If you want to create a new kitchen and you’re feeling bold, look no further. Seattle-based Kerf Design provides a sleek and strong look by working with two simple materials, plywood and plastic laminate.
Integrating what Kerf considers three essentials components—functionality, method of construction, and unadorned presentation—these kitchens are as straightforward as they are beautiful.
Take this mid-century kitchen, for instance, that incorporates Kerf materials into an overall uniformity.
Structures and hardware are not only updated in look, but soundly and traditionally made—with extremely strong mortise and tenon joinery. This house is sure to get a great return.
In a land not necessarily known for its sleekness (though fabulous nature and skiing, to be sure), this residential kitchen in Utah is strong and functional—and was a DIY project. Yet working with a professional integrates Kerf structures best into the kitchen. Get help with your own cabinet installation here.
The plywood and orange pairing really warms up this Eichler kitchen.
Kerf retains its individuality in such old-school construction by leaving the joinery exposed for a unique finished look.
And don’t think that such a cool company limits their construction to the kitchen. Check out this bold bathroom above, and amazing bedroom library system below.
The combination of design, materials and cool aesthetic of Kerf might leave us wondering why we’d consider anything else.
