Our client had lived in this fabulous 5 bed Edwardian villa in Maidenhead, Berkshire for 20+ years.  They were looking to downsize.


The property was spread over three floors and as part of our consultation, it was evident that there were a number of areas which neede tackling.  These included:

  • address pigeon issue - we called in a specialist firm to address this

  • remove and replace flooring

  • decor in key areas including dining room, hallway and bedrooms and landing on top floor

  • new blinds on a number of windows

  • decor in dining room

  • prep and stain vestibule door and banister - what an incredible feature these are!

  • address electrical issues

  • repairs throughout eg. plasterboard, plaster hole and décor in ceiling and recreate coving in hallway

  • prepare and paint external paintwork around front door

  • fit door knocker

  • add more storage capability in box room

  • replace/add door handles

  • remove overgrown shrubs in front garden, cut back hedge on road side, add planting to front and rear

  • clear out 2nd floor completely before decorating adding new carpets and staging

  • remove out damaged furniture generally

  • sort through family possessions and move to new locations or dispose of (within home, charity and refuse)

  • complete staging solution by turning games room into dining room

  • create new dining nook in kitchen

  • create new home office

  • accessorising throughout and blending our pieces with our client's existing incredible pieces

When we finished, we took professional images and shared these with our client and their estate agent.  Within 4 days of being listed for sale, this home was sold.  Our repair and staging added over £100k to the home's value.  Our client was very happy!

Property sold on day 4 and we increased the property value by £100k!

Deciding to work with sort style and stage is one of the best decisions I ever made. Ceri completely transformed a tired and dated house (and person) into something amazing (the house, not the person! )

She took the stress out of everything, and approached the project with extreme professionalism, a keen eye and incredible efficiency. She has an amazing ability to see what needs to be done, and is able to do this whilst still respecting personal taste. The end result is a house which appeals to a wide range of people, and which has increased in value.

Ceri’s has an enviable talent for sourcing goods and services, and her team is also brilliant. They are responsive, respectful and very good at their jobs.

I don’t have the words to recommend sort style and stage highly enough - they’ve given me back a house I had once loved but had fallen out of love with, and they’ve done it with speed, sensitivity and all round brilliance!
