Economy Kitchen and Bath of New Jersey - Showroom and TeamEconomy Kitchens and Baths offers the latest in kitchen and bathroom products while combining old world  craftsmanship by our in-house staff.

Our History Since 1941

Economy Kitchens and Baths’ roots can be traced to Tru-Art Kitchens, which began operation in 1941 under the direction of its founder and President, Martin, and his two brothers. Located in Roselle, New Jersey, Tru-Art Kitchens focused primarily on custom cabinetry for residential customers.

Martin became the sole owner in 1980 and re-incorporated the company as Economy Kitchens. This company maintained its focus on cabinet re-facing, and became highly specialized in exclusive oak re-facing methods. It was during this time that the company began to add key personnel, and in 1986 Jay joined the company as a sales consultant.

In 1994, Jay and Thomas purchased the company and incorporated under Economy Kitchens and Baths. The newly formed company continued to offer superior cabinet re-facing and new kitchens, but also began to focus in other areas such as bath remodeling. Over the next several years the company continued to respond to its customer’s needs, and it was further transformed into one of the region’s most respected full service kitchen and bath remodelers.

On September 18, 1996, Economy Kitchens and Baths moved to its present location in Rahway, New Jersey. With more than 7,500 square feet of building space, Economy Kitchens and Baths boasts one of the largest kitchen and bath showrooms in NJ. Presently we offer design and installation by our own staff of professional installers – NO SUBCONTRACTORS!

He brings many years of drafting and architecture design expertise including 2 college degrees in design & contracting. After 8 years of training to make sure his company would be in good hands “Marty” was ready to retire. At this time Jay brought Tom into the picture and in January 1994 they took over “Economy Kitchens” & re-incorporated under its new name “Economy Kitchens & Baths” to serve their clients better and to expand their abilities. Now after more than 2 decades of service, Jay is once again looking to expand into to consulting field specializing in HOME REDESIGN and ADDITIONS. As an interior design contractor with a heavy real estate background including a Realty license for over 20 years, Jay has recognized the need to “HELP” people layout their new or existing home floor plans from something as simple as moving a doorway to create better flow to rearranging the inside of part or all of the entire house, including additions for kitchens, baths, master suites and aging in place. To date the bulk of jobs Jay has completed have been either repeat or referral customers demanding only the best.
