All I did was....Home Staging Success Stories

head_left_image

All I did was.... take a dated kitchen and make it look move in ready.

This home staging in Vaughan had me perplexed at first. I really wanted the kitchen cabinets that were installed in the eating are removed. They seemed to be floating in mid air, they really needed to come down. Or I thought, they really need something below them to balance them out on the wall.

In the end, our team did neither.

We staged the white cabinet with a brand new set of dishes that the client had tucked away in the basement. While I was down there, I spotted (no pun intended) the cow theme seats on two, older looking black chairs. As stagers, we all know we have to keep our eyes open to find the hidden gems in the houses that we stage.

This is what Adantage Staging did to create a modern, funky kitchen that would appeal to the younger families moving in to this neighbourhood.

Kitchen Before Staging

Kitchen After Staging

It worked. This home sold in two weeks just before Christmas. A tough time to sell according to some people. Simple, effective staging ideas created by using things from the home owner. A dish set, three red apples on a white ceramic tray, and two cow theme chairs that now show seating for six people instead of four.

Investment, minimal.

Impact, priceless.

Remember, staging is always less than the first price reduction.

When you are ready to sell, Advantage Staging is ready to be part of your marketing strategy.
