Pasadena Home Staging - Hard To Believe Its The Same Bathroom!

We recently were asked by the listing agent, Irina Netchaev, to perform a home staging consultation on a Sierra Madre view home that was going on the market. The home has great "bones" and an awesome view, but some of the decor and interior finishes had become dated. One of our recommendations was to make a few cost effective changes to the master bath to make it more luxurious and worthy of a master suite. This worked into the homeowners' plans as they had recently discovered a leak that would require them to tear our a shower wall to repair it.

The homeowner used a left-over piece of granite from the kitchen remodel for the bathroom counter. New floor tile was also installed. In addition, a closet was removed (you can see the closet door knob in the before picture above) which made the bathroom feel much larger.

Isn't that an amazing bathroom transformation?

I think the homeowners did a fantastic job with this bathroom transformation. I provided the guidance and design suggestions. The clients hired their own contractor and purchased the supplies. Once the work was finished, we came in and added finishing touches for the staging.

Because Moving Mountains Design is also a full service Interior Design company, we have he knowledge and resources to assist our clients on projects such as bathroom and kitchen remodels. Before you hire a home stager, make sure they are qualified and have the resources to help you prepare your home for market.

Thanks, Marcia.

Thanks, Linda!

Cathy Lee: The listing agent, Irina, was very happy with the turnout. She felt there were a couple of people who would probably return for a second look.

The shower looks incredible Michelle! I bet the owner had wished they'd done it for themselves sooner. It went from a dated space to a luxury resort feel and without making any major structural changes.  Well worth the investment!

Thanks, Karen. We also updated the kitchen, and the homeowner was saying (over and over) that they wished they'd done it all sooner.

Stunning is right.  Wow.  I can see why they "wished they had done it sooner."  

Congratulations. Your home staging is being featured in the group Staging Before and After Pictures.

Maria: Yes, the leak was turned into a positive. They would have had to fix it anyway, and they took the opportunity to improve the existing shower. Thanks!

Kathy: Thanks for the feature! I'm glad you like it.

Kathy: Considering we didn't change the cabinets, the mirrors or the towel bars, etc. it was very cost effective. The countertop was a left over piece of granite from the kitchen (which I have yet to post).

I love the finishes you put into the home it definately gave the spaces some sophistication and modern feel. But I thought you should have kept the cat calender...lol.

Janine: Thank you!

Tori: We went back and forth about that cat calendar. The home owner wanted to take it to their new home, and I wanted to keep it in this house <smile>.
