In a seamless design, it is sometimes difficult to design a kitchen focal point, unless it derives naturally from existing features. Many of our customers have used eye-catching elements for the focal point in their kitchen, but others chose a custom range hood or a custom cabinet design. With Kountry Kraft’s custom cabinetry options, we are able to provide our customers with the solutions they need to complete their kitchen design. Our cabinets beautifully frame the hearth of the home.
The below designs illustrate how some of our designers used range hoods and cabinetry to create their kitchen focal point.
Custom Kitchen Focal Point Designs
The focal point in this kitchen designed by Justin Sachs of Stonington Cabinetry & Designs is completed with a Thermador range hood and brick walls. Custom Alpine white beaded inset cabinets surround the range hood to really make the focal point pop.
All eyes glance right to the kitchen island in this design by Stonington Cabinetry & Designs. The perimeter cabinetry is Alpine white and the island cabinetry is wrought iron. The island was built to stand out, creating a naturally beautiful kitchen focal point. A truly wonderful space that is not only stunning, but functional as well.
This kitchen focal point features a Thermador hood insert with a double oven and a grey tile backsplash. The focal point is framed with a custom range hood and custom cabinetry finished in a Alpine 25° Paint Color. Justin Sachs of Stonington Cabinetry and Designs designed this kitchen.

American made cabinets by Kountry Kraft are for any room of your home. Our American made cabinets are durable as well as stylish, creating a long-lasting impression in your home.
Why Choose American Made Cabinets?
There are many reasons why you should choose American made cabinets, one being the family values they are crafted upon. Many American made cabinet manufacturers are a family operated business, having many company standards and traditions. Kountry Kraft is a family owned business with a three-generation legacy, founded in 1959 by Elvin Sr. and Helen Hurst on the Hurst family farm. The Hurst family established the traditions of hard work, dedication, honesty and clear communication. Another reason to choose made in USA cabinets is the quality. The skilled craftsmen of Kountry Kraft have over 1500 combined years of experience, which is indefinitely represented in our cabinets. Our quality construction cabinets withstand the test of time and create new family legacies in kitchens.

Our custom stain options create cabinets as special as you. Many of our customers have an old piece of furniture that inspires the design of their cabinetry as well as the color of their cabinetry. Our custom stain matching makes it possible to match the color of any piece of furniture you bring to us.
Painted vs. Stained Kitchen Cabinets
Our world of cabinet colors doesn’t stop at stain colors, we have hundreds of paint colors and custom paint colors for you to choose from as well. What is the difference between painted vs. stained cabinets? Staining your cabinets gives the natural wood a slight shade difference and painting your cabinets usually covers the entire natural color of the wood species. You can choose to have your wood grain show with a painted finish, but most paints cover the natural wood grains.

We all have that random pile of books in our kitchen, and constantly looking at kitchen bookshelf ideas for different ways to organize them. Kountry Kraft has crafted many different types of bookshelves for kitchens, whether they are open shelves or behind frosted doors; we’ve seen them all! A kitchen bookshelf can add the perfect hint of color that your kitchen needs, no need to spend money on expensive decorations when you can use your collection of cookbooks you have laying around your house.
Kitchen Bookshelf Ideas
Bookshelves are very versatile when it comes to incorporating them into your kitchen cabinetry. Designing open shelves at the end of your island is a perfect way to take advantage of unused, awkward space. Open shelving adds character to a kitchen because not only does it provide a bookshelf area, but also an area to show off knick-knacks or collectables. The shelving can also be incorporated into the cabinetry area of your kitchen. If you have collectables or important family cookbooks that you don’t want to be accessible to children, putting them at a higher point may be the choice for you!
There is a variety of kitchen bookshelf ideas to incorporate into your kitchen. Even if you don’t have a random pile of books, a kitchen bookshelf can hold anything! Some people are inspired by the way people display their kitchen items, and a kitchen bookshelf is such a unique and tidy way to do so. Bookshelves can also be accompanied by baskets or storage bins. A plain white kitchen is sometimes too “simple” and a bookshelf is the perfect way to add more personality to your space. View the below kitchen bookshelf ideas we have created for our customers.

A true must have of a 1920’s kitchen was the hoosier cabinet. The idea built behind this popular cabinet was that a worker is only as efficient as her workplace. This cabinet was so much more than just a storage cabinet, it included storage, appliances and much more!
What Does “Hoosier” Mean?
The word Hoosier has been tied to the state of Indiana for over 150 years. There are several theories about its origin, one of them involves people yelling “who’s there?” across the river and the other is of a man who lost his ear in a bar fight and someone unfortunately picked it up and asked, “whos ear?” Both circumstances sound similar to the term “Hoosier”.
So, what does the term have to do with the Hoosier cabinet? The cabinet got its name because most of them were made in Indiana. The first Hoosier cabinets appeared in 1898, created by a furniture company called Sellers, in New Castle, Indiana. Popularity of the cabinet grew up until the late 1940’s when the records for the cabinets became scarce.
What Is in a Hoosier Cabinet?
You may be thinking that this was just an average cupboard, but back in the 1920’s, this was much more. This cabinet had storage for staples like flour, sugar and spices as well as workable parts like flour sifters, meat grinders, spice carousels, grocery list wheel, nutritional charts and cookbook holders. The Hoosier cabinet was made to speed up meal delivery by having everything you need in one place.

This modern Hoosier cabinet was designed by PKsurroundings. The modern storage cabinet includes shelves for organizing jars, spices and staple products. There is also a built-in prep sink that includes a garbage disposal. Outlets are incorporated on the walls for small appliances like a blender or electric mixer. The cabinet area provides a sense of separation from the rest of the kitchen, allowing multiple chefs to be cooking and prepping at the same time! Even though the storage space is beautiful to look at, it is all hidden behind custom sliding cabinet doors by Kountry Kraft.
