Knowledgeable and nice

A family owned business directly across from a big box store lasting this long has got to be a good sign!

We wanted to repaint all our interior rooms, and Tasha was fantastic.
Never tried to up sell, never rushed us to make decisions, and gave us lots of tips about choosing colours (and what to think about).

Reasonable prices for BM paints- would strongly recommend Cooke's.

Repainting Basement

My wife and I were repainting our basement walls & kitchen cupboards. We had a heck of a time properly re-working the cupboards since they were finished plywood, but with the help of Tom & all the employees at Cook's paints, we solved the problem, and learned some great tips! You can tell they are dedicated to customer service in there! Quite the contrary from the big box stores. We will definitely return for all our painting needs!

Wallpapering

I consulted with Tasha at Cook's Wallpaper & Paints on the danforth about ordering and hanging wallpaper in my front entrance. Even though they did not have what I was looking for in their numerous books she called around and found it for me and ordered it from the UK! She took me, a novice at hanging wallpaper through the whole process step-by-step (and was very patient while I made notes) and she answered all of my many thousands of questions. Not only was she very knowledgable but she also offered to come and assist me after work if I ran into any problems, which took my anxiety level down so much and made me much more relaxed about the whole process. I would recommend Cook's Wallpaper & Paint to anyone! Thank you again Tasha!

purchase of paint and seeking advice

We love cooks paint on Danforth. We can walk in knowing nothing about the task that we are about to undertake, and walk out with the knowledge and skill to complete the job.
Painting seems like a simple task upfront, but I love the gentle prompting questions of the staff as they help you select exactly the paint that will work for the job.
My 16 year old son just had his first "painting his room' experience, and they were awesome with him. He went up on his own, chose some outrageous colours, had them mix glossy and flat and purchased tape and brushes etc. They were thoughtful and supportive... except that I think that they could have steered him out of the lime green, royal blue, red colour scheme!! :)

Aww!! I remember your son coming in, and the card you sent us after .. I'm sure his tastes have changed now that he's a little older, and has moms advice ;)

Been using Cooks for years

I've been using Cook's for all my paint needs because of the knowledgeable staff and good advice. Only once did I encounter someone there who was less than pleasant & had the wrong information to boot, and one of the regulars immediately rushed from the back to give me the correct information.

paint and colour selection for home reno

Tom is the owner of Cook's Paint on the Danforth. He is honest, informative and friendly. He always provides goood advice and never forgets a face. Also, there is always a plate of cookies to nibble on while you wait for your paint to be mixed.
