SF East Bay Staging & Design ~ Small Business Space Re-Thought & NEW!

Recently we were contacted by a Small Business in Lafayette...Ballou Plum Wealth Advisors....they needed assistance in Re-Thinking how their space looked and felt to their high net-worth clients

As with our homes...small business owners put off updates due to:

  • Not knowing 'where to start'
  • No time to devote to 'figuring it out'
  • Paralyzed over making decisions...'what if it's wrong?'
  • Other priorities...Managing a Small Business is a FULL time endeavor!

Sensational Home Staging & Design put together a plan to Update:

  • Furniture
  • Paint Color
  • Carpet & Baseboards
  • Window Coverings
  • Art & Accessories

Results are in.....

Conference Room ~ Before & AFTER

Reception Area ~ Before & AFTER

And BEST of all a very please Client:

Nice work, Kathy!!  Hey...I was over in your neck of the woods yesterday evening.  It's amazing how the weather can shift from 68 degrees at the Caldecott tunnel entry (heading east), and emerge on the other side at 98!  I should have brought a change of clothing.

Kathy ~ What a huge improvement "staging" made for this small business.  Now they can be proud to have their clients visit them!  Thanks for reminding everyone that home stagers can help offices look and flow better, too!

Hi Kathy,

The office looks so inviting... the reduction of a few furniture pieces and Artwork placed in just the right places gives the office new life and style and now ready for company!  Very nicely done, Kathy!

I love the chairs in the reception area.  Where did you find them?  They are a treasure.

Kathy - What a fun project.  It's nice to mix things up a bit with some re-design.  The after photos show an office that's so much more up to date and current.  Great job!

Nice job Kathy! The office looks like a plesant place to work. I've never thought about marketing to small business. It's a great idea.

Hi Kathy, I bet the productivity rate has climbed in the new space as well. Love the foyer chairs. Mid century modern furniture is going to be the next big thing in decor so your design of their space will let their visitors feel like they have walked into a business on top of their game. First impressions are everything as we all well know.
