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.
