What is Redesign?


Redesign is based on established principles of Design

  • Balance (Equalizing the visual weight of objects )

  • Rhythm (Patterns of repetition and contrast)

  • Harmony (All elements come together in a unified whole)

  • Proportion and Scale  (The ratio of one part to another and the size of one object as it relates to another or the space it is in.)

  • Emphasis or Focal Point  (An architectural feature, view or other anchor in a room)


Why Should a Home be Staged? 

Staging a home is a process to prepare the home for sale by:

  • de-cluttering

  • de-personalizing

  • room editing

A typical redesign staging involves using what the homeowner has in their home and rearranging it to show the home to its best advantage. As with interior redesign, we do not buy new things or spend a lot of money.
