Why hire an interior designer?

  • Designers have extensive product knowledge including maintenance information, appropriate use, life cycle cost, and durability.  All of which are necessary to assist in making an educated decision on the materials selected for your particular project.
  • Designers offer innovative ideas and solutions that will provide a finished project often exceeding expectations.
  • A designer possesses a background and skill level that compliments those of an architect.  When the two professions collaborate together, they can bring a broader range of creativity, knowledge and aesthetic styles to their projects.
  • The time & money you save, the expertise you have available to you, as well as the end result of having a space function properly and look great at the same time are well worth the investment.

Home Staging

Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence to be sold in the real estate market-place.   Goals for home staging:
  • To sell a home quickly and for the most money possible
  • Raise the value of the home by: depersonalizing, de-cluttering, cleaning, and improving condition of items
  • Transforming a home into a welcoming, appealing, and attractive product for sale
First impressions are absolutely critical.   They will break or seal the deal for home buyers.

Home Staging: Frequently Asked Questions/Comments

  • Why can't I just stage my own home?

    Home sellers are usually incapable of successfully staging their own home.   Why?   Because our homes are like our children, we don't always see all of the flaws.   We've gotten used to the way it looks, and it is difficult emotionally to change that.   If you can't view something objectively, then you are unable to market and package it effectively.   Most home sellers don't "stage" homes everyday for a living.   That's what professionals are for and that is where the greatest returns are found!
  • Less than 50% of homebuyers can visualize the potential of a home.

    That's why staging a home is critical!   You don't want the benefits of your beautiful home left up to the buyer's imagination.
  • Can't homebuyers use their imagination and look past the décor?

    Less than 50% of homebuyers can actually visualize the potential of a home.   This is why having a home professionally staged is so important.   Buyers cannot visualize the size and scale of rooms.   That is where furniture helps to give them a frame of reference.
  • Does staging really make a difference in selling a home?

    Homes that have been professionally staged, statistically sell 50% faster and for 6-10% more.
  • To sell your home faster, you must sell more than just three bedrooms, two baths and so many square feet with a garage.   You must sell a style of life.

    A home is where buyers imagine themselves relaxing and entertaining with their family and friends; where they prepare and enjoy their warm and functional bathrooms; where they can relax on the patio or listen to their favorite music; where dreams come true.
