About Steve and Detailed Interiors

Charlotte area remodeling firm Detailed Interiors is owned and operated by Steve Matela, a true craftsman with more than 30 years in the construction industry. Perhaps the best way to describe Detailed Interiors is as a niche or boutique kitchen and bathroom remodeling contractor. Over the years Steve and his talented crews have worked on a variety of projects, but their passion is creating kitchen and bath masterpieces.

Today Detailed Interiors focuses almost exclusively on kitchen and bathroom renovations, bringing years of expertise and experience to homeowners and providing a complete design-build solution. Steve and his team take on only a few select projects each year, which allows them to focus on quality and performance, rather than quantity and juggling multiple projects.

Charlotte Kitchen Remodeling Contractor

One of the ways Detailed Interiors stays detail oriented is by having a small, dedicated team of expert craftsman that are consistent and reliable. When you hire Detailed Interiors, Steve himself will oversee your project — you don’t get passed off to a less experienced project supervisor.

This approach leads to better, more consistent communication with homeowners, and a level of quality that is difficult for general contractors to match. Homeowners who select Detailed Interiors receive incredible value for their investment, a hassle-free construction process and a home that brings joy for decades to come.
