The vision and creativity to see your home differently with åben interiors

Making it simple to transform your ideas into reality with åben projects



You might be scratching your head over our name. We get it; it’s a little different. 

Åben is Danish for ‘open’. 

That’s how we are with everyone. Openness and honesty are what we all deserve, which is why we’re open and honest with our clients, tenants, and investors.

If you’re not sure whether you’re saying Åben correctly, think of bourbon biscuits. It’s Åben (au-ben), like bourbon.




  • I loved staying at your property. It always felt cosy and has a homey atmosphere. As for the feedback, I only have good comments to give. First, any reports of faulty or broken items and fixtures get fixed promptly. You always make sure that the property is well maintained. Third, I appreciated how easily we could get in touch with you. You are an amazing landlord! I am pleased to have been one of your tenants. How I wish all landlords were as kind and professional as you are.

  • I was super lucky to come across Åben! From day one, I've been well looked after and so as the home. Every dealing with the team has been swift and transparent. The little extras have been a bonus and made it home. I wish I could drop my Åben home in my new town up north! The best sharehouse choice I have ever made.

  • As a young, working professional, I have worked and subsequently rented properties in various places across the UK. After almost 15 months of staying in a shared property in Derby with Åben, I can honestly say that I have never lived in a property that is finished to such a high standard. There so many finishing touches that show how much love and care has been put into making the experience as easy and 'home' like as possible. Furthermore, Adam and his wife are so incredibly friendly and helpful, responding very quickly to any queries or minor issues I had along the way. I would highly recommend that anyone looking for a place to rent in any of the homes that Åben offer - you will not be disappointed.

  • I made my first investment in Åben in 2017. The team are all professionals, and they made it easy to make my first investment. I had a look around a property that was in the process of being renovated, and I could see that Åben were passionate about providing a quality product to the rental market that would lead to a sustainable business model which assured me that my investment was safe. Since 2017 I have made further investments as the interest rates are fantastic and you would be pushed to find better rates for UK investments.
