DIY Brownstone

That’s right. Brownstone quality and style for the do-it yourselfer. DIY isn’t for everyone, but for those of you who appreciate quality design and custom manufacturing but like to be hands on, we offer DIY Brownstone. We’ll take you through the same customer-centric design process we do with all our clients, and provide the same meticulous fabrication. Then we’ll set you up with the knowledge and tips you need to take your new kitchen or bathroom over the finish line, with your own bare hands!


You have style, discerning tastes, and you know what you want. It all starts with your vision. We won’t just pretend to listen to you and then come back with the same old cookie-cutter design. We’ll channel your dreams and design the complete kitchen or bathroom you want. And we think of everything – from small functional touches that make your life easier, to structural and architectural considerations that make all the difference. Trust The Brownstone with your vision and you won’t be disappointed.

Helpful Tips

1. Getting Started

You might not know exactly what it is you are looking for. Sometimes it can help if you start with more superficial details – developing a feel for what appeals to you and things you would like to see can be a great place to start.

  • Look through magazines and cut out any pictures of kitchens or bathrooms you enjoy
  • Decide whether your new kitchen or bathroom will be part of a design or colour scheme that extends throughout your home.
  • If you have friends or family with particularly appealing kitchens or bathrooms, take photos that can be used as reference.

2. Develop Your Plan

Before we begin the process, consider your current space, prioritize the things that are most important to you. Consider the following questions:

  • What would you most like to change about your kitchen/bathroom?
  • Do you require additional storage space in your current space?
  • Do require additional counter space and/or shelving?
  • How much additional space could you realistically accommodate?
  • Are you happy with your appliances and fixtures?
  • Who will be using the kitchen/bathroom most, and how many at a time?

3. Develop Your Wish List

Once you have your plan together, develop a wish list to share with the team at The Brownstone. This list can form the basis of your new kitchen or bathroom and our designers will work closely with you, offering professional experience and developing the best possible solutions. Remember, your re-design might not be limited to counters and cabinets. You might also need to make space for bigger appliances, additional storage, new lighting and electrical fixtures and more.
