Home Staging in Snellville, GA

Home Staging - Why and What is it? 


Did you know that when selling a house, you are entering into a competition? We all can agree that the goal of any competition is to win! Aside from making sure your house is priced well, your house also has to show well. Think of how and why builders use "model homes". Your house should appeal to buyers in the same way.

This is done with Home Staging. Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money. Staging techniques focus on improving a property’s appeal by transforming it into a welcoming, attractive product that anyone might want.


Heart of Decor Home Staging Services


Heart of Decor was contacted by a homeowner in Snellville, Georgia for a Home Staging Consultation because she wanted to know what changes she could make to make her home more appealing to potential buyers. The requirements: Use their existing furniture and make recommendations according to the limited budget.

Here is a summary of what took place...

1) During her 90 minute hands-on consultation, we noted all our recommendations and made the changes we could make during that time. 

2) We compiled our notes and sent her a room-by-room checklist of the remaining changes we recommended. 

3) Lastly, we went back to the house to accessorize, add final touches, and take photos for her Realtor to use to advertise her home.


Here are the before and after pictures...

Bathroom Make-Over

Have you ever put something off for so long, you just got accustomed to it being the way it is? This was the case with this job.

 We were contacted by a client who had a small task for us to do. He had family coming in town and needed to give his bland half-bath some warmth. He was fine with using it as is, but knew it would be an eye-sore for his guests. No worries... Heart of Decor to the rescue!

Here are the BEFOREs and AFTERs

DIY Backsplash

Okay, so if you're wondering... No, Heart of Decor does not usually do contracting work such as painting, flooring, etc. But in this case, we just wanted to try our hand at tiling a back splash. What better place to practice on than one of our own homes!

Before doing any DIY project we highly recommend doing your research. For this, we attended a FREE Saturday morning class at our local Home Depot. After the class, we purchased the supplies and went straight to work while everything was still fresh in our minds. Check out the before and after pictures!

While it turned out well, we'll leave this sort of thing to the true professionals! Thankfully, the design we chose did not require a tile cutter. That would have opened a whole can of worms!

Family Room Makeover (Part 2 - Room Reveal)


In Part 1, we shared a family room that was in need of a redesign (make-over). They had fallen out of love with their space and it just wasn't functioning for this growing family anymore.

Here are the before pictures...




Here is the Design Plan and Budget...

Large artwork - $70
Pillows - $50
Throw - $20
Lamp - $30
Curtains - $75
Curtain Rod - $30
Rug - $70
Paint - $35

All totaling less than $400!!!
 
*The TV mounting and console were optional and not included in budget. The costs for these elements were approximately $325.
 
Here's a tip:  Always look for ways to recoup money. Several items were sold on Craigslist which put money back in the homeowner's pocket. Cha-ching!!!


Here is the room after...


So what do you think? Leave us a comment below. We'd love to hear from you!
