Reaching 1.7M Canadians monthly (Comscore, December 2022), this partnership enables Ideon Media to represent all Canadian advertising sales for Apartment Therapy’s’ flagship property, apartmenttherapy.com, as well as kitchn.com which inspires cooks and nourishing homes through recipes, tips, and shopping guides and cubbyathome.com which specialises in modern, colourful, joyful living for families of all shapes and sizes to find solutions that fit them.
“We are so proud to be the first to bring this unique offering to Canada,” said Kevin Bartus, President & CEO of Ideon Media. “Apartment Therapy has always been a ‘go-to’ design site for consumers to better use and enjoy their home spaces; over the past few years it’s evolved to the must-have guide for keeping a healthy home that works within the lifestyles of today’s consumers. The Kitchn is uniquely home-based as well, featuring recipes field-tested in the home kitchens of professional cooks using readily accessible appliances, accessories and ingredients. This focus has really captured the imagination and ambitions of Canadian home cooks, steadily reaching over a million of these valuable decision-makers.”
“Together the two sites reach almost two million Canadians according to Comscore Canada, over indexing among women 25+ by reaching twice the average, and over indexing among women 45+ by reaching three times the average. And for both sites we’re able to locally produce Canadian branded content, making the offering much more accessible for Canadian advertisers.” added Bartus.

Our companies share a passion for effective brand solutions and Apartment Therapy Media’s mission of helping people live their happiest, healthiest lives at home. Paired with Ideon’s strong reputation and advertiser relationships we’re looking forward to the impactful partnerships they’ll form for our premium sites, Apartment Therapy, The Kitchn and Cubby,” explained Riva Syrop, President of Apartment Therapy Media.
