What is involved in home styling?
The Styling Edge starts the Home Styling process with a consultation that provides an objective look at your house. We tour the house and make detailed suggestions on what changes or repairs may need to be made. We also discuss timeline, budget, and priorities with you. Once a strategy is agreed upon, we begin transforming your home. Trades can be brought in to quote on work that needs to be done if required; we assess the furniture, artwork and accessories that are available to us and do the necessary shopping; and in a very short period of time, your house is made ready for the real estate market.
Can I live in my house while it is styled?
We have found that to keep your home looking its best and to ensure that our furniture and homewares are kept in the best condition, it is best to not live in your home for the duration of hire. Our clients find this much easier so that they aren’t having to put everything back in its place for open homes. If you will need to remain in the property we will work with you to ensure the house is looking fantastic at realestate open homes.
Does Styling Edge own their own furniture?
We sure do! All of the furniture you see is owned by us. We do not sub hire from larger rental companies. All of our looks are curated by our stylists and designed with your home in mind. We make sure that our furniture is on trend and appeals to your buyer.
Should empty houses be styled?
Yes, because it is hard for buyers to get a sense of the space without furniture in it. Without furniture the focus goes to negative details such as odd-shaped rooms, lack of architectural detail, or inadequate size. Furthermore, empty spaces tend to feel cold and uninviting. With property styling, we can create a warm inviting home that buyers can start to imagine living in.
Should every house be styled?
Yes we think so! How you decorate your home to live in and how you decorate it to sell are very different. The decorating choices you make for your home may suit your taste and lifestyle but they may not suit those of a wide range of potential buyers and may not show off your home’s best attributes. When you make the decision to sell your home you must begin the process of detaching yourself from it. Even the most beautiful home needs to be de-personalised so potential buyers can imagine themselves living in it. Your home is now a commodity to be sold and it must appeal to a broad audience of potential buyers.
Homebuyers are typically looking for bright, clean, spacious homes with great flow. Many buyers have difficulty picturing themselves and their belongings in a home if it is cluttered and has outdated decor. The Styling Edge can make the small changes that can have the biggest impact. Cleaning, de-cluttering, de-personalising, organising, and some repositioning of furniture is needed in every home, and these adjustments can have an enormous effect on how the house is viewed.

How long does it take to style a home?
Our property styling installation takes between 4 and 6 hours
What return can I expect on my investment in home Styling?
Your home is your greatest investment so you want to make sure that it is in the best possible condition before putting it on the market. Our goal is to ensure that your house sells quickly rather than lingering on the market. Homes that sell in the first month get the best offer, so when we get your home sold quickly then you will get the highest offer(s) possible. The cost of home styling is often less than the first price reduction on an un-staged home. You may also want to consider the emotional toll of a house lingering on the market, the stress of your house not selling at all or eventually selling for less; and the strain of keeping your house in immaculate shape for multiple showings and Open Houses. The stress reduction alone can make Home Staging well worth it.
Can I use some of my own furniture?
Unless the furniture piece fits in with the design and is the optimum piece for the property, for maximum impact we request removal of all furniture.
Can I just hire soft furnishing pieces?
Yes but to make sure you are getting the maximum impact that will give your home the styling edge there is a $2000 minimum spend
How can I find time to carry out your suggestions, or be actively involved? I have a busy life.
Preparing a house for the real estate market is different for everyone. Some people love to be involved in the home staging process while others prefer to go on holiday during the work phase. You can have as little or as much involvement as you like. We understand that when you have a full schedule, the whole process can seem overwhelming. It is our mission to make the transition as seamless as possible for our clients. We take care of it so that you don’t have to!
