Sandusky Home Interiors was founded by Milton Kerr.
Milton Kerr founded Sandusky Home Interiors in 1947 with a commitment to providing the most affordable and quality flooring and window covering services in the area. Originally on Perkins Avenue, the business moved after several years to Water Street in historical downtown Sandusky.
Ed Opfer began his career at Sandusky Home Interiors.
Ed Opfer was eager to start working and wanted to become a carpenter. He met Milton Kerr, original owner of Sandusky Home Interiors, and in January 1978, Ed began his new career at Sandusky Home Interiors.

Ed Opfer became the new owner of Sandusky Home Interiors.
In 1988, Ed Opfer bought the company from Milton Kerr after many years of working for him. A few years after acquiring the business, Ed moved the store to its current location at 2124 Cleveland Road. There it has grown to suit the Sandusky area’s needs. With so many area businesses coming and going over the last half-century, Sandusky Home Interiors has built strong relationships with local residents due to its perseverance and reliable quality service.

We offer services beyond the Sandusky area. We also cater to commercial needs, not just residential. In the past we have offered products such as wallpaper, lighting, and furniture. We now focus our efforts on all window or floor coverings.
