January 2017 Featured Before & After

This before and after is from the entry way you can see in the last post.  Storage was a problem, so we added shoe racks on the left for more functionality.  White trim, neutral walls and a pop of color in the door and accessories make this entry way so much more attractive!  And if you remember the staging tip from last month, these are the ceramic floors that got a new grout color.

January 2017 Staging Tip of the Month

Sometimes we think of things as one way only.  For example, wrought iron handrails are black, right?  Wrong!  Paint them a contemporary color to give them a whole new look!

October 2016 Staging Tip of the Month

This house had been completely remodeled with grey walls and white trim throughout.  The only room not done in this style was the front porch….the first impression room for the whole house.  Making it consistent with the rest of the house was imperative!  This house sold in just a few days on the market!

April 2016 Featured Before & After

This is from the same house in the last post.  Before the red accent paint and draperies were a little jarring for buyers.  The custom wallpaper mural was too personal.  And the traditional rug with the traditional furniture was a little overwhelming for a more contemporary buyer.

The mural was removed, the red got painted neutral, the red draperies removed and the traditional rug replaced with a more contemporary one. With this room right inside the front door, this is a much better first impression!
And a few more after pictures of the rest of the house:

March 2016 Featured Before and After

This is from the same condo as the kitchen in the last post.  White walls, dark oak trim and tired carpeting did not make this condo stand out above any of the others in the building.  We closed off the opening to the kitchen, added booth seating since this condo lacked storage, painted everything, added new flooring, lighting and beautiful furniture.

March 2016 Staging Tip of the Month

An older galley style kitchen with minimal storage can often be difficult to envision any other way.
This one got a beautiful makeover!  We didn’t replace cabinets….but instead added a pantry where an opening was and put new cabinet fronts so they would all coordinate.  New flooring, appliances, countertops and backsplash make this kitchen a wow statement!
