Glasgow Duplex Makeover

This stunning house makeover comes from Living Etc reader Rachel. Rachel and her husband bought this one bedroom duplex garden flat in Glasgow and converted it into a two bedroom flat, moving the kitchen from the lower level to what was originally a large entrance hall and knocking down lots of walls to make a large open planned living space.

I can’t believe how the once dark space is transformed into something so airy! My favourite details are the tiles in the ensuite and the charming bedroom.
