Rental Refurb Before and After

My wife and I have just finished refurbishing this rental property that we purchased at auction last year. It was in quite a sorry state but we’ve given it a new lease of life. There are a lot of unseen things such as damp proofing, re-wire, insulated plasterboard, plaster skim etc. I thought you might like to see what we did with the kitchen, bathroom and living room. The kitchen is from Howden’s and bathroom from Wickes. In the living room we used a Howden’s wall unit in white to cover the gas meter and a radiator cover to cover the electricity meter and consumer unit (fuse board). The radiator cover was actually a National Grid suggestion when they replaced the cutout (supply fuses).

    Hi Chris, amazing job that you guys did! If you're ever doing more rentals and looking for a budget-friendly interior design, we recommend peel & stick wallpaper. It's a great option for renters and makes it easier for people to decorate without ruining the overall finish. I hope this helps, Sarah 😊

    Yeah, I’m glad the guys changing the cutout suggested the radiator cover. It looks good and doesn’t take up as much space as a proper built in unit.
