Who is The Plumber’s Wife?

The Plumber’s Wife has been a kitchen and bathroom boutique specializing in kitchen and bathroom design and whole home decorating since 2008.

We often get asked how we got our name: The Plumber’s Wife. Before we had a store, Paula would help friends and family freshen up their spaces, all from the comfort of her home. Her husband Lenard owned a plumbing company where she would assist their clients with their finishing touches. Often times when clients would call looking to speak to Paula, they would ask to speak to “the plumber’s wife!”

When Paula and Len decided to open a storefront, they knew The Plumber’s Wife would be the perfect fit. Located in Arthur, Ontario, we proudly offer interior design services and packages regardless of your location or budget.

Our design centre has a large selection of kitchen and bathroom fixtures on display including a working wet shower feature. Visit us in-store for a free bathroom layout consultation. Bring along measurements of your bathroom, including window location and height, door location, ceiling height and floor plan dimensions.

Appointments are recommended. In-home consultations are also available – contact us for a fee schedule.
