3 Bed Flat Kensington High Street London W8 Refurbishment


3 Bed Flat Kensington High Street London W8 Refurbishment

Refurbishment project: to convert an existing utility room into a shower room. To replaster walls and ceilings throughout the flat. And finally, to paint all internal doors and wooden sash windows.


Works undertaken for our clients include:

  • To sand and paint all internal doors
  • Strip and paint 16 wooden sash windows
  • We re-plastered several damaged walls and ceilings in the flat including fiberglass repair of cracks
  • Replace cracked kitchen tiles
  • Replace broken textured glazing
  • Build a new bedroom wardrobe
  • Rewiring and additional sockets in the living room
  • We converted the existing utility room into a stunning, spacious shower room – further details below


This shower-room conversion was the largest part of the refurbishment work:

This area was originally used as a utility room and was full of piping, cables, a fuse box and the boiler. All of these variously required for us to: remove, relocate, or make them safe in-line with wet-room electrical requirements. Electrical works included: installing waterproof lighting and relocating the light switch. In addition, we rerouted the electrics for heating and shower components ensuring the required regulatory standards were consistently met.

We removed the cupboards and existing flooring. Our specialists then used a waterproof membrane on the floor and walls to create a watertight barrier to guard against any future leaks.

We added new hot and cold water and waste pipes for the shower and basin. Along with a new waste pipe for the toilet. We connected these to both the main waste pipe outside of the property and the second-floor bathroom waste pipe (requiring a small scaffold).

The client requested that we build a partial dividing wall in order to separate the shower area from the toilet and basin area. Our team then tiled throughout in a large, modern neutral tile with a stand-out porcelain marble effect utilised in the shower area.

In order to create a super-smooth professional finish, we used a spray gun to paint the doors and window surrounds throughout the flat, protecting all other surfaces with a plastic membrane.

And as you can see from the images, the result is a stunning, contemporary Kensington home.
