PROJECT SWORDFISH

The Brief

Our clients have owned this canal-side home for around 10 years, and had always dreamed of renovating it to create the perfect blend of a homely and resort-style feel. They finally undertook their renovation, adding a double carport and gatehouse, rendering the existing brickwork, creating a new front courtyard with a firepit for entertaining, adding a new roof to add height and a pitched ceiling to the kitchen, installing Velux skylights, completely redoing their main bathroom, fitting new panelled doors with black hardware, and installing timber-look flooring. Given the size of the renovation, the entire home required painting, internally and externally.

What We Did

As we were almost the final trade in the home, we took particular care to really protect the areas we were working in, especially as the new flooring had already been laid. In order to protect the floors from not only paint, but also from our step-ladders and tools, we covered the floors with a combination of thick cardboard, brown paper and plenty of tape, as well as applying protective measures to all other fixtures and fittings. Aside from painting the entire exterior and interior of the home, we also repainted the laundry cabinetry to transform it from a yellowing cream to the dark shade of Domino. Lastly, we completed the look with a tropical wallpaper installation to the front entrance!
