It’s ok, you can admit it, we won’t tell anyone. Many people have a fear of the unknown. Doing something never done before takes us out of our comfort zone. My hope is that you will feel a little more comfortable after reading this.
Why people fear staging or redesign:
- Lack of knowledge about the process
- Lack of history and experience working with a stager or designer
- Worry it will take too long and cost too much
- Fear of losing control
Allow me to ease your fears. At Linda’s Elegant Staging and Redesign, we start every process with a consultation. For the purpose of staging, the client is involved in determining what items will be used and what items will be “prepacked” for the move. Because many clients live in their homes during the selling process, and people don’t live in staged homes, careful consideration is made to ensure the family is able to function normally during this time. Many times, after the consultation the homeowners are able to take our suggestions and complete much if not all of the staging themselves. However, if our services are utilized, we are conscience of time and budget.
When it comes to the design process the consultation is even more important because the design process is collaborative. Once goals and expectations are clearly understood clients are walked through a step-by-step process. Projects can be broken down room by room and services are charged for in a clear-cut way. Clients are completely in control and are able to schedule projects as time and budget allow.
At Linda’s Elegant Staging and Redesign our goal is to help you love and make you more comfortable in your home even if you are in the process of selling. We also endeavor to make the process comfortable.
See, now don’t you feel better?
