Betsy Walker purchased Kitchens & Interiors from the long-time owner in the spring of 2019. After years of being under a corporate umbrella, Betsy decided she wanted to make the move into business ownership to have more flexibility and freedom with her designs. With thirteen years of experience in the kitchen and bath industry, she has a vast knowledge of cabinetry, plumbing, and counter top materials to help guide her clients to a design that works best for their lifestyle.
Betsy has an Interior Design degree from Purdue University and has become a member of the National Kitchen and Bath Association. Through the years she has completed training at various cabinet suppliers, has visited the Kohler, Wisconsin to take part in plumbing training, and has visited GE, Sub Zero, and Wolf appliance facilities to learn about cooking products.
Betsy resides in Indianapolis with her husband, Grant. She keeps a small office space there to help her central Indiana clients make selections and spends 2 days a week in the Terre Haute showroom. She enjoys reading a good book, spending time with family, and walking her dog Lucy.
Kim joined Kitchens & Interiors in 2005, originally filling the role of office manager. She quickly fell in love with closet design. As a specialist in closet design, Kim has obtained her expertise and knowledge through her wide range of work on closet remodels, laundry rooms, pantries, utility rooms, offices, and garages. After a few years spent with the Kitchen & Interiors team, Kim expanded her skills and dove into kitchen and bath design. Kim’s background in residential and commercial space planning and organization contribute to her capabilities as a kitchen, closet, and bath designer.
It is Kim’s belief that there is a direct correlation between organization and stress. She makes optimal organization, along with unique designs catered to the client’s needs and budget, primary objectives in each project. In order to deliver on these objectives and stay up-to-date in design, Kim has attended the National Kitchen and Bath Show for the last fourteen years, and has completed extensive training with Mouser Custom Cabinetry and Delta Faucet Company.
Kim is a lifelong Terre Haute resident and an Indiana State University graduate. She enjoys exercising, expressing her creativity, and spending time with her husband, Mike, and two children, Logan and Lauren.
