So.....no, it's not the same thing. Anyone who knows me knows that my favorite color is red - by far. If you're wearing anything red chances are I'll tell you how much I love it and probably more because it's red than anything else. So when I bought my first home I painted my bedroom red - blood red. It's not a relaxing color and not used for bedrooms often but I LOVED it. Fast forward a few years and my husband sold his home and moved in with me. He does not love red the way I do. So needless to say the bedroom got an updated coat of paint. :(
Home staging is...
purposeful. It's strategic. It's preparing a home to appeal to potential buyers.
Interior design is personal. It's your style, your likes, what works for you. But your style and likes can be polarizing. Many, many people cannot get past what's in front of them and visualize the potential of a space.
Home staging is purposeful. It's strategic. It's preparing a home to appeal to potential buyers, sell for the mazimum listing price and sell faster.
