Andrea Hylton

Andrea is the head of a full-service residential interior design and renovation firm in Waterloo, Ontario.

Many first time renovators are eager to create open layouts in their own homes, hoping to knock down any walls that aren’t directly holding up the floors above. But how open is too open?

Rather than picture perfect designs out of a photoshoot, these kitchens embrace simplicity, imperfections and improvisation to create spaces that feel more lived-in.

Planning and budgeting for proper lighting will allow your kitchen to truly shine, illuminating your gorgeous finishes and creating the perfect ambiance for every occasion.
