1. Niche reDesign
Range of Services: Full service remodels, interior design, project management
Address: 23 Chaparral Cres SE, Calgary, Alberta, T2X 3K7, Canada
Contact Details: 403-998-6427, firstname.lastname@example.org
Office Hours: Monday to Friday: 9AM to 5PM
We were glad to have found Niche reDesign because, for nine consecutive years, they won the Best Houzz Awards for Design and Service. For us, this impressive feat highly speaks about their expertise in home design.
It’s also noteworthy that Sylvia Daoust, the founder, has mastered designing small residential spaces into functional and stylish areas. So, if you don’t know what to do with those small rooms in your home, you can count on her to make them useful.
What we like most is their Full Service Remodel package, which starts with the concept up to the completion of the project. You only need to tell them your ideas, and the interior designers will take care of everything.
Additionally, this package includes installation because they have a team of trades carrying out all the work. We also appreciate that they hire only vetted qualified tradespeople to ensure the quality of work for each project.
But if you only want their designs, they also have a package available for that. In fact, they will provide you with drawings to get you started.
Another thing we like about Niche reDesign is how they prioritise the client’s budget when planning a design. We were told they managed to stay within the budget while delivering outstanding results.
Moreover, we’re happy with their reasonable prices. A kitchen renovation can start at $30,000, and a basement renovation begins at $40,000.
We find that their rates and packages are affordable because the average renovation can cost between $20,000 to $100,000. These include the demolition, removal, and a full-design plan with custom cabinets and decor.
We like their design consistency too. Upon seeing Niche reDesign’s portfolio, we found that they have sleek and clean aesthetics that also gives emphasis to functional space.
The only disadvantage we noticed is they focus more on remodels. We found that most of their interior design works are for renovation rather than new builds.
We heard positive feedback from past clients regarding their professionalism and quality of work. We believe these qualities are essential when hiring one of the best interior designers.
2. Aly Velji Designs
Range of Services: Consultation package, new home build design, renovation and decor, virtual room design
Address: 4032 7 St SE, Calgary, AB T2G 2Y8
Contact Details: (403) 617-2406, email@example.com
Office Hours: Monday-Friday: 9AM-5PM, Saturday-Sunday: Closed
|Nice Local Reviews||4.5/5|
At the helm of Aly Velji Designs is Alykhan Velji, a renowned interior design expert. This firm has been providing interior design services to residential and commercial properties in Calgary and its surrounding areas for the past ten years.
A design aspect we’re most impressed with is Velji’s style of mixing different aesthetics, patterns, and textures. He ensures that everything is unique and has a timeless look.
As for his experience, we’d like to highlight that he’s a resident design expert on The Marilyn Denis Show on CTV. Furthermore, he has also designed a capsule furniture collection with Mobilia.
Aly Velji Designs has several interior designers on its team. Unfortunately, if you prefer Velji’s style, you might not get to consult with him personally during busier times.
Another thing we like about this firm is their consultation package which is perfect for clients who are into DIY projects. Aly Velji Designs provides a one-hour walkthrough with a design guide, floor plan, and a personalised shopping list for this service.
On the downside, we were disappointed that they only offer one design consultation and one site visit for new home builds. We feel that they can add more assistance for possible revisions.
Another service they provide is their Remote Control package, a virtual consultation for clients living outside of Calgary. After a phone or virtual consultation, the client will receive a detailed plan, photos, a shopping list, and a floor plan.
We must mention that they charge more expensive rates than others on our list. We also find the added charge for communication to be a hindrance for some clients.
Range of Services: Free discovery call, 2-hour in-home consultation for new home build or renovation, designer by your side, paint consultation, gift design
Address: 2739 Conrad Dr NW, Calgary, AB T2L 1B3

Cat Hackman, the owner of Room4Refinement, is a Certified Interior Decorator. She has provided homeowners with a stylish and welcoming design.
We’re impressed that Room4Refinement has won the Best of Houzz Award for Design from 2015 to 2022. When it comes to expertise, potential clients can feel at ease due to their performance.
Furthermore, we like that they try to save on material costs by using existing furniture and decor. If you prefer to keep certain older items in your home, upcycling them may be a good idea.
Another thing we like is their several consultation packages. They even offer a free Discovery Call as an initial talk about the client’s project.
Notably, Room4Refinement charges a $400 plus taxes fee for a two-hour in-home consultation. We found their rates reasonable because similar services usually charge $500 plus taxes.
But if you need additional consultation time, they will only charge in increments of two hours. For subsequent meetings, you will need to purchase their two-hour package again, which has to be booked two weeks in advance.
Some clients may find this expensive because the charges will increase over time. We hope they can add thirty-minute to one-hour increments for shorter meetings.
Moreover, they charge the same fee for a paint consultation in an already occupied home. We find this a bit steep compared to another service on our list.
We understand that some clients can have difficulty visualising the space, so we like that they create a 3D room design for a more accurate view of the end product.
On the downside, Room4Refinement only services residential areas, so businesses might have to look elsewhere. Nonetheless, we’re impressed with their expertise and quality of work.
4. Monique Shaw Lux Interiors
Range of Services: Express and curated interior design, home staging, Christmas and holiday decoration, shopping service, moving and storage services
Contact Details: (403) 926-4603, email@example.com
Office Hours: Monday to Friday: 9AM-5PM
|Canada Reviewers Reviews||5/5|
Monique Shaw, the founder and lead interior designer of Monique Shaw Lux Interiors, is a qualified Certified Staging Professional (CSP) and a fully trained interior designer. Earning this means she’s had the training to operate a successful staging business.
We found it impressive that she has been featured multiple times on TV and in print for her talents in decorating and staging. She has also published her book, “How To Style Or Stage Your Home For More Beauty Or A Quicker Sale.”
We think this firm has a reasonable price of $350 for a two-hour phone or online consultation. Aside from providing design plans, this will also include ordering materials from suppliers.
Another thing that we like is their home staging consultation that lasts from one to a half hours. We find this reasonably priced at $199 and is suitable for people looking to sell their homes.
They also offer moving and storage services, which we found ideal for those who do not want the hassle of looking for a different provider.
Notably, they offer a Christmas decorating and shopping service. We think this is a great service if you need help decorating your home for the holidays.
We also found it impressive that they repurpose and recycle whenever possible – perfect for clients looking for eco-conscious options.
The only disadvantage we find is they don’t have a full remodel service. Moreover, they don’t have trade partners for installation and construction, unlike the other interior design firms on our list.
5. Get It Together
Range of Services: Renovation design, design work session, paint consultation, online design and interior planning
Contact Details: (403) 813-0067, firstname.lastname@example.org
Office Hours: Monday to Friday:9AM-5PM, Saturday-Sunday: By appointment only
Interior designer Sheri Bruneau founded Get It Together to focus on design renovation. She has more than ten years of experience in the field and promises to deliver quality within any budget.
We’re impressed that they are three-time winners of the Best Houzz Awards for Service. They’re also a Maria Killam Certified True Colour Expert, which gives them knowledge in choosing and distinguishing colours in a space.
We like that they offer a free Renovation Discovery Session. This service is a one-hour site visit to discuss all the details needed for the potential renovation project.
On the other hand, Get It Together has Design Work Session for those who need a more thorough design consultation. This option costs $425 for two hours, but we’re glad this price already includes the design for any number of rooms.
But if you need even more time, there’s an hourly rate of $150 plus taxes to be billed at the end of the session.
However, we’re slightly disappointed that her Design Work Session can only be booked on Wednesdays and Fridays. Clients may have to rearrange their schedules if they’re unavailable during these days.
Additionally, they have an online design planning priced at $250, which is carried out only via e-mail. Just note that this will only include a guided list of product suggestions without 2D or 3D renderings.
It’s also worth mentioning that they offer Paint Consultation services done online. We found it relatively cheaper since it only costs between $120 to $210.
However, we’re just iffy that this paint consultation service is only via e-mail. Since paint can look different in photos than in person, we feel that the colours may not match properly depending on the camera and lighting.
Finally, we hope they can add package plans for new home builds, where design plans will usually take a longer time. Currently, they are more focused on renovations and paint consultations.
6. Premise Design
Range of Services: Consultation (Information, Design Solutions & Ideas), Residential Design (Renovations, Passive House, Retrofits), Commercial Design (Medical Clinics, Offices, Multi-family)

In our opinion, Premise Design is one of the best interior designers in Calgary.
The designer here, Melinda, is a highly experienced interior designer that’s been in the industry for more than two decades.
She’s also NCIDQ certified, and a member of both Interior Designers of Alberta and Interior Designers of Canada.
Her experience includes designing a range of small to multi-million-dollar projects in residential, commercial, hospitality, retail, and health-care.
We think she’d be perfect for you if you’re looking to renovate your home because this is what she’s most passionate about.
What we like about her is how she incorporates her love and passion for design into creating spaces that would also better the environment and our health.
It’s a very personal experience for her because of she went through a life-altering car accident that made her realize how bad design adversely affects our health, and on the other hand, how good design helps better our well-being.
We think she has all the qualities you’d want in a designer—a problem solver, collaborative, honest, authentic, level-headed, detailed, and sensible.
The services Melinda offers are Consultation (Information, Design Solutions & Ideas), Residential Design (Renovations, Passive House, Retrofits), and Commercial Design (Medical Clinics, Offices, Multi-family).
We love how her concept employs sustainable and realistic design for healthy, eco-friendly homes that are great for well-being.
While having a modern, classic design, we like that her designs still remain functional, comfortable, and of high quality. What’s more is the designs she creates are also future-proofing so they’re timeless and low maintenance.
She offers free call to get you started and everything goes smoothly from there.
We find that it’s a joy to work with her and we highly recommend!

This Calgary interior design firm is known for creating modern, affordable spaces.
We think MMID is perfect for those who are looking for such spaces since Michelle specializes in providing affordable design packages for busy young professionals and first time homebuyers!
