What is a Kerf

Kerf is the name of a cabinetry design company based in Washington known for its contemporary contributions to cabinet construction. Kerf designs their cabinetry with a distinctive style with a slightly unpolished look, with exposed lap joints, plastic laminates and plywood. Kerf's styles are also known for their modular and utilitarian cubby-esque spaces throughout their cabinets. Their cabinets combine the best worlds of contemporary industrialism and utility. Today, Kerf still makes original cabinetry designs, but their style is copied by manufacturers across the world. Even though the materials are typically inexpensive in Kerf cabinetry, other manufacturers often have a hard time recreating the essence of these uniquely designed cabinets.
