What Houzz contributors are saying:
Take care when stripping wallpaperRemember to protect your floor when using a wallpaper stripper. ‘The process may get messy, with steam and water running down your walls and dripping all over the place,’ says Yaschuk. ‘Take the right precautions and you’ll save yourself from dealing with unwanted dirt and water stains or, worse, unhappy neighbours later!’Poole recommends wallpaper stripper solutions such as those by Zinsser instead of a steamer. They’re simple to use, meaning less mess, although you’ll need some specialist tactics. Score the wallpaper carefully to allow the stripper solution to work effectively, and avoid excess pressure with your scraper when removing old paper to prevent damage to the plaster.
Room at a GlanceWho lives here A professional woman and her daughter (when back from university)Location West LondonSize Approx 4.2m x 2.9m; part of a mews house built in the 1850s, with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms Designer Charlie Borthwick of Cue & Co of LondonArchitect Nick Farnell ArchitectsAlthough a good size and blessed with lots of natural light, this bathroom has still been designed to maximise every scrap of space. Borthwick created the vanity unit, which contains ample storage and open shelves, while additional clever drawers are concealed in the bath surround. ‘We wanted to make the best use of space and get as much storage in as possible,’ says Borthwick. ‘It’s always good to have storage in mews houses, as they don’t have huge footprints.’Explore the kitchen in this mews house
