FAQs

Home staging is not decorating.

  • It’s a feeling
  • It’s a business of presentation that creates higher returns – faster.
  • It’s done by enhancing your homes overall visual appeal and transforming and defining spaces so potential buyers can envision themselves living there.

The True North Staging team are professionals that are passionate about what we do. Your home is treated like it is our one and only job and we stage accordingly. We like to think we put a little of soul into every stage.

  • We work closely with real estate agents staying up to date with market trends.
  • We have the knowledge and experience to get the outcome required – SOLD
  • We have a large warehouse full of furniture and accessories to suit a variety of homes – contemporary, classic, casual, coastal, urban etc so we can insure your home is presented and market ready right down to the smallest detail.
  • Still unsure? – just check out our testimonials from our happy clients.

One size does not fit all when staging a home so the cost of staging your property will depend on the size of your home, access and other variables.

Please view our packages (under ‘Our Services’) which while not definitive will give an idea of what investing in property staging with True North Staging will cost. We are also open to working with budgets where possible to best suit your needs. Please ask and we will do our best to assist.

Since the restrictions Covid 19 place on us from time to time we are now pleased to offer virtual quotes. Please give us a call (0220210114) to get a firm quote.

Generally the True North Staging team can spend anywhere from 3-6 hours onsite setting up, depending on the size of your home. This doesn’t include all the behind the scenes work such as selection, packing and getting everything delivered. Once delivered is when the real fun starts!

Our price includes selection, delivery by professional movers, insurance (see terms and conditions), pack up and removal. And of course all the furniture and accessories for the hire period. Our process is as follows:

  • Selection – upon acceptance of our quote we will select the perfect pieces from our warehouse that best complements your home to create a cohesive look throughout.
  • Delivery and Installation – once all the furniture and accessories are delivered we will style your home down to the smallest finishing touch. Your home will be transformed ready for photography, marketing and open homes.

INTEGRATED STAGING
Our clients left a hot pink table and grey velvet sofa that we needed to work with.
We gently eased into these colours with cushions to match but lightened up the room with light coloured chairs and rug.

BLACK & WHITE
@greem_cafe is for real. An amazing place I found scrolling through insta (as you do.) Even though I love black and white we do use colour in our staging @truenorthstaging even though it may be subtle sometimes!

DREAMING
At this stage we @truenorthstaging dream of getting back to doing what we do best. Transforming homes into highly sought after properties that won't be on real estate listings for long.

DECLUTTER
Wish my office table was this tidy!
I guess that's a clear difference between reality and a staged property. 
Declutter, declutter, declutter.

DIY
I love the long narrow mirror on the far wall below the window. I had wanted to use it for this room but it was white. So a quick repaint and presto a smart new black mirror to add interest and definition.

TEXTURES
Here @truenorthstaging we love to work with texture. Texture is a great element we use especially when we stage without a lot of colour. Texture stops this room from feeling flat by adding visual interest. Plus it helps to create a cozy vibe to a room. Beautiful staged apartment @sonjaellisadesigns

CLOCHE
French word for bell.
Styling with a cloche is a great way to highlight and elevate objects.
They are also great to add interest to vignettes whether on a coffee table, mantle or in the kitchen.

TREASURES
These are what makes a home. All those treasures you collect over the years with their own stories to tell.
- a print bought out shopping with a dear friend
- the console made by my son taking metalwork lessons
- flowers foraged on the roadside whilst in lockdown
