Design consultation

My experience with Fine Finishes Design Inc. has been nothing short of excellent. I have used Andrea's services before, around 5 years ago, to choose paint colours and I was very happy with what she recommended for my children's rooms back then. I did not hesistate to call her again as we just purchased a new house and I wanted to change the paint colours. Andrea comes ultra-prepared with her suitcase on wheels filled with paint colour swatches, and she is so organized! She gives you paint samples right then and there on a page with the colour names on it, so it's easy to keep track of everything in the folder she gives you. She recommended colours with certain undertones and steered me away from others, depending on the light in the room, colour of the flooring, furniture, etc. She also helped me choose lighting and I am so glad I had her help; I avoided mistakes that would have been very costly! Andrea's choices were very wise and her expertise was evident in all the amazing advice that she gave. We ran out of time at the house for our buyer's visit and she met me afterwards at a coffee shop to continue the meeting to ensure we covered everything. She was prompt in returning calls, punctual, very professional, and so pleasant and easy to get along with! I am very grateful for her help and will be calling her again after we move to have her assist me in placing art work, etc. in our new home. I won't hesitate to call her again in future for any design advice I may need.

Hello Nicole. Thank you for your review! It was a pleasure working with you again. It is so nice to see repeat customers as they go through changes in life, with new family members and new homes. To be a part of it, helping make changes that will work for the way they live and reflect who they are as a family, is a real privilege. And for this I thank you. All the best, Andrea

Living Room Design Refurbish and Upper Floor Furniture and Decor Upgrades

I contacted Andrea of Fine Finishes Design Inc. for assistance with some furniture and decorating upgrades for our living room as well as some decor recommendations and planning for the dining room, front hall and master bedroom.

Her initial consult and site inspection of our home was comprehensive and quite complete. She dedicated a total of four hours plus travel for the process - a commitment of time that was greatly appreciated.

Andrea initiated a discussion of our budget from the beginning of the consult and as the site inspection continued, made excellent suggestions for improving several rooms in the house - all of which were practical and within our budget.

I found that Andrea has a great ability to connect with her clients and to quickly develop an excellent rapport with them. Her knowledge, experience, and network backup of proven, reliable trades professionals is another asset to her design operation that I personally appreciated.

Unfortunately, our work together abruptly ended with the complication of my illness and we were not able to progress further with the project.

I would heartily recommend Andrea to anyone seeking professional interior design services. Her professional approach, creativity, and experience are impressive! I extend my thanks for the work she did for us and wish her all the best for the future!

Main floor renovations

This summer, we renovated the main floor of our home. I definitely could not have done this without Andrea's help. She is professional and responds immediately to any questions, comments or concerns. Andrea and Nelson (the project manager), were always honest, reliable, hard-working and a pleasure to deal with. Every promise they made was kept, and we were amazed at their attention to every single detail. I cannot say enough good things about them. We are so pleased with how everything turned it. The final product exceeded our expectations - for example, the wainscotting was not done in a typical way - it actually looks like a piece of art, and guests are amazed at the workmanship. We will definitely use their services when we are ready to do some renovations upstairs. Thanks again to Andrea and her team! I've never been so excited to cook and clean my kitchen!

Thank you for your review Daphne. Our team works together to ensure the best possible results. It has been quite a transformation! Adding the lighted, glass upper cabinets to your existing kitchen and painting everything white gave it new life. New quartz counter and backsplash tied it all together. I agree, beautiful kitchen does make cooking more fun!

By using the same flooring throughout the main floor (with the exception of the foyer, powder room and laundry room) it feels much larger and unified.

The wallpaper we installed in the powder room along with the floating vanity looks absolutely gorgeous! And of course we can't forget the wainscoting. Taking the time to lay entire out the plan before hand ensured the best results. The colours we selected for the walls work perfectly with everything even your existing furniture.

It was a pleasure working with you and look forward to the next project with you.

Cheers, Andrea

Kitchen & Condo Renovation

We came upon Fine Finishes by referral, and after meeting with a couple of other designers, decided to proceed with a condo renovation that we had Andrea design and manage. Andrea's aesthetic, eye for detail, and pragmatic approach was evident in that first meeting, where she quickly identified things we could do to bring in more light, make rooms feel more spacious and flow better, while asking lots of questions to uncover what things were most important to us. Core to our project was a new kitchen and replacement of the original hardwood floor throughout the condo, with all the associated electrical, plumbing, plastering and paining that goes with that, and a few other minor upgrades in the rest of the unit. We love the layout and look of our new kitchen. With her design, Andrea opened up our tiny galley kitchen, giving us more storage and work areas, without making any structural changes. She also made paint selection a breeze, which is something I've always struggled with and we love the result in every room. Relying on the contractors and skilled trades recommended by Andrea and managed by Nelson was an important part of the success of this work, as all were highly skilled, reliable, dedicated and could be depended on to deal with anything that arose (our building dates back to the 1930's so renovations always have some unforeseen challenges). We are immensely pleased with the design, quality and workmanship of the skilled trades employed, and our relationship with everyone involved.

Thank you for your review Donna. We are very pleased with the way your renovation turned out. We do have a great team and stand behind everyone of them. They are true professionals and an integral part of our company. The kitchen was truly the biggest transformation. Not sure how you managed all those years and with so little counter space! We worked out creative solutions and came up with a great layout that maximized every inch without changing the foot print. Now, not only do you have more storage and almost double the counter space, the two of you can actually be in the kitchen at the same time cooking together without bumping into each other. All the best, Andrea

Interior design

Andrea was amazing and outstanding! She started the project before the renovation and helped us to decide almost everything, space changing, kitchen cabinetry/countertop, tiles, floor, paining, furniture and its placement, doors, handles.... She cares about everything no matter how tiny it is. She is professional, easy to reach, good at communication and very patient.
What's more impressive is that she designed the our home which suits us the best! She even thought about the hanger rack for our two kids!
Now we've been living at our new home for 3 weeks, our kids are happy with cleaning up their stuff because it's easy for them to do. Meanwhile, we realize that everything we think is beautiful, useful and reasonable is suggested by Andrea!
We are so lucky to meet her and appreciate her for all the useful advises which make our home cozy, gorgeous and functional.

Kitchen Renovation

We engaged Fine Finishes to handle all aspects of our kitchen renovation with the exception of the cabinetry. The project finished on time and on budget. In particular, their project management went very smoothly. The few "wrinkles" that arose were handled promptly and well. We would gladly recommend them to others, and we will be using them for future projects.

Thank you so much for your review, it was a pleasure working with you once again. What a transformation! Though the footprint remained relatively the same, through the use of colour and materials we were able to make it appear much more spacious. We are looking forward to the next phase. Andrea

Colour Consultant

I'm in the process of painting both the exterior and interior of my home. Andrea, the owner, came to my house and we went through each room. She made some excellent colour suggestions which I fully intend to implement. She was very professional and patient. I also appreciated her honesty ... when I suggested something she didn't think would work, she told me. I would be happy to recommend Andrea as a colour consultant to my friends.

House decorating

Provided guidance and recommendations related to selection and purchase of furniture, pictures, drapery and carpets for a 2 bedroom house condo unit in Toronto. There was also some custom cabinetry required which Andrea had a really great source.

This project started with very little existing furniture so started pretty much from a clean slate. Andrea helped guide me in selecting proper colours and furniture styles considering the existing room features and my lifestyle. I’m very pleased with the result.

Interior House Painting

Andrea is a true consummate professional with a keen eye for detail, creativity, colour and design. Andrea's commitment and dedication to her clients, and to her profession, are outstanding. She is very patient, kind and thorough. Andrea listens to what her clients are envisioning for their home and always explains what she is recommending and why... the rationale to her suggestions. Even though every room has now been painted in different colours, there is lovely flow, symmetry and balance throughout our entire home. Each of our rooms flows into the next.
Andrea is truly a gift to the interior design and colour world.

Thank you so much for your lovely review Donna! You are very kind. I believe that good design should be a reflection of who you are as a family and work for the way you live. Every client is different, we listen to your likes and dislikes coming up with design solutions that are uniquely you.

Condo turn key design package

Andrea and her team were outstanding. Within 30 days of moving in it felt like home. She listened, thoughtfully provided her expertise and garnered all the resources to bring together a beautiful home that I love and reflects me. It was fun and relatively speaking effortless.
I am just thrilled and so grateful for her advice, fabulous taste, and project skills. The best part she was an absolute pleasure to partner with.

Thank you for your review Barb! Your condo had great bones and quite a unique layout. It was indeed a tight time line but with careful planning and scheduling of the trades we were able to have your condo move in ready. It has truly turned out fabulous. We were thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with you. All the best, Andrea
