- The couple has faced countless obstacles to return the 1960s home intact.
- The renewed Rowland couple has shared their trip on @rowlandrenos
- And after dismantling and renovating each of the rooms, the garden remained
A couple who renovated their entire house, which had not been touched since the 1960s, have revealed the last thing they want to change.
The renovated Rowland couple purchased the semi-detached property in July 2022 and have documented their spectacular progress in its renovation in Tik Tok since then.
When they moved in, their new home had not changed for decades, with dated wallpaper, a basic kitchen and an overgrown garden.
And after dismantling and renovating all the rooms, the only thing left was the garden.
But even after giving it a makeover, they claim there’s still an eyesore that “ruins” the new aesthetic.

The Rowlands’ garden consisted of overgrown borders, a concrete path and a worn lawn (left), but the couple swapped it for a stylish patio, expanded lawn and pretty raised boxes (right).
The Rowland couple, who go by @rowlandrenos, on TikTok were left baffled when they made a host of strange discoveries in their first home.
The garden shed remains as it was 60 years ago, planted in the middle of the garden, but the space around it has been transformed.
It consisted of overgrown borders, a concrete path and a worn-out lawn, but the couple swapped it for a stylish patio, expanded lawn and pretty raised boxes.
Posting the transformation, they added the caption: “Only the garage ruins our garden’s new aesthetic.” [sic].’
This came after changing all the rooms since they bought the building a year and a half ago.
They previously shared some of their quirks, starting with a carpeted master bathroom.
Now spacious and replete with modern tiles, a stylish bathroom, along with a black shower head and taps, the room is a far cry from its dated look.
Although it may seem strange now, carpeted bathroom floors were all the rage in the ’60s and ’70s, hence the room being filled with bold cloth floors.
But that wasn’t the only strange feature they found in their house: another unusual feature was the wallpaper on the ceiling, as well as the walls.
The bathroom has been converted into a stylish and spacious space after the entire room was originally designed in a disconcerting blood red style, even with a carpet floor.
The living room had a wallpapered ceiling that the new occupants did not like to remove.
It was succeeded by a magnificent space with a luxurious sofa and a huge television.
The kitchen had originally been painted an unsightly mint green, but was transformed into a sleek, open space equipped with modern appliances and fixtures.
According 70s wallpaperOne of the minds that inspired the trend was architect Vernon Panton, who often created rooms with similar tones to create “the impression of a unified environment.”
Replacing that was a big part of her living room makeover, and the space now features a beautiful couch and a huge TV.
The new kitchen has a minimalist look, with white cabinets and a sleek induction cooktop, and views of the newly trimmed garden.
The couple continues to share their renovation journey, while encouraging others to jump in and flip their own homes.
