Home To Go is an exciting series about portable, affordable, re-inventable home improvements. It’s for people who haven’t yet put down roots and who don’t want to leave behind great renovations when they move.
Featuring makeovers for the bedroom, kitchen, living room and patio; using paint, fabric, wood, accessories and furniture already in the house, Home To Go offers changes based on forward thinking—renovations that become part of your lifestyle, not just part of your house.
Host Peter Fallico (This Small Space) and a cast of young, hip designers offer help to those in desperate need of solutions. The projects are practical, creative and always do-able. Whether it’s a trunk on wheels for a coffee table, banquette seating that hides storage or daylight-saving fabric walls, Peter’s projects are inspiration for anyone who wants to invest in a better home life
What do you give a ballerina on the go who’s living cramped in a two-room apartment full of boxes? Peter builds a funky banquette that doubles as storage and can be packed up and moved when it’s time to relocate. Colour and linens create a calm retreat and a take-away entranceway is created where none existed before.
Mark and Maria have two small children and a small house that’s cramping their lifestyle. Peter demonstrates how to take two upholstered boxes and create a multi-functional table, ottoman and toy box; adaptable as a coffee-table or even extra seating when needed. Also, a dining room table divides the previously open living/play area, and paint and laminate flooring enhance the overall look while increasing potential resale value of the house.
Recently graduated students can’t find a common sense of style in their shared downtown apartment. They personalize their individual bedrooms (one global, one high-tech, one feminine) but opt for simple style with purpose in the living room. Peter creates a behind-the sofa console table with shelves for storage that can be dismantled and allotted to the three roommates when they go their separate ways.
