3 Bedroom flat refurbishment

Three-bedroom flat refurbishment Stratford East London

This former council flat had recently been bought by our client and was arguably in a terrible condition. The aim was to turn this maisonette into a family home. It had to be done quickly and with a minimum spend; to achieve maximum effect.
The design was very simple; to keep the existing layout and remove a brick partition wall between the WC and bathroom to create one big family bathroom.
After dealing with the local council we obtained permission to internal changes and started the works.
The bathroom was done with minimalistic design and maximum functionality. On the walls and floor we used the same porcelain tiles (natural stone effect).The toilet and sink had to be re-positioned; but the bath position remained the same.
To give the bathroom a more modern look we installed a three-way shower mixer; including a bath filler, shower head and shower handset. All these items were beautifully designed by Hans Grohe.
This bathroom design showed how a well-designed bathroom can add overall value to a property. One of the biggest jobs concerned new plumbing and heating. The house originally had an old-fashioned immersion heater. We replaced it with a new combination boiler and almost all copper gas and water pipes were replaced with modern pipes.
As the kitchen was very small we didnít have many options to change the layout. We had to compromise as the costs had to be kept within budget. We opted for an Ikea kitchen and a ceramic sink, with walnut-effect worktop. Most of the electrical points were rewired and a NEECEC certificate provided.
We fitted a new engineered floor throughout the flat and installed new fire doors. Some of the ceilings and walls were plastered and the whole flat decorated.
The timescale was short and we managed to finish the whole renovation in an amazing three and a half weeks.
