Master Bedroom Before / After

May 05
2010

New bed linens, window panels, and a warm paint color to replace the 80′s wallpaper went a long way to update this master bedroom. We moved the tall dresser to the far wall and added a small bedside table to give the room balance. The laundry basket full of clothes found it’s rightful home in the closet. Framed wall art above the bed gives the room a finishing touch.

Kitchen Staged To Sell

Granite countertops, stainless appliances, tile backsplash and an abundance of cabinets are all key selling features of this kitchen, but they were hard to notice due to too much distracting décor. Reducing the countertop clutter and replacing all but a few of the décor items on top of the cabinets with silk greenery helps the kitchen’s best attributes to stand out. Two barstools were also removed to open up the space around the island and allow foot traffic to flow through.

Children’s Bedrooms

The wood paneled walls in this boy’s bedroom gave the room a dark and dated feel, so we removed all the personal wall art and painted the walls a pale shade of blue. A coordinating art print was brought in from another room in the house and placed over the bed. The rug and a small section of the desk were removed and the remaining furniture rearranged to make the room feel more spacious. Greenery on top of the dresser adds a finishing touch.

The shocking green made too much of a statement in this girl’s room, so the color was toned down to a soft green. Removing the rug and extra pieces in the corner and makes it feel less cluttered more inviting. A few cheerful floral arrangements were added to complete the transformation.

A cozy reading area has been created giving this room renewed purpose more appropriate for a room with built-in bookcases. The faded blue carpet was replaced with a patterned carpet adding interest to the small space. The walls and wood trim were painted light sage and ivory for an up-to-date look. A new chandelier helps draw attention to the high ceilings. Vintage family photos are packed away, and a large framed print gives the room a focal point.

What is Home Staging?

Apr 09
2009

Home staging gives homes for sale a competitive edge in the marketplace by increasing appeal to potential buyers. It’s more than just cleaning and de-cluttering the house you are selling… it’s about creating great first impressions. The artful arrangement of furniture and accessories will highlight a home’s best features and minimize any flaws.

Vacant homes can be especially hard to sell. They appear cold and uninviting, and most buyers have a hard time imagining themselves living there. Amazing Spaces can provide furnishings and décor, whether for a full room or small “vignettes” designed to give an impression of how a space might be used.

Another affordable option available through Amazing Spaces is getting a home staging consultation. We’ll walk through your home and provide you with a prioritized “to do” list that you can handle on your own.

Based upon statistical data, investing even a few hundred dollars in staging can net the seller thousands in return and will likely speed the sale of the house.

usatoday“Staged homes, on average, sold in half the time that the non-staged homes did.”


U.S. Housing and Urban Development reports that a staged home will sell, on average, 17% higher than an un-staged home.

In a HomeGain Survey of over 2000 realtors, sellers who spent $500 on staging services recovered 343% of the cost in the sale of their home.
