In This Segment

See how a narrow city home can become open and airy. Christopher Wood of LA Design shows off a newly renovated Toronto rowhouse. The 1,200-square-foot family home had an awkward layout and closed-off rooms that made the space seem cramped. See how Wood relocated the kitchen, added contrast with white walls and a black staircase, and created a private ensuite bathroom. Plus, find out how he knocked down walls for a home office and saved money on used windows, reclaimed wood floors and vintage furniture.

See more photos of this home in our September 2009 issue.
