Putting The Kid’s Room and Baby’s Room Together
Five episodes in for HGTV Canada’s Home To Win, and the kitchen and kids’ room reveals were worth the wait.
To be honest, the kids’ room is always so much fun. It’s a room where you can revisit your own childhood, be more playful with a decor scheme or making it a bonding experience with you and your child or children.
Getting playful in the kids’ room
The second floor, as we saw with the guest room makeover, was gutted. And our favourite advocate for colour, designer Tiffany Pratt was paired up with builder Brian McCourt to complete the second-floor renovation. It was turned into a nursery/kids’ bedroom. Tiffany was right – the touches of colour are a much needed touch. Even if the room doesn’t scream “It’s a boy!” or “It’s a girl!”, it’s still thoughtful to add colour that will share the playfulness and, at the same time, the serenity of the room. You want kids to play and sleep in the same room, so the space should echo that. And it does, thanks to Tiffany and Brian.
As for the pieces in the kids’ room, I got all nostalgic with the mid-century vibes of the Finley crib and dresser. The white finish, the clean lines, and the simple hardware ensure you’ll never get sick of it. And the stylish legs add interest, so this room is anything but basic. (Plus, you have to love that it’s been tested by the Juvenile Products Manufacturer Association, the American Society for Testing Materials and the Canadian Consumer Product Services.)
And it’s a convertible bed! Check out the video below to see how it can be transformed to grow with a child.

The reno action wasn’t just on the kids’ room. On the main floor of the HGTV Canada’s Home To Win house, custom contractor Colin Hunter and designer Sabrina Smelko fixed up the kitchen. Keeping the pizza oven intact, the design of the kitchen was based on that. The food prep area is significant, and the dining area is cozy. I hadn’t thought of ever using accent pillows in kitchen seating, but it just makes so much sense. Especially with the upholstery feel of the Mary Jane chairs with matching table.
