Research carried out in 2019 by Rightmove shows that Staged properties sell for 8% more than those that are not and 95% of staged homes sell much quicker!
Home Staging is the art of preparing and dressing a property in readiness to sell or rent, aiming to increase its value, its potential, and making it appeal to buyers, and to tenants, and the broader market.
A decision is usually made within the first few moments of entering your property, so first impressions really do count!
Tired decor, or a cluttered home will stop potential purchasers from seeing your property’s best features. If your property has been on the market for too long, it may be that a few simple steps that will transform your home and make it more appealing for potential buyers/ tenants to want to view it.
Lesley Ann Interiors looks at your property from the eyes of the Buyer/ tenant and will give you the expertise and advise to help you make your property welcoming, attractive, and desirable, whilst working within budget, and within a timescale.
All the properties we have prepared for sale, or rental, have always received lots of interest, plenty of viewings and a sale in minimal time.

We can also arrange any repairs – inside and out.
When I purchased my first house, I knew I wanted to make it my own but it all seemed overwhelming. Glad I found Lesley! She created a mood board for my living room that I really loved – based on a briefing document, a conversation, images of things I like, and furniture I owned that I wanted to feature. She brought in trusted tradesmen from the area which really helped as I had no contacts myself and they did a great job. Loved all the items she picked and all within budget. I’ve gotten many compliments already from friends and family, it looks beautiful, cozy, and really helped me feel at home in my new place.Eve H, Bletchley,
“I sought Lesley’s help and advice to get my property looking welcoming before putting it on the market. I had a few ideas but Lesley’s input to the colours I should use in my hallway to link to other rooms and suit the style of the house was invaluable. She is passionate about what she does and has great vision. I have since called on Lesley to help with other projects – despite being out of her expertise, she happily took them on and gave me great guidance in styling the accommodation when I set up my new glamping business this year and I am pleased to report that my Property in London sold in no time!”S Longbourne, London,
We have previously worked with Lesley on a couple of projects, so she was our first choice for a bigger construction and design for an ensuite bathroom. She was also able to bring in a plumber, Master of Maintenance, for the actual build itself. We already had a good idea of what we wanted to include in the design, but not how to bring it all together. In addition to design, advising and sourcing on the various products, Lesley suggested colours that helped the room flow from the bedroom. She produced mood boards to narrow down choices, and ‘shopping’ lists with products and prices listed to make it as easy as possible for us to pull the project together. Lesley also sourced, mid-build, alternative solutions when needed (often last minute). We are 100% happy with the end result and highly recommend!Claire – Woburn Sands,
When I moved into my new home I wanted to convert the ensuite bathroom from an old bath to a stylish shower.Having seen other projects that Lesley had worked on I decided to engage her to design my new ensuite and project manage the transformation.I sat down with Lesley and talked her through my thoughts for the room which she took away and very quickly came back to me with a few options for the design, furniture, flooring and accessories, one of which I really loved.Lesley then helped me source the items and managed the tradesmen rip out the old bathroom and build the new modern looking ensuite.I have attached before and after pictures – it’s such a transformation and I am so happy with the work and finish of the room.Lesley was a pleasure to work with, she offered a number of ideas and options and nothing was too much for her.Lesley certainly delivered on her promises and I would have no hesitation recommending her personally, her work and the tradesmen she works with.Mr Harding – Wavendon,
We were living in Australia and looking to sell our house in Milton Keynes. The house had been let for over 5 years and was in need of some sprucing up. Unable to get back to the UK we were very daunted with the task that lay ahead. Thank goodness we found Lesley-Ann interiors!
An initial contact via Skype confirmed she was the women for the job. With Lesley-Anns contacts our house was repainted inside and out, removal and fitting of a new carpet in the bedroom and dressing area, minor fixes inside as well as garden tidied, outside area jetwashed and roof repair. All competitively priced with a few discounts thrown in.
The property was then ready for styling/staging. Lesley-Ann walked us through the process and was attentive to what we wanted and open to our suggestions, as well as organising everything.
We’ve had weekly updates on progress , more when needed. When the property was ready to sell Lesley ann has continued to pop in weekly to ensure the property remains in tip top condition and has organised a weekly gardener. Lesley-ann has made the whole process stress free…which is priceless.
Lesley-Ann service is worth every penny and is very competitively priced. we now have a number of offers on our property whilst others nearby are still waiting to be sold.
I cannot sing her praises highly enough. Lesley-ann IS what you are looking for ….and more.J. Thunder – Australia,
I asked Lesley Ann Interiors to take on a 2-room project – how to bring the two bedrooms together and update for a soon-to-be teen boy, and allow the rooms to grow with him. She advised on colour solutions to get the two rooms to flow together and how to place the furniture we had, alongside additional items to maximise storage as well as space. The mood boards showed us all this, including suggested accessories, and these very importantly had buy-in from the boy himself. I was taking on the project management myself, but Lesley Ann provided all details for paint and blinds, as well as a shopping list for IKEA (very useful as all we had to do was hit a button for delivery) and a list of all the suggested accessories, which meant that I just had to go online to source and buy when ready. In addition, Lesley Ann advised when it looked like IKEA was about to discontinue certain items so we could do a quick purchase before the items ran out; above and beyond what I was expecting! Overall, I can’t recommend Lesley Ann highly enough, but now my worry is that she will be too busy to take on any future commissions from us!C. Smith – Woburn Sands,
Lesley is a very friendly and down to earth person who works really hard to ensure the services she provide are unique, fresh and of impeccable standard. She is quite creative and comes up with fantastic mood boards which incorporates her professional touch and the customer’s taste. She is a good listener, very professional but at the same time very approachable and kind. Will definitely recommend her.Edith Ekpa – Oakgrove,
We approached Lesley Ann Interiors with a view to staging and sprucing up our soon to be Vacant property in the UK. We were contemplating selling our property if a tenant couldn’t be found quickly. Living in Melbourne Australia, we had become used to viewing properties that had been professionally staged to a good standard and thus sold quickly and at a better price. We approached Lesley by email and Skype. She was able to put us at ease straight away and was able to undertake the work that we were after. However our property was let very quickly and so we decided to wait another year before trying to sell… and wait for Brexit to settle. Lesley didn’t charge for any of her time. We will definitely use Lesley when we are looking to sell our property in Milton Keynes as her friendly manner and professionalism was outstanding.Jacque Thunder – Australia,
Lesley Ann Interiors, you are amazing, you completely open my eyes to a different approach when designing my lounge, your mood boards are stunning and unique. I loved your ideas and basically copied all of them! Now I have a lounge that’s cosy, warm, bright and completely different to my original (and a little boring!) plan. Bathroom next! Thank you!Caroline Musgrove – Bletchley,
Lesley has a great eye for designing rooms that blend various colours and textures together to achieve an accomplished look and feel to a room.
I first used Lesley when i was looking for inspiration for my lounge; I had a couple of sofas and colour options in mind. I sent Lesley some photos and she skilfully put mood boards together to show me the various options against the existing wall colour and carpet. She also added some suggested standalone furniture, curtains and soft furnishings to compliment the room which allowed me to see the final look in each option. It really helped me decide on what i wanted (I went with one of her fabulous suggestions) and Lesley even helped me purchase some of the items.
Lesley is extremely helpful, full of ideas and has a great talent whereby she can pull everything together to create the look you desire.
Thank you Lesley for all your help – I’ll be back soon for help with my dining room.Andrew Harding – London,
