Old Homes with a New Life


Before: Kitchen fashions come and go and if you got it wrong the first time round the chances are it is never going to look great. The choice of dark cabinets is one that often comes back to haunt people but it doesn’t have to cost a fortune fix.

After: Locating a good deal on cabinets is a must, Ikea is often a great shout. White paint and some good foraging for furniture has turned this kitchen into a great modern kitchen that is not only a lot better to work in but will also add value to the home.


Before: It is difficult to attain a look that doesn’t look dated and this bathroom, before its overhaul, proves that.

After: The change of tiles, some paintwork and a new sink console have made this a beautiful master bathroom. By keeping the same setting you don’t have to consider moving the plumbing which will save you money as well.



Before: You would think that you were getting the most of your space in the first picture and though it looks a little dated there would not be much you could do to change things.

After: This redesign goes to show that thinking outside the box can often work for you. A beautiful claw foot bath in a wet room style bathroom has completely changed this bathroom from a cramped one to a bright spacious one.


Before: A garish and outdated hearth dominated the living space of this home until the owners decided enough was enough.

After: Replacing the hearth and moving it to create symmetry has totally transformed the room making it much more appealing. Changing the colour scheme and accessorising.


Before: This room was a little outdated and not in the least noteworthy until a few changes turned things around.

After: Painting the room a brighter colour and taking away the net curtains made this living room a lot brighter. The change of furniture made a big difference and making the most of modern heating options allow the room to retain its style while getting the maximum efficiency from its radiators. Finding heating deals online can help you to save a considerable amount if you are considering a change, everything from full radiators to radiator valves can be found in all shapes and sizes that will suit any design.
