Working with Tegan at Locale Designs has been a most rewarding experience. When we first approached her we had no idea the creativity and expertise she would bring. She listened to our ideas, coordinated them with designs and colors that went above our expectations. In the end we have a spectacular kitchen and an amazing bathroom. She has been there every step of the way and provided guidance and assistance. We couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. So many thanks to you Tegan; I’m very excited to start our next adventure with you.

“Tegan's design met all of our needs and wants, she designed an exceptional product in a limited space.”

We had Tegan design and implement a new kitchen in our almost 40 year old home. Tegan came to us with a design that completely met our needs as a family, as well as our budget. After going over the proposed timeline and the design itself, Tegan and her crew got to work. Tegan, as well as her crew, including her husband, Nik, were courteous and understanding of our needs during the renovation. Her team was always polite and professional  and exceeded our expectations.  Tegan's design met all of our needs and wants, she designed an exceptional product in a limited space. Thank you to Tegan, Nik and her team of professionals.  We would highly recommend Tegan at Locale Designs.

I loved working with Tegan from Locale Designs. It was great to have her expert eye and advise. Even when I started to second guess my choices halfway through the project Tegan was great to give me the reassurance that it would all go as planned. Just to have that expertise made our renos go so much smoother. Thanks Tegan!

“I would highly recommend Locale Designs when it comes to planning your next renovation.”

Over the past four years or so, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Tegan on a variety of projects. Whether it be a bathroom, a kitchen, or even a laundry/utility room, her planning and attention to every detail is second to none. Each job is meticulously laid out well before I even set foot in the door which makes my job a whole easier, ultimately making for a happier client when the job is complete. I would highly recommend Locale Designs when it comes to planning your next renovation.

I have been working with Tegan from Locale Designs while we have been building our home.  I am grateful to have her expertise.  She helped me narrow down the overwhelming task of choosing coordinating flooring, backsplash and paint colors as well as other decisions that I needed to make.  Tegan is enjoyable to work with and available to answer any questions I have.

Locale Designs helped turn my small, awkward-shaped living room into a gorgeous, functional space.  I was given so many original and perfect suggestions, and just the right amount of guidance when faced with choices to achieve a room that truly fits my style.  I highly recommend Locale Designs for friendly, knowledgeable, professional service.

"We loved working with Tegan and are happy to give her our wholehearted endorsement."

Tegan worked with us for approximately 6 months –transforming our outdated kitchen and our basement kitchenette and bar area into the space we had only dreamed of.  She listened to our ideas, but also brought her own original thoughts to the table. Throughout the renovation she displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility and enthusiasm. She is dedicated to her craft and is meticulous to detail. Tegan has a friendly, outgoing attitude that she easily maintains while remaining solution focused.  She has great communication, listening and organizational skills which kept us on time and on budget. Furthermore, she worked effectively with all the trades people involved with our renovation—always making time to be available to get the job done efficiently and professionally.
We are ecstatic about the results Tegan achieved. It is a true testament to her talent that relatives, friends and guests who visit our renovated home are in awe of the transformation.

Anyone who has started up a business knows how stressful it can be.  Tegan Derksen is the one you want to hire for all your contract needs.  She has a skill to see how to take an existing wall and change the layout to maximize your square footage, then she puts it into a draft for the contractor. Her measurements are accurate and complete. The end result was our business functions very well within the square footage we had to work with. Her expertise does not lie there. She facilitated in helping us pick out our colours and decor as well as offer up ways we can achieve our look and cut our expense.  Tegan has a listening ear which goes with communication and she always heard what we were asking and she performed. We highly recommend Tegan to anyone taking a building and making it into a business.

From taking us to pick out flooring, lighting, tile, to lining up the best contractors, she had it all under control. Nothing alarmed or surprised her. Her organization, expertise and professionalism was bar none. We were more than satisfied with our experience and would highly recommend her workmanship.
