This is the second time we have used Interiors With Elegance. Very pleased with the workmanship and would use them again. Some of the reasons: they only use epoxy grout, all new items are delivered to the site so the homeowner does not have to, have their own shop so can manufacture cabinets and vanities, most of the employees have worked for the Company many years and you are not restricted to two inch tiles for shower floors. They arrive on time and clean up at the end of each day.
Interiors With Elegance (IWE) was recommended to us by friends who have used them for multiple renovations. We had IWE do some renovations in our kitchen and a complete re-do of our master bath. From our first contact with Wayne Denman we have been very comfortable with everything they do - from the initial site review, work scoping, layout and design, cost estimating, and actual work execution. Lisa was very helpful with design suggestions and material selection. Dave and the rest of the construction crew were extremely attentive to detail and the finish of the work. It was obvious they take pride in their work.
We were out of town while much of the work was being done but we felt secure in leaving the house and work in their hands. We were kept updated with construction reports and photos on a regular basis and we were able to communicate via email and phone whenever there were any questions that needed to be dealt with. We are very pleased with result and we are currently working with IWE on another renovation.
I think there are probably renovation contractors out there who could have completed the work cheaper and possibly even quicker. However, we were not in a hurry to get the work done and we were prepared to pay a small premium for quality work. IWE was excellent.
Interiors completed a bathroom renovation for us about 10 years ago. The job looked great and was only a little over budget. We dealt directly with the owner Darrin. He was a great sales person and came to the job a few times too.
Recently the drywall adjacent to the shower began showing water damage. We called Interiors and were quickly called back by an estimator. When we told the estimator we were having a problem with an old job he asked us to call him next week. We did - several times. No call back - ever. A new contractor tore out the shower and showed us how the water barriers had been conspicuously installed incorrectly. The fabric was too short. It was obviously wrong. The water damage was easily traced back to the bad installation. We are disappointed with the mistake and resulting expense but find inexcusable not even bothering to come to the house to see the issue. As soon as the estimator realized it was not a new job all communication stopped. The past is the past but the current response rates the worst rating.
Dear Private User,

We are completely satisfied with our kitchen renovation by Interiors with Elegance. Darrin helped us with the latest ideas and Wayne made sure everything was done on time and well with great attention to detail. Any time we had a question it was answered promptly. Jason, George and Bill were so pleasant that we were sorry to see them leave!
I hired IWE to do my kitchen because of the numerous positive reviews, and it was one of the best decisions I've made for home improvement. From the knowledge and attention to detail by the designer (Stephanie) to the workmanship of the tradespeople who did everything, they were conscientious of their work and treated it as if they were doing their own kitchens. They definitely know how to keep a tidy workspace. The project manager (Jason) was communicative and came by periodically to make sure everything was going well, and explained in great detail what to expect, with an approximate timeframe. There are numerous positive reviews that attest to their quality of work, and I am pleased to be one of them.
I have recommended IWE to other friends and would absolutely rehire them for future projects to my home!
Working with IWE began with a feeling. Comparing our experience with Darrin and others who came to provide a quote for the renovation, it was clear early on that we would be in good hands. Darrin is extremely personable and provided us with helpful suggestions to make our vision for the kitchen work. The IWE team share a commitment to excellence and have the skills to make this a reality. Attention to detail, quality of workmanship, timely completion of each phase of the Reno, and being responsive to our questions was a consistent experience. My wife and I love the new kitchen and recommend IWE without reservation.
Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to let others know why you chose us Doug. We are glad you love the new kitchen and we look forward to working with you on any future projects you have.
A friend recommended Interiors With Elegance (IWE) to us for our renovation. We feel fortunate to have hired them.
Our project was on budget and largely on schedule. IWE maintained high quality standard and we are very happy with the final product.
IWE showed their capability, passion to the quality and professionalism throughout the planning, material selection and execution of the scope of work.
IWE paid attention not only to the apparent work scope but also to the details such as communication, site preparation and protection and daily cleaning.
It is very impressive that everyone including all the trades workers have been very courteous.
In summary, we are very satisfied with their work and impressed by their team. We would recommend IWE to anyone without hesitation.
Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to working with you in the future,
We hired Interiors With Elegance for the 2nd time (they previously renovated our bathrooms) to do an extensive renovation of our home. They replaced all our flooring with laminate, tile and carpets, replaced all our oak doors, door frames, window frames and baseboards, and painted the entire interior of the house including our oak staircase, railings and spindles. They did an outstanding job. Very professional and skilled staff and sub-trades. On budget and while they spent a little more time than anticipated, the extra time was well worth it as they made sure the end product was truly quality work. Great folks to work with as well -- knowledgeable, helpful, patient, courteous, clean and always wanting to provide great service and advice.They are top-notch in my book, and I would not hesitate to hire them again or recommend them to others.
Thank you for letting others know about your experience working with us again Steven. There are numerous renovation companies in Calgary and we were glad you chose to work with us again, it was a pleasure working with you too & we look forward to working with you on any future projects you have.
