Design Center

We give you options at our Design Centers

No showroom is truly complete without a robust selection of quality materials and the Thompson Design Centers do not disappoint. Our Design Centers feature a combined 14,000 square feet of indoor showrooms. Our staff is dedicated to bringing you knowledge based service on the most up-to-date masonry and natural stone products available. You will find the largest selection of Natural Stone in Northern California. We carry a vast variety of thin veneer, flagstone, pebbles, basalts and so much more. Not only do the Thompson Design Centers have the largest selection of natural stone but they also host the largest selection of brick in Northern California. You will find recognized brick manufacturers, including Belden Brick, Boral Brick, Old Carolina Brick and many others. For your convenience, we also offer samples of many of our products.

We understand the difficulties and challenges that some of your projects may bring. If your landscape or building project has come to a stand-still, or perhaps you just need a little more inspiration, we have a well-stocked library of inspirational and informative books to help you brainstorm ideas and map out the next steps for your projects. Come see our custom-built kitchens, fireplaces featuring natural stone veneers and full sized building stones for a taste of the endless possibilities available at Thompson Building Materials & Nursery. So if you are looking for your next inspiration, come see us at one of our full service Design Centers in Ripon and Sacramento.
