“We worked with Kara to renovate our 2 bathrooms. We are extremely pleased with the outcome. Kara’s drawings and planning made it easy for us to complete this project. Her attention to even the smallest detail was excellent. She was always available for consultation or questions. Her extensive knowledge and hands-on experience in renovations was obvious as we planned and moved through the project. The final product is exactly what we wanted.”

– Doug and Donna Hill

“Both bathrooms are superb. The accessories finish the main bathroom beautifully. The ensuite is a truly Zen experience. Even with both of us using it, the space is always free of clutter and a joy to walk into. The placement of the electrical outlets and switches and thermostats is brilliant. The shower surround and doors are awesome. The tile finishing is nothing short of a work of art. I would not have believed such a gorgeous bathroom was possible in that small space. Thank you.”

– Linda and Ken Nicol

“ We hired Kara from Block Residential Interior Design to provide a complete design and over haul of an awkward bathroom. Kara had the vision and knowledge to provide the outcome we were looking for, modern and fresh. She maximized awkward space to create a functional and beautiful bathroom. Kara and the contractor, James Tonsi, were very professional and when the inevitable issues /challenges arose during the design/construction process, we were pleased with the manner in which they were handled and the solutions/options presented. Overall I highly recommended Block Interior Design.”

“Kara did some freelance interior design work for ImageX Media in revamping our entire office space and did a fantastic job! Right from the get-go, she showed creative insight and quickly came up with a plan that encompassed our team’s opinions and added her own ideas that helped take things to the next level. She, then, implemented the plan, working tirelessly to help us hit our deadlines and going the extra mile to ensure everything was just right, down to the finest detail. What resulted was a space that awes visitors while providing a fun and inviting environment for our team’s day-to-day work.”

– Glenn Hilton, President/Founder, ImageX Media

“Thanks again so much for your advice on our ‘house refresh’. The result has exceeded our expectations.”

“In my 31 years as a joiner and 26 years in business we have not always had the pleasure of working with such well thought out design and specifications. I am encouraged to see a new designer of your talent here in the Mid Island, Kara”

– Bruce Mede

“I am pleased with my kitchen renovation and love working in it. Kara clearly understood what I wanted and needed in my new space. Kara was very knowledgeable, efficient and well organized. She had things redone or changed if things were not to her standards. I also appreciated that she specified local tradespeople from Vancouver Island when she could. I would not have been able to do this on my own and would (and have) not hesitate to recommend Kara to anyone that is doing the same thing that I had done.”

– Helen Seredick

“Without any hesitation whatsoever, we would highly recommend Kara Hihn/BLOCK should you be considering any home renovation project”
