A profitable makeover in central London

How do you make your property irresistible to tenants? Call in the experts. Cathy Phillips & Co. understands the property market and undertakes all kinds of makeovers to maximise rental income and minimise void periods. See how we turned this high-end apartment into a desirable space.

The landlord of this apartment with a prestigious address in Park Road, NW1 recruited us to prepare his property for rental.

With our knowledge of the high-end property market and close links with local estate agents, we knew that likely tenants would be from overseas looking for a 6-month tenancy.

This meant making the apartment low-maintenance and practical, yet luxurious – with a feeling of space, a bathroom for each bedroom, real wood floors and a sleek kitchen. While on-trend styling would make the apartment stand out from the competition.

First impressions are paramount

Tenants are increasingly discerning and the difference between a well-dressed and poorly presented property is enormous and will affect the rental value.

What we did to remodel and style the apartment


We reconfigured the layout to add an en-suite and to make it a ‘two-bed two-bath’ apartment.

Cost-effective update

We sourced neutral, stylish modern kitchen and bathroom fittings at trade prices.

Contemporary décor

We created a neutral modern core colour scheme that would appeal whether the apartment was rented unfurnished, to work with a tenant’s taste, or furnished (another service we provide).

Presentation and Dressing

We styled the apartment ready for rental viewings in line with current trends.

Project management

We coordinated all the work, liaising with local authorities, contractors, suppliers and managing agents to make the whole process as smooth and simple as possible. For more information on this case study click here>
