Who needs it?

Home staging is designed to improve a home for a faster sale or let, whether this is occupied by current owners or a new show home. There are many aspects to the service available, from an initial consultation and written report (for home owners to act on), or a fully managed service including de-cluttering, engagement of trades people, rental or purchase of furniture and accessories, and a total hands-on styling solution.

We work with home owners, estate agents and property developers to provide a highly effective and creative solution.

How we work?

At Optimist Design we understand that this has to be friendly and diplomatic, and carried out with minimum disruption to residents. The service works within your budget to create lifestyle appeal for a new buyer or tenant. Each project is customized to the property, considering architecture, style and target market.
