Our Story

Hi! I’m Justin Smith, the owner of American Kitchen and Bath. I’ve lived in Pulaski County my entire life. I’ve been married to my beautiful wife, Shiloh, for 25 years, and we’ve raised three children and our first grandchild right here in Missouri. I’ve been in the construction industry for over 20 years.

My experience has turned me to people’s desire to have an easier, less stressful way to get their homes remodeled. Remodeling is one of the most stressful things a person can go through. Therefore, I’ve set up a streamlined, efficient, and worry-free system to put your heart at ease. No need to run all over trying to find the right fixture, color, or style. We have it all right here in our showroom. And if we don’t, we will find it for you. Our quoting system is efficient. Our designs are elegant and functional.

AKB team consists of brilliant designers and carpenters ready to fulfill your dream of a beautiful home. My motto is “If we put God first in everything, the rest is easy.” So come on by and see us and be greeted with a smile and a handshake. Let us take the worry out of your next remodeling project. By God’s grace, if you can dream it, we can build it.

Our Start to Finish Process

We start by coming to your home and measuring your space FOR FREE. We get the basic ideas of what you want, styles, color themes, products, etc. If you don’t really know what you want? Don’t worry! That’s what we are here for!
Our dedicated and talented design staff will start by creating your space in our state-of-the-art 3D rendering software. You’ll be able to see your dream come to life in 3D and full color—all the way from the paint color on the wall to the finishing on the faucet. Then we schedule a visit to our 5000-square-foot showroom for you to go over your design ideas and begin selecting your products!
When everything is finished and approved, you are placed on the construction list for our incredibly talented carpenters to come and make your dream space a reality. You Dream It, We Build It.
