Staging Makes All the Difference

Staging and preparation makes all the difference when showing your home. Take a look at the dramatic changes we made to this property with a coat of paint, some furniture swaps and space re-definition. The result? A brighter, more inviting space that was appealing to many buyers!

More importantly, it was appealing to the right buyer! With these minor cosmetic changes, this home sold after the 1st showing, in only 48 hours! 

LIVING ROOM: BEFORE – Dark colors made the room feel small and dated.


LIVING ROOM: AFTER – Bright paint and clean finishes make it feel bigger and more spacious.

BEDROOM: AFTER – Simple changes in furniture positioning can make a room appear much larger and feel more functional, as well. Eliminating the wall graphic helped to make the space feel more appealing to all buyers and the focal point is now on the cozy bed.


BATHROOM: BEFORE – Dark accessories can make a small space like a bathroom appear even smaller.

BATHROOM: AFTER – Switching out dark accessories to white or lighter ones will make a world of difference in showcasing your beautiful bathroom.


OUTDOOR SPACE: BEFORE – Your outdoor space is an important part of your entire home. This space didn’t have any definition on how it could be used.
