Theme and formatEdit

"BAHAY at BUHAY" was the operative phrase for the show which had makeovers as its core component. At Home Ka Dito takes makeover to the next phase as it marries home makeover with life-changing makeover: a makeover that goes beyond the physical. The show is funky and serious, fun and emotional — a blend of laughter and tears.

Each episode tells a story about a celebrity needing a makeover of any space in their home (or anyone related to her) and, in return for the space makeover mission that the show will conduct, the celebrity agrees to do a charitable work for a person who is going through a hard time that the celebrity can relate to or be of assistance.

Charlene Gonzalez anchors the show. Every episode kicks off with Charlene meeting Eugene Domingo to discuss the makeover mission for the day. They proceed to the celebrity's place. The teen pair is left to do the makeover with the aid of guest experts (for example, interior designers) and movers. They get to participate in the fun part of makeover activities (craft, carpentry, etc.) and impart practical tips to viewers. As this unfolds in real time, Charlene tags along with the celebrity to meet the chosen person who needs their help. They go through a step-by-step solution to the chosen person's problem (the range is wide: issues like dealing with teenage pregnancy, sibling rivalry, generation gap, insecurity, coping with the burden of being a breadwinner, etc.). The intercutting follow through of the progress of the home and life-changing makeovers. This culminates with a series of heart-rending reveal of surprises (mostly of wish-fulfillment related to the needs of the case study ex. Kabuhayan Showcase) for the chosen person as they arrive at a solution. The celebrity is then surprised with the space makeover output and the episode ends on a feel-good note.
