  • (1888PressRelease) January 24, 2013 - Toronto-based design firm Laura Stein Interiors has been awarded "Best Of Houzz" 2013 by Houzz, the leading online platform for residential remodeling and design. Laura Stein Interiors won in the design category and was chosen by the more than 11 million monthly users that comprise the Houzz community.

    "We are thrilled to receive this award from home owners and design enthusiasts," states Laura Stein, Laura Stein Interiors. "The Houzz community has provided me with a unique opportunity to interact directly with its members and it's an honour for our work to be recognized by these users."

    The Best of Houzz winners are acknowledged by the Houzz community for delivering exceptional customer service and results. Design award winners are determined by analyzing the most popular professional images the Houzz community members have saved to their personal ideabooks on the Houzz site or mobile app. Laura's work portfolio included some of the most popular images on Houzz in 2012.

    "Houzz provides homeowners with an in-depth, 360-degree view of building, remodeling and design professionals through images of their work, reviews and an opportunity to interact with them directly in the Houzz community," said Liza Hausman, vice president of community. "We're delighted to recognize Laura Stein Interiors among our "Best Of" professionals for design as judged by our community of homeowners and design enthusiasts who are actively remodeling and decorating their homes."

    Laura Stein Interiors' award-winning space featured in the "Best Of" ideabook was an incredible basement family room. The homeowners had a tall order, with the room needing to serve quadruple duty; they wanted the space to have storage for seasonal clothes, sporting equipment and all the kids' toys. It needed to have an open play area where the girls could move around and space to accommodate larger toys like an art table or dollhouse. The room also needed to serve as a guest room for visiting family and friends, and above all, it needed to be a comfortable, bright, and cheerful family room for everyone to enjoy.

    Laura Stein Interiors designed the area to accommodate all their desires. When guests arrive, the basement family room is quickly converted to a welcoming guest room with a pull-down Murphy bed. Night table trays pull out from the custom built-ins to hold a lamp or glass of water. With ample storage and cupboard space, toys and seasonal clothing can be neatly tucked away leaving plenty of floor room for moving around.
