2021 welcomed a new business in Coeur d’Alene—Ventura Stone. Realizing the need for a custom countertop business in the Inland Northwest—one that would showcase full-size quartz slabs for customers to see firsthand and help them to accurately envision how the movement in the stone would fit their space—owner Brian Barrios opened the doors on January 2.
“My wife and I come from a background in commercial real estate, so we easily noticed the rapidly growing development in the area, and we made the decision that this would be an exciting opportunity to open a local business,” says Brian. “We have been growing ever since day one.”
Providing excellence in start-to-finish countertops, all completed locally, while being price competitive, Ventura Stone is the only showroom located in the Inland Northwest (over a 250-mile radius) featuring full-size slabs of highly reputable stone brands that offer 25-year to lifetime warranties.
The showroom displays a variety of full-size quartz slabs from Cambria, Silestone, Dekton and Caesarstone. They also have hundreds of smaller samples on display to choose from. “We only carry stone that comes from reliable manufacturers, and all offer long-term warranties (25 years or lifetime),” according to Brian. Our Cambria quartz is American made, and we have our own in-house fabrication and installation for a start-to-finish experience that’s truly local. Everything we do is locally done!”
Brian and his team, who work with homeowners, contractors and builders, are proud to sell products that their manufacturers stand behind with excellent warranties. They offer a variety of stone options at competitive prices, as well as midrange to luxury options. “No kitchen is too small or too large for us to tackle, and we can help customers accomplish their vision and stay within budget,” assures Brian.
Ventura Stone meticulously manages the countertop process from the beginning of the order to completion, keeping the customer informed every step of the way.
“Many customers come to us, not knowing what they are looking for, or have a vision in mind but need help with the process. We enjoy helping them turn that into a reality by going through the various materials options, designs, and finally seeing the incredible transformation in their home upon completion,” states Brian. “It’s always so rewarding to see the difference new counters can make to invigorate a home!”
Local professionals and tradesmen are vital to help keep the economy and citizens moving in a prosperous and thriving direction. With this in mind, Brian wanted to ensure that, when he and his family moved to Coeur d’Alene, their business and products would benefit the community by building something useful that they could be proud to offer. “We love what we do, and we are so happy for this change in life,” he smiles.
Acknowledging the importance of supporting local businesses, the Barrios family felt the same applies to charity. They are proud to donate to Children’s Village and Open Arms and support their vital work. Ventura Stone employees also proudly donate and participate at their local churches to help the community.
Since moving to Coeur d’Alene in 2020 with their two children, Brian and Lesley could not be more grateful for the opportunity to live, work and play in Coeur d’Alene. “The success of our family business couldn’t happen without our wonderfully encouraging business partners, or our talented and hard-working sales and design crew,” Brian shares. “We are enormously grateful to the many wonderful customers who have allowed us to be part of their remodel, or new construction project. The finished results are always amazing and exciting to see.”
If you are in the process of building, or looking to transform your current home, let Brian and his team guide you in selecting the ideal countertops to fit your style and your needs. Cambria financing is available, and they are currently offering a free kitchen sink per order if placed during the month of September.
