Bringing Rooms From “Woe” to “Wow!”
The before and after pictures of home staging can often be misleading as the home stager often stages both before and after pictures themselves; this is especially true of newer home staging operations. It is imperative that before you award the contract to a specialist you have properly looked at their list of references and their portfolio. It is too easy today for almost anyone to take a home staging study course and after a few simply tests can claim to belong to a blanket organization or group.
As in anything the buyer should beware.
By changing the position of furniture, through de-cluttering and by highlighting the features of your home you can create a more livable space. When you achieve a balanced new look in your home you will feel calmer, happier and more at ease.
Concepts like Feng-Shui have become more popular as people spend more time in their homes and want to create the most comfortable environment. Redesign of the home doesn’t involve esoteric or complicated theories like those of Feng-Shui. We use simplicity and taste as our guides for your transformation. After your redesign or home dressing consultation you will learn ways to improve the flow, efficiency, clarity and overall style of your. The consultation will introduce you to new ideas and new ways of bringing your home into a more comfortable state.
People often collect objects and furnishings and bring them home and place them somewhere and that’s it… over time they add more to our rooms but tend to forget that the order and balance and colors of these new additions don’t always create harmony, instead they can create subtle disturbance in the energies of the home.
Having us redesign, re-organize or de-clutter your home will frees up your energy and allow you to move on with more important things in your life because it means you spend less time cleaning and organizing. Having newly defined and decorated areas will open up space in your home and in your mind and you will spend less time procrastinating as well as save money and storage space.
Put the wow factor into your home by staging it. Give your home the best appearance possible. With very little money, simply by applying elbow grease, and some focused planning and time, you can optimize your living space to make a far better first impression than it now makes, both outside and inside. Home staging is the process of upgrading your home visually, either to positively influence a potential buyer or to add maximum visual luster to your home just for yourself, your neighbors, and your guests. The curb appeal of the outside of your home and the “first-glance” appeal inside your home can be greatly upgraded with just a little know-how of WHERE to put your time, and WHAT to improve to make the biggest visual impressions.
There are places to put your time and money and places NOT to put your time and money in this project. The principles contained in this easy booklet will show you the difference, immediately. A home, so exquisitely showcased, says something about the owners inside the home, too. It puts your best foot forward. Get this short simple to-the-point tutorial and you will be hours and money ahead of the game. Includes color illustrations of examples, good and bad.
