2 story staircase railing

Matt built us a beautiful oak two story staircase railing on budget, on time and with minimal interference with the rest of the household. My sister says it is a work of art, the way it matches our Edwardian house so well. We would certainly employ him again, and in fact have already done so. He has built us a deck, a fence and bathroom cabinets.

Hi Juliet,

Thanks very much for your review. It is always such a pleasure working for you. The railing was a joy to build. It was also very fulfilling to bring a part of your lovely home back to its original style.

custom closets and shelves

From start to finish it was a positive experience working with Matt. He was patient and an active listener when first providing a quote for the job. He listened to our goals for the space and created designs to share and help visualize the work he was proposing. Because he is able to create everything from scratch we were able to get the exact dimensions to maximize our small space. He kept an extremely tidy work space when on site and always cleaned area at the end of the work day. His attention to deal and the quality of the work completed is amazing. We love the closets and shelves he created and are regularly complemented on the new space he created in our 2 small bedrooms he worked on. I would highly recommend his services to others.

Hi Mary-Beth,

Thanks very kindly for your review. It was a lot of fun creating the perfect all-in-one built-ins for your family. It goes to show how much a good design can pull all of your storage and functional needs into a small space.

Custom closet design and installation

We hired Matthew to install custom closets in our older home in Bloor west village. From the moment we engaged Matthew we were impressed with his honesty and professionalism. He gave us three options for designs and we were able to select the option that best suited our budget. We also had a baby on the way and he worked well within our short timeline. We have had the closet for over 6 months and I am still in awe over the quality and extra space the designs he created. We are already thinking of our next project with him. I would recommend Matthew to anyone looking for any custom built in work

Hi Tracy,

Thanks very much for your review. I'm happy you're enjoying the cabinetry and that it is still meeting your storage needs with all the new baby items that I am sure are filling up every corner of your house. I'm looking forward to working with you again.

renovation, design and woodworking

We have a two storey townhouse that needed a complete renovation. Matthew came to a meeting, listened carefully to our needs and desires and came back with a thoughtful, creative design/plan of action, that would achieve the desired effect. This started with a complete transformation of a small bedroom into a TV/office/dressing room. Sounds like a lot for one 10' x 10 ' room, but he did it and it's visually beautiful and totally practical. The kitchen was next which needed to be updated and made more stylish. New cupboard fronts, special drawer installations, new backsplash and marble counter top, plus new appliances were implemented. Then he designed a beautiful, moveable, wood island piece that incorporated a wine rack and shelving for pots/pans and cookbooks. We use this every single day and it's perfect for entertaining. Included in this renovation was a tall, front hall storage unit , a large bookshelf (floor to ceiling) in the master bedroom and a custom piece of furniture built to house linen in the hallway. Add to this new pot lights on both floors, new crown moldings, new carpet and finally a complete paint job and we were done. Matthew managed our expectations in a timely manner and he and his team were incredibly tidy. We did live in our home the entire time so this was very important. The cost we have approximated represents the design, the millwork and the project managing, which was fair and competitive. We would highly recommend Matthew to anyone interested in this type of renovation. Creative, congenial, timely and thorough certainly describes our experience with working with Matthew Tormey.

Fireplace mantel

My living room fireplace was an eyesore and totally out of keeping with the style of my living room. Matt created a perfect design, in keeping with the age of my house and style of furnishings. I'm delighted.

Matt is punctual and cleans up efficiently. He is also very pleasant to have in the house.

Custom cabinets & vanity

We have now worked with Matt for two custom renovation projects and could not have been more thrilled with the results. In our former home Matt designed absolutely stunning custom bookshelves in the living room and a spectacular vanity (complete with electrical outlets and flattering lights!) in the master bedroom. Both spaces had some unusual quirks but he worked around them to the extent that you would never know those 'problems' had ever been there. We were so in love with the vanity unit that when we moved homes, we had him build us another!

When Matt promises 'custom', that's truly what he delivers. From the pre-construction designs that really bring the idea to life, to every precise detail being perfected with the best materials, what Matt will build in your home will last a lifetime. He is truly gifted at what he does and is incredibly professional, trustworthy and dependable. It's not easy to let someone into your house to work (particularly since you can't be there all the time) but with Matt I have absolutely no hesitations.

When ever someone visits our home for the first time I absolutely cannot wait to show them the beautiful builds that are care of Matt's handiwork! He has absolutely been instrumental at making our home beautiful. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any project - you will not regret it.

Hi Caroline,

Thanks very much for your wonderful review. As much as it was a shame to see the first project get sold with your first home it was all the more enjoyable to build an even grander second iteration! Looking forward to working for you again in the future.
