This striking contemporary bungalow was designed as a bachelor pad by Trickle Creek Designer Homes, nestled on a 42’ X 120’ property in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Encompassing 1,971 square feet of living space, this home lives large thanks to soaring ceilings and light and airy living spaces.
From the exterior facade, an attractive curb appeal invites guests inside. In the foyer, you have vaulted ceilings and large windows, flooding the interior with natural light. The windows and doors throughout this home were sourced from Lux Windows and Doors.
What We Love: This bachelor pad in Calgary features some sensational design elements throughout. From the insane curb appeal, one is immediately welcomed into this light-flooded dwelling where every detail has been carefully curated to meet the needs of its owner. Overall, we think this home is what dreams are made of, from the exterior aesthetics to the overall layout and abundance of natural light.

Above: The main living room features vaulted ceilings and a drywall fireplace that goes all the way up. The fireplace surround is a gorgeous quartz that is carried through into the kitchen.
Above: Another amazing thing about this space is that the homeowner opted to do all-black interior windows, which contrast beautifully with the white walls. All the windows are drywall returns and there are no casings around the windows, giving the space a seamless look and a contemporary vibe.
Above: Just off the living room is the kitchen, which is the heart of the home. This space was completely designed for the homeowner, who does not have a formal dining room. To address this, the designer created two islands in the kitchen. The one on the left is more formal for entertaining, while the one on the right is where the sink, the faucet, and other kitchen tasks take place.
Above: The light fixtures above the dual islands are from M&M Lighting.
Above: A three-inch thick mitered countertop detail in the kitchen is the same quartz that was used on the living room fireplace. It was also carried through to the backsplash, range hood, and into the pantry for a seamless look.
Above: In the powder room, the entire back wall is tiled for a dramatic aesthetic. A half-circle mirror creates a unique focal point, along with a pendant light sourced from Cartwright Lighting & Furniture.
Above: The homeowner wanted his bedroom suite to have a hotel room feel. The under-cabinet lighting turns on automatically as you enter the bathroom. Two separate vanities have been created on either side of the tub. The mirrors over the vanity are backlit.
Above: On either side of the freestanding tub is white oak slat screens to lend a feeling of privacy when using the tub. Behind the tub is a beautiful concrete gray tile that miters into the window for a seamless look. This tile has been carried over into the shower. There are a lot of contrasting pieces in this space, such as black shower hardware and black fixtures for the faucets and the tub.
Above: On the lower level of this home, under-the-stairs cubbies were integrated into the dead space for a functional display of personalized accessories. You could also display wine, books, etc. Also on this level is a huge dark bar with tons of storage for liquor bottles and an amazing Sub-Zero wine fridge. Additionally, you will find a home gym with a large mirror on the wall and a golf simulator.
Above: The golf simulator is more than just your average simulator. It’s a full sports simulator — bowling, football, and dodgeball. To incorporate this into your home, you need to have ten-foot high ceilings. This helps to open up the space and make it feel like you are not in a basement.
