How We Transform Your Home

Did you know that most buyers will make a decision based on their first impressions? Studies have shown that buyers form their first impression of a home within 7-10 seconds — and these initial seconds are crucial to your success.

Our home staging services make the most of these precious seconds to form a positive opinion, by using focal points to optimize each room and make buyers feel attracted to the home. Great focal points will attract the buyer’s eye and create a feeling of comfort.

Our team understands how to identify and highlight the best characteristics of your home to ensure buyers see its potential. Traditional feng shui space planning is used to guide our placement of furniture and decor, in order to enhance the energy of your model home.

Here are some focal points that will make your home shine:

  • Fireplaces — Does your home have a fireplace ro another design feature that stands out? We love to highlight what’s in the home to stage a memorable viewing experience for buyers.
  • Windows — Windows make great focal points. Natural light will help to open up a room and emphasizing a window is a great way to showcase the lighting quality in a home.
  • Art Work — A piece of art will help tie a room together by attracting the buyer’s eye. Art is essential for making walls feel functional and less bare.
  • Furniture — Creating focal points using furniture placement; our supply of gorgeous furniture and accessories provide pieces that will fit perfectly in your model home.

“When faced with the task of selling our first home, our real-estate agent asked us to consider the idea of home staging, a new idea to my husband and me at the time. We called Jenny Hilborn from Centre Staged who made herself quickly available. We were impressed with her professionalism at our home consultation and after making use of a number of her preparation suggestions, she was able to work within our limited budget and with the furniture we had to transform our bungalow into an attractive show piece.

“I recently booked a staging consult with Centre Staged for an upcoming listing I have and I was really happy with how it went. Kelsea did the consultation and the job she did was 10/10. The first thing I’ll mention is that she did an awesome job handling questions from my Seller. Having the technical knowledge she does is so important, but her people skills are a perfect compliment to her expertise. Giving advice on how best to change the look of a home to make it the most appealing to buyers can be a sensitive topic and Kelsea handled it beautifully. The advice she gave for each room was detailed and very well thought out, and when she left, my seller had all the information she needed to maximize the potential in each room of her home. I will definitely be working with Centre Staged again. Very impressed!!”
“Such a fantastic business. Jenny the owner is a true professional and an amazing designer. The homes she stages look phenomenal and her design jobs are gorgeous. Her staff of professionals are incredibly talented and really know their stuff. I had the pleasure of hanging my artwork in their beautiful office space as well. I highly recommend Centre Staged.”
