We were undertaking the renovation of a townhouse on Fairview Slopes, Vancouver. Knowing that the kitchen and bathrooms (3) would be big ticket items, we wanted them to be updated in manner that would suit the modernist multi levelled townhouse and our lifestyle. We wanted perfection and we got it!
We visited Reynolds' Shop in North Vancouver one Saturday afternoon. We met with designer, Stephanie Kantonen. She listened to our needs and wants while pulling samples of cabinet and counter finishes. She was also getting to know us and we her. We spent around 1.5 hours with Stephanie and by the time we left we were convinced that we would look no further. Reynolds and Stephanie Kantonen had our work. No reservations from us. I might add here that we are a very disxerning couple in our late 60s. We knew what we wanted and we knew that Stephanie and Reynolds would deliver.
Stephanie has an impecable sense of design. She was right for the job because she immediately understood the look that we wanted to achieve. Our townhouse was designed in 1983 by the highly accomplished architect, James KM Cheng. Cheng had given us some renovation guidelines to follow. We shared those with Stephanie and even gave her the responsibility of reworking Cheng's signature fireplace. On every occasion we were so impressed by her work. Always meticulous, always commuicative, always on budget and always on time.
Take my advice, go to Reynolds in North Vancouver and you won't have to look further. Reynolds has been in business for 49 years. Owner, Jamie Reynolds, is also very hands on with projects. Very highly recommended ***** 5 stars all of the way.
