Hartland Road is a Victorian terraced property located in Queens Park, North London. We were commissioned to modernise the house which included a complete refurbishment, design a rear ground floor extension and improve the existing loft space.

The house had largely been stripped of the original features so we sought to reinstate traditional cornicing, skirting, architraves throughout the property. The existing Victorian fireplace was refurbished with a coat of charcoal grey paint, a slate slip surround and a wood burner installed for those cold winter days.

For simplicity the client wanted a neutral colour palette of taupe, pale grey and plenty of white. The bathrooms were tiled in crackled brick tiles with rustic porcelain wood effect flooring and modern sanitary ware.

In the kitchen, due to planning constrictions with Brent Council, the height of the extension on the boundary had to be fairly low internally. But thanks to the pitch of the roof, rooflights and an exposed brick wall, what was a source of concern is barely noticeable.

The kitchen itself was made to specification on site by the builder so
that the client had a ‘designer’ kitchen at more affordable prices. The carcass doors were made to size and sprayed a F&B colour off site for a polished bespoke finish.
