About Us Coastal Kitchens & Baths History
The owners of Coastal Kitchens & Baths are real estate developers and have worked in the building construction industry for over 30 years. They have always struggled with how their clients had such limited options when it came to actually viewing “model” kitchen displays in various lumber yard “showrooms”. These displays were usually outdated, extremely small vignettes that didn’t provide the client with a realistic sampling of how their “new” kitchen would look & feel. The owners had a vision of a better way to display their cabinetry and a desire to provide the client with a truly professional experience, and Coastal Kitchens & Baths was created with this vision in mind.
The showroom at Coastal Kitchens & Baths has been recognized as one of the most creative and innovative showrooms along the entire mid-Atlantic. The showroom depicts larger kitchen areas that give a client a “real life” experience. The mixture of product lines provides clients with a hands-on experience when comparing various cabinet lines and countertop materials, and greatly assists clients in making value decisions on their kitchen project. The kitchen design and selection process is truly one of the most important aspects of any new home construction or remodeling project and we are confident that the showroom experience at Coastal Kitchens & Baths, along with the expert guidance from one of our truly talented and experienced designers, will exceed the client’s expectations. Our showroom has become an extension of the builder/contractor as it reinforces the client’s confidence that they are working with true professionals throughout their construction project.
