2-bed apartment in 1840’s listed building – Paddington


This 2 bedroom flat was part of a beautiful, 1840’s listed building in Paddington, Central London. Our clients wanted to renovate the entire apartment to an exceptionally high standard. This included the careful restoration of all the original features of this gorgeous period property. Furthermore, the client was looking to change the layout of the flat to allow for an ensuite wet room and additional storage space.


Renovation works included:


Changing the floorplan of the flat:
  • Relocate the kitchen
  • Convert the old kitchen space into an ensuite wet room
  • Relocate the master bedroom doorway to accommodate the new floorplan. This was a load bearing wall, therefore we installed a double rsj support beam with the guidance of a structural engineer
  • Build two fitted wardrobes


Original feature restoration:
  • Restore all original coving
  • Restore original deep skirting boards, and replace with the same style versions where unable to repair
  • Repair and paint all original sash windows


Whole house works:
  • Add new plumbing throughout the house
  • Install new heating system
  • Complete rewire and fitting of new fuse box with red protection systems in compliance with regulations


Bathroom renovation:
  • Waterproof both bathrooms to create two wetrooms. We used aqua panels and plywood layers before finally applying a waterproof membrane
  • Tile throughout using 45 degree cut tiles for perfect corner finishes
  • Install new bathroom furniture


Kitchen renovation:
  • Install gorgeous stone gloss units with fully integrated appliances and wine cooler
  • Apply slate grey granite worktop with breakfast bar


Additional works:
  • Fit dark oak shade engineered wood floor boards throughout
  • Install floor to ceiling wardrobes with mechanised features to improve functionality and space
  • And finally, we fitted a stunning 600 crystal chandelier chosen by our client in the living room
