“We had the pleasure of working with Sarah and Shauna on the construction of our new home. After first assessing our style and needs, they proceeded to work through the construction process with minimal changes to their design and material selections. We had a lot of fun working with them and found them always thoughtful, mindful, and professional. We would highly recommend their firm and would use them again without hesitation. Thank you Sarah and Shauna for making our new home so amazing!”
-Diane and Vince Grdina, West Vancouver- Custom Home (Completed 2014)
“We were introduced to Sarah by a business partner of mine, as she was doing some work on his home at the time. We were immediately impressed with her ability to assess our needs and understand the type of home my wife and I wanted for us and our 3 boys. Her attention to detail is flawless and every inch of our fully renovated home is thoroughly thought through. Our home is spectacular and everyone that ever steps foot in our house is always shocked at how beautiful it is. Most people think it is a new home (not a renovation) since as it is so put together and properly planned, inside and out. We have referred Sarah and her team to several friends in the last year, and they are all just as happy as we are with the results. Not only are they good at what they do, the team at SGDI are all around good people that you really enjoy working with, which to me is a very important thing. I felt like they cared about our home as much as we the homeowners did. We consider Sarah and Rob Gallop more than just people we do business with, we consider them good friends. I cannot say a bad thing about SGDI, they are fantastic!“
-Pete Rackow, Maple Ridge- Whole home renovation with substantial additions (Completed 2013)
“Sarah and I met in 2012 when I began thinking about renovating my home. I had heard goods things about her, but had never worked with a residential designer before, so I was skeptical to say the least. I was impressed not only by her design ability, but also with her level of construction knowledge. I have heard that a lot of designers are good at making things pretty, but are not that great at understanding how things are actually built- Sarah is fantastic at both. As in any large renovation, there were unforeseen issues that popped up in construction, but Sarah and her team were able to troubleshoot and design on the fly to ensure that everything still worked out perfectly. I always joke that I only made 1 really important decision in my whole renovation, and that was hiring Sarah. I now consider the team at SGDI friends more than I consider them designers that I hired. I look forward to doing it again with the SGDI team and I recommend them to anyone and everyone I know without hesitation.”
-Lawrence Green, Delta- Whole home renovation with additions (Completed 2013)
“Sarah and her team helped us through the process of building our first house. They were so valuable and we couldn’t have done it without them. They were always professional and timely and not to mention patient with my zillion questions and my last minute indecisive freak outs as a first time home builder. They also really respected our budget when it came to choosing finishings. If a suggestion was made to splurge a bit on one item there was always a follow up recommendation on where we could save a bit to stay on budget without compromising quality. So happy with the result!! Thanks Sarah and team!”
-Scott & Laura Jeffery, Vancouver- Custom Home (Completed 2013)
“Sarah and her team helped us from the inception of our new house, from input on architectural drawings, through to assistance with flooring, tiles, cabinetry, millwork, lighting, plumbing, and colour palette, and finally through to furniture selection. Sarah had the ability to listen to and interpret our ideas even when they probably were not that clear. She and her team gently guided us away when we were in retrospect about to make a mistake. She was flexible and open to ideas and changing courses if required. She has a great eye. I have no hesitation in recommending SGDI. It was money well-spent.”
-Barbara Norell & Herman Van Ommen, Delta- Custom Home (Completed 2013)
“We could not be more pleased than we have been in working with Sarah Gallop and her group. The process from design, through sourcing beautiful materials, accounting, engaging an excellent general contractor, implementation and ongoing consultation has been professionally handled with remarkable attention to detail. Sarah is a skilled designer and has remarkable abilities in understanding what we have wanted and making sure that that’s what happens. The results are beautiful and it’s a real pleasure to return to our home at the end of the day.”
-Michael and Pamela Patterson, Delta- Main floor renovation (Completed 2013)
We met Sarah in March of 2012 for a complete renovation of our home that spanned over a year. Sarah was so amazing to work with! We enjoyed each meeting with her and got so much accomplished each time. She always had fantastic ideas and great choices and understood our vision from day 1. We did not have to go to one store to pick out any fixtures, handles, faucets, tile, etc. She brought it all to us and we absolutely love the final results! We couldn’t be happier and would recommend her and her company without hesitation. Thanks Sarah!”
-Galit Ziv & Donny Lucas, Vancouver- Whole home renovation (Completed 2012)
We would like to express our thanks to Sarah Gallop Design for their excellent, professional service. We used them recently for a renovation project on our home and found it flawless. We could have avoided many wasted evenings spent trying to pick proper products and design schemes in our last renovation project if we had of called Sarah Gallop right from the start. Once we enlisted Sarah and her team, our project selections came together quickly and turned out beautifully. I can say wholeheartedly that we would not attempt to plan out another renovation or design of a new home without Sarah’s opinion and help.

Sarah Gallop Design Inc, worked with my wife and I on a gorgeous renovation of both our kitchen and ensuite. From initial proposal discussions through all phases of construction, our experience with Sarah Gallop and her team was thoroughly enjoyable. The kitchen was initially gutted, followed by installation of spectacular new lighting, countertops, cabinets, flooring and a larger, more versatile island. The master ensuite was gutted to allow for a larger shower and more functional vanity space. We are thrilled with our “new” kitchen and ensuite, and would happily and strongly recommend SGDI to anyone looking to renovate their home. We look forward to working with Sarah and her team again on future projects.
- Mark Madryga, South Surrey BC
Our family has enjoyed a working relationship with Sarah Gallop and her team at Sarah Gallop Design Inc. since purchasing our first home in 2010. Our perfect starter home needed some major updating. At purchase time, it felt as though we were walking straight into 1964. Although Sarah and the SGDI team are located in Delta, BC and our home is located in Edmonton, AB she has continued to make our renovation process as seamless as possible. She has always made time for us via telephone or Skype and has coordinated her contacts in the Lower Mainland for us to have enjoyable working relationships with their counterparts in Edmonton. Our 1960’s bungalow has been fully updated with a beautiful main floor open concept and stunning bathroom. I could not have asked for a better experience and we will continue working with Sarah for any future renovations.
- Lori Mathieu, Edmonton Alberta
From design ideas for creative yet practical solutions to a small kitchen space to hands-on project management at every stage of the renovation, Sarah Gallop was inspired to make our kitchen uniquely special to meet our needs while fulfilling our wish list. Sarah made the selection process painless and easy by doing the shopping and providing an array of possibilities chosen to match our request list. The plans were expertly drawn and Sarah provided detailed explanations of every aspect of the design, answering all questions and making modifications and changes during the development stage. Sarah and her staff were available at all times during the construction phase when any questions became apparent and they worked immediately to clarify or rectify any concerns we had along the way. The design of the finished kitchen exceeded our expectations, with the use of built-in curved shelving and custom built cupboards and furniture, all of which are enhanced by the precise placement of lighting and carefully selected tiles and countertop. Our delight with our new kitchen has remained constant every day since it was completed one year ago.
- Sue Pudek, Vancouver BC
Sarah has always displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility, and professional ability. She is definitely a quality designer. She was mindful of the budget and tried to save money whenever appropriate. What we appreciated was her ability to work with the trades to have the project completed within the scope of her designs. We have used Sarah Gallop Design Inc twice in the last year on two separate projects and would do so again for future projects.
- Janine Grant, Ladner BC
It was a real pleasure working with Sarah and the design team at SGDI. From the initial design through to the project finishing it was so exciting. Sarah and her team were very professional, but still kept it fun. Sometimes we thought Sarah knew what we wanted even before we did. If and when we do our next renovation, we will be sure to call Sarah again!
