Help Upgrading A Condominium

I was very happy to work with Sarah Kidder of Sarah Kidder Design.

After I saw what a fantastic job she did renovating my daughter's apartment I was happy to ask her to help me with many things in my own condominium that needed fixing or upgrading.

Sarah takes her time talking to you and finding out what you really want and need. She listens very carefully and always gives you many choices for every different thing.

As a senior citizen I appreciated this very much about Sarah. She never made me feel rushed and she is always so patient to explain everything to me and give me as many choices as possible.

She, and all the people on her team, Irish Renovations, and all the contractors she brings to the job are hard working and very respectful and very dedicated. Everyone works very hard to make sure that everything turns out perfectly.

Because of this dedication and high quality of workmanship I am completely happy with everything Sarah has done for me and I will always hire her for her assistance in the future whenever I have any need to improve any part of my condo because I know she will do always do a great job.

Living room/bedrooms renovation

Sarah gave us a beautiful living room, dining room, and bedrooms with updated furniture, flooring and paint in a style that completely suited our diverse tastes. Sarah and the contractors she deals with are friendly, talented and reliable. I highly recommend her company.

Full Condo Renovation

Working with Sarah Kidder has been an exciting, wonderful and fun experience! My husband and I were very confident quickly after meeting Sarah at a Home Show, that her dynamism, sincerity and incredible creativity were the right fit for us and we couldn't be happier with the results of working with her.
We came to Sarah with absolutely no experience with any kind of home design project and from the very beginning and through every moment over the past several months she has been patient, professional and positive with us, explaining along the way the myriad of city codes, Condo Corp. bylaws and provincial standards involved in our renovations.
We told her at the outset what we both wanted and needed from our living space - a 2-bedroom downtown condominium downtown - and she has amazed and impressed us both with her incredible hard work, commitment and her immense passion for doing this job for us exactly the way we wanted it done - or in some cases - even better than we'd hoped.
In the few instances when rules and/or regulations simply meant we could not have exactly what we'd hoped for, Sarah would come to us ready with several fantastic alternatives. Her positive attitude and professional dedication are incredible - and more so in an occupation that is fraught with multiple levels of regulations and limitations. In these months she has consistently made us feel like our home and project are as important to her as they are to us.
And the proof, as they say, is in the gorgeous new kitchen in which I can now make pudding...
After setting an ambitious project for a full floor replacement, 2 new bathrooms and a whole new kitchen, plus the addition of a 3rd bedroom (as a library), we have been thrilled every step of the way as we've seen our home completely reborn with the many elements and items we'd hoped for as well as with scores of creative elements and design features we could never have dreamed of in a million years and which we now cannot imagine living without.
Sarah Kidder of Sarah Kidder design transformed our living space from a cluttered, college dorm kind of chaos to an absolutely stunningly beautiful, incredibly functional and wonderfully fun home.
And through every step of this lengthy, emotional and complicated process she has always treated our money and our budget as though they were hers, she has always been positive, upbeat and energetic to deal with, and she has always, always kept foremost in mind what will make us happy in how we live in and use our home.
I would urge anyone who is considering a design or decorating project to consult with Sarah Kidder. She's like having a mom, a police officer, a financial adviser, a best friend, an architect, and an incredibly talented artist all rolled into one - and all on your side - completely determined and dedicated to getting things done for you.
Her professional discounts mean that most things related to the renovations didn't cost us nearly what they would have if we had done it ourselves - and her insights and creativity are invaluable for getting around the many bumps that come up on the road.
Every day of our project, I have only been more and more sure that hiring Sarah was not only the right thing to do both creatively and financially, but my husband and I have also realized that we could never have been so completely happy with our home if we had tried to take this on ourselves.
Sarah designed, planned, supervised, and made our home so much more beautiful than we had hoped in our wildest dreams and every step of the way she did everything with grace, kindness, humour, resourcefulness, courtesy and truly, incredible, talent.

Bathroom reno

Sarah and her associates were thorough, painstaking and reliable. The project was completed to my total satisfaction. There was only one surprise, which was not the fault of the contractors, but caused by a previous renovator, but they overcame this obstacle efficiently and at reasonable cost. Sarah has imagination and extensive contacts, knows where to get the best value, and took care of all the details, which to me was invaluable.

Living Room/Dining Room Decoration

We hired Sarah to help us decorate a formal living and dining room area. We wanted to her to help us choose the paint colour, necessary furniture, artwork, decoration elements. Although we did run into issues with some of the custom furniture (no fault of Sarah's) she was always there to help in resolving and proposing other solutions. All in all we are very satisfied with the work she performed and I would definitely not hesitate in recommending her.
Both rooms look fantastic.
Tks Sarah.

Main floor re-design

Sarah is a creative designer who listened to and incorporated the needs of our family of 5, all the while respecting the integrity of our 1930s home. She provided design ideas that were both highly functional and incredibly beautiful. She is personable, reliable, and so easy to work with. She has been patient with our decision-making process, giving us the time we needed to absorb the plans, discuss modifications, and work through all elements of the design. We would highly recommend working with Sarah!

Design Assist

In the middle of a renovation, we found ourselves looking for assistance to make some of the decisions around details that we found boggling to figure out. Sarah was brilliant at quickly coming in and confirming that we were on the right track, and coming up with some ideas that we'd never have thought of ourselves.

We hope to work with her again in the future on other areas of the house.

Amazing experience

we recently moved to a space three times the size of our previous home. Needless to say we had to fill the space. Sarah really listened and was invaluable in making our space home. She made everything so easy while respecting our budget.

Kitchen Renovation

Sarah brought me a beautiful kitchen design. She showed great taste in her choices of materials and stayed in touch with me throughout. I was very impressed with her professionalism, her commitment to the renovation and her willingness to overcome all manner of obstacles. She was able to work well with a number of different contractors, and was very easy to consult with. She was always available to come in and oversee the contractors. Sarah is honest and hard working. I highly recommend her.

Office renovation

We are a startup company that needed to renovate our office to help attract new employees. With little direction and a lot of creativity, Sarah Kidder Design did a great job!
