There’s no better way to visualize your dream home than to physically compare each material side-by-side. When it’s time to tackle a remodeling project, some homeowners might have a very particular vision, while others might want to explore every possibility. ACo, a full-service design & remodeling business, has built their design gallery showroom to suit the needs of any project. Now with their expanded lighting selections, it’s easier than ever to plan for jobs big and small.

ACo works with individual homeowners as well as builders and contractors, who like to bring their clients into ACo’s design gallery showroom. There, they can see in person the variety of materials ACo offers in tile, flooring, cabinetry, and lighting. Homeowners can personally select their custom cabinetry. Different tile swatches are available in every shade and texture. The new custom lighting display showcases a variety of unique modern lighting fixtures from pendants to wall sconces.

“When people think of a wall sconce, they often envision something ornate or antique. But today you will find a much wider variety of styles such as a linear modern fixture that looks great alongside a bathroom mirror. A linear sconce can elongate the space providing aesthetic height as well as good task lighting,” says Keriann Logan, Communications Director at ACo. “We’ve also got some wall sconces with that more antique, deco style that look like a crystal ball on top of a muted gold fixture. That juxtaposition of modern and old-world elegance adds a cool vibe to a bar space.”

While lighting is ACo’s latest addition to their showroom, there is so much more on display to spark your design inspiration. If ACo doesn’t have something in their showroom but the item is available through one of their vendors, the ACo team can typically order a sample.

For example, when it comes to custom cabinets, ACo can have a sample made for you of a custom color match on your chosen wood species. “It’s so helpful to see that sample in person, and compare it to your tile, countertop, or flooring selections,” says Logan, who encourages homeowners to always look at their selections side-by-side to be sure they create a cohesive design.

“This is so important because seeing it firsthand goes a long way towards alleviating some of that anxiety homeowners have when building or remodeling,” says Logan. “You can imagine getting custom cabinets and installing this beautiful tile and then realizing that the undertone doesn’t match.”

ACo recently expanded their Fishers showroom to make space for a wide variety of products and vendors, increasing their selection of LVP, hardwood, and high-end carpet. ACo can even create custom rugs and stair runners in shapes and sizes that you won’t be able to find in a standard mass-market rug.

“We have some stunning textured wool options that are perfect for creating custom rugs,” says Logan. “There’s a trend these days for layering with textures and natural materials, and custom wool rugs are a wonderful solution. We order the materials and then work with local craftsmen to make your custom piece.”

Working with a company like ACo, your options for customizing the details of your kitchen or bath remodel are nearly endless. From custom cabinetry to custom insets for cabinet doors, custom shelving, custom furniture style islands and vanities, and even custom flooring.

Trust the ACo team to help you with your project. With their expertise, talent, and knowledge, they can ease your worries throughout the process to ensure you love where you live.
