Cole House Design recently staged a Brampton Ontario home. It sold in 6 days for 99% of the asking price. Hooray! Another example that staging works!!
Cole House Design was called by this Brampton homeowner as he wanted his home staged before listing. He and his wife were retirees living in a 30 year old house. He knew over the years they had accumulated some clutter, and needed help depersonalizing and updating the interior of the home.
After a home staging consultation by Cole House Design, these homeowners started packing things up. Old furniture stored in the basement was put out at the curb, and boxes of their grandchildrens' toys were sent back to them.
With a clean slate, Cole House Design called in the painters, and almost the whole home was updated with new colours. Here are some of the photos from the transformation:
New laminate countertops, brushed nickel hardware (hinges and knobs), updated lighting, fresh white paint on the cabinets, Benjamin Moore "Monroe Bisque" (HC26) on the walls vs. the old peach paint, and the kitchen cleared of clutter...this room is now ready for entertaining.
In this bubble gum pink family room we reused the burgundy leather sofas (but kept nothing else), wanting to give it a more updated look. We painted it Benjamin Moore "Danville Tan" (HC91) and then purchased new tables, lamps, artwork, drapery panels, and an area rug, all of which the homeowners can use in their new home.
In the laundry room, the wood cabinetry was painted white to freshen up the room. New hardware was also installed. The walls were painted a soft grey "Shale" (CC458) by Benjamin Moore, and new slate-like peel and stick tile was laid over the 1970's yellow patterned vinyl flooring.
In the master bedroom, we took down the green paisley print border that co-ordinated with the pink walls. The dusty rose carpet was also pulled up due to wear. New beige carpet and mirrored closet doors were installed, and the walls were painted Benjamin Moore "Moccasin" (CC430). All of the furniture was placed back into the room, and the bed linens and draperies were reused, as they had been recently purchased by the homeowner.
The homeowners are thrilled over the quick sale of their home, and have this to say:
"House sold in 6 days! Not even a week, not even an open house. Thank you for all your help. We're enjoying the decluttering so much! I want my next house to look this good, so I'll be in touch once we've moved. Thanks again."
