An award-winning Milton Keynes interior design and home staging business has expanded by launching a range of luxury items to improve the ambience of your home.
Local entrepreneur and Design Director Hugo Fleming launched Cranberryhome in 2013 to provide high-quality customer-focussed interior design and home staging to homeowners in the south east of England.
The philosophy of the business is to provide cost-effective design that incorporates modern ideas and concepts, but with a traditional heritage.
Cranberryhome has since become recognised as one of the leading design houses in the area and has received multiple ‘Best of Houzz’ awards – for customer service three years running plus Design awards in 2016 and 2017.
Hugo took the decision to expand the business in 2015 by unveiling a luxury home fragrance range.
The move proved a huge success, which has led to the launch of Cranberryhome Boutique this summer as a sister company to specialise in luxury items for the home.
“Expanding into the retail sector compliments our existing presence,” said Hugo. “We now offer luxury candles, reed diffusers, room sprays, and bespoke artisan cushions, all available from our online store http://www.cranberryhomeboutique.co.uk.”
But Hugo’s core business remains interior design and home staging – which has seen a huge surge in interest in recent times as TV shows based on staging homes for selling have hit the mainstream.
Home staging originated with Anne Maurice and the House Doctor TV programme where homes are staged to sell, which has been a huge ratings success for Channel 5.
Cranberryhome has been at the forefront of the home staging scene locally after Hugo achieved House Doctor Approved status, which has seen him share his expertise with clients across Milton Keynes and surrounding areas after an extensive three-year training course with the prestigious brand.
He has noticed that savvy homeowners now want to beat the competition, improve the selling price and sell quicker with a professionally staged home, which will be especially important in the coming months as we enter the housing market’s busy autumn period.
Hugo (pictured above) said: “September looks to be a key time to prepare your house for sale so be sure to book your home consultation with us before you call in the estate agents, and make sure you insist on professional photography from them too.
“We can add substantial value to your property and we’ve got the House Doctor Approved stamp, which is a trademarked seal of approval.
“The stats are staggering, one of our recent stages cost £3,000 and added £10,000 to the asking price in three weeks!
“We help people with things like decluttering, presenting the property and even giving things a lick of paint as and when required.”
Cranberryhome is also a popular choice for new homeowners who want to achieve the showhome look.
Hugo explained: “On the design side, a lot of people call us because they want the showhome look, which we can achieve but we make it a bit more homely than that.
“We’ve completed lots of houses in MK, Buckingham, Bicester, Bedford and beyond.”
