3 Things To Keep in Mind When You Make a London Property Investment

Given that London is one of the greatest cities in the world, a London property investment is going to get you a piece of prime real estate. Even when prices are dropping in other places, London property prices are affected a lot less. And when prices are going up, the value of your London property is likely to skyrocket. Still, there are certain things you should keep in mind before making a London property investment.

Are You Going to Live There or Rent It Out? Generally, when people invest in property, they don’t actually plan to live there. They plan to rent it out and get a monthly income. On the other hand, you might want to get a London property just so that you have somewhere to live during the time you spend in London. So depending on whether you plan to live there or rent it out, your priorities are going to be different. If you want to rent it out, it might be better to get a place where there are many students or young professionals because these are the people who are more likely to rent than buy. On the other hand, if you’re going to live there, you might prefer to be in a quieter place with an older demographic.

Have You Considered Maintenance and Taxes? Besides the cost of actually buying the place, remember that you’re also going to have to pay maintenance and taxes. Before you buy, find out how much these expenses are going to come to with the help of your real estate agent and calculate whether they fit into your budget. If you’re going to rent the place, you probably won’t have a problem but it’s better to know up front what the costs are going to be rather than being confronted with them later.

Are Your Ready for a Long Term Investment? A property investment is not generally a short-term thing. Sure, you can buy a property one year and sell it off the next year but the process of buying and selling is quite complex and time-consuming. Plus, there’s always a chance that you may not find a buyer, in which case the selling process will take a lot longer than you expected. If you’re looking for a short-term investment, you might want to turn to other options. Property is a solid investment for the long term.

So if you’re thinking about buying property in London as an investment, you might want to keep the above tips in mind. Contact us for more information and property listings.

3 Tips For Finding Interior Design Inspiration

You’re looking into purchasing your luxury property in London, preparing to have the home of your dreams—but you still haven’t decided on the interior design of it all. It’s hard to come up with ideas and you want everything to be perfect, so you keep putting it off. Let’s look at some tips and interior design themes to give you some inspiration and ideas to draw from.

1. Look To Nature

Nature provides done-for-you designs that we take for granted in everyday life. Artists and designers understand this principle and use it all the time. Claude Monet was inspired by the beauty of his pond lilies and painted over 200 paintings of them for his series. Vincent Van Gogh has many paintings depicting the yellow wheat fields he was so fond of in life. Fashion designers often take from animal print to design dresses and other fabric designs. Think of something in nature that you find beautiful and customize your interior based on that concept.

2. Personalize Your Design To Reflect Your Passions

Do you have hobbies? A great way to really personalize your interior is to design it around things that you love doing or learning more about. For example, if you’re fascinated by the sea, you might consider a nautical living room design. You could have a blue and yellow color scheme to represent the ocean and the sand. Figurines of sea creatures sit atop the furniture. A ship’s wheel hangs upon the wall. You could decorate with authentic starfish, coral, and seashells of all kinds to craft a classy theme for your living space.

3. Draw From Other Cultures

Cultural themes are great for giving your home a beautiful, cohesive look. Pick a culture you’re fond of and take elements of that culture’s architecture and art to make it your own. You could have your home modeled after Asian culture. Asian vases and dishware could be used for decoration, along with themed prints like Hokusai’s, The Wave. Sliding doors with kimono or cherry blossom print wallpaper are another nice design option under this theme. Fans and samurai gear could make for a nice juxtaposition, providing a nice balance of feminine and masculine characteristics.

London Property: Three Myths About Buying a Home in London Busted

The real estate market is constantly changing and evolving. As most people are aware, the real estate market in London and other major cities has been volatile as of late, but there are still plenty of buyers hunting for property. When looking into the prospect of buying a London property many buyers and sellers will come upon a few myths. We’ve collected the three most common property myths that buyer buy into and busted them to make your home buying process a bit easier.

Myth 1: An influx of retiring individuals will cause more homes to become available.

This might be true in some locales, but not in London. Baby boomers, as they are sometimes called, have reached 60 years of age, and they aren’t selling their homes anytime soon. In fact, many people in this age group are staving off retirement and staying in their homes, and if they are selling, they are moving to homes of a comparable size. The retiring population will not be causing an influx in available homes anytime soon.

Myth 2: A small space always looks cluttered

This is a real estate myth as well as an interior design myth. A space is only as cluttered as people make it. Because square footage is at a premium some buyers are looking at smaller flats and homes, but that doesn’t mean their space has to be cluttered. Buying a smaller home can actually be a great lifestyle choice. Not only does it help to keep the cleaning to a minimum, but it makes you cull out useless junk which will lead to a more simplistic and comfortable lifestyle overall.

Myth 3: Location is everything.

This is only half true. Yes, location is important, but it isn’t the most important part of the home buying experience. London neighborhoods are constantly evolving and changing, so a location that may not seem ideal now, may turn out to be a great area in a few years. The same goes in reverse, a perfect location can turn into a less than ideal location rather quickly, too. Location should be important, but it should not be the be all and end all of your real estate search.

Increasing the Value of Your Home with Professional Interior Design Services

Transforming a bare house into a space that feels like home can be a real challenge, especially when you’re dealing with a lot of square footage. Instead of tackling decorating each room on your own, it may be best to opt for professional interior design services. Not only is this a great way to help transform each room into a space that you truly love spending time in, but it can also help increase the value of your home drastically.

From the kitchen to the bedrooms in your home, choosing the right colors for the walls, linens, furniture, and decorations can be difficult. With so many options available to you and the trends constantly changing, it can be difficult to know how to design your home. By getting assistance from a luxury interior designer, you should be able to get the help that you’re interested in so that your home can begin to feel well-decorated and inviting.

Interior Design Services

In order for the space to truly match what you had in mind, it’s important that you share the decorating styles and color schemes that you like best with an interior designer. While relying on trends can help make your home mimic photographs from an interior design magazine, the space will likely feel impersonal. By sharing the styles that you like best, you can be confident that both you and the interior designer are on the same page so that they can deliver the results that you desire.

While the time it will take for your home to be designed and the cost can vary based on the size of your home and the specific features you want, the results speak for themselves in terms of the difference that professional interior design can deliver. Feel free to contact us if you’re interested in receiving interior design services for your home.

Minimalist Apartment in Singapore with Extensive City Views by QNQ Associates



In the master suite, the original open layout has been reconfigured to include a partition to better segregate the space, avoiding the usual walk-in-and-see-everything setting in new condominium units. Concealed space is an important consideration for every home, and this design here takes care of this requirement, adding additional cabinetry for everything from clothing to entertainment set-ups. Linen-like wall covering in a deep color add a touch of warmth to the resting space. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by KNQ Associates]
