Nicki was always prompt, attentive and full of energy and terrific ideas. Her choices of wall paint colors was also an added and unexpected bonus! It is highly apparent that she is a veteran in the staging industry, and NOT a 'newbie' who chooses the cheap route of pulling strange furnishings out of their friend's homes to use. Nicki was not offended when I requested a stager over a certain age, as I'm decorating in a 50's theme for a real estate listing of mine, and she immediately knew how to proceed. Anyone can come view her work at the upcoming staged home at 1444 Tilia Street in San Mateo, CA, August 10 - September 10, 2016. Jeanette Cook Cook Properties Burlingame Office 650-270-3792

Austin Design was able to help me with several projects that I had during the last few years. Catherine has been easy to work, with guiding me,and my clients. She without fail brings us to a beautiful finish product that could not have been done without her knowledge, and bold ideas that put our properties over the top for sale or for leasing. Never would I do a project requiring her skills and guidance, without her. Just give her the challenge and without a doubt the end project will be exactly what you wanted and more. Skill, style, and integrity is what I find in Catherine over and over, and I am thrilled to have her working on any of my projects.

I have found Danielle to have an outstanding sense of style and a creative use of space that really make the rooms work. She has an elegance with everything she touches and is sensitive to the clients needs. I will always hope she is available when my clients and I need her!

Sarah did much of the interior design in my home--from paint colors to tile patterns, from furniture to throw rugs--and my wife and I are extremely happy with her work. The greatest testimonial came from a real estate agent who was appraising our house for sale and said, "You do not need to stage this house for a sale. Keep everything in place." Sarah has what I would call a classically-inspired modern taste. In modern fashion, she is not afraid of using color or bold patterns but she does it in a restrained way that complements everything else in the home. Classically, he is very keen on accents--pillows, throws, centerpieces--but the rooms never appear cluttered or overdone. Her taste in furniture and lighting is also inspired by the melding of the classic and modern. Sarah was great to work with. Dogged, but not overbearing. Inspired but open-minded. And importantly, while she has wonderful taste, she appreciates value.

As a real estate agent, I didn't think one would be able to do interior design online. But the process was super easy, engaging and fun. The designer did an absolutely amazing job of putting together a design we could easily execute on our side. I was really happy with the way the room turned out and I'd recommend InteriorCrowd to those who think hiring an interior designer is out of their budget

If there was a higher rating than Outstanding, Heike would get it! I first met Heike when I began my real estate career 12 years ago, and have used her exclusively as my stager. Heike has the skill to stage a home specific to each home and how it is best presented. And now I am thrilled to report that I use Heike exclusively as my personal designer for our home. Heike not only does interior design for us, but she took over the design process for our very large kitchen remodel; I told her what I wanted in a kitchen, and she made it happen; Heike designed the layout and helped me select all the material. My brother, John Rashleger, Rashleger Construction, executed the design, and was so impressed with Heike that he refers her to his clients! Heike is now in the final stages of our bathroom remodel, another perfect room in our home!

Staged and Sold Homes successfully staged 2 homes in an estate. I was from out of town, and Daniela Roberts took care of everything. The furniture, decorations, and accessories accentuated the home's layout. It was just the right amount of staging for each unit. Staged & Sold Homes was reasonable as compared to many other staging companies. Both homes sold quickly in a matter of weeks and the estate made a considerable profit due to staging. I highly recommend her services Staged and Sold Homes. www.StagedAndSoldHomes.com

Janet and her dedicated staff at Cozy Chic are superb home stagers. As owner/broker of Kaplan Real Estate in Davis, I rely on their interior design expertise to showcase my listings in the most favorable light, with just the right mix of colors and textures. I always appreciate their flexibility, at times using elements from the sellers' furnishings in combination with staging items that Cozy Chic provides, all for a very reasonable cost. Cozy Chic helped me sell 6 listings in 2011, in a very tough market. I look forward to a successful 2012 with their help. Within 2 weeks, I'll have 2 beautiful Davis homes ready for the market, thanks in large part to Cozy Chic's staging help.

Kira did a fantastic job staging a condo for me in downtown San Francisco. As a Realtor I know the importance of staging when it comes to marketing and selling a home. Kira’s design ideas were spot on and her beautiful furnishings complemented the best features of the property. Kira worked efficiently and knew how to get the job done. The condo sold considerable over asking after only 10 days! Kira is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.

WOW!!! Was I ever so impressed!!! She nailed it perfectly. She listened to what I wanted or envisioned and then executed it perfectly and beyond my expectations. This girl is truly talented!! She is delightful in everyway to work with and reasonable. You will not be sorry. I give her my highest recommendation. If I could have afforded more I would have done the whole house and gone more wild in the back yard. Due to my budget restraints she was limited in that way only. I am beyond pleased with the final outcome. In just 2 days she transformed this vacant home into an environment of 'AAH-MAZING' and inviting modern feel, with comfort & style!! I will indefinitely be using Kim's services with future listings. Thank you immensley Kim. Kathy Baker, Bradley Real Estate, Santa Rosa, CA

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does it mean to stage a home?

Home staging is the real estate strategy of decorating your home to be as marketable as possible to your target demographic. Home staging is done by interior decorators and other design pros hired by the homeowner or realtor, prior to putting a house on the market. Think of it as setting the stage for potential buyers to fall more easily in love with their future homes — and to spend top dollar to get them. It’s likely to be worth the investment: The Real Estate Staging Association reports that staged homes spend 90 percent less time on the market than those that are not staged. Home stagers can also be hired even if you’re not going anywhere. Stagers can consult on new layouts for your current home, much like an interior decorator.

Home staging can take place while you still occupy the house you plan to sell, or when the home is vacant. For an occupied home, the home stager will clear out clutter, rearrange furniture, and bring in decor and furniture as needed to create the perfect environment. Usually an occupied home has far too much of the current owner’s personality stamped on it, which makes it hard for prospective buyers to envision themselves living there. A home stager should neutralize and beautify the space. In vacant homes, a home stager will bring in furniture and decor so that potential buyers don’t walk into an empty house, which can be equally hard to imagine living in as a cluttered, occupied home.

 

What do interior designers do?

Interior designers do much more than pick complementary paint colors and choose matching furniture — although those tasks are important parts of the job. Unlike decorators, interior designers usually have an associate of science degree or certificate of achievement in interior design from an accredited program. They’re trained in drafting, lighting and computer aided design (CAD), and are experts in room-specific design and residential space planning. Interior designers use these skills to plan and design safe, highly functional and beautiful interior spaces, from kitchens and bathrooms to family rooms and bedrooms. They determine space requirements, work within building codes and inspection regulations, and meet accessibility standards. An interior designer’s day-to-day job includes creative and technical tasks, both of which often require great communication skills:

  • Creating model rooms and visuals using design software.
  • Researching different textiles, materials, finishes, lighting and furniture.
  • Hiring suppliers, vendors, and contractors.
  • Estimating costs and making bids on potential jobs.

How do you find a good interior designer?

For many homeowners, the difference between a good interior designer and a bad one is simply a matter of taste — but all good designers have similar skill sets. Interior designers usually have a degree or certificate in interior design, with training in design principles and lighting, drafting, and computer aided design (CAD) software. Good interior designers have strong color balancing skills and understand how different colors influence spatial perception and moods. They know the building and electrical codes in the areas where they practice, and they make sure that any contractors they hire also work to those codes. They are knowledgeable about different upholstery fabrics and draperies, stay ahead of residential design trends, and maintain their own individual creativity. Also, good interior designers have excellent space designing skills, so they can arrange a space efficiently and with ideal traffic flow. Ultimately, hiring a good interior designer means pinpointing one whose signature style is complementary to your personal style — so checking out many designers’ portfolios is a must — and whose communication methods match yours.

How much does it cost to stage a home for sale?

Nationally, the price for home staging ranges between $750 and $1,500. The price varies based on how many rooms in the house need staging, whether furniture and decor are needed or the stager can work with the client’s belongings, whether the home is occupied or vacant, and the sale price of the home. Occupied homes typically cost less to stage as they are already furnished, and can require less time and resources than staging an empty house. The main tasks when staging an occupied home are rearranging and decluttering. Staging an empty house can be more expensive as furniture and decor need to be trucked in, requiring transportation, physical labor and potential rental fees. Here are some examples of average home staging costs:

  • 2-hour consultation: $200, includes DIY tips and guidance.
  • 1- to 2-hour consultation and design session: $250, including written report.
    • Additional design consulting: $65 per hour.
  • 8 hours of staging an occupied home: $800.
    • Hands-on staging involving moving furniture, hanging and moving art, and decluttering.
  • Starting price for staging a vacant home could be $2,200.
  • A home stager may charge 1 percent of the home’s selling price.

How do you choose an interior designer?

Choosing an interior designer is all about finding one whose signature style fits well with your tastes and who can work within your budget. To choose the right professional for your interior design project, ask yourself these five questions:

  • What is your signature style? Good interior designers can both describe their personal aesthetic and demonstrate their signature style through their portfolios. Make sure it appeals to you.
  • How will you make sure the design fits my lifestyle? Good designers understand that the interior design must improve a homeowner’s experience in their home and fit into their lifestyle; for example, a white suede sofa is a poor choice for a family with large dogs and small children.
  • How much do you charge? Depending on the project, an interior designer may charge an hourly rate, a flat fee or a percentage of the project’s total cost.
  • How will you stick to my budget? An interior designer should have a plan for staying within your budget, which includes full transparency of costs and flexibility when choosing materials and furnishings.  

Because an interior design project is highly collaborative and based on hard-to-define personal preferences, it’s most important to choose a designer who communicates clearly and listens closely to you.
