Lonsdale Road Flat – Step-by-Step Refurbishment

Client Background

A strategically positioned flat on Lonsdale Road had primarily catered to short-term tenants over the years. Recognising the property’s potential, the landlord envisioned transitioning it into a long-term rental and initiated a phased upgrade.


The property, though wonderfully located, bore outdated features that diminished its appeal for potential long-term tenants.

Project Objectives

  1. Electrical Upgrade: Rewire the entire flat and introduce external lighting in the rear garden.
  2. Window and Door Modernisation: Replace rear windows and French doors leading to the patio garden.
  3. Reception Area Transformation: Refresh the dated appearance with a more traditional and functional design.
  4. Decor and Amenities: Redecorate the flat and implement new window coverings, doors, and floorings.
  5. Phased Refurbishments: Plan subsequent stages focusing on kitchen replacement and bathroom overhaul, among others.
  6. Property Management: Secure quality tenants post-renovation and manage the property on behalf of an overseas landlord.

Solutions Implemented

  1. Electrical Work: Completed a comprehensive rewiring, including adding garden lights.
  2. Garden & Access: Enhanced the patio garden and fitted modern rear windows and French doors.
  3. Reception Makeover: Swapped the open tread staircase for a traditional style with storage solutions, integrating a cleverly designed shelving unit to mask the support beam.
  4. Interior Refinement: Executed a full redecoration, accompanied by new window treatments, doors, and carpets on the upper floor.

Future Plans

  • Stage 2: Focuses on fitting a contemporary kitchen.
  • Stage 3: Aims to incorporate a new bathroom, a combi boiler, and a layout alteration to facilitate a generous wardrobe in the front bedroom.
