There's still a lot of confusion about the difference between home staging and decorating. When I introduce myself to people as a home stager, I still get people who respond with "Oh, so you decorate homes". While that is one aspect of my business, it's not what home staging is about. Home staging is not decorating.
Home stagers will assess the furniture. Is it too big, making the room appear smaller than it is? Could a different layout work better? How do the rooms flow together? Will the color of the fabric be a distraction to buyers?
We'll assess the paint color and its condition. Bold colors could turn off a potential buyer. Worn and discolored paint just screams "this house needs fixing!"
Home staging goes far beyond just decorating. It's about taking into consideration all aspects of the home. Cleaning, painting, layouts, repair and some DIY fixes. But home staging is not decorating. It's preparing your home for sale and doing what's best to make that great first impression.
