This refurbishment project involved turning a rundown 3 bedroom Victorian terrace into a high end 6 bedroom rental. My part in the project was the decoration of the interior including a kitchen and 6 newly created bedrooms with en-suites.
The town centre property was based close to the railway station in Reading, so I drew on the Victorian heritage of the property and Reading’s industrial era heyday for inspiration. Pared back brick feature walls were combined with black industrial style light fittings and images of the local area, including Huntley & Palmers biscuit factory and H. & G. Simonds Brewery.
Within less than a week of being placed on the rental market, all 6 bedrooms were successfully let and there was even a letter of thanks from one of the tenants who said she could not be happier with her room and first taste of independent living.
