Cabinetry by Design, LLC opened for business in 2006 when its founder, Beth Mann, realized her dream of owning and operating a business that involves doing something she loves. From an early age, Beth knew she loved discovering how homes were planned and designed. Every time she entered someone’s home, she noticed how the rooms were planned out and their spacial relationship to the house. Beth always dreamed of designing homes, and that dream has become reality through the formation of Cabinetry By Design, LLC.
Beth studied Architecture and Interior Design at Virginia Tech. Her preference for designing in the residential market – rather than commercial spaces – remained her passion, and she graduated from Virginia Tech with an Interior Design degree, emphasizing in Kitchen and Bath design. She has completed both the Certified Kitchen Design (CKD) program and Certified Bath Design (CBD) program through the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA). Completing both these programs has earned her a designation of Certified Kitchen and Bathroom Designer (CKBD). Beth is currently working toward her designation as Certified Master Kitchen and Bath Designer (CMKBD).
At the start of her career, Beth gained experience in the industry by working for others in space planning and kitchen design, before branching out on her own to start her company. For Beth, designing kitchens and baths is not like work. She finds all parts of the job enjoyable, such as the process of renovating her client’s home and the challenges of finding workable solutions. Most importantly, she delights in collaborating with homeowners as their space is transformed. Beth likes getting to know the homeowners, as well as how they use their space and what their goals are for renovation. Beth is a space planner at heart, and her priority is making a space efficient and functional before adding the finishing touches to make it a beautiful, well designed space.
In addition to the creative side of the renovation process, Beth is also very conscious of quality and integrity. She recommends products that she trusts, and is focused on keeping to a schedule as much as possible, so that the tear out and installation process moves swiftly and efficiently. Beth never wants to do something in your home that she wouldn’t do in hers. It is also important to her to follow up and follow through with her clients. Her character and core values shine through as she remains focused on customer service and giving you the best final product. And, after more than 15 years of designing, she still loves each new space she encounters due to how it gives her a new puzzle to creatively solve.
In her free time, Beth serves her community through various local organizations and stays busy with her family that includes not only her husband and three children, but also two fun loving dogs! Cabinetry By Design, LLC also sponsors various organizations throughout the New River Valley. Follow her on Facebook and Instagram, and feel free to email her with any new inquiries or questions.
