NO SPACE IT TOO BIG OR TOO SMALL TO BE BEAUTIFULLY ORGANIZED...
~ Clutter is not just the stuff on your floor. Its anything that stands between you and the life you want to be living.
I LOVE interior design and I pride myself on looking for design elements that will suit your life and your personal style.
Depending on how extensive your room make-over is, I can either refer you to a trusted expert in the area of home improvement, or if you are like me and love DIY (Do-it yourself) projects we can work together to create a room that is completely tailored to fit your specific needs and express your unique style.
If you wish to do a room make-over for your child or teen I urge you to encourage their involvement. This way I can incorporate their personal style and interests into the design, while I teach them how to use the systems and tools that I put together for them so that they can more quickly and easily maintain and enjoy their new, unique and personal space.
Preparing your home to sell can seem like a daunting task. It is my job in this situation to look at the home from a buyers standpoint.
This will take a little bit of emotional detachment on your part, but in most cases your home will sell more quickly and produce a higher rate of return on your investment.
As an interior stylist I will be looking for ways that I can maximize the space of your home by moving furniture and accessories as needed, decluttering and neutralizing your home.
In this regard it will be very much like professional staging ~ only we will be using items that you already own to their maximum potential.
I will advise you if I do not think an item is usable in which case I will pack it up, making it one less thing for you to pack on moving day.
The major goal in preparing your home for sale is to declutter your home. When you put your home on the market it is best to get rid of any superfluous items that detract from the rooms. Hide figurines; throw out or recycle junk mail, newspapers and magazines; file disheveled papers; and put clothes, shoes and the like out of sight.
We will also want to neutralize the home. Remember that any potential buyers need to imagine themselves living there. Make it easy for them by removing as many of your personal items such as family pictures, offensive wall coverings or in-your-face accessories as you can.
Don't take it personally... As soon as you decide to make the commitment to sell your home, you need to think of it as a product. One that you want to sell fast and get top dollar for. I CAN HELP.
I can help you work through the daunting task of preparing for your move in a systematic manner. I can help you to separate your belongings into:
- items that are to be sold or given to charity
- items destined for storage
- items transitioning to your new home
- items to be discarded
Before the movers arrive, I can pack up your belongings in a way that will make your unpacking as efficient as possible. I believe that spending a little extra time on the packing process will not only ensure that your belongings arrive safely but that unpacking will be as quick and easy as possible.
Before setting up your kitchen, I can line your shelves and cabinets so they are protected from the first day. (lining materials to be purchased at the client's expense)
UNPACKING & ORGANIZING:
I can help remove the stress associated with moving into a new home by doing all of the unpacking for you, ensuring your move is efficient, easy and as stress-free as possible.
