Stone Masters is a family owned business serving the Las Cruces, Mesilla Valley and the surrounding community area for 20 years. Peter and Marlene Akel built the Design Center, a full-service home interiors company on West Amador St. in late 1999. That business included a stone yard across the street and a natural stone fabrication facility behind the building. The Design Center carried floor tile, carpet, cabinets and appliances, and employed 25 people — then the great recession of 2007-2008 hit.

Peter and Marlene Akel downsized the design center business — they moved out of the building, sold the land across the street where stone yard was located, moved all the slabs to the lot where the fabrication shop is still located behind the design center building on Amador, and opened Stone Masters Kitchen & Bath Center’s showroom right next to L&P Lumber on Archuleta.

Though downsizing was difficult, Peter and Marlene let go of superfluous product lines they carried at the Design Center. They focused on what they did best – providing good service and a quality finished product in the countertop business.

Today, Stone Masters Kitchen & Bath Center’s stone yard offers the largest selection of natural stone in southern New Mexico. The showroom displays several lines of quartz and as well as highly curated lines of all-wood, semi-custom cabinetry. Peter and Marlene proudly partner with premier builders in the area and consider it a privilege to have been able to do so for the last 15 years.

Along with Peter and Marlene, the team at Stone Masters includes Carolyn Cole who helps customers choose the right materials for their project as well as offering advise on color and design. Adam Marmolejo, an accredited kitchen & bath designer, offers autoCAD designs for cabinetry layouts while working through ideas relevant to individual customer needs, lifestyle and budget. The expert fabrication and installation team is guided by Operations Manger Phillip Ortiz who keeps customers happy and helps to maintain the excellent reputation that Stone Masters Kitchen and Bath Center has for customer service and follow-through.

The team at Stone Masters Kitchen & Bath Center looks forward to doing what they do best and continuing to serve the Mesilla Valley and the surrounding towns of Alamogordo, Silver City, Truth or Consequences, Cloudcroft, Ruidoso and Tularosa for many years to come!
