Elegant Interior Doors

Great design is all about the details, especially when it comes to the basics. Interior doors are often overlooked, as they are everyday items. We don’t think about them much, as we go about our day. However, step back for a moment and look at your home. Spend a bit of time looking at the details.

Take an objective look at your washroom door, bedroom door, or closet door. How does it enhance or match the overall look of your room or home? Do your current interior doors look cheap and standard? If you are considering a remodeling project, what kind of doors would appeal most to you, giving you the look you want for your renovation?

If you are looking for a change, here are some aspects to consider:

Style of Millwork

You can blend the style of your interior doors with the rest of the house, or they can be matched to your cabinetry design for a highly sophisticated look. You can also choose to create a statement piece or pieces with your interior door selection. Instead of purchasing something basic and boring, why not have a little fun or do something thoughtful or different? You can make a big statement and bring character to your indoor spaces by integrating specially designed doors into your interior design.

Design Trends

Choosing a new door design opens up myriad possibilities in terms of style. For example, one option that has become popular in Europe is to use Italian doors that are flush with the drywall, using hidden hinges. Barn doors have also made a comeback, as they are versatile and can look more elegant and interesting than pocket doors. Hidden doors are another great design choice, working especially well for kitchens and mudrooms.

Interior Door Hardware

There are many possible finishes available to help create the right mood and look for your interior doors. From black matte to brass, and many options in between, you can customize hinges, pulls and handles, and wheel tracks to match the look and level of sophistication that you desire.

Door Materials

Wood veneer is always a popular choice. Glass doors are timeless and elegant. Lacquered doors bring a modern touch. There are many options available for materials, weight, textures, and colours to get just the right look for your home.


At BFJ Designs, we have a wide selection of Italian doors to choose from. Speak with one of our designers about your preferences, and we will be happy to help you find exactly the right interior door designs for your home. Whether you want a classic, elegant look or a highly sophisticated and sleek modern style, something casual with a handcrafted flair, or something else, we can help you.

Kitchens for High Rises and Multifamily Projects

Are you considering a kitchen renovation in a tight space, perhaps in a condominium? Are you building a multi-family project that needs a high-quality, eco-friendly solution made just for a contemporary condo layout?


Efficient Design Without Compromising Quality and Style:

As condo living becomes more popular for young families with children, it’s important to utilize a smart design that incorporates as much useable cabinet space as possible.

Smart, efficient design does not have to be devoid of personality and elegance. Although a tight space can create a design challenge, a designer and kitchen supplier who can think outside the box will be important in problem-solving your storage capacity issues. You can have a sleek, distinctive design that accommodates the storage space needed for a growing family, without compromising style, quality, or useability.

Functionality and a unique look can be combined effectively with the right kitchen design. This is just the kind of challenge we enjoy tackling here at BFJ Design.


Common Issues in Condo Kitchen Designs:

  • Condo kitchens often have shorter ceilings than those found in houses and townhouses.
  • There are often restrictions for plumbing and electrical work.
  • A condo kitchen area can include tight spaces or unusable spaces unless the layout is well-designed.
  • Poor quality materials can easily wear and break down quickly in tight spaces.
  • If the design is poor, it can be hard to move around in a small condo-sized kitchen.

We take advantage of top-of-the-line technology and supply compact and spacious kitchens that fully utilize tight areas. Our multi-family line of products is catered towards developers and designers who require ordering large volumes of kitchen cabinets.


Eco-Friendly, Sleek Solutions:

Our factory is green-certified. It’s powered by solar panels and our factory is both Carb 2 compliant and FSC certified. As we are very health conscious, the amount of formaldehyde (glue) we use is at the lowest possible levels. Every step of our design and building process is analysed carefully to meet our environmentally friendly requirements.

You’ll find that the quality of our cabinets is exceptional. We are very proud of our production standards, and we know you will be impressed by our kitchen cabinetry products and solutions.

Italian Kitchen Cabinets

How do you feel when you walk into your kitchen? More importantly, how do you want to feel? These two questions are at the heart of any kitchen remodel. You need to feel comfortable in your kitchen, able to move freely, like you would in a perfectly fitted outfit.


BFJ Design looks at kitchen design through new eyes, creating functional kitchens that feel comfortable while looking elegant. When you work with a design professional to help ensure you feel this way in your new kitchen, you’re more likely to get exactly what you’re hoping for, on time and on budget.


Why An Italian Kitchen

When a country is known for some of the most delicious food in the world, you can’t help but expect them to also have the best kitchens in the world. This article focuses on what makes Italian kitchen cabinets special and why BFJ Design is the best design shop in the Vancouver area to help design your luxury kitchen.


Must Be Seen In Person

For many, the first time they see a luxury Italian kitchen is in a catalogue, or online (our Pinterest page does have some great ideas for you). But even the best photographers can’t capture the beauty seen in the details of an Italian kitchen. Nor can the luxury be felt until it’s experienced in person.


That’s why BFJ Design has collected the most desired cabinetry, appliances, faucets, and flooring for our 4,000 square foot showroom in downtown Coal Harbour. Once you see how luxurious an Italian kitchen is in person, and feel the quality that goes into every piece, you’ll be excited to start designing your dream kitchen.



Seemless Design For Any Space

The Labirinto Project (pictured here) can be configured to fit in any kitchen. Just imagine, customized Italian cabinets with the option for pullout trays, simple swing doors or pocket doors. This not only helps improve the look of your kitchen but its functionality as well. 


The drawers and doors of these quality cabinets keep their modern, sleek design by not requiring hardware. Instead, your cabinets open with a single, gentle push; a recessed handle grip is also part of the design.


Hidden In Not So Plain Sight

Another elegant feature of an Italian kitchen is the use of space. Appliances big and small can be hidden behind beautiful, rich cabinets. Doors can open to tuck into their own pockets, creating an even more accessible space for cooking and dining. With an Italian kitchen you’ll be surprised by what you see, as well as what you don’t see.


Beautiful And Green

It may be hard to believe that such a quality, beautiful product is also sustainable, but that’s the best part. BFJ Design is committed to bringing your designs and ideas to life, in the most eco-friendly way. One of the reasons we’re able to do this is because we chose our manufacturing partners with great care. We only work with leaders in the industry who are also committed to sustainability and protecting the environment.


Our facilities are also run from 100% solar energy.  Being FSC and Carb 2 certified is something we take much pride in.
