Handcrafted, warm, and tactile, Henrybuilt kitchen systems offer a basic framework that can be used to create any aesthetic. The cabinets include a broad range of materials and options such as American black walnut, rift-cut white oak, teak, bamboo, wedge, reclaimed Douglas Fir, and high-pressure laminates.

In addition to the cabinet components, the one-stop shop offers everything you need to complete the look, including countertops, backsplash material, lighting, and shelving. Details like reclaimed wood, optional leather pulls, and a variety of textures make it easier for homeowners to create a kitchen that has the appearance of custom cabinetry.

Although the company has only two showrooms, in Seattle and New York, it is able to walk customers through the design process no matter where they live. You just need an installer to help with the final build out.

Henrybuilt recently introduced a new line of drawer accessories to amp up the functionality of their cabinets. The system includes a solid wood cutting board, two knife-storage options, flatware storage, large utensil storage, spice storage, as well as a reconfigurable divider system made of Paperstone (a paper-based surface material) and a solid-surface acrylic that is held together magnetically.

Ikea first introduced its Akurum kitchen line in 1995, and it became a huge hit, selling more than 7.7 million cabinets over 20 years.

The company is transitioning to a new line of cabinets in February 2015 called Sektion that retains all the poplar features of the original Akurum line—such as the 25-year warranty, colors and finishes, ease of online planning and pricing—and adds in some new features. The new Sektion line will offer many of the same styles and finishes as the Akurum but will be more modular, to ease planning and simplify pricing.

Although all the details aren't yet available, Ikea representatives say the cabinets will make better use of interior space and will feature soft-close drawers and drawers. In addition, Sektion (pictured here) will feature a new system for integrated lighting. For do-it-yourselfers, a new wall-mounted rail system will also make installation simpler.
