What is home styling?

Simply put, home styling – also referred to as home staging – is the art of presenting and enhancing a home’s features, maximising its best qualities for public display. Pre-sales styling is a unique, emerging industry specialising in styling homes to make them more attractive to potential buyers and help get that sale!

I’m Selling, Why style it?

Creating a strong first impression is one of the most important parts of any sales process. Research suggests that first impressions are formed within eight to thirty seconds, and visual appeal plays a crucial role in getting your ‘foot in the door’ with the customer.

Home stylists utilise a number of different skills that help potential buyers visualise themselves living in the home. Staging to sell is a great way to ensure your home will appeal to a broad range of buyers and help ensure a faster sale at the best possible price.

What We Do

Our aim is to work with you to achieve a beautifully presented home that will leave an instant impression on potential buyers. It’s important to us that you enjoy the experience and build confidence in our process as we work together to achieve the best outcome possible.

We understand the way you want to present your home is very different from how it looks day-to-day. We understand that buyers expect an exceptional standard of presentation when they take that first look at your property. And we also understand the pressure you feel in trying to make your home look like it belongs in the feature article of an interior design magazine.

This is where we come in. We are help to help you and guide you through the entire process.

The first step is to determine the level of styling that best suits you and your home. We look at all of the available options and consult with you to decide which of our home staging options will be of greatest benefit, whether it be a thorough room-by-room checklist of furniture and arrangement guidelines or simply the addition of soft furnishings such as cushions, rugs or lamps to brighten your home’s appeal. If your property is vacant we are also able to hire furniture and accessories to create that ‘lived-in’ look.

I provide your no fuss, no stress solution to a beautifully presented property.

I had never used a service like Catherine’s before and it was truly an eye opener! The quality of her work and eye for detail was amazing; it was very refreshing to deal with someone who delivered on every level.
