BEFORE & AFTERS

Welcome to the Moregeous Grot 2 Hot section, devoted to transformations completed for clients, TV and our own residential rental properties. Sian redesigns kitchens, bathrooms, garden and sometimes full houses for clients, TV shows and corporate clients. Most images below are direct comparisons of rooms & angles after work was completed and before so it’s easy to see what can be done with lots of imagination and a *little* bit of hard work. Many client jobs aren’t featured for privacy reasons but these ones are our more ‘public’ work!

  1. Love the bathroom in the Exeter house! I don´t think I´ ve seen a fireplace in a bathroom before, but it looks amazing! And it makes the space look very classy, almost luxurious. Black paint was a great choice, powerful color.

  2. Hi Sian,

    Can you give me an idea of where you buy your wood cladding used in the bathroom of The Pad? Is it easy to do?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Dead easy! I bought ours very cheaply from a local timber merchants but you can also buy it from big DIY places and even ready made in sections online, good luck, Sian x

  3. A bit like a restaurateur deciding condiments are not an available option (without insulting the chef), your lack of labelling displays a confidence in your product, but I am too embarrassed to ask which is before and which is after……

  4. These are all gorgeous! I’m trying to distill the essence of “after” and I think it’s good light and houseplants! I’m off to a garden centre…
