Distinctive Designs
"Our philosophy at Distinctive Designs is that a well-designed space is more than aesthetics; it’s also a highly functional space and it’s a unique reflection of who lives, works and entertains in that space." - Melanie Martin C.I.D. Founder + Lead Designer

In order to create such a space, before the design process begins, we take the time to understand your needs, your lifestyle and your personality by asking the right questions, listening and observing. Distinctive Designs' award winning team of professionals draw on their experience, knowledge and creativity to provide you with the best possible solution that suit your unique needs, style and budget. With our team-player attitude, we strive in creating synergy between all parties involved in the design process. We work with an extensive network of experienced trades people and reputable suppliers in order to offer you superior workmanship and quality products.

The benefits to you when working with us are that we will create a better environment for you; we will reduce your stress often associated with new construction, renovations, design and decorating; and lastly, we will save you money by eliminating costly mistakes. While we pride ourselves in having a strong work ethic and take our work seriously, we’re a pretty laid back and unpretentious bunch who like to have fun while working, which means you’ll also have fun working with us! So give us a call or send us an email. We would love to meet you and discuss your project. We are passionate about creating Distinctive Designs!
