About Us

About Modernize

Modernize is run by the husband and wife team of Ben & Susan Kavanagh. We have over twenty years experience in the tile, bathroom and wood flooring industry and have recently expanded into the home insulation markets. We have different roles within the business, Ben looks after the day to day running of the business, while Susan runs a tight ship in the administration side of things, monitors our website and replies to customer queries.

The concept of Modernize is a little different to the other showroom/website driven companies within our sector. Firstly, our customer is ‘King’. We will endeavour at every stage of our client dealings to maintain a superior level of customer service.

Our main suppliers, Sonas Bathrooms, RT Large & Sons, and Canadia Flooring, have afforded Modernize the unique opportunity to avail of their amazing showrooms to meet with our customers. This gives our customers the added advantage of viewing thousands of products, brilliantly displayed, plus the confidence in the knowledge that our suppliers are based in Ireland and all have excellent manufacturers’ guarantees, product consistency and aftersales service.

Our Tile collection is sourced from leading Spanish and Italian manufacturers and our Natural Stone ranges are from some of the finest quarries in Germany and Spain.

Our interactive business model, where clients can select products from our website, then arrange for us to call to their homes with samples of the products to check for suitability, measure for fitting and also for clients to be certain of their choice prior to placing an order, separates us from the ‘click & collect’ business idea and gives Modernize a more personal focus with our clients.

Ultimately, we want our customers to be happy with their choice to do business with us, to recommend Modernize to their family and friends, to enjoy our customer orientated approach, and to be proud of the new look in their homes.

If you require more information on any of our products or services please do not hesitate to call our friendly team on 00353 85 866 2740 or email info@modernize.ie.

Client Testimonials

‘We contacted Modernize about a bathroom makeover and a wooden floor for our living room. Ben immediately put us at ease and we were delighted with his ideas and pleasant manner. We arranged to meet Ben at the Sonas Bathrooms and Canadia Flooring showrooms where we selected the items for our project. We got great prices and the advice and service from Modernize was exceptional. We would highly recommend Modernize.’
