Home Staging is about more than just fluffing pillows. It is a complex system designed to help you sell your home faster, for more money, and outshine the competition. It is a small investment that can mean a big return.

Some key elements addressed during the CONSULTATION and STAGING process are:

PHOTO APPEAL – setting the stage to showcase your home’s appeal, online and in printed material, in order to bring in more traffic from potential buyers

CURB APPEAL – drawing potential buyers into the home and creating a great first impression

DEPERSONALIZING – neutralizing décor to appeal to the largest body of potential buyers

DECLUTTERING – making a room feel more open, helping to keep the focus on the home, not the clutter

LIGHTING – brightening a room to make it appear more spacious and inviting

FURNITURE SELECTION AND PLACEMENT – creating a spacious, balanced arrangement with proper traffic flow, using existing furnishings (whenever possible) or with the addition of rental pieces

FOCAL POINTS – drawing attention to architectural elements of a room

ACCESSORIZING – rearranging and editing accessories, using existing accessories or with the addition of rental pieces

PROBLEM SOLVING – addressing issues before the potential buyer has a chance to, including repairs, odours, awkward layouts, bad lighting, etc.

This includes a walk-through of your home where I will take pictures and detailed notes. I explain to you our recommendations, room-by-room, inside and out. You will be provided with a detailed comprehensive report to get your home market, which you can then choose to implement yourself, or have Afterglow Interiors complete the staging.


Once the preliminary work is completed, I will transform your space into a home potential buyers will fall in love with. This is achieved by using existing furniture and accessories, whenever possible, or with the addition of rental pieces.

This is a cost-effective solution for those who wish to save money by completing the staging themselves, but who need help making some final adjustments. This is a great package to purchase before an Open House.
