I had a fantastic time working with Sabrina. She did a superb job redesigning and refreshing most rooms in my home, and she was a delight to be with! Sabrina has a terrific eye for color schemes, how to organize spaces large and small, and had really insightful ideas about room layout. She found new ways of placing the furniture I love and with a gentle yet convincing guidance, helped me choose perfect new furniture that goes perfectly with my eclectic taste. The end result is my home is more modern yet classy, warm and inviting. I'm so happy and proud and cannot wait to do more entertaining!

Deb has helped me successfully several times. We sold our house in 2 weeks with her help on home staging. She made great suggestions on simplifying; moving furniture, pictures, decorations around for better appearance; paint color, etc. She also helped us with our full bathroom remodel. She chose the tile, listelle, which way to run the tile on floor and in shower, grout color, pencil trim. It looks beautiful. Never could have done this myself. She has also helped with placement of furniture. She knows how to use a room to it's fullest potential. She has helped with all the design choices for our new home. From brick color to lighting fixtures to flooring to granite to shingles.... She has an eye for color, knows what is trending, what to stay away from. She is a delight to work with and knows her stuff. I highly recommend Deb Bly.

Honestly I never thought I needed a stager before. As a real estate broker I was pretty much able to get any house in shape with the help of my client. Last fall I encountered a house a little bit above what I was able to handle so I thought it was time to get the help of a professional. My clients had a small budget, but I convinced them to hire Lidia. Lidia came to the house and immediately began giving us some fresh ideas. Due to the limited budget she ended up using many of things my client already had. She did bring in a few extra touches from her collection. Who knew that new towels and art could do so much! I'm happy to report that the home sold quickly and with multiple offers. I will absolutely use Real Estate Solutions Star again!

Molly did an amazing job. She was professional and talented. She came out promptly for an estimate and staged my condo within 2 days. I was apprehensive on using a staging service but it really made an impact. The furniture, design and decor gave the unit modern, cozy, live in and warm look. I highly recommend Molly Marino home staging service. She is a great choice!

Kim has a great eye for design, color and style. Her inventory feels & looks high end. She goes the extra mile to assure the presentation is perfect - often coming back the next day with accessories/artwork. Kim works very hard to ensure a smooth process from start to finish. When you utilize her service, your property will sell for more $'s in a shorter time - that is a fact. Thanks Kim for all you do to make my business more successful.

    I work with Jodi at Abundant Color on almost all of my listing as a Real Estate Broker in the Dupage county. Most sellers don't realize that the way they live in the house may not be the best way to show the house for sale. Jodi understands how to stage a room to put it in the best light, and show off the room to grab the buyers eye. Jodi is a one stop shop for me, from th inside of the house to the outside landscaping, I can't tell you what an assest it is to know that I can concentrate on marketing a home and she will make my listings sell becuase staging is one aspect most Brokers don't realize is one of the most important parts of a home showing well! Thanks Jodi, look forward to this year being a productive as last! Bill Ashley, Broker Platinum Partners Realtors.

    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.
