There is no one answer to how you stay in the home design business for 80 years. Quality, exceptional design and competitive prices are all clearly part of the equation, but there also has to be something more, something that makes you different. For Lakeville Kitchen & Bath that’s been relationships.
In 1935, Jack Morris and Lou Sirlin began manufacturing kitchen and bath cabinets, selling them out of a small storefront location in Floral Park. The company would later move to Lindenhurst where it’s been headquartered ever since and shift from manufacturing to supplying cabinets to the building trades. Today, Richard Sirlin represents the third generation of the company his great uncles began and understands that the more things change the more they stay the same.
“The most challenging part of our job is to help a client determine the right look to their kitchen and assist with the process of selecting a cabinet style and finish,” Sirlin said. “A kitchen renovation is a major project and disrupts the lifestyle of a family until its full completion. Lakeville is your partner to the successful conclusion of the project.”
With styles, colors and materials constantly changing and an overwhelming number of combination options, Lakeville, which is a leading supplier of cabinet companies that include Medallion, Crystal, Plain & Fancy, UltraCraft and Wolf, stays current on market changes, displaying the latest and most up to date cabinet styles, finishes and selections in their two designer showcase showrooms.
On Oct. 1, Sirlin and Lakeville Kitchen & Bath will display some of the latest styles when they debut 10 new kitchen showrooms at their 80th celebration. Hundreds of designers, contractors, builders and customers will be in attendance, a testament to the long-term relationships Lakeville Kitchen & Bath has built.
As to what trends to look forward to, Sirlin said white and off-white, remain very popular as do the medium tone and specialty finishes.
And while they are celebrating 80 years in business, Lakeville Kitchen & Bath is more focused on tomorrow than 80 years from now.
“Let’s take it one day at a time,” Sirlin said.
