If there was one design trend that defined the past decade, it was the all-white kitchen. The look is timeless, cohesive, and clean, and has a miraculous way of making even the tiniest kitchen look airy and spacious. But the new decade brings with new trends, and designers say there’s a new color in the kitchen that you should try: black.

Black can be used in transitional kitchens, too. One of the easiest ways to incorporate black cabinets is to pair them with white. Stonington Cabinetry & Designs featured a black kitchen island among the white perimeter cabinetry in this transitional style design.

At Kountry Kraft we offer many finishes, and one popular option is our paint with Glazed Cabinets. We offer a variety of colors and even offer paint with brushed glaze finishes. Choosing a paint with glaze finish will give your cabinetry the perfect touch of color and really bring out the craftsmanship of the piece.

Paint with Glaze Finish


A glaze finish is applied to cabinetry as one of the last steps in the finishing process. We apply the glaze with a cloth or brush, and once it is applied, it is then wiped off to achieve the desired color. Below are the standard colors that we offer. We will custom match any paint that is requested by the client or designer. The paint with glaze finishes tend to look best on raised panel doors, but the process can be done on any door style you choose. The kitchen above was designed by Hanford Cabinet and Woodworking.
