Be inspired by this Victorian semi in Kent

This four-bedroom semi-detached home in Kent dates from 1896. The owners, a hairdresser and cab driver, bought the property in 2005. It was already a family home with a great kitchen and extension, but the owners were keen to add colour and quirkiness. They redecorated throughout and moved the bedrooms around following a loft conversion. ‘Part of the reason we feel so comfortable here is because we got to know the house before making any design tweaks,’ say the onwers.
