Home Staging Services

It is a proven fact that first impressions are key to selling your home.

Home staging is the art of preparing a home for sale by creating an environment that stimulates the five senses, appealing to a maximum set of potential buyers. We go the extra mile to create an emotional connection with buyers, getting them thrilled to imagine themselves living in your space.

What are the benefits of Home Staging?

Real estate is a competitive marketplace, especially in Vancouver.

Statistics have proven that staging your home prior to putting it on the market is in the sellers’ best interests. On average staged homes sell for 5%-20% more than non-staged homes and in about 50% shorter duration.

We acknowledge the reality that sellers’ have to work within a set budget and are dedicated to providing the best value within your budget.

What kind of Home Staging options are there?

We understand home staging needs vary from home to home and to accommodate, we provide several options to choose from:

  1. Market ready consultation: A professional home stager will visit your home and suggest changes to make it ready for the market. During the consultation, your home will be assessed on the overall condition, traffic flow, use of space, color, furniture and presence of clutter. This opportunity will ensure your home receives maximum exposure with buyers. The consultation will take several hours and will end with a written report outlining areas of improvement.
  2. Furniture re-arrangement: Your home will be re-decorated with your current furniture and accessories. This is a cost-effective way to leverage the benefits staging provides. This is a great option for those with an adequate amount of furniture and accessories.
  3. Hybrid: Your home will be staged with your furniture with some additional decorative pieces provided by Designs for Life. This hybrid option offers strategic staging illusions that will appeal to all buyers. This is ideal for those who already have furniture but would benefit from fresh accessories.
  4. The Works: This option is best suited for homes with complete vacancy or newly built. Designs for Life will decorate the home in entirety, creating a lasting first impression with buyers.

At Designs for Life we create interiors that inspire. We take pride in staging each individual home to captivate its next buyer! With immense passion for furniture and design we are always on the look-out for the most beautiful staging objects. Our creative team has successfully staged and designed hundreds of properties and continue to do so.

Here is the process we undertake in assessing and implementing your design objectives:


We conduct an on-site visit to review designs, plan spacing requirements and formulating a sense of budget.


A plan outlines recommended improvement areas, design plan(s), pricing, dates and agreements.


In this step, an agreement is made and a schedule of key project dates/milestones are provided.


Home Staging occurs as per schedule depending on project size/complexity. Staged homes generally sell within several months thereafter.


Provided two weeks advanced notice, furniture removal is made in one day on average.


Our furniture is usually available for purchase. Send us a request and we will provide buy out pricing.
