Dinno was recommended by my boss, she used his services for a few projects and when I mentioned that we plan to redo our kitchen she said "I know the right person". And she was right.
We looked at custom kitchens, but ultimately the Ikea looks and prices won us over, so we decided to go with Ikea. We went to the store and chose the style.
Dinno came around, did the measurements and told us how he thinks we should place the cabinets and appliances to maximize the space, and a couple of days later sent us the 3D drawings so we can see how it looks like.
We decided we are good with the design and quote and went to Ikea to place the order for the furniture. Unfortunately Ikea did not had all the cabinets in stock so it took a few weeks and setting up web alerts for various pieces to get everything. This was the middle of the lockdown, so going to the stores was out of the question.
Anyway, we managed to get everything in a few orders from various stores around the GTA.
We installed hardwood on the main floor practically in the same time and Dinno was accommodating with the schedule, to minimize the time we spent without a kitchen.
Him and his helper were quick, the cabinets were installed in a couple of days. He had to do some cutting to make one fit, due to the location of the sink relative to the corner of the room, but we knew that beforehand.
We wanted quartz countertops, he told us to go with both an overhang for the breakfast area and a waterfall, and we decided to do that, and it was a great decision, it looks amazing, even if the waterfall increased the counters price with about 25 percent. We should have used the same quartz for the backsplash, but hindsight is 20-20.
Overall we are very happy and will work with Dinno again. The price was very good and the quality is great, and overall Dinno is very easy to work with. Will add photos as soon as we finish with the backsplash.
