We source quality local materials, ensuring the kitchens and bathrooms we create are beautiful, functional and built to last.
Apart from the showroom, machinery and workbenches, our workshop (The Hive) houses an arsenal of home renovation expertise. And like busy bees, we work together to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible. Being under one roof means we can offer this complete service without the premium, making home renovation as simple, affordable and exciting as it should be.
The kitchen is the epicentre of the home, it should be built to endure everything that life throws at it — our kids certainly put ours through its paces.
Welcome to Hive & Bench, come inside.
We are family folk and homeowners. We build spaces and homes that can handle the rigors of today’s family life. We believe things should be built to last, and should be crafted with a measured consideration for how they will be used.
We aim to put our clients at ease – your home is in the hands of professionals who care. We believe in transparency, and strive to keep the process as simple as possible. That way you know exactly what to expect and can feel confident your home renovation is running as smoothly as possible.
Simon founded Hive & Bench after honing his art in woodcraft for over fifteen years. Traditionally trained in the UK in boatbuilding and cabinetry, he was hugely inspired by his father, who was a master carpenter working at some of England’s finest castles and stately homes. Raised in and around workshops, it wasn’t long before Simon fell in love with the craft.
Having built a successful general contracting business here in Vancouver, he noticed a distinct gap in the market for affordable, custom cabinetry and furniture, and the idea behind Hive & Bench was born.
The majority of our clients are homeowners – most often residing in their homes.
We also work closely alongside: Interior Designers, Realtors, Contractors and Developers.
We want our clients to be happy, not only with the finished product but also with the experience of going through the renovation process, which at times can be fairly daunting. Decision-making is important and we feel that our client’s benefit from our well-thought-out design ideas and solutions, ultimately making their homes even better. Hive & Bench is committed to producing products that stand up to modern life and developing good relationships with our clients who in-turn become our friends.
Let’s get the ball rolling!
