Here at CABINETCORP: we are a family. We also consider all our dealers as part of our family. In 2015 we want to start featuring some of our talented dealers and the amazing work they do in our new "Dealer of the Month" segment. As the start of a new family tradition, we are proud to announce and congratulate our Dealer of the month, Henderson Development and Design based out of Destin, Florida!
We sat down with Melissa Young of Henderson Development and asked her a few questions about their growing business and how CabinetCorp has helped facilitate that growth so far.
CabinetCorp: Tell our readers a little bit about your company. How long has Henderson Development and Design been in Business?
Melissa Young: Henderson Development and Design LLC. was formed in January 2012.
CC: Where did the owners Henderson Development and Design get their start in the industry?
MY: With Tim Henderson’s 30+ years as a general contractor, and his wife Shellie Henderson’s 20+ years of of interior design experience it was an obvious decision. The collaboration of this husband and wife team is remarkable. The ability they have to bounce ideas of each other and combine the construction and design process so effortlessly is what sets Henderson Development and Design apart. They honestly put their heart and soul into every project. Along with a stellar support team of employees, every project runs like a well-oiled machine. Everyone at our company takes pride in their work and puts the satisfaction of the client above all else.
CC: I have seen photos of your work, and you guys really offer your customers a lot in terms of services. Tell us a little more about what services you offer and specialize in?
MY: We specialize in custom homes, remodeling and renovation, interior design, lighting, landscape and interior furnishings. We are truly a “Turn Key” service. Whether it be a small rental property or a high end custom home, we offer complete installation from building, furnishings, bedding to housewares.
CC: What are some of your favorite projects? Do you have a room that you like to do most often, or a type of design that you just love right now?
MY: All of our projects are close to our hearts! Some of the most recent projects include a high end remodel of a coastal beach house in Watersound, Florida. Our client purchased a newly built home, but was not satisfied with the cabinetry in the kitchen or master bathroom. We designed a more functional kitchen adding beautiful cabinetry in a crisp vintage white finish, an oversized square island with ample work space and topped it off with exquisite slab of quartz. This led into a new wet bar and custom cabinets flanking the fireplace.
In the master bathroom we added custom cabinetry in a beautiful gray finish. The new gray vanity was truly enhanced by the custom oyster shell chandelier above the bath tub as well as the oyster shell framed mirrors. It most definitely has a coastal chic feel!

Another exciting project was a penthouse with view of both the Gulf of Mexico and the magnificent Destin harbor. We went for a more modern coastal look using dark espresso cabinets combined with a white island. This four bedroom beauty called for elegant finishes and fixtures. To achieve this, we accented the espresso cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms with oversized chrome hardware and polished chrome lighting fixtures. The “WOW” factor is the rectangular capiz shell chandelier in the dining room, the shell scones in the bunk room, and the square shell chandelier over the master bath spa.
Currently we are in the process of completing a 7,000 sq. ft. New Orleans Creole style waterfront home. In this home we have 15ft. cypress beams in the ceiling, old Chicago brick walls in the pantry, and Venetian plaster on the fireplaces. We chose more ornate cabinetry, with detail in the moldings. The butler pantry showcases custom cabinets with ample space for any appliance imaginable. It is a chef’s dream!
CC: What would you say is one of your most memorable experiences working in the industry, or one of your favorite parts about the job?
MY: Every experience creates a lasting memory! The most rewarding aspect of our business is that each client becomes a long lasting friend. Several we have even done second and third projects with! We spend so much time nurturing the vision into a reality, the excitement we see on a client’s face as they walk into a completed project is such joy and satisfaction.
CC: There are a lot of trends happening in kitchen and bath designs right now. Do you have any design trends that are most popular with your clients?
MY: As we are located in a coastal area, of course our designs lean more towards soft hues of grey, white, cream with accents of sea mist, a subtle blue-green color. Currently we are excited about the trend using navy and copper.
CC: We love working with you, and have for a while. Tell our reader, how long have you been using CabinetCorp for your cabinets?
MY: We are pleased to say that we have been using CabinetCorp since the day our business opened!
CC: Out of the styles that we currently offer, what would you say are your favorites or the ones you use most often?
MY: Our favorites are the shaker style, Cambridge Antique White, as well as Yorkshire Antique White.
CC: How do you use our cabinets the most? Is it strictly kitchen and bath?
MY: Henderson Development and Design does not limit the use of cabinets to just kitchen, bath and laundry. We like to add cabinets in the garage, large closets, and even under bunk beds.
CC: What would you say is your favorite part about working with CabinetCorp?
MY: EVERYTHING! The customer service is topnotch. The variety of selections and styles is always a plus, but the very favorite part is the quick turn-around time.
It is without hesitation that CabinetCorp commends and congratulates Henderson Development and Design on their hard work, dedication and talents! We are so thrilled to have them as part of the CabinetCorp family and we look forward to the many years to come!
