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

Don't think you need to paint when selling? Well take a look at this.

Working with sellers you often hear them ask why they have to paint when the new people will just do what they want with the place when they move in.

I explain that it is important to create a clean, fresh neutral pallette so that anyone can move in without having to do a lot of work right away. Plus, by using neutral colours, the space expands visually allowing buyers to perceive more value in your home. And that's a good thing.

In this home staging in Vaughan you can see the dramatic changes that have taken place by simply changing the paint colour. Choosing the correct paint colour is something that your professional home stager is trained to do to gain interest in your property.

The sun room was originally painted with a faux finish is various shades of taupe.

To stage the house the sun room was painted in CC 110 Muslin Benjamin Moore.

The master ensuite bathroom was originally painted with a dark brown finish on the cabinet. The light fixture was also very dated.

The master ensuite bathroom was painted in Cloud White Benjamin Moore and the light fixture was replaced with one from Home Depot. Total investment for this room was $90.

The kitchen was also originally painted with the same faux finish as the sun room as well as being embellished with a grape vine stencil. The stencil was only done last year but it really had to go to create a neutral pallette that anyone could appreicate.

The kitchen was painted in CC 110 Muslin Benjamin Moore. This was done for $50.

Space and light are two luxuries that sell homes. By painting in neutral colours you can clearly see the positive effect it has had in this property.

Investment, minimal.

Impact, priceless.
