Take video tours of our three favourite makeovers from past seasons of H&H Online TV! Stay tuned for all new segments next week, December 31st!

Spacious Victorian Reno

Discover the recipe for a bold, open-concept home. Chef and food stylist Claire Stubbs opened up her cramped Toronto semi to make it more modern and airy — resizing or relocating nearly every wall, door, window and staircase in the process. See how she transformed the main floor with a walnut and marble dream kitchen, dining area for 12, modern fireplace wall, and a living room with a hidden TV. Plus, learn how stacked staircases and widened doorways with sliding doors made the second and third floors bright and expansive.

Hotel-Style Bathroom

Learn designer Trish Johnston's secrets for transforming an outdated space into a fresh and contemporary retreat. She replaced a single sink vanity with double sinks and a luxe marble countertop. Herringbone floor tiles and a classic chinoiserie wallpaper lend a traditional feel to the bathroom, while modern elements like a glass shower, deep rectangular tub and polished nickel square faucets complete the hotel-chic look.
