Condominium renovation

We’ve mobility issues. Barbara took charge of project from soup to nuts...
Major scopes are to ensure condo is fully accessible to include a roll in shower, and removal of all floor transitions where they may exist.
Further, the scopes included converting a 3 bedroom with den suite, into a more open concept 2 bedroom with the kitchen now open to a great room ( den + converted bedroom).
Great job, will not hesitate to work with Barbara again!

Living room and kitchen design consultation

I wish I could give 11 stars!!! My name is Erin. My mom has a HomeStars account and put out a notice for me and my husband looking for a designer for our first house. When this company responded, I was very impressed with the profile and decided to give them a try. It ended up being a great decision!

Barbara is fantastic to work with. She gave excellent ideas that I hadn't thought of to help add storage to our small kitchen. She also gave lots ideas on designing our living room, both economical and mid to high end options. This was my first time working with a house designer but she was very friendly and listened to my ideas and suggested how to execute or how to improve upon them.

It was a great first experience and likely won't be our last. VERY highly recommended.

Basement floor plan

Barbara was extremely professional and has a clear communication style. She was sure to explore our needs and wants individually (both mine and my husband's), which I thought was an excellent way to ensure that everyone has a voice. Barbara was able to get us started on our floor plan by providing us with a to-scale drawing on the same day as her visit, which was immensely helpful as we were about to 'break ground' so to speak.

Comfortable, Warm and Friendly

We were looking for a designer who had a contemporary look, but would make the place comfortable. For us, this apartment is a get away and we wanted it to be comfortable, warm and friendly.

Impressed!

Barbara arrived at my house on time. She was pleasant and professional. Barbara took the time before our face-to-face to get to know me and what I was hoping to achieve with the look and feel of my house. We spoke again about my hopes when we met which was helpful as our telephone conversation spurred me to really think about what I wanted. I was impressed with how she was able to give me Ideas for my house when she had never seen it. Barbara certainly has great skill in visualizing the potential of a space.

Kitchen and Master Bedroom Consultation

Barbara came into a home visit with us on very short notice and made great use of the time to help us visualize how we could utilize the spaces to our specific requirements. Barbara was professional, friendly and confident. She spoke up with ideas that we had not considered and we considered our time with her very worthwhile.

A Big Help

2 hrs was included from our contractor. I don't know the cost.

Barbara was extremely helpful. She spent 2 hrs with us at a Tile Store. She helped us coordinate tile for floors, walls and a back splash. She provided guidance for wall colours and was very respectful of our vision and our budget .

Holiday decorating made easy

Nikka Design was hired to decorate a large holiday tree. Barbara’s professional approach to the project was very impressive. She prepared a quote that covered the complete scope, including sourcing, purchasing, delivery, the installation of lights and ornaments. She even included the option of a follow-up visit the first week of January to tear it all down and pack and label the decorations in storage bins. All timelines were met, the tree looked fabulous and Barbara was a delight to work with.
