Keeping It Local...
and Winning
National Awards

At 1010 Interiors, local is as local does. Owner Leann Zunker takes pride in working with local contractors and local suppliers, doing as much business as possible within the local community.

“We are not a chain store,” she says. “We are an independent business that supports local families.”

But this local company receives national recognition. LeAnn received the grand prize from Crystal Kitchens in 2007 for her kitchen design in Brad and Karen Ranning’s new log home. Other 1010 Interiors design projects have won awards, too.

The staff at 1010 Interiors doesn’t rest on their laurels. Every customer receives first-rate advice and assistance for interior designs of new home and remodeling projects. The expansive showroom includes a wealth of floor coverings, countertops, and cabinetry, as well as kitchen and bath interiors. More flooring and carpet remnants are available at the company’s warehouse.

Complete interior design assistance is available, including color selection and window coverings. 1010 Interiors can produce a computer-generated drawing of a planned room so you can see how it looks. They specialize in unique, personalized designs.

“We try to offer something different than the big box stores--something you won’t see somewhere else,” says LeAnn.

Some customers prefer to have everything selected for them. Others want to make their own choices. 1010 Interiors has done complete interiors for many North Shore homes and provides whatever level of assistance the customer needs.

“We’re happy to help you as much as you want or as little as you want,” LeAnn says.
