We actively encourage you to personalise your property as we want this to be your home.
Lots of BeST properties are kept to a very similar standard, you might notice we keep our walls a white or magnolia colour in all the rooms. This doesn´t mean that you can´t decorate your bedroom or contribute to the communal areas being decorated. We understand that a BeST home could be a home for life and we want it to be as comfortable and homely for you as possible.
If you would like to decorate your bedroom, first you must send a written (or emailed) request to your Housing Officer. In the request you should let your Housing Officer know:
What decoration you are undertaking. (Wall paper, paint ETC)
You must state you are paying for the work to be done themselves.
You must state you will pay for any damage cause while completing the work. (Paint on carpets for example).
Finally, you must state that you agree to pay to have the room returned to BeST´s standard if you ever decides to leave the property.
We would always suggest waiting a few months to settle in before making a decoration request, as decorating can be expensive and we would like to make sure that you like your new home before making any big changes.
