Great Places to Shop Locally According to the Design Experts
Home and design trends are constantly evolving, and if you’re like me and look online for what’s in and what’s out, the results are not only overwhelming but can also leave you wondering which “expert” you can trust. That’s why in the latest issue of our sister magazine, Trendsetters, we sought answers from real local home and design experts. Not only did they provide home and design hacks, DIY tips, and product recommendations for the home, but they also provided recommendations for local shops, vendors, and suppliers that they personally have worked with on home and design projects.
We took each local recommendation from the design experts and ranked them in order of how frequently they were recommended, while also providing commentary from them on why they love shopping for home products and materials at these places. We at Fargo Monthly love shopping local—so if you’re beginning a new home project, we encourage you to consider checking out these local businesses!
1. Clearwater Custom Cabinets
Recommended the most with four times by our local design experts recommended Clearwater Custom Cabinets—which says a lot. Some of the notable reasons they were recommended included having great customer service, having a large selection, and great attention to detail.
