Bedroom Built-Ins

For almost 5 years my wife and I were unhappy with our bedroom. A small closet system, bed, 2 nightstands, and a dresser with a TV on top, it felt unfinished, bare, and was not an efficient use of space.

All of that changed when we met Alex from Black Bear Design, she saw the space once and instantly had ideas for us. Alex returned after a week or so with amazing drawings showing all the possibilities. We quickly agreed on our favourite design and moved on to materials & pricing. Alex presented several comparable material options and a number of competitive quotes.

From design and colour selection to overseeing installation, Alex made our bedroom built-in renovation a seamless and enjoyable process. Our bedroom finally feels complete and we can't wait to start on the next project with her!

Nevin, Thank you so much for the kind review! It was a pleasure to work with you and your wife. You both were absolute gems - Open to different design and finish options but had a clear direction of what you were looking for. For the Built-in, we were able to highlight some great panel detail by selecting the perfect finishes for your space (While dealing with what turned out to be a tricky existing floor to match a coordinating wood grain). You and your wife did a great job on the final selection.

I am gladdened that you two are now happy with your bedroom space-And now have more room for Nevin's clothes. Now there is no need to store your clothes in the guest bedroom! :)

I too look forwards to working together again in the future.

Complete Mainfloor and Second Floor Design

Alex totally understood our vision and worked with us to come up with the perfect combination of feature and function for our main floor and second floor which included a kitchen and two bathrooms. I would highly recommend her for your next renovation.

Nino Thank you for the review! It was great space to work with- The space allowed for some creative thinking to come up with functional and beautiful designs. In particular, together we designed a kitchen which I would love to have for myself! Perfect for a growing family. You and E. were great to work with, open to my ideas and suggestions, but with a clear idea of what wanted and what elements you felt like you didn't need. I wish you many happy years of enjoying your family home!

Bathroom Design

We are very pleased with the work that Alex from Black Bear Design did designing our primary bathroom. Easy to work with, and flexible, she is a good listener yet not hesitant to share her suggestions. She had a lot of great ideas and input in the ideation and design elements, including selection of materials. She found some fabulous tiles and fixtures, and developed colour schemes that blended together very nicely. We are very happy with the final outcome, and can definitely recommend Black Bear Design without hesitation.

Cindy, Thank you so much for the amazing review! It should be known the amount of work you put into the project yourself. You found some beautifully unique products and really put focus on quality - Those choices are clearly seen and felt when you walk into this truly custom ensuite. You and M were an absolute pleasure to work with. You knew what you wanted but were open to my ideas; and together we designed a luxurious space with every detail accounted for. You two should be very proud of what you accomplished.
