Kunle Barker On Save Money: My Beautiful Green Home

In the series, fan-favorite Ranvir Singh will be showing viewers all how one can “achieve the green dream without breaking the bank.

Ranvir will be following three families as they renovate and reinvent their traditional homes into beautiful eco environments with expert guidance and advice from none other than Kunle Barker.

For instance, in the opener for the series, i.e. in the first episode, Ranvir and Kunle travel to Manchester to meet Sian and Glenn Absalom, who want to redo their kitchen on a shoestring budget.

By installing an off-the-shelf kitchen made from recycled plastic, using a lino floor made from flaxseed, and with new double glazing and energy-efficient appliances, they certainly help slash the homeowners’ bills to a greater extent.

Talking to First Time Buyer magazine in September 2020, and when specifically answering to question “Where do you live now?” Kunle shared that=- when he moved back to London from West Yorkshire, England he decided to rent somewhere with his girlfriend, who is now his wife. So, together with Milsey, he bought a larger apartment and then moved into the house they live in now.

Going into details, Kunle revealed the place is an Edwardian terrace in northwest London and that with two small children, the place has worked even better for them now.
