Wood and Stone Kitchen, Bath & Tile Showroom, a new kitchen and bath showroom that has recently opened on East New York Avenue, is being touted as the first of its type in the Crown Heights area.
It was opened adjacent to and part of True Value Hardware Express, the hardware and building supply store owned by the Junik and Sperlin families for the past 15 years.
“Our goal is to provide a one-stop shop for Crown Heights residents so that people can shop right here in the neighborhood,” General Manager Josh Braun told COLlive.com, about the brand new and modern showroom.
“No need to go to Manhattan, Boro Park or Williamsburg. We have everything here, designed as a ‘one stop shop,’ which translates to tremendous savings in both time and money being spent by the customer.”
Braun invites customers to visit the showroom, to feel and experience the array of cabinetry, countertops, tiles, bathroom fixtures and more. They offer middle to high-end products and guarantee to be competitive with just about any similar dealer offering the equivalent types of products and services.
Certified designer Sharon Minto, who has extensive experience in kitchen, bath and tile design, is on hand to bring customers’ kitchen and bath projects to life.
“We will design and render a full 3-D image of exactly what your kitchen will look like even before you complete your purchase, including the hardware and appliances, so there will be no unforeseen surprises,” Minto told COLlive.
Their large selection of kitchen cabinets includes some brand new lines which are made in the USA, and which are of high quality with American made Blum hardware. These cabinets are available in many assorted designs, colors, and finishes.
“The all American made cabinets have become a very popular choice with our customers, because of their exceptional quality and competitive pricing. We are the only ones that sell this brand in this area,” Braun says.
Wood & Stone also offers a wide selection of countertop materials, including quartz counters made by Cambria, Spectrum, Emerstone and others.
Their bathroom showroom offers a vast selection of vanities, sinks and mirrors which are all on display for viewing, and which are made to fit into any area of your home.
Their expansive tile showroom fits any budget and style, and ranges from smaller formats and mosaics, to large formats as large as 36″ x 36″, 24″ x 48″. Brands they carry include Porcelanosa, Glazzio, Emzer, Big Box, Merola, Lada and others.
They also offer kitchen and bath hardware including faucets, cabinet knobs and handles in many varieties. Popular brands include Delta, American Standard, Huntington Brass, Atlas, Vigo, Danze, Fine Fixtures, just to name a few.
The Wood & Stone Showrooms also include a Benjamin Moore Store of the Future Showroom, featuring a full selection of Benjamin Moore paints and finishes, along with professional guidance and advice.
“We would love to welcome customers to our new showrooms, where they can see and experience our tremendous selection, and find something they absolutely love for their new home,” Braun says.

Everything came and looks amazing! So so happy!!!
And your always with a smile and always so helpful, no matter how many questions I have.
When my husband and I bought our house over three years ago we shopped everywhere to find the right kitchen cabinets. After shopping around true value had the best prices and great service. We love our kitchen and so does everyone that sees it.
Thank you, Sharon, for your help, and always with a smile!
I would also like to see the LUXURY VIYNL TILES, It mops well and is easier than ceramic on the feet. I would love to go local instead of lowes.
A great addition to CH stores
Sharon was extremely helpful. Great to have this shopping experience available in the neighborhood.

Me and my wife needed help choosing a kitchen and Sharon and the team was a real pleasure. From the initial design to every detail. Wood and Stone came through. They even stopped by my home to see how the installation was going! A wonderful addition here in crown heights. Thank you!
do they sell Luxury Vinyl Tile? It’s the up and coming choice for kitchens, would love to know if they have a large selection, specifically companies that are approved for installation over radiant heating.
I was in the store today to pick out paint colors and Sharon was very helpful and professional. The store has a lot of beautiful things to choose from.
I highly recommend meeting with Sharon for all of your kitchen and bath design needs. She is exceptionally talented and a real pleasure to work with!
People make the mistake of thinking that shopping for home fixtures out of the neighborhood will net them more glamorous purchases. Well, guess what?
