Claire Totman Designs Ltd, a renowned design firm, has successfully executed a remarkable residential transformation, breathing new life into a dated 1970’s property.

The project encompassed a comprehensive overhaul of both the interior and exterior of the property. A significant double-storey extension was added, amplifying the space and modernizing the structure. The challenge was not merely to renovate but to utterly transform the property, ensuring it aligns with the contemporary preferences of a family while maintaining timeless elegance.

The clients envisioned a family abode that exuded relaxation and style, a place where they could create enduring memories. It was crucial to infuse character into the property and achieve a seamless harmony between the interior and the exterior, embodying a sense of timeless sophistication.

One of the most notable transformations was seen in the facade of the house. What was once a dated 1970’s exterior has been entirely rejuvenated into a beautiful facade, giving no hint of its original appearance. The master suite stands as a testament to the meticulous design and attention to detail that characterized the entire project.

An essential aspect of the design was to ensure that it caters to the evolving needs of the family, particularly with young children. The layout and aesthetics strike a delicate balance between contemporary elements and timeless designs, making it adaptable as the children grow and seek more privacy.

Claire Totman Designs Ltd has not only revived a dated property but has also crafted a living space that perfectly melds elegance, character, and contemporary design. The residence now seamlessly integrates with its environment, offering a renewed lease of life, promising years of joy and comfort for the family.
