Perfection IS NOT the standard!

I have a small 10' galley style kitchen. The total renovation consisted of 5 upper cabinets and 4 lower cabinets. Not a big job. The reason I went with Aya was that they did it all. Painting, tear-out, install and plumbing.
It is hard to find a contractor to take on such a small project.
The cabinets are plain white thermafoil. Nothing fancy, easy to wipe down.
When they did the tear out they didn't bring garbage bags, brooms, vacuums, etc. The painter used my upstairs bathroom to clean his brushes even though I asked him not to. The installers arrived without the drawings. I printed them off for them.

The installers didn't have a vacuum so they didn't clean out the construction debris from the drilling. It is quite difficult to clean out a base cabinet after they have installed the drawers.They caulked one cabinet to the window frame but not the other one. I get it, things get missed. It is up to the project manager/salesman to find these errors/omissions and correct them.

I am still cleaning paint off my kitchen floor, toiletries in the bathroom and any other surface you could get paint on.

95% of the work is good. It is that last 5% that is disappointing. Apparently you should expect flaws and damage on a new install and live with it. The project manager didn't even look for deficiencies. When I pointed them out I was "too picky". Why on earth would I expect perfect?
The salesman was by today to give a "fix up" paint pen. Yep, it is up to me to fix all the dings, dents and flaws with a little paint pen.

I don't know if the Aya standard, but if it is stay away.

New installs should be flaw less. There shouldn't be dings and chips.

Kitchen Renovation

We took possession of a townhouse in Oakville that had a tired kitchen and decided to replace it. We visited 4 companies and picked AYA Kitchens because they did the best job in convincing us they could make us a kitchen of our dreams within our budget. We worked with Lucia Basnakova throughout and she told us of so many ideas and tricks and ways to do things we never would have thought of. It has made a huge difference and we love our new kitchen. The quality of materials, the excellence in the workmanship and attention to all the little details and the superb, tireless work of the installer simply blew us away. We heartily and truly recommend AYA . You won't be disappointed!

New Custom Kitchen

Their showroom in Mississauga helped make the design process much easier. Their installers always came when scheduled, and any missing or defective areas were changed out afterwards. We had a great experience overal, and ended up with exactly what we wanted. I would highly recommend them!!

New Kitchen

Very satisfied with my new kitchen, which Kirth Manku help me to design.
Kirth gave me excellent ideas for my new kitchen, including my 9ft. long kitchen island. she knew I wanted a big island as I like to cook and she came up with an excellent design. She helped me to choose the right colours for my cabinets and the island.
Thank you also to the Aya kitchen installer. He did an excellent job installing my cabinets and cupboards. job very well done.

Amazing Kitchen Design!

It is not often that I work with a professional who has the same passion for design. Joanne H. from the design team at Aya Kitchens & Baths not only designed an exceptional kitchen for my client, she became my partner as we pushed the boundaries of design within our budget to come up with a kitchen that was the centerpiece of this modern home. Her energy was contagious as she took my rather raw sketches, many of them created in situ, and created fully realized renderings with easy to visualize samples. Together, we were able to present a vision of a kitchen that not only reflects the needs of my client, but that creates a sophisticated and timeless aesthetic that is also satisfying to me as a designer. Designing this kitchen was a pleasure and I would insist that you ask for Joanne H. at Aya Kitchens & Bath.

Kitchen Renovation

Joanne Hamway was highly recommended to us an excellent kitchen designer by a good friend. He was absolutely right.
Joanne goes the extra distance to provide customer service, both figurately and literally. She creates the confidence that you are doing business with a person who is interested in providing the best.
She has an incredible capacity for detail. No item is too small for her attention.
Joanne has a great imagination and creativity. She continually comes up with ideas and suggestions that we found really contributed to the end product.
This is not a paid commercial. She is that good! Six stars out of five.

Kitchen Renovations with Joanne Hamaway

To begin with Aya has an amazing showroom that was inspiring and exciting to look through. We are so fortunate that a friend recommended Joanne Hamaway to help us design our kitchen. She was so personable, knowledgeable and very professional. She wanted to make sure that she understood our vision and did everything she could to ensure we were on the same page. She answered all of our questions by email or phone very promptly and never hesitated to make changes if needed, to the original drawings. It has been a pleasure to work with her and we would highly recommend her and already have to anyone that will listen, as it isn’t always easy to find someone that puts your vision front and centre and strives for your satisfaction.

Amazing experience all the way around!

Our experience with Aya was fabulous from the moment we entered the Mississauga showroom.

This was our first time kitchen renovation, and we were lucky enough to have Joanne Hamaway as our kitchen designer. Joanne guided us through each and every step of the process, and listened attentively to our needs, wants and budget. We were surprised that the kitchen of our dreams could be so reasonably priced.

The installers were very professional and used their creativity and expertise to make some last-minute changes that were required on the day of install.

We are so proud of how beautiful and functional our kitchen is, and we continue to receive compliments from all our friends and family who visit our home.

Although it has been two years since the kitchen install (and this review is long overdue), we are still as happy with the quality and appearance of our kitchen as the day we moved in! We have recommended Aya to a number of people, and will continue to do so!

Keep up the great work, and a big thank you to all involved!

Thanks Lucia Basnakova for our Efficient and Beautiful AyA Kitchen!!!

So much storage in our new and efficient AyA kitchen, we have a drawer dedicated to all our potato chips and popcorn snacks!

We are very pleased and excited to have AyA kitchen installed in our home. This was one of the best renovation decisions we have ever made! We chose AyA Kitchen, because they manufacture and install their own product. If we are spending this much money, then the best choice is the personal service offered by AyA Kitchen. Lucia Basnakova designed an efficient kitchen to replace an old worn down kitchen. An expert, Mathew Murphy, installed our kitchen and an inspector came to review the work. All our questions answered and any adjustments were immediately addressed. This gave us a renovation peace of mind.

Lucia Basnakova, our kitchen designer, did a great job to ensure that we have abundant storage. Large drawers allow pots and small appliances to be stored out of sight. She managed to install a handy four level basket storage system in place of a “lazy-susan”. This is our favourite feature in the kitchen! Lucia applied great use of space, so that the toaster and slow cooker do not have to be moved when in use. We love the under cabinet lights and the overall look of the kitchen

We are very happy to have our sink centred nicely to the kitchen window. Lucia designed the kitchen to accommodate the whole family and have a smooth flow with our dining room. We have generous counter tops. The two floating shelves give an airy and open feel to the kitchen. We love this feature too!

Lucia and the entire AyA Kitchen team were very helpful from design to completion. The help went beyond the kitchen design. We even received guidance in the floor colour selection, so it would work nicely with the new kitchen cabinets.

We recommend AyA Kitchen, because they are knowledgeable and give great results. Thanks Lucia and AyA Kitchen team!!!

Cheers!
Belinda

Kitchen Renovation

Kirth is very professional in dealing with her customers. She is very knowledgeable and detailed oriented. Kirth responds to queries in a timely fashion. She made sure we obtained the specs for our new appliances and how they would be incorporated in our newly designed kitchen. We were so impressed in dealing with Kirth during our renovations to our 30 year old kitchen that we recommended her to our daughter and son-in-law, who are working with her at the present time.
It was a pleasure dealing with Kirth. We highly recommend her to others.
