Helping first-time buyers furnish their home with finesse, Catalyst are hosting an interior design event on 8th February, at new development ARRO in Southall, with all buyers who reserve on the day receiving up to £3,500 towards kitting out their interiors.
Partnering with Edward Thomas Interiors, first-time buyers can discuss their home with the professional stylists, whilst getting clued up on 2020’s biggest interior trends, fabrics, and styling tips.
Markus Kendall-Young, Head of Sales and Marketing at Catalyst, comments: “Furnishing your first home can cost thousands, becoming a significant barrier to those looking to get on to the property ladder. As well as helping buyers with the financial side of fitting out their home, our interior design event is designed to inspire new homeowners, so that they can visualise living in one of our brand new, high quality developments.”
Sunita Sahota from Edward Thomas Interiors, comments: “Walking into an empty flat, void of furniture and atmosphere, can be pretty daunting as a first-time buyer. Teaming up with Catalyst for a series of interior design events, we will be showing buyers how to layout furniture in their home to give it that wow factor, as well as providing tips on curtains, fabrics and lighting, all designed to help each property feel homely from day one.”
“Those who reserve on the day will be able to put the money towards our bespoke service, where our designers work directly with you on an element of your home. One of the most popular options is to have curtains fitted – a design necessity which can be expensive, taking many first-time buyers by surprise. Our service starts with selecting one of our high quality fabrics, before our fitter comes to measure and install your curtains, meaning first-time buyers can enjoy a slice of luxury in their first home.”
