Designs: “The client wanted a social kitchen, temperature controlled wine room, seating groups, fireplaces, game areas, a secret door to access the storage room and a full bath in their new basement space. By reworking the existing space, using built-in custom cabinetry, and unique finishes we were able to achieve their dream basement remodel.”
As many of you already know, Kountry Kraft attended KBIS 2017 in Orlando this past January. We had a fantastic time and would like to thank everyone who came out to support us. KBIS is a fantastic opportunity for Kountry Kraft to show off our commitment to impeccable quality in custom made cabinetry.

The last time Kountry Kraft attended KBIS was in 2009, when we featured a fireplace display, a butler’s pantry and horizontal grain kitchen cabinetry. So much has changed throughout those 8 years, but Kountry Kraft has continued to provide the finest products and excellent service.
One of our exclusive products featured in our booth was our metal fusion range hoods. These hoods replicate the look of metal when applied to wood.

When designing your kitchen, you always want a focal point to bring the overall look together. Custom range hoods can be that unique piece of your kitchen. Kountry Kraft not only creates custom cabinetry but also custom range hoods.
Custom range hoods can add a dramatic effect to a kitchen through color, style or shape. Having custom features in your kitchen bring personality and character to your home. When you incorporate a custom range hood into your kitchen, it can become the focal point of the room. The focal point of a room is the first thing people see when they walk in, and it typically brings the whole kitchen together. A focal point piece should be exciting and eye-catching, drawing in the attention of your visitors.
Range hoods are one of the main components of a kitchen, but that doesn’t mean it has to be an ordinary range hood. Range hoods are typically rectangular however, you can make your custom range hood any shape you’d like – triangular, circular or even cylinder shaped! Your custom range hood doesn’t necessarily need to stand out, you can also make it blend in with your cabinetry and barely noticeable in plain sight. You can even design your range hood to be a storage space so that you don’t lose any storage room from a range hood.
Custom Range Hoods
Through contrasting paint colors, this custom range hood became a natural focal point of the room – standing out in midst of the white cabinetry.
Put some personality into your kitchen! Give your kitchen a high-end treatment with a custom range hood by Kountry Kraft.

Founding of Integrated Kitchens
Founder, Amy C. Pasek, wanted to pursue her passion for kitchen design after earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from Whitman College and then graduating from Montgomery College with an Associate in Applied Science in Interior Design. Amy’s professors could clearly see her talent for kitchen design, as they requested for her assistance in mentoring design students following graduation. Amy has strong communication skills when it comes to collaborating with clients, architects and contractors which resonates well with her beautiful designs. Integrated Kitchens takes your needs and desires and integrate them into a beautiful, functioning kitchen. Integrated Kitchens fulfills all of the steps of designing a new kitchen; budgeting, design and communication throughout the construction process.

Each month, Kountry Kraft contributes a blog to profile one of our many accomplished cabinetry dealers that we have the pleasure of working with. This month, we chose to embrace Pinnacle Kitchens located in New Hampton, New Hampshire. Pinnacle Kitchens specializes in architecturally themed renovations, as well as new construction.
After studying mechanical drafting at Belmont High School, Stacy discovered her talent in hand-drawn perspective drafting. After graduating High School, she attended Phoenix Institute of Technology where she studied Architectural Drafting and Design. In 1984, Stacy mentored a seasoned kitchen designer in Laconia, New Hampshire and eventually began to work for herself just 5 years later in 1989. Through her studies and experiences, Stacy specializes in architecturally themed renovations, as well as new construction. When taking on a new project, Stacy will study the overall space and floor plan of a home and work the kitchen to flow into a beautifully designed, cohesive space.
Onto her partner, Jack, who has a natural ability for building. His hard work and determination is built from growing up on a farm in Gilmanton, New Hampshire. In his past, he’s worked as a carpenter leading up to project manager on countless projects. His most recent work includes incredible lake-front residential properties. Jack makes sure that all the Pinnacle Kitchens cabinetry projects are complete from start to finish.
The two ingenious talents joined together in 2003, and the match works perfectly!
