This project was a total renovation of a 1700 thatched cottage in Kingskerswell. In order to sympathetically renovate the property, I used plaster with a textured finish throughout and rounded the wall edges for a more rustic feel.
The kitchen was a blank canvas with little functionality, storage or cottage charm. Through the removal of the small window, the curved edges of the plaster to the window surround and entrance, new shaker kitchen with oak worktops and new flooring, the cottage feel was restored.
The master bedroom was a good size, but lacked ceiling height (no good when you're 6ft 3in!) Through removing the ceiling, fire-boarding and re-plastering, the room felt more spacious instantly.
Sanding off the painted beams exposed a beautiful feature to the room, previously hidden. The rounded edges and textured finish to the walls and velux window surround remain in keeping with the rest of the cottage.
Completed with white skirting, a more contemporary handrail and neutral carpet, the room has been sympathetically modernised.
