Kitchen renovation; living room/dining room/hallway updating

Tango Design Studio was the first place - of many - that I visited, after hours of online research and friend's recommendations. Dena met with us and seemed to get exactly what we were looking for - even though i only brought with me a few photos on my phone, rough ideas of what I was looking for (Scandinavian vs. modern?!) (and a rough sketch we did with her at the meeting). After meeting with other designers and kitchen outfitters, nobody was able to match Dena's vision for our reno - which made choosing Dena and Tango Design Studio such a relief - due diligence brought us back to our first designer we met!
The ability to be able to choose and design the cabinetry on site, to choose fixtures, view different slabs and offerings of quartz and granite etc. - to be able to do all with her at Tango made the process that much more streamlined.
Working with her contractor, Mike, kept everything "under one roof" so to speak, with the three of us in contact throughout. I never felt like anybody was out of the picture during the process - and Dena, thank you again for always being there for us. We likely asked more questions than any client, being such reno-newbies!
The final work - love that you suggest we live in for 1-2 weeks to see if anything is amiss or needs adjusting etc. - is something I do not believe others offer.
The quality, timing, and design - first class!
Many thanks!

Kitchen Renovation

We hired the Tango team to help us design a functional and beautiful kitchen. Dena was thoughtful in her recommendations to ensure efficiency of the design. The end result was stunning. They exhibited quality, care and top notch service from design through installation - at a reasonable price. Thank you very much!

Kitchen Renovation

The kitchen renovation industry is quirky. A lot of kitchen designers want significant retainers ($4000), are vague about concepts and details until you’ve retained them, and exploit asymmetrical information - they know what things cost, you don’t, they make the best profit they can. And in the end, most of their designs look remarkably similar to the next.

So after interviewing more than a dozen companies, we went with Tango. Dena’s process is very transparent and the client has room to get what he or she wants. My goal was to get very high quality cabinets at an acceptable price, installed without too much grief. I wanted quality, durability, a classic look that might not seem silly 10 years from now, and a designer who could work with a 15’ long galley kitchen. Dena understood that we wanted a kitchen that would fit in with the rest of the house (a traditional 1930s home). She didn’t insist we tear a wall down, like most other designers seemed intent on doing.

Working with Dena was productive. Her design was the best concept we saw. She worked quickly and efficiently, while not sacrificing the overall design or important finishing touches. She found a good balance between allowing our ideas in, but also provided advice and expertise when needed. The project was on time, it cost what she said it would, and we knew that cost before hiring her.

The cabinets: Tango uses Kitchen Craft, which is a smart way to do it. I know there are folks out there who prefer something radically custom, “made locally,” and I don’t quibble that such a design can be great. We had a few truly custom elements in this kitchen to make sure it maximized the space, but for the most part we all want drawers, cabinets, and boxes within a similar range of dimensions. As well, there is the issue of quality: the cabinets Dena supplied are better in construction than many more expensive, more custom, more local options we considered (we went with wood ply interiors for longevity, as an upgrade).

A good designer can make a Kitchen Craft product look very custom. That is where Dena’s strengths are. She can achieve a custom look while keeping costs low.

There is a gap in the market between Ikea (which has totally workable cabinets, of course, and excellent value), and the high-end-low-value designers. Tango fills that gap nicely; excellent quality, a high degree of customizability, and the possibility to get something way more elegant than any of the big box stores.

(The cost here includes only the cabinets, the Cambia countertop, and the installation. A lot of the cost in kitchen renovation is in the appliances and contractor. On the appliances, be vigilant (you can find value if you look). And we took on the contracting ourselves - hiring individual trades for the electrical, plumbing, tile, and gas. It was more work, but it saved us at least $5-6K. In the experience of my friends and colleagues, the contractor is often the frustrating part, so if you can control that on your own, all the better.)

Kitchen Renovation

After saving for a few years for our dream kitchen, my husband and I did quit the research to make sure that we are getting the best service as we had heard a lot of horror stories about other kitchen companies. We can say with confidence that Tango Design studio absolutly exceeded our expectation from start to finish. Their designer Dena was patient enough to go through all of our options to make sure that we are on budget and was able to come up with a functional and beautiful design. Their installers were very proffessional and on time so our project was done within the time frame that they had promised! We are in love with our modern/contrmporary kitchen and have been recommending Tango to all our friends!

Amazing Modern Kitchen

I visited Tango Kitchens based on a referral – as soon as I was introduced to Dena I knew I was in good hands. Dena is a young, professional and talented designer. Her ideas and style were a perfect match for the modern look I was going for. She listened to exactly what I wanted and provided different options and her own suggestions. The entire process was simple and seamless; installation was quick and the price was on point.

I'm in love with every part of my new kitchen. Thank you to Dena and the team at Tango!

kitchen renovation

We hired Tango Kitchens to design a new kitchen for us. We selected Tango because of the quality of the cabinetry that they sell (Kitchen Craft), the years of experience that Dena brought to the project, the quality of the installation that Dena promised, and the warranty that Tango & Kitchen Craft provide. We are delighted with our new kitchen.

Kitchen Makeover

Tango was recommended to us by a co-worker of my husbands and we decided one afternoon just to "go for it" and stop in. We were there for an hour and within that hour we had chosen our cabinets, counter top & hardware. Dena gave us a timeline when everything would be ready and set a date up for installation. Everything came together as planned and we couldn't be more happy than how it all turned out. I would highly recommend her and her associates to anyone looking to renovate or upgrade there kitchen. We just love our new kitchen.

Completely new kitchen

We love our new kitchen cabinets, excellent quality, beautiful workmanship over all. The only issue is there were a few fixes required after installation, & we simply could not get anyone to get back to us, although we contacted both Canadian Tire (we went through sir program to get the Reno done, & they subcontracted to Tango) as well as Tango directly. We had a family friend fix the trim on our window seat & my husband fixed the microwave shelf.
