Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why should I hire you for my IKEA kitchen when I can use their online planning tool for free?

A: For many people, the planning tool is frustrating and overwhelming. But the main reason is that I use my design know-how to make the very most of what IKEA has to offer, and put the whole project together for you with 2D and 3D views, finishes selection. Hiring professional help can be the difference between an obviously ‘out-of-the-box’ kitchen, and one that looks like a custom kitchen out of a magazine.

Q: How long does it take you to create a design if I sign up for the ‘first course’ (Concept Design) package for my kitchen or bathroom?

A: The initial turn-around time for the first concept design phase is two weeks from the time that we met. The total time for a final design package depends on the size of the project and how many revisions are required.

Q: Do you work outside of Toronto?

A: Yes, however an additional travel fee will apply for projects outside Toronto.

Q: Do you only do kitchens and bathrooms?

A: I specialize in kitchens and bathrooms, however, if the kitchen is part of an open concept main floor, I would take the whole main floor into consideration. Also should you require any additional space planning or design done for the rest of your home, ket’s discuss it. If I can’t do the work for you, I’ll direct you to a great designer in my network who specializes in what you want.

Q: Do you assist with the face lift of existing kitchens? 

A: Yes I do! Please see the ‘ Palate Cleanser’ package on my services page for more information.

Q: Do you offer a free consultation? 

A: Yes, I offer a free consultation over the phone. This consultation will allow you to ask additional questions, tell me about your project and we can discuss which of my packages might be suitable to you.

Q: Can you come and see our home before we commit to a design package?

A: I offer an initial three-hour in-home consultation (The ‘Appetizer‘). The cost of this session is $350 which is credited back to you if you purchase an additional package from there. Full details can be found here.
