An Edinburgh couple featured on Wednesday night’s episode of The Great Home Transformation, during which their flat saw a complete refresh.
The Channel 4 show sees hosts Emma Willis and Nick Grimshaw travel across the UK help families change their homes in just three days.
Using state-of-the-art heat-sensing technology, the homeowners are able to see how long they spend in each room — and where the biggest improvements are needed.

Wednesday night’s episode saw the presenters help Edinburgh couple Jade and Joe get to grips with small-space living in their two-bedroom post-war tenement flat.
Before, the two found the home far too cramped to live in, with a joint working space being a particular point of contention for the musician and the artist.
Throughout the episode, the pair — alongside Willis, Grimshaw, and interior expert Alex Dauley — worked to rejig the work space, living room, and kitchen to make them more liveable and eye-pleasing.
Using techniques such as colour blocking, and by replacing and upcycling furniture
Joe and Jade were thrilled with the result, with the former calling it “unrecognisable” and “exciting”
Some viewers at home weren’t so keen on the transformation, or the show itself, and took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
“Changing the boring grey for erm boring grey – for someone with colour blindness,” one said, referencing Joe’s colour blindness.
“Only £180 for materials for a pointless radiator cover… what a bargain,” a second sarcastically commented.
A third tweeted: “I want to like this but it isn’t really working. It’s not one thing or another, and the whole heat sensing thing is just a bit of a gimmick.”
A fourth wrote: “Okay, that is a transformation, but the reason this does not work is that they show you the end result right at the beginning, so there’s no tension, no excitement. Shame.”
“The wallpaper joins and wonky paint lines are really upsetting me,” shared a fifth.
