Below we have outlined the basic process we follow when preparing to dress a property for sale:
Clients with a property to sell come to us directly or are referred by estate agents.
After an initial visit and consultation, we produce a detailed proposal which comments on the current presentation of the property
and our recommendations for improving it. Every property is unique, with features that should be accentuated and other aspects
from which attention should be diverted – we tailor each proposal to suit a property’s specific needs.
Included in the proposal will be a detailed list of furnishings and decorative items drawn from our large in-house stock that we will
use to dress the property. The proposal also details fees and the terms of the contract.
Once instructed, our first step is to thoroughly clean all areas of the property and make any necessary small repairs (replace light
bulbs etc). Should more substantial repairs need to be done, we have trusted and skilled team on hand to help.
Finally, we carefully select items of furniture to install within the property. With over 15 years experience in the property styling
field, we know exactly the right kind of furniture to suit the space and most importantly the target market. Sofas and beds will be
beautifully presented, prints and mirrors hung and smaller decorative items placed to achieve an overall look of comfort and style
which still remains a little aspirational. We understand that time is of the essence when it comes to the property market; we act
quickly and can usually have a property dressed and ready for your chosen agent to launch on the market within a week of
Why should I dress my property?
Properties on the market which are not thoughtfully presented will be at a disadvantage to their furnished counterparts, appearing
unwelcoming and unmemorable to potential buyers. Viewers often find it difficult to imagine how to turn a series of empty rooms
into a homely space. Property dressing is the solution to this problem, ensuring that the property is welcoming and stylish, giving
potential buyers a starting point from which they can begin to imagine living in the space and making it their own.
