Gina-Mansfield-and-Sue-Schultzby Eva Potter

When you’re ready to install a sparkling new kitchen or gut your old, moldy bathroom, there’s only one place to go—Cabinet World of Olean.

It’s a one-stop-shopping mecca for kitchen and bath cabinetry, fixtures, flooring, countertops, backsplashes, frameless shower doors, toilets and even gorgeous furniture. There really is no need to look further.

Cabinet World was started in 2001, by West Penn Hardwoods owners Kim and Rocky Mehta as a natural extension of their hardwood business. In 2002, the opportunity to purchase the business was presented to Sue Schultz, who had already been working at Cabinet World since 2002. Naturally, she jumped at the chance. In 2006, Shultz brought on board Gina Mansfield, who holds a degree in interior architecture and design.

Since then, the powerhouse duo has designed many kitchens and baths in Ellicottville, Great Valley and throughout the Southern Tier.

They truly pride themselves on personalized service to make your decorating decisions easy and stress free. Also, Schultz and Mansfield don’t work on commission, so there are no high-pressure sales tactics — just honest advice.

Maybe you’ve seen HGTV’s design show “Sensible Chic,” where a designer will create the look of a high-end room at a modest price — well, these ladies can do just that for you, too! You’ll get a “boutique” shopping experience without the hefty price tag.

“A new trend we’re seeing is painted cabinets in cream, navy blue and gray, as well as touch and touchless faucets,” said Schultz.

She said hardwood flooring is still extremely popular throughout the home and is seeing a lot of interest particularly in Anderson hand-scraped styles, as well as other wood flooring by Somerset, Mullican and Alloc. Of course, tile remains an ageless favorite.

Cabinet World carries the full line of cabinetry by KraftMaid, Aristokraft, Omega and Candelight, custom-built cabinetry manufactured locally in Lockport, N.Y. You can also buy everything from basic laminate to luxury granite and quartz countertops, as well as glass, metal and tile backsplash materials from names like Corian, Silestone, Formica, Caesarstone, Cambria, Corian and Wilsonart.

Another trend in kitchen dining is adding plush seating like upholstered banquets and chairs to add comfort and soften the look. Cabinet World’s line of customizable Norwalk furniture provides thousands of combinations to create our personal style.

Shultz, who has a self-taught eye for color and arrangement, said she loves pulling the look together for her customers.

“I can lay out kitchens, do your flooring, calculate your square footage, and reconfigure rooms using our 3-D design software to give you an actual visual of how the new room could look,” she said.

Not sure when you’ll be ready to purchase but are ready to begin planning now? Cabinet World can create a package to pull all your choices together, along with images of how your room could look, to share with family and friends.

Mansfield, who specializes in space planning, can be hired for on-site consultations. She can help you coordinate your remodeling plans so they flow into adjacent rooms and help you choose paint colors and accent pieces. She will even accompany you to pick out furniture.

Want to remove a wall, relocate the oven or refrigerator, choose new windows?

Shultz said, “Gina is great at visualizing and restructuring a space.”

Cabinet World has a list of trusted companies and individuals they have worked with for many years.

If you’re looking for chic, one-of-a-kind kitchen or bath design, then plan a visit to Cabinet World. Your design project will be the envy of the neighborhood.
