Elisabeth Fritz, Design Consultant
For Sales Representative Elisabeth Fritz, designing a kitchen is as much about getting to know the customer as it is about the space they’re using in their home.
Everyone has different styles, everyone has a different sized space for their kitchen, and everyone uses their space in different ways, so for Elisabeth, uncovering those different traits and getting to know her customers a bit better is key to designing a kitchen that is tailored to each customer’s individual needs.
Originally from Combermere, Ontario, she earned her Bachelor of Applied Arts in Interior Design at Humber College in Toronto, then worked at a cabinet shop in Chatham, Ontario for two years before joining the Spectrum team in summer 2017.
Her greatest passion lies in residential design. She loves exploring new ideas and discussing renovation projects with her customers. In fact, even in her spare time, Elisabeth has helped friends and family members with their home renovation ideas.
