Selling yourself as a decor specialist

Before you ever sign a contract with your client you are being judged. The moment he or she walks into your office the client is making judgments and assumptions based upon what they see within your office space. If you are just keeping your items in folders scattered around the floor of your living room you appear unprofessional. It is irrelevant what your business skills are because all the client sees is the sloppy side of your business. It would be a shame to lose potential business over something as minor as décor. On the other hand you also have the ability to win over new customers with your personal office design. Going back to our lawyer example you may want to have your office looking like a law library and a professional space that tells any visitors that you are a top of the line lawyer.

Preparing a space like this can be challenging on your own. After all your expertise is not in design but, there are people who can do this for you. Interior decorating services are specifically designed to help people decorate the area for each specific need. They will take your visions and apply them to the space around you. They can take that empty dull living room and transform it into a professional work space that is conducive to your job and professional in appearance to your clients. Off the top of your head you may be thinking that an interior decorator would be a waste of time and money but, it would only take one customers to pay off your professional space decorating. Once you get a space designed it will stay that way for years and the cost is very minimal. Most interior decorators do so as a side business. Most of those businesses don’t pay enough for a full time salary but, as a potential client this is a good thing for you. First of all, you can often negotiate and receive a great price on services. This is great on its own for saving money but, since the business is small you are most likely the only customer at that moment. This means that you are on the top of the priority list and your job will be finished as fast as humanly possible. No longer will you be dealing with contractors that take months to finish a job.

Staging a home is right !

There is no place like home, after food and clothing the next definite everlasting need man has is the desire for a home.

This is why real estate business is ever green. If you want to sale your place, you can undoubtedly earn great if the selling is done right, but the market place always offers competition, if you want to win, you need to add some extra quality, a chunk of excellence, that makes your private residence appealing & makes it stand out.

Yes home staging is the solution that I recommend. A totally ravishing makeover of your lovely home.  The aim is to enhance the already existing qualities to an extent that it caters to the widest audience , and makes the selling much more profitable and much less tedious. Three basic packages for Austin Home Staging services are widely available from all stagers.

Professional staging agents work on different grounds & levels. The homes best features are highlighted through vacant accessories packages. A professional agent will work on kitchen, master bedroom, living room, secondary bedrooms and dining room.

A good agent will understand the mood of your home; yes they do have a mood, a pulse, warmth that makes you feel at home. That agent focus’s on that snug feel of home.

The agent I have found will estimate nature and the style of the home, matches colors, creates a link between them and accessories for a pleasurable, satisfying look. Then comes the vacant furnished, which is a comprising of everything in the accessories deal, with additional furniture.

The rooms of the home that gather the most attention are the rooms of common like the formal living rooms, family rooms, dining (formal) areas, breakfast areas, the entry of a home and occasionally (if budget requirements are met) a master bedroom. Finally, the occupied package, in which a home that is still inhabited is presented for the purpose of sale.

Our agent will evaluate the home from inside and outside, will guide the homeowner in listing out the items required and will make suggestions for making the home  striking beautiful.

We work as a team and collaborate with the owner of home. We accessories the place, create space, make furniture rearrangements. And give a spacious relaxing look to home.

Actions that require quick attentions like plumbing issues and hardware needs, Painting and repairing works are listed.

Those items are marked that need to be placed in storage.

Thus a proper report on house maintenance and a checklist of all recommendations is provided to homeowner. A copy of it is provided to the listing agent also. Our agents are quick and thorough in their assessments and evaluations. Making the process of sale swift and efficient.

Vetting a Decorator

Spending time on the internet researching your next interior decorating project is great.  However, if you really want to get the ball rolling you need to contact a designer that looks interesting to you.  Many times interior decorators will have a large collection of Interior Decorating pictures from previous jobs.  While some of these may be posted on the web site, many business owners do not have the time to post every single picture taken.  When you contact an interior decorator you can inquire about additional photos to give you a better idea of the levels of decoration that he or she is capable of.  This also gives you a chance to ask about unique situations or designs that you may have in mind.  Perhaps you are interested in the 19th century New York style look for your new space.  A room designed to this theme may not fit the bill of an everyday client.  Therefore you may not find many pictures of this theme on the decorator’s website.  The point is that contacting an interior decorator is the best way to choose the new layout for your space.

Depending on the interior decorating company that you contact, you may have the option to view a full showroom.  This allows you the opportunity to view more than just pictures.  While a picture may be worth 1000 words, viewing a finished job is worth a million.  I taking a trip to the show room you get to spend as much time as you want walking around to get the feel of the room as well as see a different layouts and artistic pieces chosen to complement the space.  Although showroom floor may not be designed to your exact taste, it gives you a chance to view the potential.  Do not fret over the theme you see at the display because the interior decorator will be able to take the theme you are most interested in and create it in your own home with as much detail as any showroom floor.  Besides you don’t want your home to look like a showroom floor.  While that may be beautiful, it is and you.  You need a space that is designed for you and only you.  If you are still nervous about decorating your space just contact a local Austin TX Texas interior decorator and explain what you are interested in doing.  Most likely he or she will already have an idea of what you envision but, take the time to complete and in home consultation seeking put your mind at ease as your home is tastefully decorated to the level in your dreams.
