When it comes to kitchens and baths, design means different things to different people. Historically, kitchens were often tucked away, isolated work areas. These days, the kitchen is the central “hub” of the home, melding seamlessly into the home. And baths are where form and function meet.
According to Krystin Strasser, kitchen and bath designer at CTW Abbey Carpet & Floor, today the CTW team is seeing larger kitchens with more functionality, expanded islands for dining and entertaining, smart appliances that can be controlled through phones, and designated spaces to fit larger appliances, such as air fryers and pressure cookers.
For finishes in both kitchens and baths, CTW’s clients are showing interest in warmer wood tones and textures. Oak cabinetry, flooring and trim is making a comeback in lighter finishes.
“Black, white and light neutral colors are still high on the list, but we are seeing more incorporation of wood tones and pops of colors such as greens and blues, as seen in nature,” Strasser says.
While CTW has traditionally been known for offering flooring and tile products and services, they also provide cabinet and countertop options for kitchen and bath builds and remodels.
For both kitchen and baths, CTW offers custom, semi-custom and stock cabinetry with full design and installation services. They also offer cabinet painting and refacing, and countertop options including quartz, granite, solid surface and laminate, as well as sinks and hardware to complete the look.
Strasser points out CTW also has cabinets to fit any style and budget — find several different wood species with a variety of stain and paint options.
“We’ve incorporated this new service into our business to serve a niche of customers who don’t mind their layout and their cabinets are in decent shape, but they just need a cosmetic refresh,” says Strasser. “We use a durable, cabinet- grade paint that looks and feels like it was painted at the factory. The result is is a much more budget-friendly option.”
CTW can replace doors and drawer fronts, add soft-close drawers, install moldings and do other minor reconfigurations for an updated look without the budget or time commitment of a complete kitchen or bath overhaul.
If you want to complete the look of an outdoor living space, CTW has a selection of composite wood cabinets made for outdoor living areas that are resistant to warping, heat, humidity and fading.
When customers visit the company’s brand-new kitchen and bath showroom, they will experience interactive displays showcasing the many options in cabinetry, countertops and finishes for use throughout the home.
“We have blended many textures and colors to mirror all of the trends that we are seeing in contemporary homes today,” Strasser says. “It is a perfect mix of aesthetics and functionality.”
