All About Staging

Written by Jen Clark on December 3, 2014 · Leave a Comment

Did you ever wonder what it takes to stage a house? We'll tell you what it takes! Staging a house is not just fluffing pillows and adding vases of fresh flowers to make it look pretty for the open house. When it comes to staging, the Donna Kerr Group design team covers every base, providing everything needed, from furniture, area rugs and window treatments, to linens, wall art, accessories and lamps.

We use our interior design talent to transform spaces, creating immediate positive reactions from potential buyers, which helps them form an emotional connection to your home. We have an inventory of thousands of items that we draw from to create warm and appealing accents that coordinate with your existing furniture or to completely outfit a vacant property. You can learn more about our home stage service here.

Because we are often asked what we use to stage houses, we decided to tally up the staging materials it took to stage a vacant, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home to give you an example. Check out the full before and after staging photo gallery included below! Here's the list...
