The art of designing and styling a property is a skill that takes time and practice to master. While many people have a natural flair for decorating, interior design and property styling is a different exercise altogether. In terms of property styling or staging, with the specific intent of preparing a home for sale requires not only a good eye but a sound knowledge of styling principles and the ability to create spaces that majority of buyers will like. We then combine this with years of experience and education in marketing, design and real estate sales and we have the background, knowledge and practical skills to ensure your property achieves the best result possible. What is important to remember is that property styling is not about creating a design style that is personalised to your tastes. Property Styling is about removing the personal element and offering potential buyers a neutral, simple canvas where they can visualise themselves living.
