My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Julinda Balca of Cedar Ridge Design for our major renovation of a century home in downtown Ottawa. Julinda was fantastic to work with. She is a fabulous designer with incredible taste and she listens deeply to what her clients want/like. All the aspects of our reno that she touched are beautiful to look at and bring us joy. She managed to beautifully marry the century home style with an updated gorgeous kitchen for our busy family of 5. Her kitchen is not only stunning but also practical. She was able to give us everything we wanted but did not know how to achieve. Beyond her amazing design talent, she was trustworthy and hardworking and kept us on budget. We are very satisfied with the quality and finishes of our custom Cedar Ridge kitchen. It was made perfectly for our finicky old house. We have hired Julinda for other design aspects of our house as she is simply amazing.
For projects on this scale I’m looking for a company that provides excellence in design, craftmanship and execution. CedarRidge delivered on all three – I couldn’t be happier with the result. From the ownership to the designer, to the craftsmen and installers, everyone was a pleasure to work with and the finished product is simply beautiful and wonderfully functional.
We were first introduced to the fine craftsmanship of Cedar Ridge Designs in 2015 with the completion of our kitchen cottage, which included full cupboards, deep drawers, build-in utensil/silverware drawers and an island. This year, when renovating our home Cedar Ridge was the only choice for us which included the kitchen, ensuite, laundry and full bath. The quality of the work is superior, time line accurate and installation exemplary. Colin and his team thrive on perfection and they are not happy until the customer is completely satisfied. We would not hesitate to recommend Cedar Ridge.
