We hired Arlie from Cornerstone Kitchens and Kevin from Twin Lions Contracting to plan and renovate our kitchen and we love the result. After months of indecision trying to plan it ourselves (and many hours spent searching Houzz photo’s for inspiration) we called Arlie.
She came to our house for a free consulation, measured the space and created a plan that made sense. It was thoughfully crafted with awesome interior fittings and integration of appliances. Arlie respected the decsions on finishings that we had already made and offered great advice on any aspect that we were unsure of. We went together to choose the granite slabs and she supervised the installation.
Twin Lions Contacting delivered a quality job in a short time frame ensuring the kitchen was ready for cabinet installation day. Scott the installer did a great job and Nikki from Cornerstone was always there to help and made a great suggestion for the handles. We sailed through our reno without the stress and extra expenses that we hear of so often. Thanks Cornerstone for a great job!

We absolutely love our new kitchen and we couldnt be happier with the results. Arlie, Nikki and carpenter Scott helped us with every detail, every step of the way. We would highly recommend them for your dream kitchen.

Cornerstone Kitchens were with us every step of the way in our kitchen renovation. We are delighted with the end result! They took care to explain all the steps and were extremely thorough in the initial consultation which was great. Highly recommend them!

I would highly recommend Cornerstone Kitchens. They have great vision when planning a kitchen. They think of every detail from where specific drawers and appliances should be located to the shape of the countertop to compliment the shape of the room.
The desire to create the most beautiful kitchen was very evident. I loved how I could just give them the project to take over particularly at such a busy time having just moved into the home, which was being renovated. They were very efficient and quick to respond to any questions or suggestions that I had.
When I couldn’t decide on door handles, Arlie even invited me to her home so that I could see what the handles looked like on her cupboards. I was so glad I didn’t go with any other company as the quality, personal attention and attention to detail would not have come close to what I experienced with Cornerstone.

Congratulations on your new company and partnership. With your extensive experience, eye for detail, functionality and design along with being easy and comfortable to work with, I have no doubt it will be a huge success.

We have had the pleasure of dealing with Nikki on a very large project. She is without doubt, one of the most professional and knowledgeable people we’ve encountered. You can trust that a good job will result – worry free. Thank you Nikki.

Thank you so much Arlie for our wonderful kitchen. It is everything that we had imagined for so long. I even bake now , and I am not a baker! You and your staff were great to work with and we have all the confidence to work with you again in the future.

I am continually delighted, every time I walk into my newly renovated kitchen, designed by Arlie Clarke of Cornerstone Kitchens & Design Ltd. Her design skills are amazing as is her ability to listen to my needs and desires and make astute suggestions. She offered me innovative and efficient options, within my budget. Her suggestions enhanced my own limited vision of the finished product and made it easier for me to make my choices for tiles, counter, cupboard style & matching hardware. The result was a warm, inviting, and more functional workspace than even I had envisioned. Attention to the details, like the fact I am left-handed, matters!
Arlie’s organizational skills relating to scheduling installations in a progressively timely fashion was most impressive. The finished product was a testament to first-class products combined with excellent workmanship by highly skilled installation craftsmen. Arlie handled all my inquiries and changes to the original design promptly and with consistent efficiency. Rare as it has become these days, Customer Service is definitely number one with this company! Cornerstone Kitchens & Design Ltd. also designed the kitchen and bathrooms in the new house I began to build in the country early this year. Arlie designed an efficient, space saving, and beautiful open-concept kitchen for this new house as well as the two bathrooms. The cabinets & countertop are done and the results are magnificent! Again, her creative design & suggestions proved judicious.
I can hardly wait to have Arlie design the renovation of my townhouse main bathroom next year. I would not hesitate to recommend Cornerstone to anyone, for either a renovation or new home kitchen & bath design. As soon as people see my kitchen, they want a new one too! It looks amazing and is highly functional, essential for a ‘foodie’ like me. I can now say I finally have my ‘dream kitchen’, something every cook wants. Congratulations to you both, Arlie & Nikki – you excel at what you do!”

I found Arlie to be extremely knowledgeable and approachable throughout every stage of the kitchen design and installation. She listened to my preferences,made very good suggestions and gave many creative alternatives. I am completely happy with my new kitchen and would not hesitate to recommend her to others. She made the entire process fun.

Wow — I’m almost sorry our renovation adventure is over. You made it a fun and seamless experience.
Friends warned me that something would go wrong — cost overruns, delays, etc. But I did not have that experience with Cornerstone Kitchens. Your drawings came in within a week and I could see that you had listened to my ideas carefully. I also greatly appreciated your guidance and input from your diverse background in the field of kitchen and bath design. You thought of things that would never have occurred to me, and boy, did they make a difference!
You came in on budget, and on time — what a pleasant surprise in a field where that is apparently frequently not the case.
I also loved having access to both of you easily on the phone and in your store front office. That made a difference. It was nice to drive down after work and pick out some stylish accessories without having to drive across bridges. Even though I did a fair bit of that myself (it was my first large reno and I had to know what was available), in the end I confirmed in my own mind what you had told me from the beginning — that your store front showcased much of the best that was ‘out there’ in one convenient location. I could have saved myself the time!
Again, thanks for your prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, and frankly excellent service. I have no hesitation in returning to you for my next big reno — the kitchen. See you in a couple of years….
From daunting to delightful, my kitchen renovation experience exceeded my expectations! Initially, I had no idea where to start but once I took that first step and called Cornerstone, the pieces just fell naturally into place. Communication is paramount in such a major undertaking so it was a pleasure to work with Arlie and her team of down to earth professionals, who were organized and knowledgeable, who listened well, paid attention to detail and executed my wishes brilliantly with great design ideas and suggestions, as well as sticking to all-important timelines and budget. I really felt that they cared about the project as much as I did from start to finish – they were always available to me as it unfolded.
My small condo kitchen is now modern, functional and efficient with no wasted space and I couldn’t be happier!
