About the Showrooms

Castle’s three convenient design selection studios drastically simplify the design selection process for our clients by eliminating many trips to far-flung showrooms. By consolidating many selections into central locations, our clients can work one-on-one with our designers to create a unique and well-planned project. Castle’s design selection studios feature a limited selection of the most popular choices for older homes in categories like tile, plumbing fixtures, millwork, cabinets, countertops, hardware, windows, carpet, vinyl flooring, paint, knobs/pulls, closet organization, siding, drywall, hardwood floors, and more. Seeing most of the selections together in one place helps to ensure the final project is cohesive and has that special feel.

Besides making product selections, the NE Design Selection Studio showcases Castle Building & Remodeling’s fine craftsmanship by displaying a 1940’s-era kitchen that features cherry cabinets, a 1930’s Arts & Crafts era conference room, and a 1910’s style bathroom with a hex tile floor and subway tile on the walls. The showroom has a neighborhood feel and is located in the building that was originally Jack & Ila’s Grocery Store when built in 1917.

Castle’s St. Paul Design Selection Studio was also originally a corner grocery store and features an original tin ceiling and maple hardwood floors. The newly remodeled space includes a working kitchen that tastefully mixes traditional styles and modern accents. The newly added bathroom has a sophisticated feel that blends traditional finishes such as white subway tile and detailed casing and crown molding with a modern take on hex floor tile. Stop in to see the space and get some design ideas.
