Last month our team in Des Moines wrapped up some amazing projects that were featured in the 2021 Home Show Expo. Hosted annually by the Home Builders Association of Greater Des Moines, the expo is a great opportunity to tour custom-built homes and see the latest trends in home design from local builders. This year’s expo was set in Iowa’s first ‘Agrihood community’ Middlebrook Farm and three of the six homes featured CKF products. Today we’ll go in-depth on each of these homes and share the details of each space below.


Zenith Design & Build:

The modern, minimalist kitchen is becoming increasingly popular and we can see why. The homeowner worked with Zenith Design and Build and wanted slim, Shaker-style painted cabinets with a mix of maple open-shelving woven in to the design. We love the earth tones and clean lines. The perimeter and island of this kitchen feature CKF 360 Signature cabinets. To enhance the organic feel, they finished off this kitchen look with our Private Studio Collection countertops and full height backsplash. 

Room Details:

  • Kitchen – CKF 360 Signature, ‘Summit’ and ‘Liberty’ door styles, ‘Mist’ paint on ‘Maple’ perimeter, ‘Natural’ stain on ‘Maple’ open shelving and island, Private Studio Collection countertop and full height splash in ‘Desert Silver Suede’
  • Bar – CKF 360 Signature, ‘Summit’ door style, ‘Accessible Beige’ custom paint on ‘Maple’


Sage Homes:

This beautiful space from Sage Homes was voted on by the Des Moines HBA and won the titles of ‘Best Kitchen’ and ‘Best in Show’. Our CKF 360 Cabinetry makes a big statement throughout this home, but especially in the kitchen with the 10 ft. stacked cabinets making the space feel tall and spacious.

Room Details:

  • Kitchen – CKF 360 Signature, ‘Mission’ door style, ‘Sand’ stain on ‘White Oak’ 10ft stacked cabinets and island, ‘Linen’ paint on ‘Maple’ perimeter
  • Master Bath/Hall Bath – CKF 360 Signature, ‘Summit’ door style, ‘Sand’ stain on ‘White Oak’
  • Bar/Basement Bath – CKF 360 Origins, ‘Windsor’ door style, ‘Frontier’ Stain on ‘Birch’
  • Laundry/Pantry – CKF 360 Classic, ‘Savannah’ door style, ‘Ivory’ paint on ‘Maple’


Jerry’s Homes:

This house built by Jerry’s Homes highlights the wide range of CKF 360 cabinetry within each of their uniquely designed spaces. Warm neutral tones and natural finishes make you feel right at home when you walk through the door. The kitchen perimeter features cabinetry in an ‘Oyster’ paint color, which ties in nicely with the ‘Driftwood’ stain on the island, making us fall in love with this space even more. We can see why this home earned the ‘People’s Choice’ designation!

Room Details:

  • Kitchen – CKF 360 Signature, ‘Cascade’ door style, ‘Oyster’ paint on ‘Maple’ perimeter, ‘Driftwood’ stain on ‘White Oak’ island
  • Pantry/Lockers/Office Built-Ins – CKF 360 Signature, ‘Cascade’ door style, ‘Pewter’ paint on ‘Maple’
  • Fireplace Built-Ins/Master Bath/Powder Baths/Bar – CKF 360 Signature, ‘Cascade’ door style, ‘Driftwood’ Stain on ‘White Oak’
