Included as standard in every build:
- 3/4" material with doweled joints allowed for better overall shelf rigidity and a longer lasting product.
- Soft close hinges and soft-under-mount slides are standard with all packages to reduce wear and allow for a smooth and quiet operation.
- An enhanced painting process which allows for a consistent finish void of "thin spots", which translates into a longer lasting vibrant product for your home

Your Renovation Guide:
Turning Your House into Your Dream Home

Home renovation is an exciting journey that can transform your living space and increase your quality of life. Whether you’re updating a single room or embarking on a full-house overhaul, proper planning and a clear vision are key. In this renovation guide, we’ll walk you through the essential steps to make your dream home a reality.

  1. Define Your Vision
    Every successful renovation begins with a clear vision. Take some time to envision how you want your space to look and feel. Consider the style, colour palette, and the functionality you desire. It’s essential to establish a vision before moving forward.
  1. Set a Realistic Budget
    Creating a budget is essential for your renovation project. Determine how much you’re willing to invest, and be realistic about it. Ensure your budget includes not just construction costs but also a contingency fund for those sneaky expenses.
  1. Research and Plan
    Research is your best friend in the renovation process. Gather inspiration from home design magazines, websites, and social media platforms. Create a detailed renovation plan that outlines your project’s scope, timeline, and milestones. If this step seems overwhelming or out of your scope, consider consulting with professionals who specialize in renovations.
  1. Find the Right Professionals
    If your renovation project requires expertise beyond your DIY capabilities, it’s time to find the right professionals. Whether you’re looking for kitchen carpentry, a custom bathroom, or custom cabinetry, do your due diligence to find qualified and reputable experts who align with your vision.
  1. Obtain Necessary Permits
    Depending on the scope of your project, you might need permits from your local government. Check with local authorities to ensure you are compliant with building codes and regulations. Another benefit of working with professionals is they have experience obtaining permits and will aid you in this process.
  1. Material Selection
    Selecting materials for your renovation is crucial. Choose high-quality materials that align with your budget and design vision. Consider factors like durability and maintenance when making your selections. There are small changes that can make big differences in a renovation. For example, If you need cabinetry, you’ll not only want to choose high-quality cabinets but also consider choosing soft close hinges to prevent slamming. 
  1. Interior Design
    During the interior design phase, you can incorporate the final elements that give your home its distinctive character. From paint colours to furnishings and decor, this is where your dream comes to life.
  1. Enjoy Your Dream Home
    Once the renovation is complete, it’s time to enjoy your newly transformed space. Take the time to savour the results of your hard work and investment. Remember that every renovation project is unique, and unexpected challenges may arise. Being flexible and maintaining open communication with your team of professionals will help ensure a successful outcome.

By following this ultimate renovation guide and staying committed to your vision, you’ll turn your house into your dream home, one step at a time. Happy renovating!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?

The best way to get started is to book an appointment with one of our designers so we can understand your project. We will meet with you and gather information about your needs, your likes and dislikes and your budget to help bring your vision to life. 

How long will it take to build my kitchen cabinets?

Our custom kitchens are normally installed within 8-12 weeks, depending on our workload, the availability of supplies and the complexity of your project. 

What if I have my own kitchen contractor/installer?

While we pride ourselves on the quality of our installers, we have been fortunate to work with some of the top installers, contractors and home builders in the region. We’re happy to arrange your installations with the vendor of your choice. However, its important to note that your warranty may be affected by using your own installers as we can ensure a quality installation every time.

What areas do you service?

Our home base is in Waterloo Region, however, we’ve serviced clients all throughout the Golden Triangle and Southern Ontario. Click here to view a map of our service area.

Can you remove my current kitchen cabinets?

Unfortunately, no. While we’re very used to finding existing cabinets where your new ones need to go, we suggest working with your general contractor who are typically happy to dismantle and dispose of your old cabinets. 

When appropriate we recommend working with organizations like Habitat for Humanity and their Re-Store to give your old cabinets new life. Check them out here.

Do I need to be home for the kitchen installation?

We require someone to be home when our installers arrive each morning so that we can gain access to your home. Once you have let us in, you are more than welcome to leave your home for the day. All of our workers are trained to treat your home with the utmost respect, and are insured in the extremely rare case of damage occurring.

Is a deposit required before work can start on my new kitchen?

Yes. We require a 50% deposit ahead of ordering your kitchen cabinet materials. The remaining balance is charged upon project completion. With the uncertainty of the current market, this also means that your pricing is locked in even if we don’t install for another few months.

Let's Work Together, Start Your Project Today!
