Around Our Town...Business Spotlight - Designers Two
04/01/2005 - Designers Two Home Staging and Redesign Consulting
"I've been intending to organize that garage for two years! I just can't seem to find the time."
"I want a new look, but can't afford to buy all new furniture and accessories."
"We're moving and our house just isn't ready to show. I don't know where to begin!"
Who can't relate to the above dilemmas? We've all been in similar situations at one time or another. With nearly 15 years experience, organizational solutions and decorating makeovers are Kyra Hageman's (owner) specialty.
Designers Two Services include: furniture arrangement, design troubleshooting, picture arrangement, creative ideas, affordable decorative options, organizational problem solving, "use what you have" decorating, access to designer only sources, home staging, color options and solutions, and new home design.
"We strip a space, start with a clean slate, determine a focal point and start bringing items back in. It's like a jigsaw puzzle using items from around your home to complete the process," says Kyra. "We can organize any area of your home or office". Consider file cabinets, closets, drawers, etc.
For those who don't know, home staging is "the process of rearranging, decluttering, and depersonalizing...allowing potential buyers to focus on the features of an occupied home." If the property is vacant home staging involves introducing temporary furnishings to "set the the scene for a quick sale!" It is "crawling into the mind" of the potential home buyer and enabling them to visualize themselves and their possesions in a given setting.
Home staging has a documented success record. In a 1999 survey of 2,772 homes, the average time on the market for non staged homes was more than double that of staged homes. Staging the homes also resulted in higher sale prices.
A resident of Casper for 19 years, Kyra tells us she entered this line of work because she always had a flair for design. She received her training with the Sheffield School of Interior Design along with some additional training in Fort Collins. Energetic and efficient, Kyra comes to us with a long list of references and also is a window treatment consultant for Budget Blinds upon request.
