We sincerely appreciate the kindness of our clients!
When I looked at my basement, knowing that the next few months meant we were all going to be at home working or doing schooling, I was deflated. It was the only space that would work for a catch-all for our lives and it was a mess.
I had no clue as to where to start or even what would work. Then came in Lori from McNeil Design Group. She asked the right questions to identify what was important to me and came up with a plan that would work for the entire family! She brought forth ideas that I hadn’t even thought of and yet made my vision even better!
Her entire team is supportive, creative, and focused on helping me achieve my goals and I would recommend her organization to anyone that is looking to take their space up a notch!
Lori was awesome in helping us turn our fixer upper into a workable /livable space. We spent years scratching our head on how to design the area to put into a bedroom, bathroom and recreational room. Lori solved our problem! Lori helped us "see" how to an open concept design for a living room/dining room/kitchen that is fantastic! Now that I am working from home, Lori was the first call we made to make a home office! She listens to my needs, makes great suggestions that I wouldn't have thought of and is very easy to work with! I am so excited to see what my home office will look like!

I recently had the opportunity to work with the McNeil Design Group on a small office renovation project.
Lori’s efficient use of space, and lighting to create an effective, yet welcoming work environment has impressed me beyond what these few words can easily convey.
I have seen the care she takes with her client, and her attention to detail is manifest in the planning I witnessed.
After this outstanding experience, I will never hesitate to recommend Lori and McNeil Design Group Interiors to any of my colleagues, or clients.

She is passionate about her projects , she gets to know her clients allowing them to reflect their personality and style. I look forward to working with Lori and her team on future projects!

We consider ourselves very fortunate to have found Lori. Honestly, our house was a disaster and we truly do not want to know what actually went through Lori's head when she first saw it! Thanks to Lori and her team we now have a gorgeous, functional, organized home! Lori redesigned our open concept kitchen and living room area, 2 bathrooms and our mudroom hallway. Lori listens to what her clients want and then takes it to the next level. Her creativity blended with her attention to detail produced a beautiful outcome for us. She goes above and beyond to keep her clients happy. The team members are dedicated professionals who work well together and are always striving to meet the clients needs. We definitely recommend MDGI.

We have worked with Lori on projects both interior and exterior. Lori's design skills, planning, and attention to detail are excellent. We have always been very happy with the final product and would highly recommend the McNeil Design Group.
Lori lives and breathes quality design but she also has the practical skills and the skilled trade connections to make your dream a reality. She makes miracles happen. I don't know how manages it time after time but then if I knew it wouldn't be magic!
McNeil Design Group and Lori McNeil-Chong did an amazing job of transforming our 50 year old kitchen and bringing it into the 21st century., while maintaining the traditional feel of our century schoolhouse. Our family loves the seamless functionality of our kitchen now. It is the little details that so impress us: the lemans corner cabinet, the "hidden" extra cabinet space under the breakfast bar... I could go on. Lori's eye for design and colour is outstanding! We are in love with our kitchen re-design!
I absolutely love working with Lori. Her attention to detail and design knowledge surpasses all my expections.
Thank you for your amazing service throughout the years and helping us make our home more beautiful!

The details of this renovation were very important to us, not only visually but functionally as well. Lori from McNeil Design Group was instrumental in coordinating all aspects of the project and suggesting materials and furniture that really fit the room (and our taste!). We're so happy with the way this turned out and have continued to work with Lori to complete our dream renovations.
McNeil Design Group is an absolute pleasure to work with.
Four things come to mind:
*Attention to detail...they take ownership of every detail and ensure a fabulous result
*Communication...they are on top of everything and keep everyone involved well informed
*Positive Attitude...they are friendly, solution-driven
*Knowledgeable...they are a go-to resource for current trends and advice
Without a doubt they are our #1 company to refer to clients!

As a custom cabinet manufacturer, SKCW has worked with McNeil Design Group Interiors on a number of projects. Lori McNeil-Chong's attention to detail and her ability to perceive a client's taste and expectations has been a definite asset.
Lori's experience surpasses many designers as she understands the building process and has the understanding for the realistic placement of such things as appliances, windows, lighting, along with all millwork.
Lori is always prompt to reply when communication is needed for precise measurements, colour and hardware selection, and client consultation.
Lori's professionalism shines in coordinating the timing for installations with all trades people.
Lori's taste is obvious in the finished product and we have witnessed many happy clients.
SKCW looks forward to working with McNeil Design Group Interiors on many future projects.
......Thank you for the design, and trades work that was done in our home.
Now that all the pressure of the work is off our shoulders and we are back from our vacation we have had a chance to really enjoy and appreciate all the effort that went into making "the vision" come to life. Friends and family have come to visit us and have nothing but wonderful things to say about the design choices, the colour choices, the furnishing choices; all beautiful!
Renovation comes with its stressors and pressures; its not easy to live and work while under renovation no matter how big or small, in the whole scheme of our project everything went very well and the finish product very good. We thank you and hope for you many more wonderful projects.
My wife and I were having trouble picking paint colours and a design focus for our new home. We did some research online and found McNeil Design Group Interiors. Lori came in for a consultation, we spent almost 4 hours showing our house and some of our inspirations that we have found. We had tested many colours by painting test patches on different walls, unfortunately none of them looked right in the space. After our meeting Lori presented us with her colour plan and we immediately loved them. We felt like she totally understood our collective style. Her colour plan turned our open concept house into a cohesive unit and fit our style to a tee. I would recommend Lori to anyone that is frustrated with picking paint colours and looking to define their personal style. I look forward to hiring Lori again for our new house.
I used McNeil Design Group Interiors for a colour consultation and was so happy with the results. I was having an incredibly difficult time picking colours for our house and Lori showed us how the existing lighting, flooring and wall colours were conflicting with each other. She really listened and understood our style and selected wall colours that we absolutely love. I would not hesitate to recommend McNeil Design Group Interiors to others and would certainly use them again.
Lori was very easy to deal with. She always returned calls in a timely fashion and answered all questions. Kept me informed of all details. Professional contractors who were also very respectful of my space. Everyone ensured the work areas were clean and safe at all times. Would definitely hire again.

The knowledge and expertise that McNeil Design Group Interiors has is outstanding. Lori is a true professional and very passionate about what she does and has a fantastic sense of design and colour. She had great suggestions in helping pick out our window coverings for our house, which we absolutely love!! Such a huge difference in really brightening up our rooms, making it look fresh and clean!! Thank you!!
Wonderful, Excellent, Fantastic. That's how I would describe McNeil Design Group Interiors. Without Lori's help I don't think we would have gotten half of the decorative jobs done in our last two homes. Lori project-managed the decoration of our basement family room, including the design and installation of a new washroom. She helped is select and install decorative drapes and functional sun resistant blinds. We even used her advice to restore furniture we were going to throw out. The result was amazing. We always use Lori as a colour consultant before any paint job as she always manages to recommend tones and shades that just give the finished result an extra bit of class. We love her and would highly recommend her work.
We had just moved to a new dream home in Orangeville and recognized that our living room and dining room needed a refresh to make it as dramatic in appearance as our recently redone kitchen. While I had a vision of sorts, my husband could not see the end result. We called on Lori to help us figure out our collective style. We were all over the map with our varying tastes. Lori's keen insight picked up on ALL the nuances of each of our commentaries. She created a vast and comprehensive, creative portfolio of ideas for us to choose from, and then helped guide our choices, revealing my "vision" to my husband. The end result of our shared vision was the drama we were looking for. Every time we entertain in our living room and dining room, and field the compliments from our guests we both marvel at how it all came together, and we have Lori to thank for that! I would hire Lori again in a heartbeat!
I have hired Lori of McNeil Design Group Interiors on many occasions over the last 12 years for design and concepts, colour consulting and major renovations for my home and multiple business locations. Lori is the real deal. She comes with knowledge and passion, and cares deeply about getting a satisfactory result every time. She is talented, honest and committed to excellence. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lori and her company to you.
Great attention to detail, knowledgeable, patient and full of excellent ideas & suggestions. True to her word on time frames and prices. Upbeat personality and fun to work with.

I've used McNeil Design Group Interiors on several occasions for both commercial and residential projects. All of Lori's designs have been highly functional and aesthetically immaculate. Lori's intuitive and conscientious approach to both project planning and implementation is that of a designer who truly listens to her client and is driven to deliver a finished product that is bang on.
