Ferguson is Planning Massive Showroom Expansion

A recent expansion of Ferguson’s Carmel showroom is the first of several exciting rollouts for the multi-functional design space. Ferguson’s Showroom, located inside Carmel’s Indiana Design Center, is already one of the best spaces in Central Indiana to select high-quality products for any area of your home. With the opening of their new expanded cabinet area, guests can now explore a custom cabinet selection center that houses a diverse assortment of cabinets, door hardware, countertops, and more.

“It’s a beautiful meeting design space where customers can lay out all their pieces to get a better sense of how it all fits together,” says Natalie Gertiser, Showroom Manager. “That area can be utilized now.”

This expanded cabinet area is only the first addition to the Carmel showroom, which will be more than 20,000 sq. ft. once the expansion project is complete in the fall of 2025. Once all new areas are open to the public, the Carmel location will be one of the top five largest Ferguson showrooms in the country.

“The expansion will include adding an appliance wing that will enable us to bring in new appliance lines such as Dacor, Samsung, and Gaggenau, which is an ultra-premium line of appliances,” says Jeremy Konechne, Indiana Area Residential Sales Manager.

The expansion will not only provide room for more appliances and retail, but it will also bring to life a third live showroom kitchen.

“We’re working on doing some ongoing cooking events at our showroom, including live demonstrations and cooking classes to be scheduled on a monthly basis,” says Konechne. “It takes a lot of planning to host those events, but with more space, we’ll have the availability and flexibility to invite more vendors to do such things within our showroom.”

Ferguson hopes this expansion will also create opportunities for more diverse and in-depth programming in the future. They have plans to incorporate a Napa wine tasting bar, which will provide wine on tap during showroom events.

The Ferguson Showroom will remain open throughout the expansion, and roll out fresh spaces and features as different sections are completed. Ferguson also regularly changes their displays to keep products fresh and new, so there’s always something to see in their showroom. In January, the team went to the Dallas Lighting Market, which inspired them to feature the latest in high-quality, modern lighting fixtures.

“Each week we are putting new orders here on the floor,” says Gertiser. “We are constantly changing out products so we have the most up-to-date lighting.”

Ferguson’s showroom consultants are able to provide expertise in design, budget planning, and product selection for kitchen and bath projects. When the spacious new showroom opens, Ferguson will maximize their sales staff, experts, and resources to ensure an exemplary experience for customers.
