Home before and after images are a great way to get inspired and help you see the potential in your own space.

At My Bespoke Room, we’ve worked on thousands of rooms across the UK and over that time we have gathered just a few before and after images.

We’ve pulled together some of our absolute favourite images of rooms that have been transformed beyond recognition.

If you would like a jaw-dropping home transformation of your own, why not let us do the leg work for you by booking a room design for just £395.

1. Bold blue and tropical cloakroom

Our Interior Designers love to go big and bold in small spaces, and this room is no exception.

We just love the eclectic wallpaper in this design, which pairs perfectly with the gold hardware and the half-painted blue walls.

Cloakroom bathrooms are a great opportunity to challenge yourself and try something new.

Plus, no one is ever expecting to be wowed when they step into the downstairs loo, so it always has the extra surprise factor!

Instead of falling for the temptation to paint this small space white, why not create something memorable that contrasts with the rest of the house?

2. Warm and cosy green Victorian snug

There is nothing that compares to a period property before and after; it’s always incredible to see our talented designers breathe new life into these stunning homes.

We conquered multiple issues with this living room. The space is north-facing and also rather small, so instead of battling the lack of light and space, we embraced it.

The deep green hue evokes intimacy, creating a cosy atmosphere in the space. 

On the other hand, the use of innovative paint hacks, like matching cabinets and skirting boards to the walls, creates an illusion of more height and declutters the space.

Ingenious splashes of abstract patterns throughout the wall art, cushions, rug, and lampshade infuse this living room with vibrant personality, creating a delightfully curated space that's sure to spark joy.

3. Contemporary blue kitchen with classic undertones

In this project, our talented designers helped to guide a couple through their home extension allowing them to make the best of their new space.

The brave, bold blue colour used on all of the kitchen cabinets simply speaks for itself.

One of the benefits of hiring an Interior Designer is you are given the confidence to avoid the safe option and go for a colour that brings you pure happiness! 

Everything in this kitchen, from the shaker style cabinets to the gold accents, creates a traditional and classic feel in a very modern space.

4. Stylish light and bright family snug

This home before and after always surprises everyone who sees it, and we can’t blame them.

The biggest talking point in this space is the modern, shaker style panelling of dreams.

It’s often a misconception that panelling is an expensive task that is out of reach for most of us, but that isn’t true.

There are now many kits and guides available to help you to do DIY panelling in your home and make it just as beautiful as the one above.

The bright white walls in this living room are perfectly contrasted by the dark blue sofa, which becomes a focal point in the space.

Plus, by layering in texture with a soft, luxurious throw, rug and cushions, the room is made to feel super cosy and inviting. 

5. A calming soft pink and blue bedroom

The final room transformation is this sophisticated bedroom which emits comfort and relaxation.

Pinks and blues are great colours for bedrooms as they have a calming effect and also boost your mood. Plus, it’s such a timeless colour scheme that won’t go out of style.

An elegant feel is created in this bedroom through the gold accents featured in the bedside lamps, wardrobe handles and finishing touches like the candle sticks.

The Interior Designer on this project found the perfect balance between storage and aesthetics by providing generous wardrobe space (cleverly painted in the same blue shade as the wall behind) rendering them practically invisible.

Hopefully seeing these transformations from seriously drab to fab has filled you with positivity for your new space!
