Whether you’re looking to buy or just looking for decorating inspiration, a model home visit is a fun way to discover what’s new and what’s hot. These Ottawa area model homes have usually been outfitted by professional designers and decorators to show you the possibilities in kitchen, bathroom and other upgrades and to create a space that you can imagine calling your own.
