Home Staging of a Kitchen Breakfast Room



As a home stager, I've had the privilege of helping many families 
during an exciting and scary transition time in their lives. 
This room is probably one of my favorite transformations.

This darling little breakfast room had perfect features: 
vaulted ceilings, windows surrounding the room, built-in shelving and a desk,
convenient cable and phone hook-up at the desk, 
hardwood flooring, all under a canopy of backyard oak and maple trees.

This darling breakfast room also had dark, dated wallpapering.
I wanted to make the room part of the outdoors. 
A place to enjoy the morning coffee and paper, 
a spot to sort coupons and pay bills (that's not so relaxing), 
a nook to watch the birds eat and bathe outside the window.


The biggest transformation was obviously the removal of the wallpaper.
The brown shelf above the window, the wood blinds, and the lower window mullions
were also removed.


Before.


After.

This is now a great room for relaxing brunches, studious homework and appointment scheduling!

Staging and the right real estate agent sold this house in 1 1/2 weeks!

Staging is not just a surface makeover, or smoke and mirrors. 
The whole home needs to be inspected and in its best condition before listing it.

When the new home-owners move in, they deserve to have their new-to-them home be everything they thought it was when they signed the contract.

As a home stager, and a Christian, I am aware that what I leave behind speaks volumes about my character.

Good character is the best insurance! 
Proverbs 11:6

  1. That is gorgeous! Did the original home owners want to stay!?? I would have!!!

    It's so bright and alive now. And to think that we all used to "love" that traditional look at one time. That white and green just pops in the room now!

    BTW, I loved your comment about Louisa and Penelope on my post!

  6. Absolutely beautiful! I'd buy that home in a heart beat. It's amazing how neater a room looks without area rugs. I pulled mine recently because the clean look was so much nicer. A little inconvenient since things slide around though. lol

  8. I am in love with the paint colors you chose for this entire home staging -- would you be willing to share the paint names? This room in particular is striking! Awesome job!
