Creations was founded in 2012 by female entrepreneur Maelei Catt during her quest for eudaemonia aka creating her “good life.”
The company and its employees have spent many years working in the kitchen and bath industry learning what can make remodeling stressful or even sometimes unattainable if you’re on a tight budget. Our goal at Creations is to offer professional design services, products and services for every budget, and use our experience to evolve the kitchen buying experience. We are always striving to distill the decision making for a less overwhelming, more enjoyable experience.
Maelei Catt has attended the School of Hard Knocks as well as small business and entrepreneur courses at St. Kate’s. With 18 years of experience in the remodeling industry, her mission is to use her knowledge to provide a better experience for DIY remodelers and contractors. Her passion is to help create “the good life” for her family and those around her.
