an internationally published and multiple awarded interior design studio

From large-scale renovations to simple one-room makeovers, COREY KLASSEN INTERIOR DESIGN will reflect your personal style with expertise and professionalism. CKID is a full-service interior design studio that specializes in kitchen and bathroom design in conjunction with their adjoining living spaces. We are often found creating that one-off piece for our Clients because standard doesn’t always fit every mould, but with a wide selection of exclusive designer furnishings, custom window coverings, locally-made cabinetry, and fitted architectural detailing, our pre-vetted suppliers and makers are at the top of their fields. We work with homeowners, Contractors, and Allied Professionals in the Metro Vancouver area and across Canada.

Client Testimonials

Corey’s attention to detail was outstanding. He provided very detailed specifications with precise measurements, exact product selections, paint colors, etc. This design ‘bible’ proved to be invaluable for the contractor during the construction phase.
— Bevan, Vancouver
Corey designed our kitchen to fit my accessibility needs, with lower countertops, drawers and pullouts to make it wheelchair friendly. We couldn’t be happier with our new kitchen. Corey was a pleasure to work with, always showing up with a smile and a great attitude and was very patient and helpful with my requests, decisions, changes, and ideas. I would recommend this company to anyone doing renovations!
— Gillian, Coquitlam
You’re really saving your money using his expertise. He takes care of the details so you can stay sane with the whole process. An active listener, he is also very mature, encouraging, professional and really fun to work with. He’s won multiple awards so we consider our kitchen a winner too! The whole process was totally stress-free, we’re so happy with the turnout and felt really, really good with our decision to have him design our kitchen for us.
— Charity, Richmond
My wife Patti and I met Corey when we decided to renovate our condo at the Wall Centre. My wife thought that she would be the designer and Corey would advise. However, Corey had some wonderful ideas and we felt that this guy is good. Corey got along with the two of us so well and if we suggested something he would take that idea and make it so much better.
