Buying USA made products helps the economy, local and small businesses, and America in general. Lately, we’ve had a lot of customers asking about the products we carry that are specifically “made in the USA”. Maybe it’s the upcoming election that’s got people thinking about their local products.
Classic Kitchen and Bath makes a point to carry American-made products. We can get you whatever you need, whether it is cabinets, counter tops, hardware, or appliances, all made right here in the US of A.
CK&B has recently become a dealer of Waypoint Living Spaces, a cabinet company that proudly manufactures all of their cabinets in the US. They are also very local to us, as they are headquartered in Winchester, VA! Waypoint has a variety cabinet options with different finishes and styles, hardware, and accessories. Their website has some fun, interactive features to help you better figure out your style, too.
A few more cabinet brands manufactured in the US are:
- Wellborn Forest cabinets (pictured below)
- Omega Cabinetry
- UltraCraft cabinets
- Medallion cabinets (pictured above)
Counter tops can come from all around the world, including some exotic locales, especially if it’s a natural stone. It’s a bit more difficult to find USA-made counter tops because of this, but we’ve got them. Cambria creates some of the most beautiful quartz tops for kitchens right here in the US.
For an even more local top option, we carry Alberene Soapstone from Albemarble County, Virginia. According to their website, Alberene Soapstone Company has been harvesting, processing, and fabricating soapstone from their Virginia quarries since 1883. Soapstone is a stunning product that can give any kitchen an elegant and natural look without being showy.
TIP: Soapstone’s color darkens and changes with natural use, but if you’d like to keep it it’s original grey-blue color, try rubbing on standard mineral oil every 2 months. Also use sandpaper to get out scratches!
An exciting and gorgeous counter top brand made in the USA is Vetrazzo. Vetrazzo is a recycled glass surface manufactured near Atlanta, GA. We’ve talked about it before, because we love it, and so do our customers. Every piece from Vetrazzo is a work of art, perfect for adding a pop of sparkle to any space.
Appliances, Hardware, and Lighting
Classic Kitchen and Bath has certain brands we go to if a customer requests American-made accessories and smaller items. For high quality appliances, Whirlpool products are proudly made in the USA, like the Single Self Clean Accubake Oven, pictured to the left.
For smaller items, like hardware and lighting, we look to Atlas Homewares and Task Lighting, respectively. For more options, our designers are extremely knowledgeable about other brands that we carry, so don’t hesitate to give us a call.
For someone looking to earn points towards their LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification, buying local, American made products is a great answer. Impact the environment and reduce your global footprint by only buying products made in the USA, or, ideally, local to you.
