It was fun transforming a young active family home for selling!

Getting a home ready for selling is a very big job. Once a home seller realizes this and hires a home stager to do the work we do best,a huge amount of stress drops away. Sellers can then focus on what they need to do to get ready for the move.

This home is typical of a young, active family home. It was cluttered with everyday living items, toys, games, bowls, chairs, etc. The home owners did a terrific job in doing their pre-pack and cleared out everything except what they needed for daily living.

With a little bit of inventory and some of their own bedding used in different ways, we created a peaceful and inviting guest bedroom. The faux headboard was created by wrapping 2 pillows inside a throw! The children’s room still needed to be functional for them, but with just some moving of furniture around the space became much bigger and more serviceable.

PRES members Sharon Charboneau of Up Staging Your Homes, Irene Huva of Interio Deco and Cheryl Grattan of With Flair Home Staging & Redesign did a fantastic job helping stage this home. We had a lot of fun but then again to us, this is what staging is all about.

The home seller and her realtor were thrilled with the results. Open House this weekend and this house is ready to be sold!

Proud owner of PRES Staging® and expert home stager. I naturally started drawing interiors when I was very young. I see finished projects completed in my minds-eye as the client explains to me how they would love to see their space created. I then can draw sketches quickly to produce this vision right then and there with the client. My creative talents led me to full time work as a career counsellor working with people, designing workshops, facilitating groups when the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements. My many talents in this field was a happy marriage to own PRES the Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. Helping others start and run their own home décor businesses for redesign and staging, learning design principals and building confidence brings me great joy and passion. Working with people and helping them make confident decisions comes easy to me.
