Another gorgeous home staged by Hope Designs. This home was a dream come true! Nestled on 5 acres in the beautiful hills of Caledon. The property boasts a pond and its own creek running through the back forest not to mention a gorgeous salt water swimming pool. It was truly a pleasure to stage. The sellers where anxiously awaiting the offers to roll in, thankfully they didn't have a long wait, the property SOLD for list price in under one month.

One sure fire way to loose a sale is to show a home with dingy bathrooms. Home owners want to feel as though they are entering a spa like environment. Tubs and showers typically show wear and tear quite quickly due to mold and mildew.

Its amazing at what an impact simply replacing older dated handles and pulls can have on the overall look of the space. Updated hardware has the ability to turn tired and worn cupboards into a sophisticated and contemporary kitchen.

What a gorgeous house!
This house situated in Toronto Ontario was a PLEASURE to stage. The open concept floor plan was quite tricky but I think we mastered it.

Hope Designs has had a BUSY summer. The market is improving and showing signs of recovery. As evident by the number of SOLD signs cropping up in Toronto and the GTA.
Houses are typically selling in less than a week, with many as quick as overnight!
Staging has become even more important with today's highly competitive market you can't afford not to stage your home!

Hope Designs Recent Article on REDESIGN
As a Home Stager and Redesigner, I feel it is important to spread our message that "Staging Works" in as many places and homes as possible. I have published several articles on Staging before and I felt it was time to also spread the word on Redesign, since it is a relatively new term and concept but well worth bringing to the forefront. Imagine having the luxury of having your rooms redesigned by a professional decorator redesigner for a fraction of the cost compared to traditonal design rates.
