Ryan Bax has been surrounded by home builders and the construction business his entire life. He began working for his father and brother-in-law and over the years he gained an understanding of the home building process.

In 2010, he and his wife, Jocelyn, moved from North Bay back to Belleville and became the owner of a company which services builders, flooring stores, and homeowners looking to upgrade their homes.

That same year, Ryan and Jocelyn built their first home. During their home building process, they found it immensely frustrating running to numerous locations to make selections, not receiving samples, and losing track of what was chosen. It was in these moments that they realized “There has to be an easier way!” It was then that The Quinte Design Centre was born.

Since 2014, The Quinte Design Centre has been turning ideas into reality, making the kitchens and living spaces of homes look like a magazine cover. It is a place for the inspired to browse and create their dream home from the kitchen to the ensuite, the laundry room to the playroom, and every space in between.

Our showroom allows people to bring their plans together in one place, with all their selections presented in one location. The days of running to the flooring store, back to the kitchen store, and then somewhere else to select paint colours are gone. The Quinte Design Centre is the one stop ‘candy store’ for the homeowner.

Your home is not just a roof over your head — it is a source of pride, a place to welcome and entertain, a place for comfort, and the biggest investment of your life.
