Added a modern feel to the bathroom with paint and giving the existing tiles black grout lines.

When it comes to selling a property you want to achieve the most you possibly can, so when Janet approached me she advised that the property had been rented out for years and now she would like it sold, Janet had already given the tenants notice and they had moved out, as this was to go on the market we needed a quick turn around.

When styling to sell it is very different as you are not working with a clients brief of how they use their home or even what they like and dislike. You need to look at the property itself to see who it would appeal to, i.e. young families or maybe a starter property. when you gather all that dater you can then come up with a design that would suit the ideal buyer.

the kitchen and longe was closed off and made the rooms downstairs feel small and dark, as we were on a tight budget we had to consider all the cost of the changes as you don’t want to spend more than you will achieve so knowing the market in that area is also beneficial.

The wall between the lounge and kitchen was not a supporting wall so could be removed very cheaply and they would gain so much more light and clear sight lines front to back, it also allowed for a dinning table for 4/6 rather than 2.

To bring the property up-to date and entice buyers we painted the wooden kitchen cupboards and shelves in a mid grey, painted the tiles in a copper colour. all walls were repainted to freshen up and tome with the kitchen and make it feel lighter and larger.

We removed the carpets and replaced them all in a silver grey rather than a dirty cream.

The bathroom had clean white tiles and to give a more modern feel we painted this in a rich emerald green and the tile grout was transformed with grout pens to black. adding drama and texture.

The new buyer has a modern looking home and all they have to do as add their own colour tastes and personal touches to make it feel theres.


The client was very happy with the look we suggested and had us start work immediately. As soon as it went on the market it sold in the first day and had many viewings on that day, also much to the clients delight we had added £20,000 profit to the property from the original agents proposed listing price.

Just taking you self outside your likes for a home can make a huge difference when you come to sell, you have to design for the type of buyers for that individual property.
