We came upon Fine Finishes by referral, and after meeting with a couple of other designers, decided to proceed with a condo renovation that we had Andrea design and manage. Andrea's aesthetic, eye for detail, and pragmatic approach was evident in that first meeting, where she quickly identified things we could do to bring in more light, make rooms feel more spacious and flow better, while asking lots of questions to uncover what things were most important to us. Core to our project was a new kitchen and replacement of the original hardwood floor throughout the condo, with all the associated electrical, plumbing, plastering and paining that goes with that, and a few other minor upgrades in the rest of the unit. We love the layout and look of our new kitchen. With her design, Andrea opened up our tiny galley kitchen, giving us more storage and work areas, without making any structural changes. She also made paint selection a breeze, which is something I've always struggled with and we love the result in every room. Relying on the contractors and skilled trades recommended by Andrea and managed by Nelson was an important part of the success of this work, as all were highly skilled, reliable, dedicated and could be depended on to deal with anything that arose (our building dates back to the 1930's so renovations always have some unforeseen challenges). We are immensely pleased with the design, quality and workmanship of the skilled trades employed, and our relationship with everyone involved.
- Company Response
Thank you for your review Donna. We are very pleased with the way your renovation turned out. We do have a great team and stand behind everyone of them. They are true professionals and an integral part of our company. The kitchen was truly the biggest transformation. Not sure how you managed all those years and with so little counter space! We worked out creative solutions and came up with a great layout that maximized every inch without changing the foot print. Now, not only do you have more storage and almost double the counter space, the two of you can actually be in the kitchen at the same time cooking together without bumping into each other. All the best, Andrea
