A SAVVY couple managed to totally revamp their sixties style home, into something modern and chic. 

Zoe Smedberg, from Belfast took to TikTok to show her impressive transformation of her home. 

She explained that Zoe and her partner tried to buy a house while pregnant with their son, but because of Covid their mortgage was declined. 

Zoe explained that she waited a year but the market was crazy, and so they decided to buy a sixties house that they could renovate and make it their own. 

In one video on her TikTok, where she demonstrates the makeover, Zoe explains: “It needed a full renovation.

“We stripped the entire house out, removed tiles, stripped years worth of wallpaper, ripped up the carpets.


“Removed the chimney breast in our room. Knocked down walls and ripped out the bathrooms and kitchens. Removed soil stack.

“Removed our ceilings. We worked in the hottest summer in years. Tore down walls, the bathroom boiler and ripped out the bathrooms.
