We recently completed an extensive renovation on our 30 year old rancher. Jamie and his design team have created a bright modern area that includes re-designing of our poorly functioning kitchen into one that is a dream to work in. They were always there to help us make choices in lighting, flooring, appliances and paint colours that helped complete this project with much less stress than if we had tried to on our own.

The Jamie Banfield Design team provided great design concepts and furniture selections for many rooms in my house. While not all selections were budget friendly, the elements were modern, yet timeless and high quality. I also appreciated their professionalism and patience when dealing with the challenges that large renovations can bring. I look forward to seeing the many more beautiful designs that will come from this tea.
I hired JBD to work on our three bedroom rather this year. Our design sales clicked so well it made me trust them completely. The went over and above to do all the install, and they did it with a smile on their face and even included my two young children to "help". I would definitely recommend them and would give then again any day.
Jamie and his team did a great job on a complete renovation of our ocean view condo including the full redesign of our kitchen. Jamie's ideas to change the location of the cabinetry, appliances and island design have resulted in a beautiful and functional new kitchen that first the space perfectly. As new residents to Vancouver, Jamie washable to provide great access to a number of local product suppliers that offered wonderful ideas and the latest designs. We're extremely happy with the end result and pleased to recommend Jamie and his team.

We hired Jamie for the millwork throughout our custom build modern home. We had a challenging project and he was always responsive and committed to ensuring we were happy with the quality of the work. Jamie is professional and honest, we would recommend him highly.
We hired Jamie and his team in 2014 to design our kitchen, bathrooms and laundry in our new home in Furry Creek. We have found Jamie and Valerie to be extremely professional, creative and attentive to our needs, schedule and cost guidelines. We are extremely pleased with the design, functionality, and quality of the final product. We continue to recommended their services to neighbours and friends.
Jamie and his team created a dreamy rustic industrial library with arched wood bench, luxurious live edge slab desk, and reclaimed wood shelving with welded metal supports. Although I had an idea of the direction I would like the room to take, I didn't know where to begin. Jamie started with an inspired design and realistic budget. He constantly surpassed me with great advice and fabulous samples. His sources seem endless - everything from live edge wood slab, metals, ceiling tiles, amazing wallpapers, and unique lighting. I was pleased with all his contractors. Like Jamie, they were on time, knowledgeable, pleasant, and respectful. Jamie has a great sense of humour and a relaxed demeanour. He's a great listener and I appreciate his attention to details. Jamie Banfield Design's turned my humble little idea into a showstopper.
We recently completed a home renovation of our upstairs, including 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, and a staircase. We are pleased with the design advice that Jamie provided us and we are very excited about the finished product. Jamie was very patient with us while he guided us through the renovation. Jamie provided us with a number of design options and challenged us with ideas that we would not have come up with on our own. Our home is now beautifully filled with light, colour, texture and warmth.

Jamie is an excellent designer from the perspective that he thinks out of the box but yet puts a practical spin to his ideas and concepts. He is no prima donna and is always prepped to work to a budget and yet give you an excellent idea, within that. Jamie has an excellent eye for colour and problem solving, and always prepared to go to extra mile to resolve issues. He is very involved right down to the smallest detail and is a firm deliver in getting things done right and does not resort to short cuts, just to make the issue go away. My involvement with Jaime Banfield Designs included the entire re-modelling of a 2 bedroom apartment. Jamie Banfield is a very talented designer that I will have no hesitation in recommending.
Our 26 year old kitchen was dark, dingy and not very efficient. We needed to keep the same footprint and it offered a great view of the garden. The kitchen was to blend with the rest of the house. Jamie took us through the process of planning and design (cabinets, lighting, countertops ext. He also sourced a cabinet maker, cabinet installer and a general contractor. Like Jamie, the trades were very hard working individuals. People who genuinely care about the quality of their work/ product. They worked together like a well oiled machine! Even the suppliers had high praise of Jamie (telling us that he was one of the good guys!)
Jamie was always only a phone call or an email away. If we had questions or had an issue, he was on it immediately. He would oversee every step of the renovation. We love everything about our new kitchen! It is beautiful, bright and efficient. It is so much more than we could have imagined!
It was a pleasure working with Jamie. We would hit him again (and we have). We highly recommend Jamie and his team.

Jamie is one of the most well connected and knowledgeable designers in Greater Vancouver. His creativity, technical knowledge, and understanding of construction & design give him a distinct advantage in the industry. Being connected to suppliers, products, and trades gives his clients the most choice, great pricing, and timely access. For me, professionalism and attention to detail is critical to delivering a space on budget and on time and Jamie goes over and above to make sure that every detail is taken care of. I would not hesitate to recommend Jamie for any scale of project, not to mention have him as an intrinsic part of my personal team of house experts. I only surround myself with experts who are passionate about what they do and Jamie definitely meets that criteria.
Host "Love it or List it Vancouver"
Jamie was commissioned to renovate our kitchen of 17 years that needed updating and design tweaking. He was able to quickly suggest ideas to make the space more functional and at the same time more modern and exciting.
We found Jamie approached the project in a professional manner and was forthright in the planning, setting expectations and outcomes. Throughout the process Jamie was prompt and well organized. He met with us quite frequently as the project evolved and was always available by email or phone for questions or concerns. He always listened to our concerns, returned calls promptly and did not leave us hanging without an answer. The project went as budgeted and any changes were discussed and brought to us for approval.
Jamie was very patient working around our time lines and calm when we had some hesitations. Overall the outcome is very good and I am happy with the total new look in my kitchen. It blends very well with the rest of the home. Jamie did more than expected in some instances like helping with the choices of the appliances, lighting and final esthetics. He kept the whole project moving smoothly meanwhile allowing us flexibility in choosing our trades.
Jamie has the eye for the total lookand is sensitive to the client's expectations. He continues to keep up with the latest products and trends. It was very pleasant working with him and I would not hesitate using his services again.
We had a concept for our new business operating model, which incorporated a special customer service areas, but we couldn't go beyond a traditional "table and chair" scheme in our thinking. This was not a very exciting prospect to us. The subsequent decision to engage professional services led to a search of someone with experience, that fit our needs to the whole and was willing to take on the challenge.
When we explained our concept to Jamie Banfield, he immediately expressed excitement, his first draft allowed us to take our concept to a new level and the rest, as they say, is history.
It has been a pleasure working with Jamie and his team. He does what he says he will do; he definitely goes the extra mile, is pragmatic but very creative and word for a "Cadillac" base with a willingness to temper the design to budgetary limits. Our working meetings were effective and communications among all the members was very good.
We think the result of the project is a showcase and our customer feedback supports that contention. We know we definitely would have not accomplished the project's success with out his ideas, creativity and leadership.

It was a pleasure working with the very talented Jamie Banfield. Jamie designed two new kitchens, two new bathrooms, a living room and a dining room for us. He really listened to what we wanted and completely captured our vision. He offered some excellent design ideas, styles and colours which we totally adapted! His dedication and commitment for the project followed throughout the whole process. The entire project went very smoothly for us and was completed on time and within budget. We have received numerous comments on the design Jamie envisioned and created for our home. We highly recommend working with Jamie and Jamie Banfield Design and look forward to working with him again.
Jamie helped me from the start to the finish of my major kitchen renovation. We went back to the studs. So it was design to completion. My kitchen looks great, Jamie and his team made several visits to the house and to the studio to get it right! Jamie was always available with any questions or concerns we had, Jamie's team took the renovation one step more and helped with finding some furniture in the great room for no extra cost.

We hired Jamie in Nov 2012 to renovate our kitchen and tweak other things in our home. We were very pleased with Jamie’s design of the project and how professional he was in putting it together. We found the trades very good in the work they did and the project was completed on time and on budget. You wouldn’t know it was a renovation as the design was so prefect and beautifully finished. This renovation has definitely added value to our home. All of our visitors to the home comment on the beautiful kitchen.
We were so happy with the work done in our home that in May 2013 we hired Jamie to take care of the design and renovation of our office. Our expectations were exceeded and this project was on budget and on time. Our landlord brings all his perspective new tenants to our office. He call's it his show suite!
We would recommend Jamie Banfield Design. Jamie is easy to work with and delivers excellent results.

I would like to thank you and your team for the wonderful projects you completed for us recently. I had a room full of pictures, memorabilia, furniture and I had no idea where to begin! Your combined efforts worked to bring the room together into the gorgeous, professionally decorated space that it is now.
Quite a few of the pieces were sentimental and I really appreciate how you tactfully allowed me to keep some items but encouraged me to put some other things away for a while. The final result is absolutely stunning!!! I could never have imagined how you would pull it all together and achieve the result that you did. I am thrilled to finally showcase my beautiful treasures. Everything is displayed so much better with that a profession touch.
The trades you work with were a pleasure and suppressed my expectations. As for the quality the end result speaks for itself!
When people enter the room now,I can hear them say "Wow! This is amazing" From the beautiful walnut wall unit, pictures professionally frames and placed and memorabilia displayed... it is truly spectacular. I am more proud of this room (that used to be an embarrassment) than any other room in the house. I will not hesitate to recommend you to others and will certainly be calling you to help with our room in the future.
Jamie created his magic and turned our basic kitchen into a functional facility that is not only a pleasure to work in but an artistic creation, admired by all those that view the completed project. Jamie's eye for display resulted in our placing our multitude of art work in pleasing and interesting groupings.
I explained to Jamie my ideas of what I thought would be a great kitchen in our space and he went with them. He didn't tell me that they wouldn't work or was to difficult like the other designers had. Instead he worked them into a fantastic kitchen design taking his experience he tweaked my ideas to create a very functional and good looking space. Jamie appeared to enjoy being creative and liked a challenge.
I presented Jamie with a hood fan design from a magazine that starting this whole kitchen renovation, jamie thought it would look good in our space with a few adjustments he created an overall concept and design that was inspired by this hood fan.
The other night I looked at the magazine again and I thought that Jamie's hood fan design was much nicer than the magazine! I can't believe how beautiful my kitchen is! It looks more than "beautiful" it looks "incredible" and magazine worthy.
