SEE MATERIALS Founded in 2002 as a multi-disciplinary company, SEE MATERIALS has transformed the world of interior furnishings. As a full concept showroom, See Materials is one of a kind. The concept of offering all the materials needed to furnish a home under one roof is a unique one. This concept revolutionizes the remodeling process by bringing materials selection, full service design and the entire build process under one house. In turn, this produces a highly efficient, cohesive and exciting experience for all involved.See Materials emerged after many years of experience in the residential and commercial real estate market. As a full service General Contractor licensed in the state of California, and after a decade of providing full service contracting, including renovations of kitchens, bathrooms, home additions, etc., See Mateirals Inc. was established with the realization that we could provide more than just construction services. Given its experience in construction, See Materials identified that there were many products, such as custom cabinetry, appliances, plumbing fixtures, flooring, porcelain and ceramic tile, glass tile, etc. that they found were superior to others in the field. Why not use this experience to guide their existing and new clientele in selecting not only a good contractor but great products for their project? IT was this idea that brought forth the creation of See Materials, Inc. a full concept showroom that guides its clients from initial concept development through the entire completion of installation.
One of the most tedious experiences for consumers is the amount of work required to purchase all the materials necessary to complete a remodeling project. Through the years, we recognized that many products were superior in quality to others and recommended these products to our customers. However, many of these products could not be purchased in the same location so the client would, by necessity, be forced to go to many shops to complete their purchase. We have taken that headache and hard work away from client and they can now purchase all of their materials from our showroom. Our Material Product Specialist can help the client from the beginning of the experience and make them more knowledgeable regarding the best suited materials for their project.
There is a well-known theory that claims, “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” However, when it comes to kitchen and bath design, we have all observed that the whole has potential for being disappointingly less than the sum of the parts. Our commitment is to make the theory work. When all the elements are right – cabinets, countertops, appliances, flooring and accessories are correct; when color and texture, lighting and visual balance are achieved and complement each other; when your new space is efficient, functional and beautiful and, above all, when a dream has been realized – then indeed it is magical and the whole is more than the sum of the parts. The new space invites us, the quality of life is increased and the time, cost and effort have been amply repaid.
We have also observed that our first vision of your perfect kitchen or bath may not be the same as your vision of your perfect kitchen or bath. If magic is to happen, we have to care about your concerns, not ours. We ask a lot of questions and we listen carefully to your answers. Only then can we bring our collective training, experience and creative sensibilities to bear on a problem which has been clearly defined. Together we create your magic space and enjoy doing it.
