Stairs and bedroom

Our staircase, hallway and bedroom all on the second floor badly needed an upgrade as they had not been done in over 30 years. So, my first choice is Fine Finishes, as they have always excelled for us in the past. And this time as well. I was thrilled with the end result, so classy and modern at once!
And the attention to detail was amazing. Andrea and Nelson made sure that everything was done to perfection - and they strongly advocated for us when something was not done quite to their high standards, to make it right! They receive my highest recommendation. I will never go anywhere else. Thank you!

Thank you so much for your review Vanna, as always it was a pleasure working with you. The stairs indeed needed an update , especially since they are the first thing you see when you walk in the front door. The spindles and handrail we chose really compliment the elaborate tile in your foyer. What a stunning entrance! A job well done is always our first priority and we ensure client satisfaction upon completion of the project. Wishing you all the best this holiday season and look forward to your next project. Andrea and Nelson

Fantastic Design and So Thoughtful

Andrea and her team were so helpful with the design of our new home. Andrea gave her advice on furniture for our dining room, TV room, and master bedroom. All the pieces we ordered through her were delivered on time. One item had a small scratch and her team replaced it right away. She worked with the furniture company so that we didn't have to worry about anything. It was a pleasure to work with Andrea and her team.

Thank you for our review C! We had a lot of fun putting it together for you. Contemporary lines and a mix of finishes( hand-scrapped hardwood floors, concrete, glass, iron and marble ) all combined to make it feel warm and inviting. Thanks for allowing us to photograph, can't wait to see it in print :) Andrea

Kitchen

Andrea and her team helped us renovate our kitchen and refresh our main floor. Her trades are fantastic and do impressive work and care about the quality of their work as well. Andrea listens to every idea you have and gets to know you so after a while her suggestions are what you would of picked to begin with. Nothing but impressed with the design, ideas, trades and overall professionalism with everyone from Fine Finishes Design Inc.

Basement renovation

Andrea is a lovely person and designer. She and her staff at Fine Finishes were easy to work with, and we appreciated her interest in our project and her excellent design recommendations.

Thank you for your review. When we are designing "basements" we look at it as an extension of your living space.

We strive to make the process easy for our clients throughout the entire project, from concept to completion, ensuring the design maximizes the space and works for the way you live. The custom built-ins provide tonnes of additional storage and the laundry room is now a bright, functional space. The new office provides a private space for those days you are working from home. The new family room had plenty of seating for everyone to enjoy movie night and video game tournaments. Enjoy your new basement! Andrea

Main floor refresh, bathroom renovation

I contacted Fine Finishes for help with a main floor upgrade. It was time to upgrade the flooring on the main floor and the upstairs. At the same time I wanted to consider how we could better make use of our main floor and our small semi detached home. Andrea came in and quickly helped develop a plan to tackle what was most important to us. We replaced the subfloors and flooring with a material we would never have considered before and love the result. We opened up walls and replaced the main staircase. We replaced the mismatched trim work throughout the house restoring it to the original style. Our tired 90 year old house looks refreshed and contemporary and the family is making better use of the main space. There is more light and sense of larger space. The new front hall storage unit has changed the way we function daily and looks beautiful. I never thought I could have this much flexible storage! The vision for the basement bathroom is elegant and practical and we can't wait to enjoy it.
Fine Finishes held their contractors to a high standards and advocated for us when the execution details needed further attention. Andrea and Nelson have great respect for their clients homes and the impact a renovation has on the homeowners. Andrea's design guidance gave me great confidence in making decisions that will last for years to come and streamlined the entire process. She listened to all of my questions, concerns and considerations and worked to find solutions that suited the needs of my family. At every step I felt that I could count on her to come through as the project required. No detail was too small for her time and attention. Her colour choices, sourcing and ability to bring all the design elements together was spot on, we love the transformation of our home.

Thank you for your review Quinn. It's quite incredible how bright and spacious your home now looks as a result of removing the wall and replacing the stairs . We used 3D modelling to determine the best course of action and furniture placement so that you could see your home as it could be , before any construction was done. We find this works wonderfully as it's often difficult for people to envision the end result. The materials and colours that we chose work seamlessly with elements of the home that were untouched.

Clients are trusting us quite often with your biggest investment and we do not take that lightly. We have been in business over 20 years and have heard horror stories from clients on previous experiences. We take pride in what we do and how we do it - with honesty and integrity.

Wishing you and your family the best this holiday season and the new year. Andrea and Nelson

Replacement of front door & windows

I have used Fine Finishes Design Inc. for several design projects in my home & have always had a great experience, with the results exceeding my expectations. Therefore, recently, when I was considering replacing my front door & windows, my first step was to call Andrea at Fine Finishes & get her involved in the project. I was confident that her knowledge, design expertise & attention to detail, would be invaluable. Once again, she did not disappoint. I am delighted with the choices I have made, with Andrea’s help & guidance. The impact on the curb appeal of my home will be amazing! It is a pleasure doing business with Andrea & her whole team at Fine Finishes Design.

Kitchen Family Room Renovation

We used Andrea of Fine Finishes as part of our renovation team when redesigning our kitchen/family room area. Andrea's professionalism, her knowledge of design, colours and referrals to suppliers for furniture and décor items was amazing. Her ability to translate our likes/dislikes into the final product alleviated a lot of stress and pressure.
I would highly recommend Andrea to anyone considering a remodel - her style, manner of operation and ability to integrate the new design into existing elements of our home were the perfect balance.

Design consult on reno

We sought specific design input from Andrea on a reno we were doing (redoing the basement and the front of the house). She had great ideas and really helped us focus our decision-making without being pushy. I'm looking forward to working with Andrea when we get started on our kitchen!

Hello Tara. Thank you for your review. It was great working with you to maximize the layout and function of the basement which is crucial in smaller homes. The mudroom addition to the front of your home added loads of curb appeal with the bonus of storage. Many people have never used a designer before and don't know what to expect. Every designer is different and has their own working style. My goal is to advise on various options, educate pros and cons, taking your personal style into account, and helping make the decision process and renovation smoother. We are looking forward to working with you on your kitchen. Have a great summer! Andrea

Design Consultation - Staircase remodel

Andrea was a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend her services. This was my first time working with a designer so I was a bit nervous about what to expect. Andrea's expert advice on colours, materials, resources, and her attention to detail made me realize the benefits of hiring a professional at the start of any project.
Thank you Andrea! Look forward to working with you again.
