Home Staging Client Testimonials
"We are actively involved in the home rental business and are members of The Rental Housing Association of Puget Sound. We are so impressed with the results of Debbie's ability to show off the features of our property. This was just another empty house before Debbie professionally staged it and now it feels like a real home. Debbie is amazing, she knows what a room needs, and easily makes it look spectacular. Keeping our budget in mind, Debbie brought in key furniture pieces, creatively incorporating a couple of existing furnishings and added lots of wonderful accessories to compliment them. Everything was arranged perfectly so that the home shows elegantly. Her hours of hard work will pay off, we are confident that this home will rent promptly. Debbie is a pleasure to work with and we will recommend her business, Spaces Streamlined, to our association and anyone who wants to make the most of their home whether it is for their personal pleasure or for business purposes." Far West Construction, Gig Harbor, Wa
Debra, I had a great time reviewing my home with your expertise, thanks for the great suggestions. I spent this afternoon acquiring some odds and ends per your instructions. My husband and I will be working the next couple of weeks to have the home buyer ready. Thank you again for your time, it was wonderful to meet you.Your suggestions will truly make our home standout. Brittinni - Tacoma
"I love the new look of my old things! The feeling of walking into each room and not feeling overwhelmed with the clutter is priceless! Debbie helped me declutter, rearrange and reaccessorize my living room, kitchen, dining room, home office, media room, master bedroom and bath. She also helped me locate some affordable storage units to house a lot of the family shoes and coats in the mudroom as well as choose a new area rug for the living room. Deb is a delight to work with and she really listened to me and worked with the things that were important to me to keep on display. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is moving in or needs to move on with a life de-cluttered!" Claire - Gig Harbor
"I contacted Debra after seeing a reference for her on Facebook. After forwarding her a few digital images, she came to my home and spent a few hours helping me de-clutter and reorganize our family room. She was exceptionally diplomatic given the family of 6 chaos, and helped stage the room so it was immediately a more visually appealing and comfortable space. She provided me with some accent pieces and suggestions that provided me with the inspiration and guidance I needed to tackle other areas. I highly recommend Debra's services to busy moms and busy professionals who are looking for a catalyst to a new and improved room.” Beth - Federal Way, Wa "Debra, thank you for the before and after photos! I appreciate your professionalism and the way you do business. You certainly saved me much time and effort in my move. Thank you, too, for keeping my limited budget in mind when you shopped for me."
