About Us

Custom Decor Carpet One Floor & Home Kitchen & Bath started with humble beginnings and still remains humble in its attitude today

Custom Decor Carpet One Ltd, in the Russell Hendrix Custom Decor building at 3011 Highway 29 in Brockville started out with humble beginnings.

Ed VanderBarren embodied the entrepreneurial spirit that started it all; from the back of a red pickup truck he started his House Painting business. In May of 1975 Ed received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Carleton University. Planning on being a teacher Ed applied to teachers college, but for the summer continued to paint houses. He eventually hired a crew that consisted of his brother and a few friends, and from there the business grew.

The painting business flourished allowing Ed to buy a business from Luigo Rigutto. The purchase of this business included valuable tools of the trade and the beneficial expertise of Mr. Rigutto. From there the business graduated into a retail store, selling Glidden Paint, Olympia tiles and wallpaper. The business continued to grow and in 1982 Jane came into the business. Custom Painting changed it’s logo to Custom Decor and moved again to the then prestigious Zellers Shopping Centre. The location was good and business was changing beginning to sell, carpet, flooring, fabric, window treatments and area rugs. Custom Decor had over 600 wallpaper patterns. They remained in this location until the final move to 3011 Highway 29.

This will be the 20th year in this location and the store has continued to evolve and remain current offering the latest in trends and new innovations.
