Showcase Kitchens & Baths

Showcase Kitchens & Baths provides complete kitchen and bath design and remodeling services.  We offer it all, from new cabinets and countertops to a complete redesign of your kitchen and baths.  Our experience of over 30 years brings you a wealth of ideas, know-how, and quality.

We started opening showrooms in 1987

The founder and general contractor of Showcase is Jim Rice. For decades before opening the first showroom in Camarillo, he ran a large and successful contracting business specializing in Kitchen and Bathroom remodels. He was troubled with the difficulty that homeowners have when choosing the myriad of ever-growing choices for remodeling. This pushed him to solve the problem, and he decided to make a severe and heavy investment into opening a well-appointed showroom to help his customers.


Our showrooms were created to simplify your life as a homeowner seeking to remodel your kitchen or bathroom. The investment paid great dividends because our customers loved how much easier a showroom is than a contractor with a handful of catalogs and samples out of his truck. Soon, the word got out, and we grew.


Subsequently, we added a second showroom in Westlake Village and our Forest Construction office, then the third showroom in Encino. Our customers love how the galleries help them make decisions and learn about features and options they had never seen before.


Our showroom in Westlake Village—which may be the finest showroom you’ll ever see—features Wood-Mode/Brookhaven custom cabinetry exclusively in five distinct themes, allowing you to explore kitchen design possibilities. Wood-Mode has been certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) as meeting the standards for its “Environmental Stewardship Program” (ESP). This program was created to recognize industry manufacturers who use environmentally friendly materials and production processes.

Meet the key people at Showcase

Showcase Kitchens and Baths is a family-run business with Jim and his son-in-law Ernesto as the critical people in the industry. For over a decade, Jim has been grooming Ernesto to take over the company. Ernesto runs the day-to-day operations as well as oversees all design and construction. Many of our customers know Ernesto because of his great attention to detail and creative design talents.
