Fine & Country Property Staging Re-invents Nottingham Family Home

Fine & Country Property Staging Re-invents Nottingham Family Home

The Old Barn is a four-bedroom family home in the village of Cropwell Butler. When Tom DeVille of Fine & Country Nottingham visited the property for the first time, seeing beyond the clutter and lack of furnishings, he saw the potential in the home that could be achieved with Fine & Country Property Staging's no-hassle services.

Discover how this simple family home in Nottingham was reinvented by our Property Staging team to achieve an above-asking-price offer.

Though the family room had recently been beautifully renovated, it was lacking furniture. Fine & Country Property Staging brought in sofas, a stylish chair and a rug. To complete the room, the team supplied curtains, accessories and artwork. It was important for the client to still access their exercise equipment, so a small storage unit was cleverly used to hide away these items for viewings.

The frequently-used dining kitchen began as a lived-in family space, with children's colourful artwork proudly hanging around the room and art supplies cluttering the work surfaces. With Shaker-style kitchen cabinetry, natural wood furnishings and hanging plants already making for an attractive space, all that needed to be done was to remove personal belongings and clutter to remove distractions and add appeal to potential buyers.

Tidying was required to ready the office for photographs, and the addition of an armchair suggested a break for a quiet coffee admiring the garden.

The existing snug was transformed into a music room, uniting the instruments dotted around the house in one space.

Upstairs required decluttering throughout, and some larger items were replaced with smaller pieces of furniture to give more space in the rooms. ‘Bathroom kits’ were provided for viewings to replace personal items ahead of photos and viewings.

In the garden, arrangements were made for the lawns to be mowed, vignettes were created, and fresh logs were added to the firepit to attract viewers.

Sold for above the asking price

“When I first visited my potential new clients at The Old Barn, I could see that there was an impressive empty room that they had created yet had not furnished due to a decision to relocate to take up a new job. They were understandably hesitant to purchase new furniture that they may not be able to take with them to their new property. Introducing them to our Fine & Country Property Staging team gave them a ‘no hassle’ solution, bringing in the necessary furniture and dressing that made The Old Barn look complete with plenty of ‘wow factor’. Without a doubt, this played a very important part in generating the level of competitive interest that we achieved, leading to our clients to accept an offer in excess of the guide price. From an agent’s point of view, being able to provide professional advice and a solution to dressing their empty room was fundamental in F&C winning the instruction.”
