At Coastal Home Styling we care about our customers & the service we provide.

Feedback from our clients is always very important to us...... 

"Emma Staged a house for the owner which we had been instructed to sell. It was a good size family home in Charminster, and as with all family homes we suffer with clutter and general space saving ideas. When you put a property on the market you also want it to stand out against the competition and attract attention from as many buyers as possible.  Emma introduced some really simple ideas to optimize the space and some clever colour changes to attract attention. As soon as the house was live it had 22 viewings over 3 days and and open house event on the Saturday, eventually selling in excessive of the asking price to one very happy family.  It makes such a difference to show a property where everyone viewing could imagine themselves living there. 


We have been agents in Bournemouth now for a long time and seen many standards of properties, and I cannot stress enough how important it is to Stage a property for viewings. Unmade beds, cluttered playrooms, and poor kerb appeal can ultimately affect the sale value of your home, and really are easy problems to solve with some imagination and easy ideas. Its such a pleasure to show well dressed homes and achieve good prices for the owners. Ultimately this should make your move on more doable with a higher price achieved on your own home."

"Emma was brought in to stage the penthouse in a top end block with views over golf course and harbour. She did a great job and made it look incredible So much so the very first viewing agreed to buy and at full asking Thank you Emma for all the extra visits to ensure it was tip top when launched and ongoing care to ensure it was presented in best possible way Will be back to you again soon on next project."

Martin, Canford Cliffs

"Faced with the problem of finding space to work from home we decided to seek help from Emma at Coastal Home Styling, who was recommended to us through a friend.  

She provided us with helpful decluttering advice and recommended making a space in the kitchen for a table with seating, which she was able to find for us within our budget.

This has proved invaluable and we now use the table as a work station, prep surface or coffee stop. Not only has it solved the problem but it has also given the kitchen a new lease of life!

We were very happy with the service."

"Emma came round to our house to help us prepare our house for sale. She provided us with a very detailed report which we used as a checklist to Staging our home ready for valuation and viewings.

We  were very impressed by the level of detail her report went into and worked our way through it which completely transformed our house. As a result of the changes we made we received several offers way over the asking price and feel the improvements we undertook as a result of her visits and reports were hugely influential in this.

Emma was friendly, knowledgeable and professional and I would thoroughly recommend her Home Staging services."

"Struggling to sell my house, Emma at Coastal Home Styling came to the rescue and helped transform my rooms from dark and cluttered into airy spaces, full of light.

Following her suggestions and advice really helped my property to gain interest where it was lacking before. Now my property is sold and with a higher price than initially expected. 

I would highly recommend Coastal Home Styling. I have been more than impressed with the service." 

I Johnson, Bournemouth

"It was an absolute pleasure to meet Emma Norman @ Coastal Home Styling recently. Nervous about a second price drop on our sale, I invited Emma to help.


Emma's passion and enthusiasm for home styling really are fantastic and you get the full benefits of this, as a Client.

Emma gives you so much added value too. I loved the little nuggets of advice and hearing Emma talk so passionately about upcycling and repurposing furnishings. In all, I’ve learnt a lot from Emma by inviting her into my home and expect I'll take this newfound knowledge with me to my next property, and any other purchase in the future. In fact, I can’t see myself selling a property in the future without reaching out to Emma’s Homestyling business first.


Together, we transformed my home in just two weeks. I expect it won't be long before the offers start coming in! More importantly, I don't see another price drop on the horizon, so I am massively grateful to Emma for that."

"A local Agent in Southbourne recommended Emma to style and dress my house in Southbourne for holiday lets.

Emma has great ideas and is resourceful, saving money at the same time by purchasing items on sites such as Facebook Marketplace. Emma has great style, putting together excellent mood boards ready for client approval and I thoroughly recommend Emma to tie in a stylish and coherent look for your property and save you a lot of time and money in the process ."
