Imagine entering into your new kitchen with a feeling of pride and excitement; whether entertaining company or comfortable living with your family. Your kitchen from Inspired Spaces will surely be a centrepiece that you can share in fashion and function. The testimonials from happy customers show just how fabulous a Kitchen from Harbour Kitchens at Inspired Spaces can truly be.
"We just finished having our new kitchen cabinets designed, supplied and installed by Inspired Spaces in Courtenay. We are completely happy with their work and attention to detail. At no time did the designers rush us to make a decision but were always ready with helpful suggestions and available when we had questions," says one happy Comox Valley couple. "The cabinets are made of Hickory and are flawless, all doors and drawers operate smoothly. The installer did a perfect job. He never rushed and everything had to be perfect before he was satisfied with his own work. The support staff are always cheerful. Originally we were going to obtain our cupboards from one of the big lumber companies simply because of cost; we thought custom design would be just too expensive, however, it turned out their prices were very competitive. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone."
Another couple is thrilled with the look, and the compliments they receive.
"The plan of our home, the great room concept, allow the kitchen to be a focal point and shows the furniture-style cabinetry off to full advantage. The finishing and detail elicits words of praise and compliments from family and friends. From conception to completion, the staff guided us through the process in a helpful, courteous manner. Within the first week of moving into our new home, Inspired Spaces sent over an employee to attend to any minor adjustments. The follow-up attention was second to none. Thank you for a smooth, enjoyable working relationship and a job well done."
