Case study: saving money (or not) renovating

Case study: saving money (or not) renovating
Renovated kitchen

The MoH’s first property was a 1970s unit in “original” condition.  To the uninitiated that means virtually nothing had been changed since the owner moved in 30 years before.  The theme was olive green and dark brown in the kitchen and bathrooms, with a nice shade of peach on the walls.  There were no wardrobes or blinds.

Over the time that I lived there, I think I replaced virtually everything inside, with the exception of a couple of shelves in the linen cupboard.  It was a learning experience and a half.  I’m only just now starting to motivate myself to start again in my current house!
