  • Growing and sustaining a business for more than 35 years takes giving customers what they expect, working until the job is finished and providing quality products. Just ask Guy Bolon, owner of Bolon’s Kitchens, Baths and Remodeling in Jackson Township.
    “One of our goals is to offer quality products and services to fit the client’s home versus trying making the house fit the remodel, and that keeps customers coming back,” Bolon said. “We’re doing third-generation kitchens now. People recommend us to do their kid’s kitchens and their kid’s kid’s kitchens.”
    Bolon’s opened in 1977 on Whipple Avenue in Canton and moved to its current location on Promler Avenue in 2000. The current location has a 4,000-square-foot showroom with sample bathroom and kitchen setups.
    “While we are kitchen and bath specialists, we are competitively priced on all of our lines. People who stop in will be surprised at how we’re priced,” Bolon said. “Customers also appreciate the fact that when we work on a remodel project, we respect their homes and keep it clean and work until the project is finished. We don’t start then leave for a week or two and then come back to finish. We stay until it’s done.”
    The company employs 10 people full time, including installers, designers and administration. Bolon’s has worked on thousands of kitchens and baths in new construction and remodel for residential and commercial. Bolon said they can work on just about any type of remodel project including lighting, tiling, flooring and closets.
    All project design work is completed on a computer so customers can see what the finished project will entail. Dale Mickley has been a designer at Bolon’s for 13 years.
    “We can do any type of interior project such as bookcases and fireplaces,” Mickley said. “Many clients like the job we do on their kitchen or bathroom and ask us back to do other projects. One of my favorite parts of the job is to take an existing space and redesign it.”
    The design process begins by getting an idea of what customers want and then going to their home for measurements. Designers then generate computerized drawings of the finished project.
    “The last step is to make sure the customer is satisfied with what is delivered,” Mickley said.
    One of the more unique projects Bolon’s completed was to paint kitchen cabinets the same color as a car.
    “A customer had a candy apple red Ferrari, and he asked us to paint his kitchen cabinets to match the color of the car,” Bolon said.
    A few of the latest trends in kitchens and baths include painted, multi-color cabinets in kitchens and large granite-topped islands. All-white kitchens are also popular. For bathrooms, walk-in, tiled showers are all the rage.
    Page 2 of 2 - “Walking into a bright, new bathroom is a great way to start the day. The islands in the kitchens have become a place for the family to gather around. They cook together on them or they sit and discuss the day,” Bolon said.
    The company has worked on projects all over Stark County and other parts of Northeast Ohio. Bolon said that no job is too large or too small for his designers and installers.
