Home Staging

What is Home Staging?


Home staging is the art of decorating and restyling.  When preparing your home to sell, staging ensures your home is photographed in the best possible light - and enables sellers to seek top-dollar when listing their home.      

Did you know potential home buyers decide whether to view a home within 15 seconds of seeing the listing photographs online and 95% of home buyers search online for their next home?  To get an edge on the competition, staging your home for photos is a must. Using your furniture and decorative accessories as well as utilizing items and furnishings from our extensive inventory, Happy is the After will transform your home to help you get the maximum return on your investment.

Why Stage your Home?


According to the National Association of Realtors staged listings sell faster and for more money than non-staged homes.  

When staging your home prior to listing, Happy is the After knows what it takes to highlight the important features and details of your home to allow potential buyers to envision their furniture in your space.  Simple things such as removing items from counter tops or restyling mantles or bookshelves, can have a big impact.

When considering which houses to visit, 84% of buyers reported photos to be the most useful information in making their decision.  Let Happy is the After get you to the top of the list of homes they can't wait to see!

We promise, you will be HAPPY with the AFTER!

What Can I Expect?


The team at Happy is the After are experts in the field of staging, restyling and interior design and providing first class customer service is our number one priority.  

Here is a partial list of how we will exceed your expectations:  

  1. We listen to your goals and what you want to achieve and then we make those goals a reality.  
  2. Taking every precaution we will relocate and/or remove items big and small that cannot be used in other parts of the home and relocate those items to another location (usually closets, Texas basements or the garage).  In the event, the item(s) cannot be removed we will do our best to incorporate those items into the design.    
  3. With homeowner approval, we will open closets and cabinets in the home to determine if any items within can be utilized in the restyling/staging process.
  4. During the staging process, we may ask you to permanently remove some furniture and decor from the home.
  5. You can expect to have a beautiful  restyled home.
  6.  You can expect a quick sale and top dollar for your home.



Does the Color Purple Have a Place in Staging?

Pantone selected Ultra Violet as its 2018 Color of the Year. The vibrant color is popping up in more fashion, but when it comes to home design, is it just too bold for staging? After all, no one wants to deal with a purple elephant in the room when trying to stage a home for sale.

But designers are showing tasteful ways to weave in shades of purple to brighten otherwise neutral decorated rooms. Purple up against a mostly all-beige or all-white room can be just the colorful statement to welcome in the spring buying season.

Purple painted rooms still may be a harder sell in a home for sale, but purple hues in pillows, throw blankets, accessories, florals, or even accent chairs or a tufted couch may just be the touch of purple that takes a room from blah to memorable.
