Louise O’Haran impressed us from the start. Her sincerity and desire to achieve the best results with the most value for our money was consistent throughout our kitchen design and renovation. Louise is passionate about quality and communications. She demonstrated that she cared about us. She was readily accessible 7AM to 7PM during the week by means of phone, text and email, and went above and beyond during the critical phases of our project amidst COVID-19. Her creative yet practical approach to design included: considerations for nuances in colour, textures and lighting; layout and style that maximize appeal and property value; and consideration for the uniqueness of our ocean-front beach house. Louise closely monitored all phases of our project. Aspects of our renovation experience that stood out to us were communications, consultative design, ordering ease, on-time delivery and installation, and attentiveness to ensure her high standards for quality were met in every activity performed by her and her Kitchen Design Plus team. Beyond her immediate team, Louise’ network of resources made finding the right renovation-related input and support timely and helpful. Thank you for helping us achieve more than we expected within our budget. We love the results and the general feedback we receive from family, friends and visitors is WOW!
KD-Plus (Louise) was just amazing to work with during all stages of our kitchen reno! Louis's moto whenever I had a concern was - with a steady confidence -"no worries I will take care of it". She is a steady ship to your family during the reno! KDPlus is about relationships, trust and quality! Louise and her team were responsive and the price point was within reason. Our family plans to do our master en-suite with KDPlus as our next project! Thank you Louise for all that you do! Pleasant family
We were searching for how to approach a kitchen and bath reno for a modest war time house. We dropped into Louise's showroom and were thrilled to find someone with not only an understanding of what we wanted but also a fine sense of proportion. We wanted functional, affordable changes which would enable us to age (gracefully) in our house. Louise presented us with an efficient design which balanced budget and quality. Louise always takes that next step to ensure that her clients are happy -- guiding and directing colour and material choices to fit within budget. The renovation happened nearly seamlessly as Louise contracts to excellent work crews who get the job done. She is a talented, responsive and helpful designer!
When I first thought of using a "Kitchen Designer" for my relatively small project ($12K), I thought "oh, they won't even talk to me" but Louise and Bonnita were amazing! Louise was upfront and honest about the challenges with my initial design and came up with great ideas for a recycling centre, a flour bin, where the dishwasher should be in relation to my dishes, etc. I ended up with a functional, beautiful kitchen which I couldn't be happier with! Both also worked well, at a distance, with my contractor in PEI. I would definitely recommend their services.
We were struggling to fit the features we wanted in a kitchen design within the framework of a house we love, and have lived in for thirty plus years. We had taken our tentative plans to a few places, but it was Louise at KDP who offered us a layout that met all our specifications, and added a few suggestions we had not anticipated. The plan was important, but so was the process. Louise set us up with a contractor, and through every step of the decision making provided contacts that helped us get everything we wanted. Change, even positive, is not easy. Louise and the people she brought in to help us made the transition enjoyable. We have had some time to enjoy our new kitchen entertaining family and friends. It is now gathering memories of warmth, laughter, and many prepared dishes – old favourites and new ones.
After embarking on my first major renovation I was really excited to plan the kitchen. After meeting Bonnita and Louise at KDP I knew I found the right people. The trust, confidence and expertise they displayed immediately put me at ease. After the plans were drawn I relied on their expertise to develop a functional beautiful kitchen. They did not disappoint. The quality of their product, functionality selection, dedication and customer service excelled through the whole process. All my cabinets arrived when promised, price was exactly as proposed and very fair. The customer service is above and beyond anyone I have dealt with in the renovation industry. These girls are experts in what they do and I fully would put 100 percent trust in them. The end result was a beautiful functional updated kitchen that I absolutely am proud to have. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to have a stress free process of renovating their kitchen with girls that are a pleasure to deal with.
I can’t think of a greater compliment than ‘I wouldn’t change a thing’. We have been living with and using our new kitchen for 3 months now and we are happy to say that it is as functional as it is beautiful. We love spending time in the kitchen and just naturally gravitate there. You can have several people working in it and it still functions well. The open flow between the kitchen and adjacent sitting area is ideal for entertaining. Kitchen Design Plus is a very customer focused business and Louise and Bonnita are as happy to work with you on your design as they are to create a design specifically for you. Our project was an excellent collaboration of my design ideas with KDP’s kitchen design expertise and signature style. Of the companies that we contacted, KDP was the only company that sent out the designers to measure the space and meet with you – the result - a better space. Working with Louise and Bonnita was an enjoyable and exciting process, start to finish. We knew that if any issues arose, they would take care of it. We would not hesitate to recommend KDP for any kitchen or bathroom renovation project.
Kitchen Design Plus (KDP) brought discipline to the design process of our condo kitchen and bathrooms. Louise and Bonnita ensured complete satisfaction every step of the way. Their concern for the customer's needs and respect for their decisions, combined with their attention to detail, and discerning eye, allowed us to fully maximize our limited space, while achieving both elegance and functionality. We were 100% satisfied with the Glenwood cabinetry we chose. It's solid construction, durable finish and high performance hardware, coupled with KDP's attention to the installation of the cabinets, have lived up to our high expectations. I highly recommend KDP to all who are about to embark on the design and installation process in their home.
KDP along with our contractor tackled the extensive kitchen renovation with confidence. The list of demands was challenging and included a separate bake station, wet bar, desk, storage and ample sitting space for entertaining. Louise and Bonnita with their vast knowledge and experience fulfilled all of our expectations and beyond! Their services and expertise are not exclusive to kitchen design. They assisted with coordinating tile, countertop, hardware and even paint selection. Communication throughout the entire project was prompt. Questions and problems were addressed in a timely and professional manner. We were impressed with the sturdiness yet elegance of our Glenwood cabinetry which arrived when promised. The skilled and friendly KDP team installed with ease and confidence. The words I would use to describe Louise and Bonnita include; professional, disciplined, knowledgeable, committed, approachable yet "fun" and dedicated to the end. I would recommend KDP for any kitchen design and renovation project without hesitation. Our kitchen is absolutely beautiful!!!
It was a fortunate day when I walked into the KDP+ showroom to discuss a kitchen project I was contemplating. Louise O'Haran and Bonnita Mitchell gave me a warm welcome, helpful advise, and put me in touch with construction and electrical contractors to get quotes on preparation work. I eventually scaled back the project to just a peninsula counter, but continued to get the kind attention from KDP+ that one would normally expect for only a much larger project. Louise and Bonnita also came up with some brilliant ideas to solve some design problems - arranging the counter seating to face out instead of into the kitchen. The subcontractors used by KDP+ were without exception highly skilled and helpful in meeting my needs. Louise and Bonnita continued to monitor the progress of my project throughout, getting updates from suppliers and keeping me informed. The end result was a beautiful high quality addition to my kitchen. I was also impressed with KDP's commitment to local charities, reducing their cost in exchange for a donation to a worthy cause. I would highly recommend KDP+ to anyone interested in remodeling their kitchen.
My wife and I searched all over the Halifax area and beyond for replacement countertops. This process took six months of visiting kitchen designers and countertop retailers. One of the first we called upon was KDP where we were treated in such a friendly manner even though we were not ready to place an order. Despite an attractive price we had to do our due diligence and checked with many others, but in the end we came back to Louise and Bonnita. Not only did we feel that they went the extra mile in making sure we were happy, we felt that their quartz supplier and installer had a similar attitude. We are very happy with our beautiful new countertops and would not hesitate to recommend KDP to any of our acquaintances. Thanks Louise and Bonnita!
What impressed me most about Louise and Bonnita was their professionalism, decisiveness and their ability to instill confidence. They seemed to know exactly what would go best with my preferences and there was no hesitation or wavering, neither did they give the impression that they would want to change my choices but rather found a way to work around them with gentle suggestions when necessary. Any threatened snag or delay was immediately addressed by Louise. They both offered guidance on how to coordinate the project and referrals to the right people to get the related jobs done efficiently and on time. Follow-up was very important to them and to me. They made sure that I was pleased with the finished Job. I have no hesitation in sincerely recommending Kitchen Design Plus and their team. I am very happy with my new kitchen. I know that with their friendly attitude and the good services they offer, they will continue to be very successful.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Bonnita and Louise to complete my kitchen renovation. I came to KDP needing countertops in a hurry and I knew right away that I had gone to the right place. The whole process ran quickly and smoothly, and I now have gorgeous Caesarstone countertops and an awesome Bristol sink. Couldn't be more satisfied. P.S. I'm actually in heaven over this sink. All our friends have been commenting on it!
You all did an amazing job. The colour match on a twenty year old kitchen is outstanding and Jeff did a great job installing. Please pass on my thanks to Glenwood. I'm a happy customer, thank you so much.
We recently had the pleasure of using the services of KDP to design a full kitchen renovation. Louise and Bonnita were very exacting in the creation of the design and extremely generous in their time to arrive at a final set of plans that met our needs. Despite the flat fee structure we never felt rushed; they both went out of their way to answer our questions and deal with any concerns that arose. Louise is a take-charge individual. She did a very good job of managing the schedule, all while keeping us informed at every step of the renovation. Were it not for Louise's industry contacts, we would not have known of Glenwood Kitchen Ltd. We are very pleased with the quality of the workmanship and materials used by the company, and their professionalism. Those comments also apply to Jade Stone, the producers of our countertops and her cabinet installer. It’s obvious that Louise surrounds herself with the best professionals in the industry. We are very satisfied customers and would recommend the services of KDP.
We really enjoyed working with Louise O'Haran's company on our kitchen renovation. Louise was a knowledgeable resource and really took the time to understand our vision. Her product knowledge, design talent, project management skills and positive relationships with the trades and other suppliers were instrumental in ensuring that we got the kitchen we wanted. She took the pain out of our kitchen renovation and was thorough and thoughtful throughout the process. We have recommended her to friends over and over.
We highly recommend Kitchen design Plus. Louise was recommended by our wonderful contractors Don Scott and Doug McLeod, and it was truly a wise investment of very little money. We had fun working with Louise on a small difficult space, and her ideas were excellent. We didn't change much from the original design. We are glad we followed her advice on the materials used, and enjoyed our morning picking out the countertops at Bella Marble with her. Everything arrived on schedule, and it is a joy to work in our new kitchen. Clearly Louise knows her stuff and understands people who cook and enjoy having guests in the kitchen while they are doing it.
I was fortunate to be the highest bidder on a kitchen consultation that Louise donated to a local public school. Louise and her capable friendly staff have created a floor plan that uses the small space I have to its greatest potential. Knowing that I have a budget they are working to create a kitchen that is worthy of a Nova Scotia kitchen party minus the bagpipes and tartan fabric.
My kitchen needed to be totally redone so I was recommended to KDP, they did not disappoint! Overall, fantastic service and quality workmanship!
Wow..... what an amazing kitchen... I tried to restrain myself a bit in front of Jamie yesterday afternoon ......but as soon as he left I was jumping up and down all over the place !!!! You are super !! Please call when you have a chance.
