Bathroom refurbishment & redecoration
of two bed flat in a Victorian Terrace
KCT London Ltd for the bathroom
We completed a full redecoration of the two bedroom flat and refurbished the bathroom
This was the first time Helen and Caeli had the opportunity to decorate their home to their style preferences as they had previously lived in rented accommodation. With a stringent budget they wanted to create a bright and modern home.
No one particular style like ‘scandi’, or ‘maximalist’ has been employed throughout the whole flat. We been bold with colour but also mixed Victorian, mid-century modern and industrial pieces to give each room a look and feel that is unique and fits the space.
The refurbished bathroom has dramatic dark walls which has been continued onto the ceiling resulting in making the space feel bigger and more serene. Saloon doors replaced a single door into the bathroom allowing much more space for manoeuvring.
We employed clever space-saving and storage solutions in a cost effective manor by designing bespoke furniture to be cut out of plywood using a CNC machine. This method was also used to create three wall hung pendant lights.
The dining table has been constructed from recycled scaffolding boards and bespoke cut scaffold poles that have been painted the same colour as the floor so the table ‘floats’ and does not feel too industrial in the Victorian lounge.

Helen & Caeli's Story
YellowDoor helped make the most of limited space on a very tight budget to create a calm, uncluttered and completely personal feel. Of particular value was design of bespoke furniture using the CNC method. YellowDoor-designed CNC furniture has been used throughout to fit the awkward measurements of our small Victorian flat at a fraction of the price of joinery. For example, we've been able to replace a unit in the kitchen at a non-standard size to fit in a dishwasher and have bedroom side tables and chest of drawers that no commercial furniture on the market would have fit. We also love our bathroom remodel - we couldn't have got the results without YellowDoor drawing up the plans and instructing builders, sourcing the right pieces for a tricky small space, and coming up with replacing the standard door with saloon doors that make it feel much bigger.
