If you’ve been to City Home Center lately, you may have noticed a new face at the store. Cynthia Wiginton has joined our team recently, and she brings with her a decade of experience in kitchen and bathroom design. We’re thrilled to have her expertise at City Home Center because, over the years as a local home improvement store, we’ve learned that nothing is more valuable than having an expert to talk to when it comes to making big home decisions.
Cynthia was born in Louisiana but raised in Laurel. She married her high school sweetheart, and they have been together 29 years. She is a mom to one daughter who lives in Rhode Island. In fact, her daughter moved to Rhode Island for college and has now begun her career in a design-related industry, following in her mom’s footsteps.
Cynthia began her career in home design at Haverty’s Furniture, selling and setting up their showroom as a visual coordinator. After Haverty’s, Cynthia moved on to become a designer for Lowes and spent eight years as a kitchen designer and an additional two years as a kitchen and bath specialist, working every day on helping her customers get the home of their dreams. “I have managed projects from start to finish – beginning with measuring and helping a customer determine everything from where to move plumbing to what finishes they want on their cabinet hardware,” Cynthia said.
When asked about her favorite part of her job at City Home Center, Cynthia said she loves doing kitchen remodels, “There’s just something about taking an old, outdated space and making it new again.” She helps customers pick out everything from paint colors, flooring, appliances, finishes and more, covering every detail of a renovation. After a decade in the industry, Cynthia understands that home building and renovating can be overwhelming, and her job at City Home Center is to take any worry or anxiety out of the process and make it fun for the customer.
“One of the greatest features we have in helping our customers visualize our design concepts is our 2020 software,” Cynthia said. “It is a complimentary service that allows me to draft up a few different designs for our customers to see, and it really helps them make better decisions about the layout and structure of their home.” City Home Center takes pride in not only being a local business with friendly service and expertise but also a place for shoppers to find modern design innovations and the latest materials and tools to make sure their home is built with the latest techniques.
Cynthia is available at City Home Center throughout the week and would be thrilled to help you design the kitchen or bathroom of your dreams. To make an appointment, simply call 601-426-2800.
