CONSULTATION:  We walk through the home as a buyer would and make note of all items that need to be addressed for the home to show at its best. We then prepare a detailed TO DO checklist for the seller and the realtor.  Our recommendations are often enough to prepare the home for photos and listing.

ART/ACCESSORY PACKAGE:   A budget friendly option for homes that have completed our consultation recommendations but may need a little updating to produce the best online photos and in person showings.  Refreshing Homes can provide accessories and wall decor from our inventory or recommend inexpensive purchases that will refresh the look of your home before putting it on the market.

OCCUPIED PARTIAL or FULL HOME STAGING:  Using your existing furniture and accessories, we will create staging plans for the main rooms of your home or all of the rooms.  We give you detailed directions to create the look yourself or you can have Refreshing Homes come in and rearrange for you.

VACANT HOME STAGING:  Using our furniture and accessories, we create partial or full design plans to best suit your property and your budget. Refreshing Homes offers an extensive inventory of furniture and accessories that can be rented to enhance the look of the home. We also work with furniture rental companies to obtain the perfect pieces for each design plan.

Often times, buyers are unable to visualize the potential of a vacant home.  Without furniture, buyers have no reference for size and scale of the space and therefore, vacant homes seem smaller than they really are.  Furniture and accessories help a buyer see how the rooms can be used so they will picture themselves living there.


CONSULTATION:  We meet to preview the areas you would like to redesign, whether by rearranging and repurposing your existing furniture or updating your space with some new pieces.  We address color schemes, design styles, furniture layout and personal needs of your family.  Our recommendations are often enough to get  you started if you want to complete the redesign on your own.

PACKAGE PLANS:   For homeowners who want additional guidance,  we offer 5 and 10 hour blocks of time to complete your redesign plan with you and stay within your budget.  The hours can be used however you see fit.  We can redesign your space using your existing items or we can create a plan using new pieces that we select together.

When shopping for new items, some homeowners choose to be very hands on and do all of the necessary legwork themselves while others opt to have Refreshing Homes handle everything.  Throughout the entire redesign process, we use online resources to communicate ideas as well as in person visits to make final decisions.
