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!
