We caught up with them to find out more about some of their latest projects, and we couldn’t believe the transformation!
Empty New Builds
One of Lemon & Limes services to fully furnish empty properties, transforming them into a home a buyer can picture themselves living in.
“This property already had high-quality features, which meant we had a really good base to start with. We added suitable furniture and accessories, along with bespoke window dressings throughout. This was the developer’s first project so he wanted a beautifully presented home right from the start to enable him to achieve the best possible price. Within 2 weeks of us furnishing his show home, before having been launched to the market, our client received his first offer.”
“This property was fitted out to a high specification with a beautiful timeless shaker style kitchen. With white walls throughout, the rooms were in need of personality to help buyers to visualise themselves in the space. We installed modern lighting in the main living space and a fantastic chandelier in the master bedroom to continue the contemporary style throughout. Separating the open plan living space gave each area a purpose and helped buyers to see where their furniture would best fit.”
Lived in properties
A much-loved home has quirks and charms of years’ worth of memories displayed throughout. Lemon & Lime Interiors work with those looking to sell their own properties to ensure they are best presented to appeal to a wide range of buyers. They even take care of the dreading de-clutter we’ve all avoided for years! Still need more convincing? Take a look at these transformations…
“This late 19th century, Grade II Listed, family house needed some de-cluttering, tidying up and decorating. We were working around the family who were still living in the property so made sure there wasn’t too much disruption to their day to day lives. We paid particular attention to the kitchen and were conscious that any purchaser would want to replace the kitchen and create an open plan space. The kitchen was dark and dated so to attract buyers we painted the walls and cabinetry in a lighter colour.
We worked with the homeowner to ensure every room had the attention it needed. We moved furniture around to see where it best fit and we introduced accessories where necessary. It was important to make minimal changes to the children’s rooms; one of the main changes we made was hiding the brightly coloured duvet with a clean white bedspread and throw.
The property was launched to the market on the Monday and by the Thursday a sale had been agreed at the asking price.
The vendors spent just 0.5% of the property’s guide price – a small investment for maximum impact.”
“We professionally presented this lovely, three storey family home which had been left partially vacant for a number of years.
The agent asked us to get involved before the property was launched to the market. We assisted the client by packing and moving their possessions to storage, completely redecorating the property and organising a full clean of the house. We then fully furnished the house, giving each room a purpose and demonstrating the property’s sense of space. 17 viewings were booked within the first two days of it being advertised and the client received five offers of the guide price and above, within the first month of it being on the market. Fully furnishing the house cost 1.1% of the guide price.
