What Makes a House a Home? How a Vancouver Home Renovation Can Transform Your Home

by | Jun 17, 2020

A house is a building with walls and a ceiling waiting to become a home – a sanctuary. A place that’s warm, comforting, inviting and offers a place to breathe away from the rest of the world. 

When going from a bare-bones home to a space that reflects the owner or family’s character, it’s important to take a humanistic approach first. This way, the person is placed at the core of the project, in the heart of the home. And from that centre, you begin to work outwards, filling the space with furniture and pieces that are extensions of the client.

A Home is Filled with Meaningful Pieces

A home is adorned with pieces that you’ve brought back from your travels, pieces that are meaningful and authentic to you and your family. They can be nostalgic family heirlooms passed down from a great grandfather or older pieces found in a vintage store. Don’t be afraid to mix in the old with the new because that’s what takes an atmosphere from being too modern and sterile, to homey and inviting.

A Home Reflects Character

When we get to the interior design portion of your home renovation, we take our time to get to know you. Your home should reflect your character, the character of your family as a collective and everything you love to do together. A Vancouver home renovation should emit feelings of familiarity and comfort from the second you step through that door.

A Home is Custom

There is nothing like, at the end of the day, coming home to a space that is uniquely yours. Custom, thoughtful little touches that are intricately woven throughout the home. At Keen, we dedicate ourselves to learning as much as we can about the way you live in order to make your home one that is built around your lifestyle. Using an interdisciplinary approach for optimal scheduling, budget control and quality, we aim to help shape your sanctuary exactly as you envisioned it.

A Home is Lived In

A home feels lived in. During our consultation, we conduct a thorough needs assessment and tour the site to pinpoint what the renovation needs most. We want to make your space one that is both beautiful and one that you will use for years to come. Our goal is to present you with a level of quality that is reliable and worthy of being passed down to future generations.

Although it takes time to truly settle into your new space, our home renovation team makes it easy to do so. Our seamless approach to renovations and interior design is one that puts you at the heart of it all.
