What is the Home-Staging?

Sell or rent a home today has become a long and tedious task. Banks, real estate agencies and individuals are seeking new strategies to quickly seduce the customer interest. One is the Home Staging. The goal is to get the most out of a home for sale through visual optimization.

“The decision to buy a home is taken in the first 90 seconds of the visit”

An empty house always looks smaller, cold and unwelcoming, that lessens the impact of the visit and the opportunity to get the “crush” of a potential buyer. The potential buyer needs to imagine him/herself living there.

Home staging is not the same as decoration or interior, it does not try to put the property at the owner’s taste, but to closer the taste of all potential buyers, creating more neutral environments, making the most of the available space and lighting.

Cardboard furniture stand out for its fast assembly, light weight and portability, being able to have ready the full furnishing of the house in minutes.

    To whom this may Concern

    I am a developer in London, and i think what you have created is a very good idea, i am surprised that this hasn’t come into fashion in London, with so many developments going on, and the hassle with real furniture to show flats, is a real hassle, this what you have created would make things so much easier,

    Could someone from the management please contact me, so we can discuss a potential collaboration here in London,

    Many Thanks in advance.
