Before...

Not much you can say here really.   Apart from the obvious (refurb front door, carpets, lights, radiator) the only change is going to be putting a cloakroom with toilet and sink under the stairs. 

And this is where it will go!

The view from the top of the stairs isn't much better.

 

...After 

Once the bannisters had been stripped and painted, the walls painted, a radiator installed and lights and carpets fitted, the hallway looks completely different and a much more welcoming first impression of the house.
