In This Episode

Enclosed Porch Makeover

Learn how to freshen up a front porch for spring! Style expert Reiko Caron transforms a dark and dated entry into a bright room with functional zones. See how she incorporated a mudroom area where the homeowner's two young boys can store shoes and sports equipment, and an inviting lounge area with sun-proof outdoor furniture and colourful accents.

Multifunctional Basement

Designer Cameron MacNeil turns an open-concept laundry area and guest room into a tailored, practical space. Learn his tips for designing a wall of laundry appliances that isn't an eyesore, adding a large table for folding and crafts, and accessorizing an existing Murphy bed for guests.

Classic Townhouse

Halina Catherine of Catherine + Davis tours through a luxurious home with classic European influences. See how she warmed up a narrow builder-basic home with custom wall panelling, an English country kitchen, a palette of serene pastels and textural sisal carpet.
