Interior Design Consultation with Customer

 

Interior Design

Interior Design - Commercial

Interior Design and interior decoration  

 

We are often asked the question - "What is the difference between an Interior designer and an Interior decorator? 

 

The answer is that Interior designers and Interior Design Companies offer services which may include structural design alterations. That is knocking down walls, opening up spaces or adding false walls or ceilings to create design features for instance. An interior designer has knowledge about structural issues and fixtures and fittings. Where as an Interior Decorator is skilled with the Interior Decor  - that is the wall coverings, floorings, window treatments, furniture, soft furnishings, colour schemes, design themes and final design features. 

     

Both an Interior Designer and Interior Decorator can suggest Bedroom interior design , Bathroom design ideas, modern interior design, living rooms designs etc. but if you require Structural design then you need a qualified Interior Designer. An Interior Designer may also call upon the services of a structural surveyor or architect if structural alterations or plans are required.

   

HouseWow® Interior Styling Consultations

3 Top tips to find reliable trades people

1) Always employ a specialist as a general handyman may take longer and charge as much because of the hourly rate.

2) Get a recommendation and check references from previous customers, check trades registrations and trades qualifications.

3) Trades rates. Get a written fixed price quotation (not estimate) for work and avoid paying open-ended hourly fees.  If you try to save VAT by paying cash to a tradesperson you are unlikely to receive a receipt or a guarantee for work completed.

How do I sell my property faster at maximum selling price?

    

Firstly consider which professionals and services you need in the selling process and find the best services available.

   

Secondly you need to get your property ready to sell.

   

Testing the market.  Many people make the mistake of getting a valuation and putting a for sale board up to test the market. However this can go badly wrong. Would you try and sell a second hand car without changing the bald tyre and giving it a wash and polish? 

        

Presentation is king. When selling your most expensive asset - your property - its important to get your property presented in the best condition to sell at the right price and sell in the quickest time.

    

Maximum selling price. The best chance of a fast sale at maximum price is to appeal to the serious buyer who has already assessed the available property, got their finance and solicitor in place. These buyers watch new property coming onto the market for the right deal and will pay the right price for the condition its in. 

     

To present your property at its best you need to decide how much to spend and what to prioritise. At House Wow!® we help you to consider all the vital facts and to reach the best decision for your circumstances and budget.

   

Is selling fast the priority?  

 

If so then a quick declutter, clean and dress with style is the best action to sell at the best price, faster. Allow buyers to see the property's potential.

   

Is selling at maximum selling price the priority? 

 

House Wow!® advise on home staging, decoration and possible repair priorities which will improve the perceived and real value of your property whilst bearing in mind the ceiling price (best possible price in the given market according to your estate agent valuations) and the likely market (potential buyers and what their style/needs and aspirations are likely to be).

 

Top Tip 1: Save hundreds and often thousands of pounds with the services of an Online Estate Agent to sell your home. Anita Richardson give the Best Online Estate Agent recommendation.

How do I sell property in a challenging market?

  

When selling property there are a number of considerations and costs to take into account. 

   

Choosing an estate agent.  Many sellers still chose a local estate agent because of the personal service, availability of an office to call into and the high street location affording local window shoppers the opportunity to see your property particulars. 

 

Some estate agents are independents and may only have a few local branches. Others are National estate agent networks linking all of their property UK wide.

 

75% of buyers find property by browsing and registering for new property alerts on internet property portals such as Right Move who host many estate agents property details. 

    

Research the internet marketing that your estate agent uses including their own web site and property portals that they may use.  

 

Conveyancing solicitors can be found locally, sometimes operating within the Estate Agent practice or Online Conveyancing Solicitors who offer a range of services with competitive prices.

     

Consider Mortgage and financial advice early on before you need to make an offer on the next property or it may hold up your chain. 

 

What is an EPC - Energy Performance Certificate? The EU Directive 2002/91/EC aims to promote improvements in the energy performance of buildings. The EU directive requires an energy performance certificate for all dwellings at the time of sale. The EPC certificate gives prospective purchasers an easy to read guide to the likely energy costs of occupying the property in a similar way that current 'white goods' have an efficiency label. 

    

A brief History of the demise of HIPs: Home owners Information Packs. HIPs became compulsory for all property entering the market from 14th December 2007. However, the new Conservative Lib-Dem coalition government suspended the HIPs packs with immediate effect on 20th May 2010. Homes marketed for sale on or after 21 May 2010 no longer require a Home Information Pack (HIP).

       

To ensure a quick house sale its essential to make wise choices of professional property presentation services.  Your local House Wow!® Property Stylist will be pleased to offer an Initial Property Consultation - Contact  us now.

   

   

How do I choosing an interior designer, home stager or property stylist?

    

When deciding to carry out home staging work, install a show home or plan for a home makeover you will need to feel confident that the person or company has the credentials to carry out the work to the highest standards. 

    

Firstly check their portfolio. Check that the images are property of real customers and not not 'stock photo' images just bought in. 

   

Ask for references, check that previous customers will recommend their work.

   

Check qualifications and experience. Check that they are insured for public liability insurance in case anything should go wrong. 

  

Check that they are registered with the data protection to show they know and support the legislation to ensure that your information remains confidential. 

    

Check that their company is properly registered with a business registration number. 

  

Do they have a team of people - so that if you need a fast turnaround job or someone is ill or on holiday they can call on a number of people?

  

Check that they provide a total quotation in writing with terms and conditions written by a solicitor so that it complies with trading laws that protect the customer as well as the business.

  

All of the images on the HouseWow web site are real customer projects, some started as empty property and were fully kitted out with furniture, accessories, curtains, blinds, flooring and decoration, others started as property which was de-cluttered and styled with existing furniture.  

           

Happy hunting for your ideal home staging and interior design professional!  If you feel that your search has ended here - please contact us and we will be pleased to chat with you about your requirements.
