Kitchen Renovation – SE in North York
Heather Hodgson helped us transform our kitchen into a warm and contemporary space which fits in with the rest of our home. She listened to what we wanted and asked the right questions. We have a kitchen that suits us. The cupboard space is amazing. There is a place for everything. We were renovation and decorating neophytes and could not have done this project without her help.

Space Planning & Redecoration – KH in North York
We enlisted the help of Refined by Design after interviewing several Interior Designers. Heather worked closely with us to understand our tastes, and present several options of how our space could look, while incorporating some existing furniture. Heather was professional, timely, and on top of everything. For us, she took away the worry and stress out of having to furnish and decorate our home. While we went over budget a bit, we’re pleased with the end results and happy we did. We’re now looking at renovating our second floor and Heather has been and will be a part of this process for us.

Kitchen Renovation – WA in Pickering
Refined by Design made our home a place where we are excited to come home every day & show it off! Heather was a pleasure to work with. She understood exactly what we were looking for even though we were unsure ourselves. She worked with us to incorporate all our ideas to truly personalize our space. Heather really made the process far less overwhelming than we thought it was going to be. She was very respectful of our budget and the trades that she recommended did an equally great job.

Bathroom Renovation – LF in Toronto
Heather was integral in helping me start and complete my bathroom project. She was patient, resourceful and her suggestions always considered my needs and budget. Her suppliers and contractors were top notch and she always made sure that things progressed on schedule. I would highly recommend her and look forward to working with her on my next project.

Bathroom Renovation, Living & Bedroom Redecoration – DH in Don Mills
Heather listened to our ideas and worked with us to come to a totally positive result, in design, functionality, and cost. She monitored the work of her tradesmen, diligently and continued to discuss the ongoing work with us… keeping us “in the loop”. We love our new bathroom! Her ideas were amazing.
