Kitchen Design Review

We didn't think we had the budget for a designer but we kept second guessing ourselves on so many details. We chose Andrea from Fine Finishes for a 2 hour consultation. To make this cost effective we had a spreadsheet of questions for Andrea. She looked at our overall concept and made some initial suggestions based on that. As we went through our checklist we got more specific I.e. paint colours, flooring, trim choices, tile. We had never considered headers for our windows and doors but it looks fantastic .

Bottom line, Andrea gave us the direction and confidence to proceed- we are not done but know the end result will be outstanding thanks to her collaborative approach and deep knowledge of design.

We'll use her services as we move to our next project.

Condo Renovations

We called Andrea as soon as we moved into our condo in Fall 2022. She asked real questions, listened to our answers carefully and learned about our taste and preferences. She clearly got us; Andrea developed detailed plans, and spent plenty of time reviewing these plans with us.

Her trades people were definitely the A team (especially Junior her millwright and carpenter). She and Junior designed (and Junior built and installed) beautiful kitchen cabinets that matched the existing design perfectly, redesigned and built out the spare bedroom/office, and
repurposed our master closets and designed and installed a terrific built in storage unit.

She guided us in the selection of paint colours, furniture placement, decor and carpet layout and managed us through installation. Andrea was on top of everything and in regular communication with us. There were no surprises in the billings which were clear, straightforward and professionally handled.

Thank you so much Fine Finishes; we highly recommend Andrea and her entire team!!

Post Renovation Decor

I have now worked with Andrea for over 12 years. Most recently, we worked with her to decorate our home after a large renovation. Andrea helped us pick out furniture, rugs, artwork and accessories and she did an excellent job ensuring it all tied together the way we discussed. Working with Andrea is very easy. She is extremely responsive and follows through with every detail, which saved me so much time and took away my stress. I look forward to our next project!

Thank you for your review. It's hard to believe it has been that long already. I remember you as newlyweds in your first condo, now two homes and 3 kids and a dog later we are still having fun adding custom furniture, art and finishing touches to your forever home. We work with you to create spaces that inviting, easy to care for and reflect your personality. We can't wait to work with you again. Cheers, Andrea

Custom Couch

We were in the market for a new couch. Something that would transform our space. Andrea met with us at the International Design Centre where we tested couches, looked at fabric samples, discussed our space and our wants. When we finally settled on our couch choice, Andrea & her team arranged the ordering of the custom fabric we choose, talked us through choosing a pattern for our throw pillows and arranged for the delivery. They monitored the progress from the build to the delivery and when we were unable to be there on the delivery date Andrea herself was there to ensure everything was perfect! We love our couch it's a game changer. Without Andrea & the Fine Finishes team we probably would have a settled on a generic couch from a big box store that wouldn't do our space or our needs justice and would require replacing in a few years. Thank you!

Thanks for your review Dominic. It was a pleasure working with you! When we source furniture for our clients we go directly to the manufacturers where we can get the exactly what you need for the space and make the most of your budget. We can adjust cushion density, length, legs you name it! We even select and supply the fabric for you, which we tested by spilling red wine to ensure that it will look just as good 10 years from now as the day it was delivered.

Whole House Reno-incl Kitchen, 2 bathrooms & everything in between

Andrea and her team at Fine Finishes Design are truly caring professionals. This renovation has been such a dream. Andrea and I connected in February 2022, and knew then she was The One because she was so genuine and enthusiastic. And since then she has been attentive, thoughtful and has transformed our home from builder grade to beautiful and personalized. She is respectful of the budget, has managed all the little hiccups with the trades and has carefully incorporated everything we love and nothing we dont into the amazing design. The renovation formally started in October 2022 and has steadily progressed on time since then. This has been the most stress-free, organized, stylish renovation I have ever done. If you are thinking about a renovation but dont know where to start, contact Andrea and she will take care of everything. She is truly a wonderful and trustworthy designer and I am so happy I met her!

Thank you so much for your review Kate! It has been great working with you, taking the builders home you bought as newlyweds to your forever home, taking in the needs of everyone in your family, new puppy included. The design is where we dream and put down things on paper. Bringing those dreams and making them into reality is the best part! No renovation is without it's challenges, it's expected and how you deal with them says a lot about a company. It has been an honour to work with you on your home. Andrea and the FFDI Team

Major Home Renovation

The Fine Finishes Design Inc. team did a fantastic job modernizing our home to get ready to sell. With this excellent work, our house sold within 5 days and well over asking. The work included: replacing all the flooring on the main level and all of the upper level excluding the washrooms upstairs, refinishing the spiral staircase to match the new wood flooring, replacing all the counter tops in the kitchen and washrooms, replacing all lighting and electrical fixtures, painting the entire house, replacing all appliances and much much more. All the trades worked very efficiently and delivered an extremely high quality product. We highly recommend The Fine Finishes Design Inc. team as they take great pride in the work that is done.

Main floor reno

I had hesitated to engage a contractor to do my Reno because I had been worried about all the different aspects it would entail. Walls, electrical, plumbing, floors, cupboards and all the small finishes. I asked Andrea to help me with my envisioning of what the final product would look like (colours and style) while thinking my Reno was small time compared to some of the things I’ve seen on their site. When she told me that no job was too small and that they would be able to not only manage the trades but give me a 3D walk through before I even committed to the whole thing, I was excited. What really made the experience satisfying was that every person who came through the door to my home was not only a highly skilled professional, they were also all really good people. From budget management to the simple explanation of the differences in grey, everything was done with excellence in mind. Andrea clearly loves what she does and her team do a wonderful job meeting your needs financially as well as designing the solution to meet your lifestyle. I am looking forward to working with them again and will mention them to anyone looking to have things done well inside their home!

New build interior finishes.

We are having a new home built and I was overwhelmed with the thought of choosing the interior finishes. Knowing that this would be our forever home, we wanted it to be perfect for us, but also something that later in life when we do sell would look just as appealing to someone else. Andrea helped us create spaces that worked well together and combined function and beauty. Andrea is exceptionally knowledgeable and explained costs and benefits for each aspect of the design. I can't wait to see how it all comes together. I would highly recommend Fine Finishes to anyone who is thinking about upgrading or redesigning a space.

Thanks for your review Lori! This has got to be the most exciting and yet stressful time for homeowners of a new build. Having the opportunity to personalise your new home to reflect your style and personality is wonderful, but to have to make all those choices at once can be daunting. We methodically went from room to room, ensuring that the selections flowed throughout your home and would give you the timeless look you desired for your forever home. All the best, Andrea
