Burlington Interior DesignerMy husband and I are doing a Kitchen and a basement reno. We called Joanne with one particular question in mind regarding kitchen flooring, but by the time we were done we had a million questions answered! We talked about kitchen flooring, cabinets, basement designs, furniture placement, lighting mirrors…oh the list goes on. We are really impressed with Joanne’s knowledge, insight and wisdom. It goes beyond designing…she even helped us decide what to do with a particular piece of furniture my husband and I couldn’t agree upon (the piano). Really looking forward to the completion. We are excited and relieved because now we know what we are doing!

Burlington Interior DesignerI can’t imagine this project working out as well as it did or within the tight timeframe we had in mind if it wasn’t for Joanne Jakab. She was very professional and allowed us to share our own individual vision and bring forward a plan that we both would like. On our request, Joanne picked out paint and hardwood flooring, both suggestions that we went with, she helped us pick and source area rugs and lighting that all fit and work together so well, and she recommended great tradesmen who were punctual did the work they said they would do and provided the level of quality we were expecting. Joanne also was the initial point of contact for the tradesmen (painter, hardwood floor installers, and general tradesman/carpenter). This was a very exciting piece because Joanne knew the quality of their work and reputation and for us to figure that out on our own would have been a nightmare I’m sure.

Joanne was very accessible during our “Reno – Phase 1” by email, text, and phone. So impressed and will absolutely invite her to work for us again when we are ready for more. I am still amazed at her ability to remember details about our house after one visit. She accompanied us on a visit we had before we had possession of the house and she remembered so much more than what we did. Her vision for the finished project was amazing.

Something else that impressed us about Joanne, is she helped us save money. We started to get excited and a little ahead of ourselves so Joanne brought us back on track to the renovation plan we had in mind for this phase. We would have gone overboard with all the excitement.

I cannot commend Joanne enough and would absolutely recommend her to anyone, and of course like I said before, we would absolutely love to have her work on future projects of ours.

Burlington Interior DesignerJoanne was a joy to work with. She took my ideas for our open concept dining room / kitchen reno and through her experience and creativity was able to tweak them to the next design level. I liked her suggestion that we put cupboards on the dining room side under our high breakfast bar. I was able to get so much storage that I no longer needed my old china cabinet. It really opened up the space and saved me the cost of a new cabinet. My microwave was given a home on a shelf in a tall storage cupboard and sits behind doors when not in use instead of taking up space on my lovely granite counters.

Joanne had a wonderful crew on site and the kitchen cabinet installer she found for us was a true perfectionist. We shopped for many of the materials together and we were a good fit. She even found a chandelier on sale and sent me off to see it. It was just perfect for our newly opened up dining room!

I love our space and every time I am in it I smile and think of Joanne.

Burlington Interior DesignerAt our initial consultation meeting I got an immediate sense of someone who is warm, approachable, friendly, but above all a consummate professional at the top of her game.

Joanne is not the type of designer who imposes a set style on you; rather, Joanne helps homeowners bring out the best of what they want to achieve. She took the time to get to know us as people, she reviewed pictures of our old house, and took note of our furniture before assisting us with the design. The place now looks exactly how we want it; a reflection of us, only elevated, with a sense of flow from room to room.

She assisted in choosing tile, carpet, hardwood, paint, kitchen countertop and backsplash then sourcing each and ensuring delivery and installation on time and with a real attention to detail. Joanne would guide our selections with her extensive knowledge of materials and what would work best in our home and with our lifestyle. She saved us money wherever possible while still ensuring the materials were of the highest quality. Joanne was able to suggest unique pieces, such as the live wood mantle for the family room, given her knowledge of local businesses and manufacturers.

Joanne recommended tradespeople who were courteous and highly skilled. By liaising with the tradespeople, she made the renovation process (which occurred while we were living in the house) as quick and painless as possible.

Our renovation was extensive. It took almost two months to complete. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Joanne to anyone. When we inevitably begin the next round of updates to our home, the first call we make will be to Joanne.

Burlington Interior DesignerFrom the moment we met Joanne we knew we were going to hit it off. She immediately understood what the style and quality we liked. With her many years of experience she was able to steer us in the right direction and make suggestions that we would not have thought of ourselves. The result was an absolutely amazing upstairs renovation to our home that was beyond our expectations. We are now reluctant on doing anything ourselves as we could never produce the same look and feel that comes so naturally for Joanne.
