A couple from Sheffield have had their house transformed into the home of their dreams thanks to a television show.
Jamie Clarke and Shital Shah, from Wisewood, appeared on last week’s episode of Channel Four’s Double Your House for Half the Money, presented by property expert Sarah Beeny.
The couple, who both have disabilities, were given a helping hand by Häfele UK, which donated a number of mobility-assisted products to improve accessibility in their home.
Jamie, who has cerebral palsy, and Shital, who has a rare degenerative condition which means she needs to use a wheelchair permanently, wanted Sarah’s advice on how to save both space and money, as well as creating a home that would remain accessible for the future.
The items donated included a system to adjust the height of kitchen worktops, a pull-down hanging clothes rack, and a swing washbasin.
Shital said: “We have spent years saving for our dream home, so to finally have a future-proof house that improves the whole family’s quality of life is a hugely comforting feeling.
“The new sense of independence that we all benefit from is overwhelming, and could not have been achieved to this high standard without the help of Sarah.”
