Spotlight: Luxury Home Coatings
Join us as we talk with Erin Thomas, Director of Operations at Luxury Home Coatings, about growing the business from demonstrations at the Great Big Home and Garden Show to changing families’ daily lives!
What is your first memory of your company?
One of my most vivid first memories is from our initial launch at the home and garden show. The reaction people had when they saw what our coatings could do from the video and our live demonstrations was energizing. Their jaws hit the floor and I couldn’t stop smiling as I told them I wasn’t joking.
How does your first memory compare to what the company has become today?
Today we are more confident in Ceramic Pro’s ability to protect your home then ever before. We have started testing it in other markets such as hair salons and horseback riding and are having great success. The possibilities are truly endless and we’re excited to see how far we can take it.
What has surprised you the most about launching a business?
Although I am not the owner, the strength and motivation I have found within myself through launching this company has really surprised me. Im excited to come into work each day, to learn, to grow and watch Luxury Home Coatings develop into something special.
Who are some of the coolest people you've met since opening?
We prefer to keep our clientele exclusive therefore I can’t disclose names, but I will say that it’s so cool what you learn about a person from being welcomed into their home.
What might we be surprised to learn about your business?
You might be surprised to know that we are only 1 of 5 companies in the U.S who have started utilizing Ceramic Pro for the protection and ease of cleaning in homes. Ceramic Pro was originally invented for use in the industrial market and overtime has found its way into the protection of airplanes, vehicles and now homes.
How do you think your company will change in the next 5 years?
Over the next 5 years Luxury Home Coatings will begin working more with builders and designers to alleviate any inconvenience to the consumer. We plan to start expanding into commercial accounts as well to provide salons, hotels and other companies with our sanitary, easy to clean coating!
What has been your main goal at this company?
To inform! Our coating solves a problem that most homeowners/builders aren’t aware can be solved. They aren’t aware there’s something that can prevent fingerprints on stainless steel appliances or that they can choose any stone for their countertop (even honed white marble) and it be sanitary, stain-free and easier to clean than quartz.
What has been the most satisfying thing about opening this business?
We coated the kitchen of a young family last month. They selected honed white marble for the entire kitchen and within 2 weeks of their install it had already started to etch and stain. She was defeated and felt like she couldn’t use her kitchen without fear of ruining it. We applied our coating on her marble, backsplash and appliances and she’s beyond happy. She’s able to not only use her kitchen now but now she can abuse it if she wants and it will always look beautiful. Its also MUCH easier to clean now which means more family time. Giving people their homes back, time with their families back and a sense of peace in their home is the most satisfying part for me.
Why did you choose Cleveland?
I was born and raised here and there’s nowhere else I would rather be!
Is there anything else you would like to tell us?
Our company cleans hard so homeowners can clean easy. Our process and coating can bring life back into the old and preserve the perfection of the new.
