MKL Design Studio Profile:


Building a custom home is a very exciting undertaking. It begins with your dream of creating something that will perfectly fit your personality and lifestyle, fulfill the needs of your family, and bring joy for many years to come. You have found the perfect lot in a wonderful neighbourhood and a great Calgary custom home builder who will help make this dream come true. The architectural drawings are ready, what is next?

For most of our clients, this next step is the most exciting in the entire process of building a custom home. Scrolling through stunning images on Houzz and Pinterest, you are seeing interiors that speak to you on a personal level. You are starting to imagine yourself living in these spaces but are not quite sure how to bring your vision to life. This is where our designers come in and create a plan of how to make your dream spaces a reality.

MKL Design Studio has been collaborating with Sunset Homes since 2017. We have developed a unique interior design process that is clear and straightforward. From organizing meetings with suppliers to guiding you through each selection to documentation – let us take care of the details.

As we begin to design the interior of your new home, we will ask you thousands of questions about how you live and move, some of which may be somewhat intimate, to ensure each space performs for you and your family. There are many elements that need to be addressed during the interior design process – from cabinetry to flooring, to staircases, to lighting, and much more. An experienced designer will help you make sense of all the trades’ lingo and stay on track with the overall look of your home.

And then there is the question of budget… Does a beautiful home need to be expensive? The short answer is no. It does help to know what is most important to you and using that as a compass when making decisions. You will always have our honest professional opinion and guidance when it comes to making sure that your vision aligns with your budget.

Working with an interior designer is like insurance on your investment. For most of us, a house is one of the largest investments we make in our lifetime, so why not get professional advice? Sunset Homes includes a complementary Interior Design package with every contract because they understand the value of good design. MKL Design Studio is an award-winning full scale design firm with projects across Western Canada, we have been designing custom homes for over 25 years.
