JAMESTOWN — Ashley Cole always had an eye for home design.

So why not turn it into a career?

Cole and her husband, Anders, own Jamestown's Home Design Center. When the couple purchased the business in 2019, there were three separate locations — the showroom on Main Street, Valley Flooring in Valley City and Jamestown Creek Cabinetry.

We have different options to fit different budgets, We can help with the project from start to finish.
Ashley Cole, co-owner, Home Design Center

Since signing the papers four years ago, Cole has helped grow the business to offer more services and options for those in the market for an update to their home or business.


"We took all of the flooring out of our Main Street location and put it down at our (Valley Flooring) location by Jetstream," Cole said. "So when you go into that store, that is strictly flooring whether that be hard surface or carpet. It was just kind of taking over the showroom."

For everything else besides flooring, the Main Street location is the place to be for anyone who has a hankering for a home design project.

"If you want to come in and simply browse decor, because you want to refresh your space, you can do that," Cole said. "Or if you are doing a remodel project, we have all the materials needed for that — if you are doing cabinetry, countertops, you can get light fixtures in here, window treatments, decorative hardware, paint, tile — you name it. We get told a lot that we have very unique items in here."

The couple added a paint line and furniture and has expanded window treatment selections.

While customers are encouraged to browse and purchase the decor offered at the Main Street location, Cole said most of the company's business comes via the home design process.

"If they want a kitchen redone, they come into us and we would go out to their home, measure up the space, figure out things they are wanting — things they like about their space, things they dislike about their space — and then we have a design program that we put all of that into," Cole said. "We show them different layout concepts and then from there we would help them pick out the cabinets, countertops — everything they would need to do that project."

She said some people like to be involved in the electrical or plumbing aspects of a project, but if they don't want to be involved, Home Design Center can line up all of the disciplines for the project.

"We can do product only as well," she said. "Every situation is just a little bit different."


Cole said the Home Design Center team typically services Jamestown, Valley City and surrounding rural areas like Cooperstown, Carrington, Edgeley and Gackle-Streeter.

"We have different options to fit different budgets," Cole said. "We can help with the project from start to finish. We have our own install crew, we can help get the products for the entire project. We're kind of a one-stop shop. We can do anything from the studs in."
