Creating Aspirational Livings Spaces

Have you ever walked into a house for the first time and felt instantly at home? A home should feel warm and inviting, but should also reflect your personal taste and fit your lifestyle. That is a lot for one space to do! If you are selling your home, you want potential buyers to walk in and never want to leave. Designs by Bishop create an aspirational feel to their projects, while helping sellers maximize their sales price. 

Living spaces should look like they’ve … well, been lived in! You don’t want to present a sanitized look, a cold empty space or highlight a strange layout. Instead of presenting the bare bones of a house, Designs by Bishop combine a passion for home design, home decor ideas and an understanding of what buyers want to see. Efficient, local and talented, there is no one better to call than the professional stagers and decorators at Designs by Bishop.

Home Staging: How Great Designs Can Help to Sell Your Home

For a real estate agent, hosting an open house is just part of the job but to owners, it is a make or break for your home sale. An open house is an opportunity for potential buyers to build a connection with your house. More often than not, a buyer will walk out of an open house knowing that they are going to make an offer — so, how do you get them in the door? 

Homeowners set up their space to meet their needs. The issue when selling is that this doesn’t suit everyone. You might need a play room for your kids while a buyer needs an office or workspace. Pink walls and tons of toys can hide the perfect work area or studio. Professional stagers will help you clear the clutter and showcase potential. 

Reports show that professional home staging services can help to achieve a higher price when selling and can even lead to bidding wars. The more interested parties that you have, the higher the chance of exceeding your listing price. An open, airy and well designed home combined with expert photography will help your listing stand out on MLS sites and encourage multiple bids by being universally appealing. 

Home Staging Tips From the Pros:

If you are considering staging a home for sale, here are a few quick tips to consider: 

  • Don’t Just Paint the Walls: Slapping on a fresh coat of paint might seem like the quickest and most cost-effective way to prep a home for showing but this can work against you. Choosing the trendiest colour of the moment might seem like a good idea but it may not work in your space. A lack of natural light makes dark tones look darker and that makes rooms look smaller. Have Designs by Bishop do a colour consultation for you before committing to a colour. 
  • First Impressions Start Outside: If the exterior areas of a home don’t look great, it is easy to assume that the inside isn’t cared for either. A lack of curb appeal might make potential buyers get right back in their car and drive away. 
  • Remove Personal Items: The goal of a home showing is to allow potential buyers to step through the front door and fall in love with a house. It is hard to imagine living in a house when there are photos of other people up on the fridge or framed in the living room. Storing personal items is a great way to create a clean slate.
