We start your redesign process by asking you questions about your interests and needs. We listen to what you have to say about what you like about the room as well as what is not working for you. Next, we will provide you with the pricing for the job and schedule a date for the redesign to take place. On redesign day we carefully remove most of the items from the room. We then assess the room and decide on the perfect placement for furniture, rugs, lamps, artwork and accessories. Then we get to work and redesign your room! With your permission we may “shop” around your home for other items to use in the redesign. Additionally, you may leave us with items that you would like to have incorporated in the room. You return and we reveal your new room. Because of our proven system we can accomplish quite a bit in both a half day and whole day session.
• We are about to put our home on the market. We know it can benefit from staging, but there are some projects we just never got to, and we’re nervous about bringing someone in. Should we try to fix things up ourselves first?
No, don’t stress yourself out…just call us. Everyone feels this way about some areas of their home (and we’ve pretty much seen it all!). We’ll work with you to develop a strategy for getting things in shape as quickly and painlessly as possible. Remember, we’re on your side.
Good question. There is some overlap between what interior decorators and redesigners do. From our perspective, the biggest difference is that a decorator generally will suggest new purchases—paint, window treatments, fixtures, furniture—while a redesigner will make the most of what you already own. We do sometimes make purchases or recommendations when warranted, but overall, interior redesign is much faster, more cost-effective, and much smaller in scope than a redecorating project.
If you want to sell your home faster and receive the most money for it, yes! A trained home stager knows how to prepare a home for those all-important listing photos, for starters. Multiple studies indicate that professionally staged homes sell faster and receive higher offers than those that do not. Home staging is a modest investment that will pay for itself many times over.
