Office Renovation

We are a Toronto-based charity and hired Lee based on the recommendations of one our board members who had him work on their kitchen.

He did a great job on our kitchen, installing it on time (even though IKEA's delivery was a disaster) and we keep getting compliments!

Thanks Lee!

Dream Kitchen Installation

Lee built our dream kitchen for us. I would call myself a demanding client. And Lee delivered on everything we expected and more. He is highly skilled, does excellent work, has a solid work ethic... and is an absolute delight to work with.

More specifically - in no particular order:

-He is very meticulous in his measurements, installation and finishings.

-He is extremely knowledgeable in the IKEA product - which means that he'll know exactly what you will and won't need relative to the innumerable little fittings, adjustment or customizations that are required - or that you may want - to install your kitchen properly and beautifully. These may or may not be part of the order you placed. Because Lee worked in the kitchen area of IKEA before going off on his own... he knows the ropes and what is possible.

-He is flexible, helpful and cooperative in working with the other trades that are involved in installing a kitchen... in our case, electricians, plumbers, the granite installers, etc.

-He is open and creative in working with you to customize the installation in varying ways. There were a number of 'non-standard' concepts we wanted to include. We collaborated on ideas and possibilities.. and Lee just always figured out a way to make them happen. And with the same precision and quality that he did with all of the installation.

-He is calm and centered, pretty much unflappable - no matter what kind of chaos is happening - important to us because we were doing a full renovation of our entire house.. so there was lots happening all the time.

-He is reliable, keeps his promises, and works conscientiously to achieve his client's needs and expectations.

In summary, I can highly recommend Lee to you.

Ikea kitchen installation

LS Solutions did such a good job, I called them back to install my next kitchen and will call them again for the next one. They are efficient, well-priced and a pleasure to work with.

Hint ( and I learned this the hard way):
If you're putting in an Ikea kitchen, it's worth calling in Lee Sanchez before you buy, he gives great advice which can save you money and avoid future aggravation or time-consuming return visits to Ikea.

Kitchen renovation

Lee did what he said he would do - he and his team arrived when they said they would arrive and completed the job on schedule. The job was done very well. Lee worked with us to plan what would be suitable. We are very happy with the results and would recommend Lee to others.

First Review


kitchen installation

Lee installed my Ikea countertop and cupboards, including cutting to fit nonstandard spaces, and did a fabulous job. He has good eye for detail and offered excellent design suggestions. He showed up when he said he would, and always left the workspace clean and tidy at the end of the day. He was punctual, polite, and friendly, and dealt with any unexpected issues that came up calmly and helpfully. I would definitely use his services again and recommend him wholeheartedly.

Ikea Kitchen Cabinet Installation

Very professional from beginning to finish!

We have a 140 year old victorian with some challenging walls and we also had some custom features we desired that others weren't sure how to deal with.

Lee came in with the right tools and knowledge to complete our kitchen in a very reasonable amount of time with very impressive results. The custom work that we required was done far beyond our expectations and the rest of his work was impeccable! In addition to the above successes, Lee also installed our double oven flawlessly!

Lee was also excellent to communicate with throughout - he was very professional, had great suggestions, and received feedback very well to make sure we were happy clients. In the end he left us beaming with joy at the beautiful kitchen he installed for us.

We have a bar installation in another area of the house and we are for sure going with Lee, Ikea Kitchen Specialist, to get this done.

Kitchen Installation

I have used Lee's services twice already for 2 kitchens and will continue to recommend him to my clients. Lee is very easy to work with, and the quality of his work is excellent. He shows up when he tells you he will, finishes the work on time, and payment is as per original quote.
