Meet the CEO
I'm Ko'Kila. I'm a single mom, and I love to design.
Kustom Kreationz by Kila was inspired by a need to have trendy home décor, that reflected my personal style while working within my budget.
I was BROKE (a word that I totally despise).
As a single mom, I didn't have much disposable income, but that didn't mean I couldn't have a home that reflected ME!
My children and I lived in a tiny apartment. Our kitchen barely had enough room for us to turn around in, our bathroom had missing tiles on the floor, and our living room had a ratty love seat and a coffee table. We were broke.
But we had each other, and we were happy. And because we were happy, it didn't matter how small our place was or what it looked like on the outside—it was pretty great on the inside.
But then something happened…
I got tired of coming home to drab surround and started to get creative. I knew I needed to make some changes. The first thing that came to mind was the color scheme of my living room. It was "basic" and "boring." But it wasn't going to be that way for long!
I packed up my kids and headed to the library. I was convinced that I was born with the tools I needed to make my apartment look like ME!
After scouring design magazines and the internet, I found exactly what I was looking for. I began pairing different prints and finding thrifted boho-chic pillows and throws, but I needed more. Unfortunately, my landlord strictly prohibited holes in the wall and there was no way for me to get what I wanted!
Then one day, it hit me: light switch covers! They were an untapped market and an amazing way to switch it up without making major changes.
And you know what? People took notice!
They were easy to switch out, made a big impact on how your living space looks without much effort or money spent—and most importantly… they would work in my apartment!
My kids still say they remember when we moved into our new apartment and they saw all the cool things we'd done with it. They especially loved the way we made each light switch cover different. We mixed colors, textures, and patterns... and the best part was that we did it together.
Those were the good old days.
Realizing that other people, in my same situation, could benefit as well, Kustom Kreationz by Kila was born!
We give single moms, renters, and busy homeowners the freedom to design their living spaces to reflect their personalities.
