DIY Hallway Renovation (Before&After with photos)

Our Hallway Renovation..

ERE! I am so happy to be showing you this hallway Renovation! We wasn't going to be doing this room this quickly however since the living room was done and the kitchen we just wanted the downstairs to be completed. I am so glad we did!

How The Hallway Looked BEFORE when we moved in...

The Hallway didn't look very nice at all when we moved in, The carpet was super old and didn't look very nice! the wall paper was chip wood and this was so hard to get off! we also had this massive storage heater that looked so bad and wasn't in use. The carpet that you can't see on the stairs was green and we just hated it! I managed the clean the front door and it came up really nice!

How everting looked DURING the renovation...


It looked so bad! we had a rewire so that's why the hole in the halls. The storage heater was taking away, the carpet ripped up and under that was tiles! the wallpaper was taking over and we painted! This didn't take us to many days to do but it was hard work.

How everything looked AFTER renovating....

This is the after. we pretty much changed the whole room. The flooring is from B&Q and it starts in the hallway and goes into the kitchen! I love this floor it looks like tiles but its not! it was super easy to install and we love it! At the door we have ruff carpet squares and they where only £2 each and they are so easy to clean! we didn't want any mug or anything getting onto the floor so having the carpet at the door its so easy for people to make them messy and not the flooring!

Some more photos.....

We are so happy with how it all turned out! the wallpaper was from amazing and its self sticky! so you take it off the backing and put it straight onto the wall!!! this saved sooooo much time! and we just love it! it was a little pricy at £15 a roll and we ended up needing 4 however we can not wall paper and we don't have the patience for it so this was so much better for us. Also if I ever change my mind I can just rip it off very quickly. Its a little hard to line up and its not perfect but who's gonna moan... ( maybe some people but hay we are happy )

How much did this RENOVATION Cost?...

If you would like a full price this of this renovation let me know I will do a post about all the price! However it honestly didn't cost that much and everything was on a budget! Apart from the flooring as we knew we wont be changing it for a least 5 years! most of the d├ęcor was from Poundshop!

The House Hub....

This house hub/ iPad does everything! We can view the house and outdoor cameras, we can answer the door camera with it, we can control our heating, go onto Hello fresh and sort out our meals, control and look at our dogs flea treatment with itch, check our calendar. We used a Table that I had sitting in my bedside table that I didn't use anymore!! so this was kind of free (however past me paid) but I am so happy I got this item!! it does everything and its so handy! this is the best thing about the hallway.

Living Room Renovation On A Budget (Before&After With Photos)

Our Living Room Renovation On A Budget

Our Living room was the first room of the house we renovation as we didn't need to do to much! so we thought! taken the wallpaper (woodchip wallpaper) took 8 hours!! however it was so good once we did it!

here are some before photos....

The next big step was the horrible fireplace! this also look all day and was a lot harder than we thought it was going to be! we found some
YouTube videos as they helped us so much taking this down!

Taking It Down...

This was so nice good when it finally came down! also loads of mess however this didn't take long to clear up, we covered the fireplace up and then brought one from for only £84. we love the fireplace we have and if I ever change my mind and want another one I can! because its not build in.

How the Living room renovation looked DURING the work:





ready. So we changed pretty much everything. The flooring we got from B&Q and we just love we also changed the skirting broads. We got a bookshelf and a new sofa! I love how this room turned out and It took us about a week to do everything! we took out everything from this room! even the carpets we just hated them! the only thing we didn't change was the coving but we did repaint them and make them look a little neater.

How the our Living Room looks AFTER our renovation…

e We are so happy with how everything turned out! I love my little book shelf and this room has so much storage! the sofa also turns into a bed and this is going to be so handy when people stay over! we love the fireplace and this makes the room so warm!

The Flooring...

The flooring we knew straight away when we saw it that it was just perfect! we got this from B&A and It wasn't to much! it was so easy to fit and with both of us doing it didn't take that long at all! the rug we had from our old place and we loved it so kept that.

Most of the decor is on a budget and is from Poundshop or Ikea the sofa bed was from Argos and the bookshelf from Ikea.

How much did we pay click here

Side By Side BEFORE & AFTER!
