About the Firm
Sanabria & Co. approaches every project as an opportunity to make our clients’ homes a source of pride and happiness. Our expertise lies in seamlessly blending the old with the new and designing spaces that are truly family friendly while honoring your home’s architecture. From whole-house renovations to designing a single room, we love to collaborate with architects, contractors, and skilled trades people to create practical and unique spaces that tell a story.
From experience, we know that creating and implementing a design is a lengthy process and renovations can be stressful. At Sanabria & Co., we believe that the process is equally as important as the end result and we are dedicated to making the process easy and fun!
