Our Approach

LHD is a full-service interior design build firm based in Toronto. With our client at the heart of the project, we implement a four-phase approach to ensure that the finished design truly reflects your needs, wants and vision.

Phase 1

Design Drawings and Permit Packages

The first phase of our process is all about functionality. We’ll work together to customize your space to fit your lifestyle perfectly. Our team will create detailed design drawings, complete with floor plans and furniture layouts, to make sure everything fits just right. We will also present high-level design features in key areas using a concept board to ensure the mood of the home matches your vision. Should it be necessary, our team will bring in all the specialists needed to make sure your permit package is ready and approved by the city.

Phase 2

Elevations, Finishes, and Furnishings

Based on the approved concepts, we will move on to selecting finishes and furnishings for the space. This includes selecting materials for flooring, colour schemes, millwork designs, as well as furniture, lighting and accessories. All elements will be presented for approval with finished floor plans and elevations. Next, we review and sign off on the budget so our team can purchase all of the approved goods on your behalf.

Phase 3

Implementation, Construction, and Installation

In this phase, our firm will work with our network of trusted subcontractors and professionals to bring the design to life. This includes overseeing the construction process, managing budgets and timelines, and ensuring that the design intent is being realized. We oversee the installation of all finishes, furnishings, and accessories down to the last throw-pillow.

Phase 4

Quality Assurance

As we reach the end of construction, our team works together to make any needed adjustments or corrections. We employ an intensive quality assurance process to ensure the finished work meets high-quality standards.


Kitchen Renovation

“Lauren Hesse Design Build Firm was a great help in adding more cabinetry to my main floor kitchen and a bar area for entertaining. This incredible addition added much-needed storage and perfectly matched the original cabinetry.”

Main Floor Design Build Enhancement

“Lauren and her team were wonderful to work with. Our project wasn’t home renovation, but her design insight and suggestions were incredibly helpful in increasing the functionality and design of certain areas of our home. She was understanding of our budget and need for practicality given that we have small children.”

Mini Kitchen Renovation

“I contacted Lauren Hesse Design Build to help me rework a kitchen that needed updates. Lauren was lovely to work with and very helpful. Together we chose a new colour scheme for the kitchen and designed some built-ins and shelving for a new storage area. Overall, a great experience!”
