When the Staging Client is Right

  Home stagers have expertise at sizing up vacant rooms and placing furniture and accessories where they will provide the most impact and make an emotional connection to a buyer. In the vacant staging Premiere Home Stagers recently completed, notice the small round table in between the two easy chairs.  I chose this table to reflect [...]

Different Levels of Home Staging

  Did you know there are different levels of vacant home staging?  Each property may have legitimate reasons for using one of these levels.  For example, what I would call "Level I" staging is called "Vignette Staging."  This is where a stager would set up vignettes in each room, but very little to no furniture.

Re-Design Mistakes

  Premiere Home Stagers receives requests for re-designs from time-to-time.  We love doing re-designs as an alternative to home staging.  A re-design means the homeowner is NOT selling their house, but wants a more cohesive, "put-together" look.  They know it just doesn't "feel right," but don't know how to make it better.     For one client, [...]
