Kid Clutter To Super Simplistic

Kids had taken over the Game Room and had made it their craft room. After taking the table, clutter and other pieces out, it was turned into a very simplistic, minimalist room. I was able to use the benches as a much needed coffee table. Redesigned using the homeowners furniture.

This property was staged and sold under 30 days.

From Frat House To Defined Spaces

This was a family/formal dining room that was being used for a family room/pool hall. Moving out the pool table and furniture the couple had since college and bringing in rental furniture and accessories gave this room a more appealing look. An added value of a dining room, on a very tight budget.

Formal Living made into a Study. Small changes using the homeowners furniture and one rental chair, make a much more usable room. This room served no purpose before, now buyers could visualize a functional room.

Curb Appeal Where What's On The Outside Counts!

Mom always told us it's whats on the inside that counts. And as usual mom is right, but in this case the outside also counts! While the inside could look amazing - if the yard is not well maintained, the buyer may not want to look for the diamond in the rough.
With some elbow grease the yard is transformed into showcasing this adorable bungalow in the trendy "Heights" area of Houston.

How Much Does Home Staging Cost?

The most frequently asked question is "How much does home staging cost"? That is the biggest misconception of staging. It is extremely affordable! Of course the price depends largely on the size and scope of the project. However, the cost is often a few hundred dollars for a full staging package compared to $1000's. So, before you list your home, or take that first price reduction, of several thousand dollars, give us a try. You will be amazed at the results. Redesign Etc. offers a Home Staging Consultation which includes paint/color and curb appeal.We will meet with you to understand your space inside and out. With your permission, I will take digital photos and prepare a written Consultation Property Assessment Report. This Report details all aspects of interior and exterior needs that you can do in order to get top dollar for the property. It will focus on what to pack up in each space, and offer recommendations such as paint, repairs, and de-cluttering.
