Life-changing home makeover in Stafford.

A home makeover can change your life forever. This one was huge, and had an enormous impact on the whole family (Mum, Dad and four boys). My client said:

“I don’t think we will ever live in such cluttered surroundings again as we did when you first came to see us, I just refuse to when I see how beautiful a home can look without it. I think the family are starting to get the hang of it – though the boys rooms can still be messy sometimes, and M leaves a trail of tools behind him. For myself I have got even better at throwing away stuff – and I hope the others will eventually catch the bug from me. M did actually thank me for clearing up his office last week while he was away – rather than blow his top which was what everyone predicted – so I call that progress.”

It takes a lot of courage to invite someone into your home and admit that you need help with it. This client was considering selling the home to make a move down south, but knew she would have to drop the price unless she made some improvements. Following the home staging/makeover, she had a few valuations and was delighted that one agent commented on how tidy it was… and another offered lower set-up rates because I had supplied the photographs!

My client recommended me to a friend, who also loved my ideas for her home. She said

“We are both saying why didn’t we make our homes beautiful straight away
when we moved in – why did it take until we were leaving before we made the
effort? And we both say that next move – it will be full steam ahead with
cushions, curtains and paint to make a really lovely home to enjoy.”

They had both watched House Doctor programs in the past, but like many of my clients, they didn’t know where to start.
