He fresh­ened up the paint­work, changed the floor­ing, re-tiled the bath­room and then got a joiner in to com­pletely mod­ernise the kitchen. “I had a white kitchen in my last flat and I just love how fresh and clean it felt,” he said. “It was an easy choice to get a white one again.” Do­ing things a bit at a time,
