Staging of Lived-in Homes: After the consultation and the outlined recommendations have been completed, In Style can finalize the staging process by "showcasing" your home's features. We work with your existing furniture, accessories and artwork. Each room's function, focal point, furniture placement and traffic flow is assessed to ensure optimal presentation to buyers.
Staging of Vacant Homes: Statistics show that vacant homes sell 80% faster when showcased with furnishings! When a property is empty it can be difficult for potential buyers to visualize the house as their future home. Through the rental of furniture and accessories, an empty space is transformed into a welcoming and inviting home that will attract more buyers. In Style will prepare a detailed quote for review.
*As each home varies, quotes are given after the consultation.*
*Note: Accessory rental is for Vacant Homes Only. Our accessory rental fee is based on a break down of what inventory is required to "stage" the home, not a flat rate.*
Our Redesign service caters to individuals who are not moving, but are looking for a fresh look in their homes and do not want to invest a large sum of money for the traditional design services.
During our Consultation, we get to know you and your personal style, through a variety of questions and a walk through of your home. Once we accomplish knowing your style preference, we redesign the space so that it fits your personality ~ using your existing furnishings. Typically we should be able to accomplish the redesign in a single day. On occasion, we leave behind a shopping list of items that might further enhance the results your looking for. We also offer a shopping service where we would shop for the items for you that would bring the room together to accomplish the total package.
Initial Consultation Service: ($150.00) We walk through your home with the agent and/or homeowner and discuss all of the changes that are necessary to improve the visual and decorative balance of your home. Within three business days you will receive a detailed analysis of your plan of action. The initial consultation includes the following:
