Transforming Rental Kitchens on a Budget


Transforming rental kitchens on a budget with Bushboard laminate for a luxe finish.


Of all the hashtags they choose for their transformation posts, “#luxuryonabudget” might best describe the properties reinvented by investors and rising Instagram stars Sarah and Rob – also known as May Green Investments.

Loved by tenants for the beautiful finishes created in their private HMO projects, May Green Investments are fans of Bushboard, especially marble effect laminate worksurfaces like Options Calacatta Statuario in glaze texture and Evolve Marmo Calacatta, for its power to look expensive.

Professionals at renovating, finishing and styling kitchens to a high standard, Sarah and Rob are also attuned to the aesthetic power of a beautiful kitchen splashback – our Options Brushed Copper splashback features in some of @maygreeninvestments’ most-liked Instagram kitchen shots.


Sarah and Rob's rental property kitchens need to be affordable and durable, but that doesn't mean compromising on style. Each project has a contemporary feel with sleek fixtures set against warm, dark interiors, and their preferred worksurface finish is marble effect; they've used Bushboard worksurfaces in several investment properties to achieve their signature high quality finish and contribute to hugely increased rental values across their portfolio.

Using marble effect Evolve compact laminate in a rental property not only allows for style on a budget, but also for super fast installation - the breakfast bar comes ready made, and Evolve can be cut to size on-site, bringing down all-important fitting times and costs. Meanwhile, an Options worksurface makes a great choice for a kitchen that becomes the hub of a multiple occupcancy home; it comes with a lifetime guarantee.

May Green Investments say simply: “We love Bushboard products.”

When commenters on social media express their love for marble finishes too, Sarah is quick to sing Bushboard’s praises: “We’ve tricked you, it isn’t marble at all – it’s marble effect laminate by Bushboard which means it’s affordable for property investors like us!”
