It is always a pleasure working with you.”

STEPdesign was able to provide a floor plan that satisfied all of our needs in less space, saving us thousands of dollars each year. We enjoy the paint colours, they have added sophistication and ambiance. One employee has said he produces 3 times as much work now that his workplace needs have been met. Thank you for providing excellent Interior Design Services!”

STEPdesign provided professional design services in the form of a design concept and then working drawings for permit and construction.

Come see us at 115 Miranda Avenue, Toronto.”

Throughout the project she was professional, flexible, resourceful and an absolute pleasure to deal with.”

“Thank you for shepherding us through this process of creating a new space in our home. We feel very blessed to have found you and to have realized this amazing space along with you. Your help throughout has been very valuable, and we continue to appreciate the various benefits that you pass on to us through your contacts in the business.”

    -S.G., Toronto.

STEPdesign’s recommendations on the fixtures and accessories were up to date. Space planning and attention to specific details were key to the success due to the

limited space. The workmanship was superb, the contractor skillfully dealt with all the components of the renovation.

The classic design was excellent and maximized the space making the bathroom look larger.  We are very happy with the outcome and highly recommend STEPdesign for design and renovations".
