Professional Home Staging vs. Interior Design: What’s the Difference?
It would be a common mistake to think that the services that Staging Dallas provides is aligned with the services that of an interior designer/decorator. Both have to do with using décor and design to create a sense of place, both work inside of your home. However, there is one critical difference that sets these services apart – professional home staging creates mass appeal, while interior design is specific to your preferences.
Staging Dallas uses a very well thought-out strategy to appeal to the majority of those that are looking for a home. The main goal of Home Staging is to get a larger return on investment and more money in your pocket. We do this by:
Removing, depersonalizing the interior of your home
Using neutral color palates
Providing inoffensive and aesthetically pleasing artwork
Create a welcoming environment for the potential home buyer

Above is a recent Dallas home staging by Staging Dallas. By using neutral colors, pleasing artwork and tastefully placed décor, the room pulls several aspects together to appear inviting while attracting a wider audience.
Alternatively, the goal of interior designers/decorators are to make your current living situation more pleasing to you. They do this by:
Personalizing your space
Taking owner’s opinions into consideration
Using bold, eclectic or family-oriented artwork
Highlighting family heirlooms or sentimental décor
While you do probably have a fabulous taste in décor and know how to arrange furniture, it’s always a good idea to get a third party staging professional to help sell your home. Studies show that professionally-staged homes have a 9-10 percent increase in offers, and most always sell quicker, because they have mass appeal and simply put – buyers can see themselves living there (and not you!).
The more people that can visualize themselves living in your home will cause an increase in offers, which ultimately results in a higher bid. Let Staging Dallas revamp your interior to appeal to the masses and leave that home decorator for your next home!
