When we decided to refurbish our apartment at Aspen Heights on River Valley Road, we went through a process of choosing the interior design company that would help us with this rather ambitious project. As it was a total refurbishment where the apartment was pretty much made up from scratch (new kitchen, new bathrooms, new floors, moving of walls, new electrical wirings etc), it was very important to get the right guys for the job. We met with 5-6 different ones and they all gave us a proposal based on the input we had given them.
It was clear to us quite early that Gary and Steven at Interior Diary was our preferred partners. Their initial proposal had visionary ideas and they presented a very good overall plan that closely matched what we wanted. They had incorporated our ideas well but they were also very good at coming up with new ideas that made a big difference to the outcome of the project.
It should also be mentioned that both Steven and Gary have nice, calm personalities which made the dialogue that much easier for us.
They were instrumental in all aspects of the refurbishment, not only the core design. They guided us through choices for kitchen appliances, bathroom appliances, tiles, lights, colours, fabrics, curtains, blinds etc.
After discussing various ideas back and forth - adjusting a bit here, changing a tad there, we started the actual work in early July. The project was moving forward steadily and Gary and Steven kept us updated on a regular basis through photos that was showing the progress. We through a few curve balls at them from time to time, but they were always very responsive and happy to make changes if we so wanted. But they always gave their honest opinion on how the proposed change would affect the outcome. We learned to trust their opinions and we would sometimes just let them decide on details where my wife and I could not agree.
The whole project was finished on time and the guys were on hand to manage final adjustments that we wanted to be had.
We are extremely happy with the outcome of the renovation. It all worked to plan and Gary and Steven was very helpful all the way through.
We would be very happy to recommend them to anyone who has interior design needs!
Very best regards
