Home Stager with ReStyled to Sell Home Staging New Jersey

While staging a vacant home that has recently been newly constructed, it is always nice to take an older home and breathe new life into it.

ReStyled to Sell Home Staging NJ just finished an older 3 story colonial in Westfield NJ. This house, in the right location, could be a beautiful bed and breakfast. It is the type of house that has a third floor than can easily be transformed into 2 more bedrooms.

Upon arrival at this home for my consultation there was a lot of clutter and items hiding the beauty of this home. There was wall to wall carpeting throughout the whole house, even in the entry foyer. A beautiful enclosed porch was piled high with shelving units and storage and the floor was covered in a red outdoor carpet.

The homeowner was gracious and excited and she agreed to just about all the changes we wanted to make. After a week of hard work, we gave a 70 year old woman a house that she admits is not her style but quite nice. We even gave her a little girls room, which was a favorite of mine.

Thanks Jean for allowing us to come in and transform your home into a house that will now be competitive on the real estate market.

New is nice, old, charming and a house with character is nicer!! Here is a before and after of the spare bedroom I staged into the little girls bedroom.

Happy Staging

Thanks for sharing this room - what a delightful transformation.  I list a lot of OLDER homes and this post really tickled me.

Phyllis: Lovely job. I grew up in Cranford and know Westfield well. I actually work on more older homes than new homes, and I love the character and history that they so often display. Thanks for the photos.

Thanks all....I really love what I do and sometimes we have to remember that whether the house is new or old, our job is to help the sellers SELL. Stagers can improve on any property. Hey Michelle then you know how lovely it is in Westfield.

Wow, Phillis, talk about a CHANGE, that is one amazing job you did!  It honestly doesn't look like the same room.  Thank you for sharing that.
