The Designery Sets Its Sights on Raleigh with a Grand Opening Set for April

In the ever-evolving world of home design and renovation, The Designery is making waves with its latest expansion into the quaint and bustling city of Raleigh, North Carolina. April 25 marks a significant milestone for the brand and local homeowners alike, as The Designery unveils its newest showroom in North Raleigh, promising an immersive, one-stop solution for kitchen, bath, and closet design needs.

Owned and operated by Dana and Anne-Louise Merrill, the Raleigh location not only represents the growth of The Designery but also the couple’s commitment to establishing a business that feels like family. With a strong emphasis on building relationships and providing exceptional, reliable service, the Merrills are keen to become the trusted design partner for the Raleigh community. Their approach is simple yet profound: to know their clients well enough to serve them better.

Dana Merrill’s profound respect for trusted partnerships, built through his own personal experiences, underscores the mission of The Designery North Raleigh. With backgrounds that blend the creative with the technical, both Dana and Anne-Louise bring a unique set of skills to their new venture. Dana’s extensive experience in software development and project management, coupled with Anne-Louise’s expertise in piano pedagogy and homeschooling, set a solid foundation for their business. Adding a familial touch, their son, True Merrill, steps in as the project manager, reinforcing the business as a true family affair.

The Designery’s journey began much before its Raleigh debut. Established in 2007 as A1 Kitchen and Bath in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the brand underwent a significant transformation in 2019. It rebranded as The Designery and embraced a franchise model to bring its unique offering—a streamlined process for kitchen, bath, and closet renovation featuring high-quality products and personalized design expertise—closer to homeowners across various locations.

With over 100 cabinet styles, a comprehensive selection of countertops, flooring options, and the latest in virtual reality design technology, The Designery’s showrooms are designed to inspire and facilitate the design process from start to finish. Their approach demystifies the often overwhelming undertaking of home remodeling, making premium design accessible without the premium price tag.

North Raleigh’s new showroom is part of The Designery’s wider expansion in North Carolina, joining existing locations in South Charlotte, Lake Norman, and Concord. This expansion not only reflects the brand’s growing appeal but also its ability to meet the increasing demand for professional, low-stress renovation services.

As the Merrills prepare for their grand opening, their story is a testament to the power of community, expertise, and the desire to provide a service that goes beyond mere transactions. The Designery North Raleigh is more than a design center—it’s a place where trust is built, and houses transform into homes.

For Raleigh and its surrounding areas, including Cary, Morrisville, and Wake Forest, the arrival of The Designery promises a new era of home renovation. With the backing of HomeFront Brands, The Designery’s robust franchise network, and a local team committed to excellence, Raleigh residents are on the cusp of experiencing home remodeling like never before.

The invitation is open to all who wish to reimagine their spaces—visit The Designery North Raleigh and see how design dreams can turn into reality.
