Robert Bent is a London based tradesman and carpenter, who specialises in bespoke, carpentry storage solutions and full-scale home renovations. With a passion for upcycling, Robert loves a challenge and has a keen eye for design; he’s on a mission to make our homes as functional and innovative as possible using his creative vision to transform our most treasured spaces.
It was this enthusiasm and passion that saw him catch the eye of TV producers and in 2021, he joined the onscreen expert team on the BBC’s hugely popular BAFTA nominated series Sort Your Life Out, hosted by Stacey Solomon.
With Britain one of the most cluttered nations in Europe and with a staggering 70% of us no longer loving our homes, this joy-filled series aims to fix just that, using TV’s boldest and most radical de-cluttering stunt, stripping every single item from the contributor’s home before asking them to decide what stays and what goes, in a visually stunning reveal. This super-sized spring clean sees Robert and his fellow dream team of onscreen experts undertaking spectacular transformations, as much-loved items are given a new lease of life and homes are revamped with a deep clean and a decluttering renovation, enabling families to love their homes again.
From as early as he can remember, Robert has loved being hands on whether that be building Lego as a toddler or in his teenage years working at IKEA, building flat pack furniture and actually enjoying it! After helping friends with DIY and flooring jobs, he enrolled on a carpentry and joinery course leaving two years later with a distinction, which then led to an all-important apprenticeship. Having worked for several established companies, Robert eventually took the leap and set up on his own, making a name for himself delivering high quality craftmanship and creating bespoke domestic solutions for his loyal and growing client base.
With over 18 years of experience in the trade, Robert runs his successful carpentry business from his base in London and is often brought in to rectify mistakes and significant issues following the work of rogue builders whose shoddy workmanship has damaged homes and left homeowners out of pocket. He enjoys nothing more than seeing a room or a home completely transformed, and it is his professionalism and perfectionism which has seen him earn a glowing reputation and a waiting list of customers in urgent need of his expertise.
Stay tuned for more heart-warming stories of transformation and Robert’s expert craftmanship at work on Sort Your Life Out, with a new series coming to your screens in 2024.
