Oak Bay, BC

The homeowners of this Oak Bay home took "open concept" to the next level and created a wide open, light-filled kitchen and dining space that is unrecognizable from the divided rooms it was before with the help of design partner Hooga Interior Design.

"Project Oak Bay was given a new lease on life by carefully combining the old and the new. Removing the wall between the existing kitchen and dining rooms created an abundance of natural light and expanded the space allowing the family to gather together.

Combining warm and textural tones created a calming and approachable space for friends and family to join them"

The Process

Having a team of specialists using our proven process ensures a streamlined experience and successful outcome.


Connect with a Swede Advisor to discuss scope, timeline, and high level goals for your project.

Consult + Design

Collaborate 1-on-1 with your designer to create the design concept for your kitchen. Swede’s immersive design experience allows you to visualize your space before it's built.

Investment Review

Custom design in hand, your designer will walk you through an itemized budget estimate. Swede’s a la carte style budgeting ensures your estimate is clear and organized.

Check Measure

Once you approve your estimate, your Swede Millwork Specialist will coordinate an in-person site check to gather existing measurements and details necessary for an accurate millwork plan.

Design Refinement

In the final pre-build stage, your Swede Millwork Specialist will use all collected information to refine your millwork package and ensure each detail is reviewed by respective parties before final sign off.

Order Submission + Delivery

Congratulations - your design is now confirmed and your comprehensive materials package will be ordered and delivered to your project? Need build support? We do that too!
