We recently moved from a lifetime in Montreal to North York. We heard about Joseph Gelfand and this company from a family member. Extremely satisfied would be in understatement. All of our communication of plans, colours….multiple choices….was done on-line or phone. Two bedrooms of built ins, kitchen pantry and a unique kitchen/living room divider were done in a fantastic and professional manner. Can’t say enough good things about their design and workmanship
A little more than a year ago my wife and I moved from Montreal to Toronto. We were given Joseph Gelfand’s name by relatives of ours. We met with Joseph as soon as we purchased a condo. He came up with numerous decor designs. Firstly, a master bedroom design, as ALL of our old furniture from our private home was much too large for a condo. Secondly, a second room which we wanted as a den, but had to double as a guest bedroom, again to fit in with more appropriately-sized furnishings. For this room he suggested an entire wall unit with a desk, which when manouevered on its hinges, became a Murphy bed. In the master suite, he built a king sized bed frame with bed side tables, surrounded by a massive amount of storage cupboards and drawers, including storage drawers under the bed. With our already existing walk-in closet, we now had more storage area for ourselves than we previously had in our home.
As well, we decided to tear down an existing kitchen wall (which had two entry doors to the living room/dining area) Our construction contractor advised us that we would have to replace either the ceramic tiles in the kitchen or the entire floor in the living-dining area as tearing the wall down would leave a void where it had existed. Joseph immediatedly came up with an idea. He suggested building a small island to cover this opening between the floors of both rooms. He came up with this unit that had glass doors on both sides to now become a storage/display cabinet.
He built a separate pantry, as the kitchen really didn’t have enough room to accommodate adequate food storage. Al of this in a 1350 square foot condo.
All of these attractive designs make our condo look airy and open, yet give us enough room for storage.
In addition, our master bathroom was transformed from a very functional space to a master bathroom with more than enough accommodation of a double medicine chest and sink unit cabinet below. We altered our existing shower to a steam shower and still had enough space to leave the standard tub for bathing.
All of this was done long-distance from Montreal…..all furniture colours chosen from afar using standard paint store samples.
Joseph was a gentleman to deal with and kept within the budget we had agreed upon beforehand.
