Our Custom Wood Countertops Blog features the industry’s most talented and innovative designers throughout the United States and abroad. This featured design includes a custom Anvil™ Argentum Metal Kitchen Countertop designed by Todd Wiley, Senior Designer, TruKitchens.
About the Designer: Todd Wiley, TruKitchen’s Senior Designer, has been working in the industry for the past 25 years. His passion ignited in college when he started working for a builder and cabinet shop owner. Realizing that he had to immerse himself in the industry to learn, he took a job at local shop on the Lake Michigan shoreline. As his passions grew, he moved on to Standard Kitchen Distributors where he continued to master the trade. This experience gave him the exposure to the systems and process that he was searching for. Feeling like there was more to learn on the design-end of the business, Todd then spent 7 years at a Cascade based design shop. For him, this experience gave him what he needed to further pursue his passion and open his own design shop, which is where he is today.
Designer Tip: “Be willing to break the rules and adapt to client needs. In this instance, every member of the family is over 6 feet tall and we wanted to ensure the design wasn’t just aesthetically pleasing, but comfortable for them to use as well. The counter height in the kitchen is 38” and we had custom cabinetry built taller to accommodate.”
