Small Showhome in Nottingham – low budget, high impact

2017-02-01T19:34:42+00:00

My brief for this Showhome in Nottingham was to produce the biggest impact on the smallest budget. As usual! With careful planning and design, considering the needs of any potential buyers, within two weeks of my initial consultation, this was the result. The developer was delighted - and I quote - "Looking great, I have to say!  You have done a great job.  The flat has a lovely feel, I am delighted, and it's such a pleasure to work with someone who delivers [...]

Home staging works again – SOLD!

2016-03-15T21:47:31+00:00

Yet another example of a happy client - Midge firmly believes that the home sold because of the Home Staging process.  We staged the house in December, so it was on the market over the worst time of year - but it still sold at the end of February! A text from a relieved client This home staging was completed on the lowest budget possible, and much of the furniture was there on a 'beg, steal or borrow' basis from friends and family. See [...]

Home staging and updating a house stuck in Memory Lane

2016-03-05T22:17:34+00:00

This was a wonderful project to work on. Updating a house that has not been altered in any way for many years - whatever the reason - is really rewarding, especially when the homeowner is ready to make those changes, and allows you a free-rein, within an agreed budget. The purpose of the update was to help to sell the house, but an added bonus for the homeowner was the amount of decluttering that I helped him with, which will make his move [...]

The fastest home staging ever!

2016-03-05T19:52:03+00:00

This home staging project was completed at top speed - before a potential buyer came back for their second visit!  My Consultation was arranged for a Thursday afternoon, and during the session, I discovered that a potential buyer had already seen the house, and had a second viewing booked for the following week - but she had commented on several occasions that the house was dark.  Well, that sounded like a challenge to me - especially as I agreed with her.  So, [...]

Darley Abbey Makeover

2016-03-15T18:42:46+00:00

I was so lucky with the weather during this makeover in Darley Abbey, Derby. The sun shone on the beautiful garden every time I needed inspiration for the house! The property is located in a lovely peaceful area, and the garden is stunning - designed and developed by the homeowner, who is an arboriculturalist, (tree specialist), so you can imagine the variety of trees and plants on show all year round. The décor in the house itself was a little tired, but after the makeover of course it is [...]

One day home staging in Coventry

2014-07-24T14:46:40+00:00

Just one day of shopping and one day of home staging made a huge difference to the appeal of this home. My client borrowed some basic furniture from friends, and I took everything else with me. The estate agents were amazed, and increased the asking price of the house immediately!  My client said: "WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I love it, the place looks amazing. You have really bought out the best in the place and the colour schemes are gorgeous.  You were right about [...]

There are some 'before' and 'after' photos of an attic at the end of this article. To declutter your attic and keep it that way in the future, work through these six steps: 1) Plan in advance.
