Every home renovation project has thousands of little details that need to be precisely coordinated to produce the best results. Kaleidoscope Designs will work with you to complete your project so that it meets your expectations.
Once you have made the decision to renovate your home, the next step is to hire a professional that will turn your dreams into reality. It is important to seek out a team that will work diligently to understand your vision and subsequently create a personalized design that addresses layout, materials and colour choices.
We have access to exclusive products, materials and services. We are able to secure items that have greater durability and craftsmanship than mass-produced materials. We are mindful of time frames and the readiness of specific products and ensure their availability throughout the project.
At Kaleidoscope Designs, we design, manage and supervise every step of the project, from demolition to construction. We coordinate with a skilled team of tradesmen and maintain effective communication to ensure an efficient, budget conscious, streamlined process.
At the start of a renovation project a great deal of time is spent on the design concept, product and material selection. Visiting showrooms, looking through magazines, checking out websites like Houzz can be time consuming and overwhelming.
Experience and Know-How
DIY projects can be fun, but a full home renovation, bathroom design, or kitchen design requires the experience of skilled designers and a well-coordinated team. It is imperative that you hire a firm that understands your unique priorities and is professionally trained to manage all aspects of the project.
The Construction Crew
Our responsibility extends to scheduled site visits that ensure the contractor is following all project details and designs. During these visits we address questions and concerns, correct discrepancies and comment on the quality of work. Only then do we approve requests for payment based on the project meeting the agreed upon requirements.
Kitchens & Bathrooms
Kitchens come in all shapes and sizes. It can be overwhelming to conceptualize and manage a kitchen project from beginning to end. Kaleidoscope Designs partners with you to create and finalize drawings, choose colour schemes, and address layout and material selections. We coordinate the entire renovation so that you can be confident that all the details of your design come to life quickly and without unexpected hassles and delays. Bath and powder rooms are typically small areas that require careful space planning to be both effective and efficient. Kaleidoscope Designs will personalize your bathroom space while addressing layout, storage, water conservation and ventilation requirements. We determine which options are best suited to your space and ensure the work is completed to your satisfaction.
Floor Plans & Elevations
Floor plans and elevations are the first step in conceptualizing your space. It is important to get space planning correct and to see it on paper can sometimes help clients visualize the final outcome. Kaleidoscope Designs will also help review blueprints to ensure interior functionality. Sometimes the smallest details such as a light switch or outlet placement makes all the difference to a room and how it is used. It’s best to catch these issues prior to building, preventing any unnecessary expenses.
Permanent storage solutions are fantastic for organizing various areas of your home, from mudrooms and laundry areas, to walk-in closets and family rooms. We work with local cabinet makers and fine carpentry woodworkers to create beautiful and functional custom storage solutions. Whether it’s a series of creative hidden mitten drawers along your staircase, or a built-in fireplace surround to display books and keepsakes, anything is possible.
Furniture & Accessories
From custom made-to-order furniture to pieces from local stores, Kaleidoscope Designs can help you select the perfect items for your space. We work with several Canadian manufacturers ensuring quality in the construction of custom pieces and more control over the delivery time. We have extensive knowledge of the wide range of products readily available from our standard furniture suppliers as well as local furniture stores. Accessories are just as important as the larger pieces because lighting, rugs, pillows and artwork will tie the concept together and complete the design. We have something for every taste and budget.
Paint Colour Consultation
We provide paint colour consultations for both the interior and exterior of your house. We focus primarily on Benjamin Moore paints, but have worked with all paint manufacturers. Wallpaper is also something we have available – from grasscloth to commercial vinyl. Our professional painters and wallpaper installers always provide clients with a perfectly finished job.
Custom Window Treatments & Upholstery
Drapery, sheers, Roman blinds, bedding, pillows and anything else that requires custom sewing is available through Kaleidoscope Designs. Our local seamstress is amazing and we have access to all major fabric/textile suppliers such as Robert Allen, Kravet, Maxwell, Telefina, Joanne Fabrics, and Crown. Our local custom upholsterer and furniture maker can breathe new life into vintage pieces with new upholstery, stuffing or even a sprayed paint finish.
