One-day house doctor service. (Newark)

2013-11-07T19:29:21+00:00

House Doctor Service - One-day Following a 3-hour consultation, the homeowner's family spent a couple of days in the house, tidying-up, painting the kitchen, and modernising the bathroom. A week later, I returned for a house doctor / photograph day, which involved me working my way around the house, styling it for the photographs and taking the photos when the light was just right. Before After a tidy-up and some plants in the pots Beore After [...]

An estate agent used my House Doctor services for her own home! (Flintham, Nottingham.)

2013-11-06T09:07:04+00:00

This is the third time an estate agent has asked for my House Doctor services to sort their own home. And it SOLD within ten days! This busy lady knew her empty cottage needed some attention before it went on the market. It didn't have much kerb appeal, so potential buyers needed to see what was inside.  She knew that good photographs were essential, and it worked! Here are the photos. In true house doctor style, we kept the budget [...]

Home Staging in Bedworth, Coventry. A modern 3 bed house with a mixed colour scheme.

2013-10-17T18:01:59+00:00

Home staging in Bedworth. This house was modern, with none of the usual clutter or DIY issues that I have come to expect in a home with a young child and working parents. The homeowners called me for help as they needed to obtain the highest possible price for it, so that they could purchase their dream home. They didn't feel they could "finish it off" to the high standard they knew was required. During my consultation, I realised the colour scheme [...]

Home staging – Nottingham. 3 bed terrace.

2013-10-17T18:03:01+00:00

Home Staging in Nottingham - SOLD within a week! This beautiful property had high ceilings and lots of space, but with a busy family living there, it was difficult to see the potential. We decluttered, moved items into storage, and restyled the rooms. My client commented: "Many thanks for all your hard work - the end result looked great and, more to the point, impressed the estate agents!  We got the outcome we were after and this means we can [...]

Home staging in Twycross, Leicestershire. 5 bedrooms.

2013-10-17T18:03:14+00:00

Home Staging in Twycross. This beautiful home had great potential. The large family home had been converted so that the entire ground floor was a separate dwelling, suitable for older members of the family, or grown-up children, or even to be rented. The remainder of the house was on the top two floors. There was an interior stairway to connect the two properties if required, and it was very flexible. The owner was living in the lower apartment, and the upper floors hadn't been lived [...]

How to stage very small rooms when you need to sell your home

2013-10-14T10:52:40+00:00

If you need to sell your home, but the rooms are very small, you are going to have to be brutal - especially if you are still living in the home!  The house I am using as an example is an extreme case, as it was one of the most narrow properties I have worked with, but it demonstrates the the "less is more" theory perfectly, even if you wouldn't need to be quite so extreme in your own home. Here are [...]

Home makeover tip. Clutter

2013-09-24T19:01:06+00:00

CLUTTER When planning any type of home makeover, take a good, honest look around and see how much clutter you really have to deal with.  Now is the time to tackle it, before you start the makeover.  You can't plan effective storage if you don't know exactly what you need to store, so remove everything that shouldn't be in the room. • De-clutter thoroughly before a makeover - every cupboard, every drawer • Analyse everything you have left, and provide [...]
