How To Stage a House:

A Room By Room Guide

"Creating a soothing sanctuary. The master bedroom is where we spend 1/3 of our lives, so why not make sure it looks soothing, clean, and stylish. Add solid white bedding (avoiding busy patterns) and layered pillows while removing excess furniture and clutter. A well-staged master bedroom helps showcase an inviting and calming feel for prospective buyers, making someone feel like they can move right in." – Step By Stage Interiors

Review from Donna S.

This was worth every penny! They were so easy to work with, responsive and professional every step of the way. They turned my Moms house into a modern, luxurious home. We definitely attracted the right buyers and her home sold for over asking price. If ever needed, I will definitely use them again.

Review from James M.

Excellent company and very professional! If you are considering staging your home this is the company to use. I sold my home in two days and had over 50 showings with 22 offers. There is no way I would've had the interest or traffic I received without the staging. Well worth the time and effort!

Review from Roger G.

Anne and her team did an amazing staging job at my home in Northeast Lakeland. We received a cash offer for 20% over the appraised value (our full asking price) in about 3 days. They were extremely quick getting in and out and were a pleasure to work with. I would recommend them to anyone selling a home.
