You Deserve This House - Makeover For ‘Ray Of Sunshine’ Alice
“Home makeover shows like You Deserve This House are great, because they demonstrate that you can upgrade your interiors without breaking the bank, encouraging more and more people to consider home improvements,” says Granite Transformations’ UK chief, Danny Hanlon. “The typical before and after sequence at the end, during what they call ‘the reveal’, demonstrates just how big a transformation can be achieved. And we don’t use any techniques on TV that we don’t apply in people’s homes.”
Channel 4 daytime show You Deserve This House puts the focus on deserving causes, with Amanda Lamb and the team giving secret makeovers to the homes of local community heroes. One episode featured 20 year old Alice Halstead who, despite a life-threatening illness, works tirelessly to raise tens of thousands of pounds for children’s charity ‘Rays Of Sunshine’. Tradesmen, friends and GT fitters helped transform her home, with a new look kitchen, bedroom and study.
The programme’s interior designer, Scott Waldron, chose Granite Transformations’ top-selling Black Star recycled glass worktop surfaces to give Alice’s kitchen a complete makeover in a single day, creating ‘a smart and slick kitchen space’. The tough, hardwearing material was also extended to full-height splashbacks, for a luxurious wipe-clean finish. In the final reveal, Alice’s ‘Wow!’ said it all.
