There are lots of meanings for the word “Staging”and the first thing most people think about is the dollar signs! They imagine moving companies taking out their furniture, interior designers charging by the hour, hiring painters, storage units to rent, and furniture and accessories being brought into their home. Cha-Ching! It must be said, this type of staging is out there and there are homes and owners where perhaps it is appropriate.
But, my staging is nothing like this! When I stage your home my goal is to keep costs down! The client pays for my time, which is usually 1-2 hours coaching room by room as the owner takes notes. I use their furniture, their belongings for accessorizing and their artwork. The staging includes the closets, shelves, yard, garage, basement, laundry room and even the furnace/storage areas! Plus, I am fun! (I really love doing this!)
