Dream up your next project with Coast to Coast Kitchen and Bath
Coast to Coast opened on New Circle in February with a ribbon cutting celebration attended by a large gathering of family, friends, and neighbors.
By March, most of the state had shut down for a pandemic, though building materials were considered essential goods and services, and those stores remained open.
Owners Julia and Igor Demchenkov quickly pivoted to accommodate all the changes. Julia tells us, “Coast to Coast’s primary focus was to protect the health and safety of our employees, customers, vendor partners, and their families. Immediately we took preventative measures to keep everyone safe while still offering our life essential services. Our customers remain our top priority.”
Igor adds, “The work we do is critical to hundreds of people and local companies and we’re committed to being there when our customers and colleagues need us most.”
With everyone staying “healthy at home,” homeowners throughout the bluegrass were suddenly inspired to spruce up their environment. We asked if Julia noticed any trends in home improvement.
“Absolutely!,” she said. “Honed vs. Polished has been one of the most popular best selling trends. One of our showroom displays is Leather Finish Granite with waterfall island. Almost all of our customers are fascinated with such beautiful granite. And not only interiors…We have many customers that stop by to shop our remnant rack with so many exotic material options for DIY projects, custom hand-made coffee tables, outdoor barbeque countertops etc.”
If you’ve spotted quartz as the hot trend on every HGTV renovation these days, you’re not alone. Julia says, “Quartz countertops deliver elegant beauty and supreme performance. It is an ideal choice for homeowners looking for a maintenance-free surface with stunning aesthetics.”
As for their own HGTV habits, she says, “We are most inspired by Joana and Chip Gaines from Fixer Uppers. They hold the values that are dear to us, the love for family which we can closely relate to and Christian principles.”

[Client Timothy Hicks posted] ‘I went to Coast to Coast Kitchen & Bath looking for something to make a step up to my retaining wall in the backyard. Igor showed me some granite remnants and suggested that I take a piece and cut it myself.He explained how I should do it and said ‘you can do it, it’s not that difficult.’ I took his advice and it turned out great.Thanks for the granite and confidence to do it myself. Love the end result.”
Camille Burnett shared “I had the best experience with this wonderful company! Igor and his crew did exceptional work on both of my kitchen renovations. They off er excellent customer service, quality workmanship, and ALWAYS go above and beyond! I give them my highest recommendation and I will be a lifelong customer for sure!”
Asked for insider tips our readers might try at home, Julia shares a few insights, “One of the most recommended tips we offer is Contrast: contrast always inspires awe! Another tip to consider when you’re remodeling your kitchen is a more open feel while making your space feel brighter and tidier, instead of bulky upper kitchen cabinets, think about going for a more clean and minimal look by completely skipping out on cabinets above your countertops.This will give you space to have open shelving installed. It will make your ceilings look higher, and will keep the overall feel of your kitchen lighter in appeal.”
Our neighbors can’t wait to try out her advice.
