Furniture and furnishings for hire

Style and sell your empty property in the Northwest

Our hassle-free furniture and furnishings packages for hire are ideal for house builders, property developers and investors wanting a better return on their investment. We don't just supply the furniture...we style the space!

A beautifully presented home is the most effective marketing tool for selling or renting. Adding furniture gives a room purpose and provides scale; adding the finishing touches creates the lifestyle to enticing the viewers to mentally move in, encouraging faster sales and higher offer prices.

If you present prospective buyers with a grey or beige empty house, the same as all the other newly built or renovated properties on the market, they will knock you down on price. If you create a home they really want, they will find the asking price or more.

We've achieved many great results with our staged properties selling within a few days of hitting the market, often for more than expected smashing the ceiling price for the street.

Why should you stage a property on the market?...

Below are a few more reasons why staging a property on the market is the best, tried and tested way to boost its sale.

  • Make it 'scroll-stopping'... The property market is fierce; staging your property, along with professional photography, helps your listing to stand out whilst potential buyers scroll through the listing on various property portals like Rightmove or Zoopla.
  • Attract and keep their attention... Empty rooms rarely keep a viewers attentions for more than a few seconds. Give them something to look at to capture their imagination and keep them engaged for longer.
  • Make it memorable... When a potential buyer is visiting numerous properties, an empty house isn't memorable. We create a look to distinguish it from the others with a point of reference.
  • Make it obvious... More often than not, viewers can not visualise a space in use: will their sofa or double bed fit in the room? Take away the doubt with our rental furniture. 
  • Make it easy to understand... Open plan spaces can be often be confusing or overwhelming for viewers; what is the space for? What goes where? We style and zone the room to make space instantly understandable, showing them what can be achieved. 
  • Remove the confusion... The purpose of an empty room can be unclear, especially in a single story dwelling such as a flat, apartment or bungalow. We give each room a logical, defined purpose to avoid confusion. 
  • Make them want your property... Staging and styling a property on the market creates a desirable lifestyle the viewers can imagine themselves living in, encouraging the emotional connection. Show and sell them their dream!

How much does it cost to hire furniture to stage a house on the market?

Typically, furniture rental prices start from £2100 to dress a one-bed studio apartment for two months. The rental term can be longer if required or extended on a month by month bases. The price is totally dependent on the size and number of rooms to be furnished. Each property is individually assessed.

At Design Fix we aim to use appropriate furniture for the purpose of the room; for the style of the property; and, for the size of the space. Accessories are chosen to create a lifestyle to appeal to the target market.

phone consultation


All our services start with an initial phone consultation, which is absolutely free. We get to know you; your property; your target market, all whilst you get to know us and what we can do to help you sell your empty, unoccupied property. We should be able to give you a ball-park figure for providing this service based the size of the property and the number of rooms to be styled.

All we would need is a digital floor plan and photographs of the property and an idea of your budget.
We will show you examples of the type, style and quality of furniture and furnishings you can expect to receive, including a list of items to be supplied in each room. Everything can be discussed and prepared over email and via phone calls.

Installation usually takes place over 1 or 2 days dependent on the size of the property and usually within 2 weeks of the order confirmation and payment. We can sometimes accommodate a faster turn-around if needed. It's always worth asking.

Typically, prices start from £2100 for 2 months rental of furniture and furnishings to stage a one-bed studio apartment. It all depends on the size of the size and number of rooms. Every property is assessed individually. The price includes delivery, installation and removal by our professional team and interior stylists. If you send the floor plans to us we can give you an idea of what it will cost to dress your property, with a general overview on the style, for free. However, as a full design scheme with mood boards takes a long time to put together we charge £168 for a full proposal which, if you go ahead, will be deducted from the price of the hire service. If you don't go ahead you can always use the mood boards as a guide to do it yourself. 

NOTE: As you will be responsible for the items within your property, the supply is dependent upon the property owner having contents insurance cover for the duration of the contract.

Design Assist Programme and staging

"I used Design Fix to stage one of my flips and it sold in 3 days!! Now I use Susie for all of my projects. Not only do they all sell first week on the market, the first person to view offers full asking!!

Susie has also helped me with the design elements throughout the refurb, including tweaking layouts to maximise the potential of the property and bringing colour and vibrancy to an otherwise lifeless empty property. She has proven an invaluable asset to my business."
