Crafting A Kitchen Legacy

Crafting A Kitchen Legacy

Three generations of Crafts have put the “craft” in Craft’s Custom Kitchens since the Rubyville, Ohio, business opened its doors in 1945.

Located in its original storefront along St. Rt. 139, the business has continued to thrive and grow in the nearly 70 years since Don Craft transitioned from selling other small handcrafted items to cabinets.

Don’s son Harold Craft, now 75, grew up working at the family business, building and installing cabinets and spent his adult life working side-by-side with his father. He took over the business’s ownership and operations in the mid 1970s. ...more

It's amazing how much discussion four columns can generate. Kevin Craft, the designer of Dan and Jennifer Wright's South Shore home said a lot of time was spent discussing how to design around the pillars.

But a beautiful solution was found.

"The kitchen is a large open area, but we did not have much wall space to work with," said Craft, who manages Craft's Custom Kitchens in Portsmouth, Ohio. "Because of this, I designed two islands plus a large peninsula."

With that problem solved,
a new obstacle arose.

"The greatest challenge was deciding how the peninsula and one island would 'interact' with these columns," said Craft, "In the end, we decided to stop the peninsula countertop just short of one column. The eating island is shaped so that it fits in between the other columns and still allows walking space between the cabinets and the columns."

The result is an elegantly arranged kitchen with mocha-on-cherry cabinets with full-overlay door styles from Mouser Custom Cabinetry.

With all challenges met, Craft said the Wrights now have the much-needed counter space and open eating areas they initially desired in their kitchen remodel.
