The William Standen Way

Our goal is for you to love where you live. We guide you through an unparalleled process, transforming your entire home into a long-term personal sanctuary. Room by room we deliver inspired interiors, work with all required permits, Ontario Building Codes and design standards. Our expert team delivers seamlessly executed renovations, capable of handling your whole home.

Designing your dream home, whether you’re transforming an existing structure into your perfect retirement home or building new, requires an enormous amount of attention to detail. These details need to be worked out long before construction begins, to ensure that your dream space is not only fully functional for your needs, but that is meets building codes and regulations. Working with William Standen Co. means that the detailed planning of your whole home remodel is more enjoyable and less worrisome, accounting for all the little things that can really make the difference in your new space.
Whether you’re looking to design your bedroom, family room or dining room, our design team has the experience and the skill to deliver to you a space that is as striking as it is functional. We follow access guidelines, Ontario building codes and foundational design knowledge so that your space serves you well.
Once our team gets to know you and your family’s desires and needs, we dive into our unique design process to produce awe-inspiring results. Our designers will deliver a space that is as functional as it is beautiful, taking all of the details into account. If your space features a large piece of artwork, our team thinks about weight load, backing in the wall and how it will be illuminated. When choosing lamps and fixtures for your space, we think about outlets and cord lengths, because proper interior design requires both skill and creative talent. Anyone can add home decor to a room, but considering how something looks and functions at the same time makes an enormous difference.
Our design skills and services don’t end with kitchen and bath design. We also offer
total bedroom design, helping to complete your home with tailor-made custom
upholstered or solid wood bedroom suites, bedroom furniture, eco-friendly mattresses,
organic sheets and bedroom furnishings. We will create a stunning bedroom
oasis to complete the look and feel of your home.
William Standen Co.™ specializes in barrier-free spaces that are both accessible and
beautiful. We’re committed to creating safe, functional spaces for our clients. Our
designers participate in unique accessibility training programs so that we can properly
design spaces for aging-in-place and wheelchair access. The result is an informed and
compassionate approach to design, where every design detail is optimized for function and ease of use.

Finding the right piece of art for your space can be a daunting task. The right colours, size, thickness and how the piece of art will display and be illuminated will all be taken into account when working with our team. We will put the finishing touches on your interior space with our lines of ready-made, custom and original artwork.
Our in-house construction and production team works hand-in-hand with our design team to create your dream living environment. Our project manager will be your renovation guru and our team is with you every step of the way. From design to completion, you will experience the ease of dealing with one company for every element of your project, making the process and overall experience less stressful and more fun. Our highly skilled renovation and construction staff are able to deliver unique renovations and additions while allowing you to relax and enjoy watching your new dream home come together.
A home renovation project is not complete without exquisitely crafted cabinetry and millwork. Our cabinetry is made from the finest materials and finishes, made with the highest quality craftsmanship, always designed specifically to suit you. We go above and beyond environmental standards during the creation stage to ensure that your interior’s air quality and integrity is never compromised.

From designing and building custom bookshelves, closet built-ins, entertainment nooks, bars and custom dining banquettes, our team has you covered. We can design and build any custom built-in from one of our 90+ species of wood and hundreds of colour options.

Furniture design and selection can be one of the most important yet deceiving parts of furnishing your home. It's not as easy as homeowners often think it will be and you can go wrong as fast as you can go right. With furniture stores on almost every corner, it can be incredibly overwhelming to make the right selections for your home and we believe that taking the right amount of time upfront can save you energy and money in the long run.
Our process eliminates having to drive around looking for perfect pieces that often just don’t exist or don't fit your room. Our designers will custom-design the perfect piece for you, and our Canadian crafts specialists will bring it to life. From solid hardwood frames, and exquisite fabrics, our custom, Canadian-made and eco-friendly furniture is next-level luxury.

William Standen Co.™ carries lines of customizable sofas, chairs, dining room and bedroom furniture. From traditional to sleek and contemporary, we have every style covered. We believe good furniture matters; it should speak volumes about your personal style and perform in perfect silence.

We also carry a wide range of durable, built-to-last designer sinks, faucets and plumbing fixtures for your kitchen, bathroom or custom shower. Our design team will guide you through your choices and will provide suggestions so that you don't have to sift through thousands of options on your own.
Whether you’re in search of complementing home decor, area rugs, lamps, artwork, window coverings or accessories, our design team will help put the finishing touches on your project with our innovative and unique line of curated home goods.

Our design studio boasts hundreds of luxury fabrics for our custom-made draperies. From lush velvets to silks and cottons, our collections of fabrics are sure to impress. Our California-style shutters are made in Canada and our fabric window treatments are crafted locally.

As part of our line of curated home goods, we offer hundreds of designer area rugs. From wool to silk, and environmentally friendly materials and dyes, our designers will complete your interior with a rug perfectly paired to your other decor and furniture. A splash of colour or naturally neutral, our selection is like no other.

William Standen Co.™ carries complete lines of residential flooring. Our design team will specify the best flooring options for your space based on your requirements. From solid wood to engineered hardwood and luxury vinyl, our products are durable, innovative and carry industry-leading warranties, as well as indoor air quality and environmentally responsible certifications.
Eliminate dangling cords running from your lamps to the nearest outlet, or glare coming from a ceiling light placed in the incorrect spot: When it comes to making selections such as lamps or fixtures, we will carefully plan where outlets are needed. Our process covers the aesthetics and the construction components so that your space actually works. We offer full collections of residential light fixtures and products to complete your home.
William Standen Co.™ provides everything you need to ensure that your space is always strategically lit and shown in its 'best light.'
William Standen Co.™ prides itself on our construction and building methods. From waterproofing systems, framing, drywall work and ventilation, we ensure that our projects meet our own high standards of excellence. Why? Because we genuinely care that the project is completed professionally with a high attention to detail and quality.
