How did you get started with Coordinated Kitchens and what do you like most about doing business in North Van?
Coordinated has been in business on the North Shore since 1974, owned by Michael Phillips and operated by a core team including his family, designers and trades. We’ve seen many trends come and go over the years but Coordinated likes to focus on classic timeless design that people on the North Shore tend to appreciate and we’ve found this style of design has kept us in business. We like the North Shore community because we make long term connections, there’s just something special about North Van residents. For example we’ll do a renovation for a family with older children, then years later their kids will come and do a renovation with us in their own home, we appreciate those kinds of business relationships, they feel more like friendships than clients.
What kinds of homes, condos and projects do you work on locally?
We focus on residential kitchen and bathroom renovations, but we can help you with other elements of your home if you choose to do a kitchen or bath remodel with us we can add on flooring, fireplaces, trim work, stair railings and more. We work in either condos or houses and take care of everything from design, project management, construction and garbage removal to final completion.
If some of our readers want to upgrade their current kitchens or get a new build out, what is the process like?
We focus on kitchen and bathroom remodels and don’t do new construction, but we will partner with your new build contractor and do your kitchen or bathroom for you. We specialize in the details of kitchen design, knowing how to create the most functional layout for your space and using the latest technology to achieve results. This is something your general contractor may not focus on since they’re thinking of the bigger picture. If you want to do a renovation with us, just reach out to our team and we’ll come to your home for a consultation and give you a project estimate. You’re welcome to visit our showroom and have a chat with Dylan or give us a call or email. Once you agree to work with us, you’ll have a design consultation with our in-house designer to select materials for your project such as tile, countertop, paint colours, cabinet style and hardware. Then drawings for your kitchen or bathroom remodel will be developed, you’ll work closely with our project managers to finalize the design and sign off on the contract. After that, we’ll take care of everything over the next several weeks while the work is being completed.
How does an updated and custom kitchen add to the value of the home or condo?
We focus on remodelling kitchens and bathrooms because they tend to be the main selling feature people look at when purchasing a home. The kitchen is the heart of the home and if you have a family it needs to be durable and stand the test of time and bathrooms tend to be heavily used, so they need to be functional as well as beautiful. Renovating these spaces will definitely add value to your home, the key is to stick with classic, modern designs and avoid trendy items so it can appeal to a wide range of buyers.
In your spare time outside of running the business what do you get up to for activities?
Coordinated is a family run business with a close team of designers and trades that are like family to us because we’ve been working together for many years. Our team has a diverse background and enjoy anything from mountain biking on North Shore trails, to playing baseball and gardening.
Lastly, is there anything else you may want our readers to know about you or Coordinated Kitchens?
