To  Charline Beaulieu, Beaulieu Design, – Chris and I want to extend our heartfelt thanks for our exceptional kitchen renovation. In the early spring of 2008 we decided to renovate our kitchen – we had listened to many horror stories by friends and family and were quite anxious about putting such a large project in a complete stranger’s hands.

Chris and I are both very busy professionals and we knew we needed expert help as neither of us had any experience with a  renovation of this size. Charline of Beaulieu Design was  recommended by a friend. Charline had just relocated to the area.  We met with Charline and liked her immediately. She was warm and friendly and listened to our ideas and or suggestions to what we thought would work for us.  Within days, Charline came up with 7 design sketches for us to look at.  She walked us thru each sketch – going over the pros and cons of each. Once we decided on new design, she agreed to work with Carleton Design Build to achieve our goal.

The actual renovations started June 16th and by September 7th we were back in our totally redesigned kitchen – this was an extensive renovation with the kitchen being gutted, walls being removed, new windows and doors, new appliances, lighting  and then  the all important cupboards, island etc. Our “angel” Charline was on site weekly, if not more often, making sure the design was being followed.  She help us choose just the right style of cabinetry, paint, flooring, lighting  and  she even went to Toronto to get our granite for the kitchen. I remember the day our new doors were coming and we forget to get the lock sets – Charline went to Home Depot and picked them up for us!!

We had only 1 Change Order and that was at our request to install hard wood flooring in the family room adjacent to the kitchen.

Charline was extremely professional, kind and always very respectful of working in our home. We felt by the end of the project that she was a new friend.

The end result is a wonderful kitchen that definitely has a WOW factor. There is not one thing we would change. Chris and I enjoy cooking in our new kitchen and entertaining family and friends.
