Our furniture and furnishings rental services is ideal for property developers and house builders, working on a smaller number of projects at a time, who want to set their properties above the others by presenting them at their best; creating a lifestyle to encourage prospective buyers to mentally move in.
The initial meeting and brief:
As this Property Developer wanted a little more support on top of the furniture and furnishings hire
, they requested our design assistance service.
After the initial telephone conversation we arranged to visit the site to look at the overall project and gauge where our design input would be most cost effective.
We discussed the spaces, the budget, the timescale and their ideal buyers. With this information the brief was created and confirmed:
The refurbishment of a very tired and abused Victorian 2-bed terraced house into a beautiful, eye-catching property to generate more interest and a quick sale; providing advice on how to best utilise what was already there thus keeping the budget to a minimum. Suggestions for decor schemes, fixtures and fittings throughout to be in-keeping with and enhance the original period features with options to purchase certain items through Design Fix. Following the completed refurbishment, dress the whole property with our rental furniture and accessories as appropriate.
The client kept us abreast of the progress on site, sending regular photographs. When they came across any decisions relating to the design or finishes we were on hand to advise on choices, mostly possible over email, video chats, sending photos and messages. As an add-on we created scheme boards for the main rooms to demonstrate our vision for the spaces in terms of decor, providing costings for the supply or wallpapers, light fittings, tiles, flooring and window blinds.
As the client wanted to take advantage of our trade contacts and savings, they asked us to supply the wallpapers, paints, faux wood venetian blinds, flooring, tiles/grout and the light fittings. We had everything delivered to site, clearly labelled, for the client to arrange installation.
