When it comes to extending on a budget, Jade Doutch leads by example with her beautiful kitchen-diner. The way she's whittled a bright open-plan space out of a series of small rooms impressed our judges so much that they awarded Jade the grand prize.

Best renovation – sponsored by Icynene

A grey bedroom with panelled wardrobes, two-toned walls, original Victorian floorboards and a Victorian-style fireplace

Jade Rodrigues and her husband took on a run-down Victorian house with zero DIY knowledge and a modest budget, creating a dramatic, bold home that wowed our judges in the process.
