"I had many consultations with Kim on the masterpiece she created at Cathedral Hill with the merger of the 3 suites on the 12th floor. She is brilliant, so full of amazing ideas, ones with so much flair. Her attention to detail sets her apart - she is more upscale New York City inspired (where she trained for many years) which is totally evident in her design ideas. She is constantly traveling to stay up to date with the latest developments in various elements of design making people’s homes a show stopper. Design brilliance is in her genes, I would have no hesitation in recommending Kim Teron."

“Kim is very professional, respectful, and great to work with. She completely redesigned our kitchen because it was outdated. What I liked best about working with Kim was that she listened to what we wanted, and was very amenable to our needs and ideas. Her out of the box solutions made the space highly functional, modern and stylish. Kim ensured everything was done in a timely manner. She sourced the best materials and finishes in keeping with our budget. It looks fantastic!”

"I've never experienced a major kitchen renovation before, so engaging a kitchen designer was a big step which came with some trepidation. Normally, one would reach out to several designers and get their ideas and a feel for what they bring to the table. Meeting Kim once was enough to know that our hunt was over. Her approach was professional: everything from organizational skills, communication, flexibility and most importantly, her design skills were excellent. From the design phases, the inevitable problem solving, through to project completion, both ourselves and even the trades were impressed with Kim's help and attention to detail. We are thrilled with our new kitchen. It goes without saying, this is an easy recommendation to anyone contemplating a kitchen renovation. I even recommend asking for Kim's special custom wine racks!" I would not hesitate in saying that you will be well served by engaging Kim for any renovation in your home."

“Kim provided a new approach to the space planning of my new home from a builder’s original layout and footprint. She took the builder’s plans and changed them to a design that better suited my taste and lifestyle. Kim was persistent in ensuring her open concept designs were followed by the builder. She removed the majority of interior walls which originally had all rooms as separate spaces. She added larger windows, turned a deck into an additional interior space, punched out a dining space on the side, and built in that elusive “wow factor” in my home. Whenever I have guests over, their eyes light up and I always feel very lucky to call this space my home. I have even had offers on my house because of the incredible open concept interior design and outstanding landscape design that Kim created.
Kim was always on time and on top of every detail - there were no delays, and if something didn’t work she was there to rectify the issue. She is a perfectionist in her work, always pleasant to work with and extremely precise.
Kim truly understands what it means to work with you and for you. She always presented us with multiple options, and we quickly understood that Kim operates at a higher standard than other designers. She is not happy until you are absolutely in love with the finished product. If anyone were to hire her I trust there would be no question they would be happy with her work."

"Having Kim help me update my kitchen avoided a major and costly renovation. Kim was able to modernize the kitchen, which was almost 15 years old, to produce a luxurious result by using what I already had, incorporating our love of artwork and making aesthetic tweaks like changing window coverings and cabinet hardware. The end result was a modernized and affordable high-end kitchen.
Kim's attention to detail and enthusiasm for the project was unparalleled. She is a great listener, spoke with me to get an understanding of what was needed, and presented ideas that were just the right solution. She offers a high degree of personalized service and is very focused on achieving a top quality effect through creative thinking and expertise while minimizing the cost."

“We had the pleasure of working with Kim Teron Design Studios in 2017 when my husband and I renovated our new home. It was our first experience going through a major renovation, and it turned out beautifully! We owe much of that success to Kim’s expertise and attention to detail. She was with us for our kitchen design and renovation. The space was completely transformed, which created many challenges along the way regarding spacing, sizing, plumbing, electrical, etc. I was constantly reassured when she would see an issue before it happened. She always disclosed it to us, communicated effectively with the trades involved, and continued to keep the final vision in mind.
From a design perspective, we could not have been happier. It has now been over 1 year, and we still love everything about our kitchen area from the colour choices to its very efficient functionality. It is a space our friends and family love as well. Kim considered things that we would never have thought of or known we wanted. As well, she came up with custom ideas to fit our needs. Furthermore, we really liked that she was open to exploring new connections and resources on her end. Because of that, we have a very unique and one of a kind Maple-Wood island. We appreciated her approach when helping us choose our design layouts, finishes, etc. The key words being “our choices.”
Kim was very hands-on, gave well thought-out options, but also gave expert support and recommendations in helping us renovation-newbies make decisions. What I think allowed all of this to come to fruition was her desire, as a designer, to take the time to get to know us. She was always easily reached, preferred to take time and go over things in person, honest and personable, respected our budget, and clearly puts her clients first.”

"Our kitchen was small and we wanted a renovation that would make it more functional without costing too much. Kim fulfilled this requirement and more. She increased the workspace, added organized cupboard and drawer storage, and re-jigged the space so that it is more efficient and fits seamlessly with our lifestyle.
Kim’s work brings true meaning to the term “thinking outside the box”. Her ideas are brilliant and her specific vision comes through in the results of her work. She is incredibly professional – she expanded on my original ideas for our space and put her own exceptional spin on it. It worked out beautifully. We were very pleased with the trades she brought on board and her orchestration of the entire process was organized and a very positive experience.
Kim is a pleasure to work with. She really does have her clients’ needs at heart."
