After purchasing a property in Point West, our client wanted to substantially upgrade his two-bedroom, 973 sq. ft apartment. Although in need of a thorough update that required heavy refurbishment work, the client was sold by the property’s potential and proximity to South Kensington’s fantastic amenities.
The owner was encouraged by our team to divide the kitchen and living room areas for functional and aesthetic benefits. Initially, the client did not want partitioning as one of his main purchasing decisions was based on the open-plan design that provided the illusion of more space. Our best-of-both-worlds solution was a crittal-style glass partition with a sliding transparent door. This required permission from the building manager that the team managed on the client’s behalf.
This full, bespoke refurbishment and interior design project also included new wood flooring, full rewiring with spotlights and chandelier, built-in kitchen partition, full redecoration, bespoke furniture, curtains and built-in wardrobes. By liaising with the building manager on our client’s behalf, we were also able to obtain the permissions required for AC installation. We also dealt directly with the AC contractor until the installation was complete.
See how we increased the rent of a landlord’s Notting Hill Gate, W11 property from £1,200 to £2,200 through clever refurbishment paired with thoughtful furnishing and styling.
Changes which achieved the most drastic results included: Removing the Lower Ceiling, introducing an Open-plan layout and work-from-home area, as well as a repositioned Kitchen.
Aside from the clear benefits of the renovation and restoration, the Portobello Road Market-inspired décor appealed to the target audience, meeting the landlord’s goal of gaining an instant tenant at a much higher rental value.

We made a real visual and quantifiable difference to this North-London property in a short time frame for a far lower cost than the landlord had envisioned. The flat received an instant rental offer of £70 per month more than the flat has previously rented.
