What is Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen's net worth?

What is Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen's net worth?

One of the kings of DIY and gaudy design, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen burst onto our screens in the early 2000s.

He’s had a long and successful career, becoming a household name with his flamboyant taste of outfits and some questionable design choices in the likes of Changing Rooms.

It made a recent comeback, but how much is Laurence worth?

What is Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen’s net worth?

It turns out that zebra-print suits and vibrant DIY is a lucrative business, as reports say Laurence is thought to be worth a massive £8 million.

While Laurence has never confirmed the figure himself, it’s thought he has built up a fortune thanks to decades of TV work, adverts (DFS, anyone?) and his art consultancy business.

He’s the personification of “more is more” when it comes to style and design, and it’s certainly worked out well for him.

There have been some seriously dodgy designs on the show over the years (admittedly, not all his fault.)

Laurence has a degree in Fine Art and moved into interior design, before landing the presenting job that changed his life. He became a star thanks to the launch of Changing Rooms back in 2003, then on BBC Two.

Who could forget those leather trousers, after all.

It wasn’t the end for Laurence when Changing Rooms sadly ended in 2004, and he continued working in TV.

Highlights include joining Popstar To Operastar as a critic with the iconic Meatloaf.

He also worked in Australia and Asia, and appeared as a judge on The Apartment, and judged Australian TV show House Rules.

He has also presented World's Greatest Hotels and My Lottery Dream Home International, and joined Nick Knowles on DIY SOS.

He returned to his beloved Changing Rooms when it was rebooted in 2021.

Laurence said it was a culture shock coming back to the UK: “In Asia I've got about 130 million viewers and it’s all about my guyliner, and it’s all about my backlighting and it’s a huge crew.

"I don’t move without 300 people in an entourage."

Never change, Laurence.
