Vlad is a skilled tradesman who planned & installed our kitchen cabinets in a 1890s Cabbagetown Victorian. His work was top notch and a great value (about $1100 for Vlad's design and install service, plus $1700 for the cabinets). He was professional, clean, and the finish product is installed properly. He fit the cabinets to our uneven 120-year-old walls perfectly. Our design was quite elaborate, with a marble topped island that included a sink and panel-hidden dishwasher. He also had to strengthen the cabinets to take our marble countertops.
Vlad isn't a slick salesman or a fancy designer, but a tradesman who knows IKEA inside and out. He improved on our "napkin" design and went back and forth with us 11 revisions will we were happy. We're picky.
We special ordered door fronts to fit the IKEA cabinets from Semihandmade.com , which took time but was well worth it. Vlad came back to install these too.
No complaints. It isn't worth assembling and installing these cabinets yourself. Vlad's a pro.
