Small Living Space Solution: Murphy Beds

August 18, 2014 in Uncategorized by lesley  |  No Comments

We tend to do a lot of work in smaller spaces like smaller sized condos and office spaces. Recently, I have noticed that there are a lot of new furniture stores that accommodate smaller space living. I was extremely impressed with a store called Resource Furniture. To put it simply, they are able to transform one room into another room with dual purpose furniture like murphy beds. When the bed is closed it looks like fashionable, built-in living room furniture.
Macleans magazine wrote a great article on the store: http://www.macleans.ca/culture/a-bookcase-you-can-dine-at-then-sleep-on/

FIXIT Gift Cards – Great Suggestion for Mother’s Day

May 4, 2014 in Uncategorized by lesley  |  No Comments

Giftcards are a great way to say Happy Mothers Day.  Most of our Moms have things that they need done around the home.  FIXIT offers gift cards for special occasions, or any occasion, for that matter.  Many of our clients have received the cards from their real estate agents as house warming gifts. We recently received a call from a new client who was thrilled with her gift card because she was able to use it for a bunch of those small jobs that need to get done when first moving into a home. We painted over some scratch marks caused during the moving process and we hung up mirrors and paintings. Our tradesman also did a walk-through with her and advised her on some options for making some of the improvements she was interested in.  We will also be going back next month to build some custom flower planters for her deck.
Tip: Gift Cards can also be a perfect gift for fathers day. Take some of the jobs off the ‘to do’ list for dad.





Narrow Hallways – Installing Shelves

April 22, 2014 in Uncategorized by lesley  |  1 Comments

When you are living in a smaller unit every inch of space is important. In some of the condo units that FIXIT has worked on, we have seen long narrow hallways. This space isn’t generally a functional part of the unit but some people have made it functional by hanging up shelving or adding narrow tables. Big, bold artwork or trendy wallpaper can also add a great wow factor. Here is a site that I found to be an inspiration for many of my clients. It has a lot of good visual ideas.
This is a great link for ideas:

TIP: Go vertical. Hang shelves for storage space and a splash of colour.narrow hallway
