Greater Victoria-based designer Daniel D’Sa can help you visualize a new look for your room, whole home or retail space.

Design your dream living space!

Victoria designer can help you create the living or retail space you’ve always wanted

Looking at your living space or retail floor, does it inspire you, or pop with vibrancy that makes you smile?

If that’s the reaction you’d like to experience, or even if you’re simply aiming for a functional update or refresh of your space, connecting with someone who can help you visualize the possibilities is a good first step.

“There are so many aspects to renovation, but working with a designer needs to happen right at the beginning, to get you clear on direction,” says Daniel D’Sa, owner operator of Daniel D’Sa Designs, a Better Business Bureau-accredited company in Victoria.

“I see my work as the light at the end of the tunnel for a client. I’m someone who can fill in the blanks as they go through the process. Designs are a guide for everybody – the homeowner, the general contractor and the tradespeople – to help reach your goal.”

Communication, then creativity

Listening closely to your needs and wants for your space, then designing a functional layout that works with your lifestyle, are critical, no matter the size of your project, D’Sa says. Part of the value of a designer is their ability to visualize changes, he adds.

“When I visit people’s homes, for example, I see a blank canvas and ask them ‘what do you want to achieve?’ I create a visual concept and give them information not only about traffic patterns or furniture layout, but decor concepts, paint and space management. Not everyone is able to envision turning a bedroom into an office.”

Drawing on valuable experience

D’Sa enjoys putting his hand to something new. After attending Humber College, he worked in the automotive industry on parts development and testing. He also spent time in the Canadian Army and later trained as a hull technician in the Navy, and along the way became an expert in using architectural software. And he’s been around construction sites plenty, with both his brothers operating construction businesses!

Simple changes or bold moves?

Design ideas can vary, D’Sa says, depending on whether you’re completing upgrades for resale, or making changes to your ‘forever home.’ “You may be satisfied with timeless elements if your plan is to move on. But for people looking for that vibrant, inspiring space, I can create bold, high-impact designs that incorporate the latest trends. I look to challenge the client just like they’re challenging me.”
