Furniture Packages

Whether you are selling your property or it’s an investment, such as a buy to let, or even a holiday rental you may consider investing in custom furniture packages.  This can help showcase your property in its best light, making it stand out amongst the market. Empty and bare properties can be hard for potential tenants and buyers to envisage themselves living there. Well-furnished properties can maximise your return with a relatively low cost.

Deciding to furnish your property can seem like an expense compared to unfurnished. However, research has proven that with a furniture package to show off your property you will often let it quicker and for a higher rate.  This has been especially true for apartments within city areas that are attracting young professionals and overseas students.

It is often thought that it will save you money by sourcing items of furniture yourself but it is easy to under estimate the time it will take looking for the right items, negotiating each item dealing with multiple parties to arrange delivery, and then assembling each one of these. The truth is that the time spent may not be worth the money you have saved.

Using a specialist landlord furniture packages provider can help to get the job done quicker, easier and more cost effectively resulting in a hassle free and stress-free process.

It is important to take time to consider the style of the furnishings you require. Appealing to your target audience and target rent can influence the style and level of furnishings you may want to purchase.  For instance, you do not want to furnish a high-level modern penthouse with classic outdated furniture, just as you do not want to spend money on top quality furniture that will be used for student accommodation that will see high turnaround of occupants and usage.

Generally, the style and colour of the furniture packages should be kept quite neutral, enabling the colour to blend in with accessories and items that can be easily exchanged with new tenants. The goal is to ensure that the property looks impersonal yet stylish to appeal to the maximum number of potential tenants and buyers.

Appointing companies that offer design led packages can be the preferred choice, the packages are specially designed for you, making them tailored to the size and style of the property, the target audience, rent and budget are considered throughout the process. Enhancing the home by making it more luxurious and comfortable. Landlords furniture packages are a perfect option for homeowners as well as developers.

This turnkey service is also a popular option for home-staging and showcasing your vacant property to its best.   As well as providing furniture packages for the rental market many suppliers also offer accessory and utility packs that can be used as an additional selling tool ensuring that the property is literally ready for occupancy.  This ensures a service stress free for both the owner as well as the potential tenant.

Specialised living room furniture packages and landlord furniture packages are always popular requests and are available though our bespoke interior design service.

 


Christmas Interior Design

Christmas Interior Design

Christmas Interior Design

The shops are starting to turn festive and it’s time to think of Christmas interior design!  The Season to be merry is nearly upon us, a time where friends and families gather at one or another homes, exchanging gifts, throwing a festive party and a good excuse for a catch up and mulled wine.

It’s a time of year where homeowners naturally start looking at their decorations and start planning their Christmas interior design.  It’s time to update those specific items or rooms and make sure any renovations are due to be completed, ready for the celebrations to start.

It is also a time when we start thinking of buying our Christmas decorations, an essential part of Christmas interior design.  There are so many shops and styles to choose from including a lot of brash and tasteless items out there, but it doesn’t have to be like that. There are no rights or wrongs when choosing a theme, working with what you have is a great place to start, using materials and colours that enhance your interiors rather than detracting from your home.

Of course a real tree can be romantic, emitting the beautiful smell of Christmas.  The nostalgic feeling of picking the right one for your home can be a magical time for the family.  However, with the increasing need to think of the environment it is important to think of the consequence.  A couple of years ago we went for the faux option with a magical visit to a Christmas tree farm for some family fun activities. There are so many fantastic looking artificial trees out there with integrated lights, that can be reused year after year – and no mess. They can be embellished with additional stems and berries creating a more fuller woodland look, one of the themes that is looking popular for Christmas 2019.

Less is more is often used when displaying decorations.  There is no need to buy all new each year.  Having those few that you have collected over the years with special memories is key to creating a homely, cosy Christmas and mixed in with your main theme can create a wonderfully traditional look.

The key trends this year are all based on simplicity and elegance with the use of bold colours such as deep burgundy, dark blue and the classic forest green combined with a mixed use of materials and textures using natural products, such as pine cones decorated with muted metallics like rose gold, copper or bronze. The classic glass ornament adds a vintage touch to your Christmas looking elegant and stylish.

The traditional wreath is an important part of Christmas interior design, not only for decor but for its historic and symbolic value.  There is such a variety of styles of wreaths in the stores that we’re sure to find one that matches our décor.  Alternatively, you can create your own Christmas wreath (either at a wreath making party with a professional on hand to help or at home).   This is popular and growing trend and ensures that it can be made to match your style perfectly.

The rustic natural organic look is another key trend to Christmas 2019 that we are pleased to see return to popularity.  This works exceptionally well with the woodland themed wreath.  An ideal way to express this is through by collecting branches, twigs, eucalyptus, evergreen, spruce berries and pinecones, and using them to create an original centrepiece.  Done simply, this approach can create a beautiful natural look.

The key feature of Christmas day is the dining table.  We’ve found that using one or two basic colours and a theme is enough.  It’s all too easy to overdo the element of Christmas interior design.  This is a perfect place to introduce the muted metallics that are trending this year, with the use of bronze napkin rings, or rose gold place settings. Candles can create a beautiful and elegant centre piece. Remember keep simple – less is more.
