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 [...]

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 [...]

‘I need you to stage my home again please!’

2013-11-08T13:32:47+00:00

"Stage my home again please!" A previous client sent me this message - I had already helped her to sell her house within days during the previous year, and now she was on the move again. Knowing how beneficial the service had been, she had no doubts about calling me for a second time. (There's a link to her first house at the end of this page.) This time, she had learnt from her previous mistakes (mainly involving mixing the wrong colours together) [...]

Empty house makeover in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. (A 6 bedroom house.)

2013-10-19T11:37:57+00:00

I was asked to do this house makeover by some local developers I have worked with a few times. It was unique, and they only had a tiny budget for furniture, window dressings and accessories - only £6,500 plus my shopping and styling costs. I had twelve days to furnish the entire house. Some of the furniture choices weren't perfect, but cost and availability were the priority. Twelve rooms for £6,500 is almost impossible. (But not quite!)  The Estate Agent [...]

A house doctor project for an Australian couple – in Nottingham

2013-11-01T10:39:20+00:00

House Doctor fame reaches as far as Australia it would seem - this couple live in Australia but own a house in Nottingham. They had seen the House Doctor show many times, and decided to call me when it was time to put it on the market. It had been rented for a few years, but was in good condition. It needed furniture, window dressings and all the usual finishing touches - on a very tight budget.  We first agreed to only [...]

One-day home staging – a character property in Shropshire

2013-10-18T12:28:42+00:00

I had the pleasure of home staging a beautiful character property in Shropshire. I went for a 3-hour consultation whilst we made our plans, then the family followed my instructions on clearing/tidying for the next few days, and I returned for one day of home staging and taking photographs.  This is a really cost-effective way of having great photographs which gives you the best chance of selling the property. My client was delighted when it sold. She said  "It’s been a really tough [...]

Home staging project in Cossington, Leicester

2013-11-08T13:38:30+00:00

 A Home Staging project  See what a beautiful house we've been working on, in a village in Leicestershire.  This was a relatively inexpensive makeover, using mostly what was already in the property, and it's made a huge difference to the appeal of the house. It's an unusual property, in that it has been divided into three dwellings, so it was vital that we made each room as impressive as possible, to match the exterior of the house. Hartleys Estate Agents [...]
