Empty house makeover in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. (A 6 bedroom house.)
I was asked to do this house makeover by some local developers I have worked with a few times. It was unique, and they only had a tiny budget for furniture, window dressings and accessories – only £6,500 plus my shopping and styling costs. I had twelve days to furnish the entire house. Some of the furniture choices weren’t perfect, but cost and availability were the priority. Twelve rooms for £6,500 is almost impossible. (But not quite!) The Estate Agent calculated that the house makeover (- ie the furnishings alone) had increased the value of the house by £100,000.
Here are the results:
This house had been neglected for many years
After – stone blasting the outside to clean all the brick was costly and time-consuming, but worth it.
Before – the living room
Before – another angle
Before – the kitchen
After – the budget for the kitchen was tiny, so the units had to be kept to a minimum. More could be added in future.
Before – a second lounge / snug area
Before – this room was to become a dining room!
Before – all the woodwork was dark, and a mixture of different shades, so it was painted white.
Before – master bedroom
Before – the ensuite
Before – the second bedroom
Before – bedroom 3
Before – bedroom 4
Before – bedroom 5
