Staging for New Homes & Show Homes

Introducing buyers to a lifestyle they'll love

We provide busy developers with options to rent or purchase stunning Show Home interiors.

Specialising in cost effective solutions for large sites, one off builds or renovations, we will ensure that you receive the perfect Show Home package.

Our service is fast, flexible and fully project managed. Once we have your requirements you can relax and leave the rest to us.

Elegant, tasteful interiors in keeping with your style of build, target market and brand will be delivered on time and on budget.

Please read below to see the additional services that we can provide if required.


Why do I need a Show Home?

Empty properties do not appeal to potential buyers so tend to take much longer to sell and achieve lower prices than staged homes. A skilfully staged show home helps buyers imagine themselves living in the property and is more likely to convert viewings into sales. Staging a show home can help to maximise your return on investment and achieve a much quicker sale.

What does the design and installation service include?

Our one-off fee includes a complete interior design and furnishing package for your show home with none of the spiralling costs and significant hours invested in sourcing and purchasing all the goods yourself. We will supply an original creative design to enhance and represent the style, quality and character of your property. Our team of professional stagers will deliver and install every piece of furnishing according to the detailed floorplan including the making up of beds, hanging of artwork and styling of all rooms. On completion we’ll arrange for a property shoot by a specialist lifestyle photographer to supply a portfolio of superb images for your marketing launch.

Do you provide extra services for Show Homes?

Yes we do. Staging a show home is a highly specialised process involving close co-operation with the developer, marketing team and estate agent. We provide additional design services for show homes. These include:

  • A full interior design consultation service during both the project planning and first fix stages. We can advise on all aspects of interior design from flooring, colour schemes and tile finishes to lighting, window dressings and room layout.
  • We will research and source goods and liaise with decorators on your behalf - saving you time and money.
  • We include ceiling shades in our all-inclusive quotes and can also supply specialist feature lighting which can later be relocated to another property or sold on to the buyer as part of a sales incentive. Similarly, we can source and install window dressings as an additional service.
  • It’s essential that your show home be presented immaculately at all times so we will source and direct a local cleaning professional on your behalf.
  • Our all-inclusive packages include up to 200 high quality professional photographs and we can also arrange for a professionally produced video tour of the property for you to share online to attract the highest levels of interest.
  • As well as providing a raft of high quality images for you to use online and in your brochures, we can also supply professional marketing copy and content to describe every element of your property in detail to potential buyers.
  • For larger numbers of properties or developers with a succession of projects, we offer furniture ‘bundles’ for sale as a more cost effective solution for repeated use. We will either relocate the contents to another show home location or you may choose to offer a ‘turn key home’ option to your buyer and recoup your costs.
  • We work closely with a range of agency professionals and will use our experience and regional knowledge to advise you on the most appropriate estate agent for your particular property.
What does furniture rental include?

Drawing upon our large inventory of high quality furniture and accessories, we can supply interior schemes to all sizes of home. We have furnishings to suit every style of property from contemporary new builds to character developments in either urban or rural settings. Every item used in the staging of a property is included in the rental price. You can expect larger items like beds and sofas as well as art work, mirrors, rugs, lamps, bed linen, kitchen items, tableware, faux plants and flowers, window dressings, cushions, throws and all those carefully chosen accessories that make a house feel luxurious. Every item will be perfectly placed to showcase your hard work and help potential buyers visualise the desirable lifestyle on offer.

What is part staging?

In addition to staging all rooms we also offer a part staging service which includes just the key rooms in a property - typically the kitchen, living room, main bedroom and family bathroom. This option can provide the essential images at a minimum cost.

83% of developers said staging increased the offer price typically between 8 and 15%
100% of developers said their staged properties sold faster than unstaged ones
100% of developers said staging increased the number of viewings

Show Home “Purchase” Service

For longer term contracts, purchasing the entire furniture bundle is a more cost-effective solution.

We can either relocate the contents to another Show Home or sell a “Turn Key Home” to your buyer to repay your costs.

We offer a cost effective service to relocate the items for you, see details below.

Do you want your properties to POP from the screen?

Empty and colourless rooms are difficult to photograph, and potential buyers may struggle to visualise where their furniture will fit. THSC Show Home designers produce one-of-a-kind Show Homes that draw attention, represent the style, character, and quality of your properties, and instil confidence in your purchasers.

How much will a Show Home cost to stage?

For an accurate price it’s best to contact us for an individual quote. The cost for staging show homes depends on size, specifications and the intended market.

We are happy to offer a free quote for creating a show home and curating a collection of our rental of furniture designed to appeal directly to your potential buyers. We base our estimate on the style of your build, the guide price and your target market.

Design, delivery, installation, assembly and styling fees are all included in our rental packages. Packages start from £1000 per month. Our furniture purchase packages start at £7,000 plus VAT. This is a cost effective option for busy developers working on multiple projects.

How long will the Show Home process take?

We are able to offer a fast turnaround, with show homes created and installed form two weeks after the contract is agreed, depending on your specification.

What is the process?

The show home process is very simple – we understand the demands of working to a tight schedule. Simply send us a floor plan, any CGI images and/or a link to Rightmove as well as a description of your ideal buyer. From this information we’ll then email you a no-obligation quote which includes indicative design visuals and inventory information for each room.

If you wish to go ahead, we’ll complete a site visit to collect measurements and discuss timescales for installation.  Once the show home installation is complete, we will arrange a portfolio of impactful, creative photography for your sales launch.
