BEFORE AND AFTER
"Before and After" photos are a fantastic way to see what is possible with Rivertowns Staging. Below you'll see some of the transformations that we have made for our customers. Our goal is always to showcase a home’s best features, maximize appeal to buyers, and result in a faster, higher sale.
The owners of this beautiful home wisely realized that the look of their living room needed to be elevated to match the style of their home. The result? It sold for over list price within two weeks of listing.
Staged homes sell for more than empty ones. They look better online and show buyers the true potential of the space.
Staging with on-trend items resulted in multiple offers for the home shown below. And it sold for well over list price!
Some updated accessories were simply added to this homeowner's existing furniture. This is an effective way to update a room without spending a lot of money.
Large furniture can crowd a room and make it feel smaller than it is. By staging with smaller-scaled light-colored furniture, this room feels larger and brighter.
Today's buyer often appreciates a less formal look. A lighter, brighter, and more casual approach targets younger buyers and looks better online.
Often all that is needed to transform a room is a little decluttering and some accessory rentals.
This empty house was on the market for 6 months. After staging, it received several acceptable offers within the first three days! Empty spaces are less appealing to buyers.
By transforming this niche into a small office, buyers could see its potential.
This homeowner's investment in new floors and paint were accented with a dining set that better matched the mid-century appeal of this home.
The breakfast nook, below, was converted back to its original use so that buyers could better imagine having meals in the space.
Children often come with their parents to look at homes. Why not make their rooms appealing too?
Porches are the first thing that buyers see so savvy homeowners stage them too!
"We accepted one of multiple over-list offers just two weeks after we put the house up for sale. We would absolutely hire Rivertowns Staging again and highly recommend Karen!"

Here are even more examples of the transformations that Rivertowns Staging has made for home owners.
This stately living room was emptied of most of the furniture before the house went on the market so a full staging was in order. By adding colorful streamlined furniture and accessories, Rivertowns Staging updated the room, giving it new appeal without losing its warm and cozy feel.
This sunny bedroom had heavy furniture and also needed painting. Rivertowns Staging chose a new color palette of soft grey-blues and white to create a master bedroom oasis. New furnishings were brought in that were less personal and appealed to a large cross-section of buyers.
The bed in this room was over-sized and the walls needed repainting. A vibrant navy blue was selected for the walls and fun children's furniture and accessories to highlight the room's potential for families with children.
This living room felt dark and the furniture was too large for the space. The solution? Rivertowns Staging chose a soothing light gray paint for the walls and a cream colored rug to lighten up the space. Then smaller-scale furniture and a glass topped coffee table were chosen to make the room feel larger. Finally, by adding some updated accessories the room became a fresh and inviting room for potential buyers.
This gorgeous room was underutilized as a storage area. Rivertowns Staging's solution? Add new furniture and a baby grand piano so that buyers could see the room's full potential.
This room felt cozy but a little worn and dark. Rivertowns Staging suggested removing the curtains and painting the walls a lighter color to make the room feel brighter. Then with the addition of new artwork, furniture and accessories, the room was transformed into a chic entertainment-ready family room.
Buyers respond best to rooms with a single purpose. In this home a multi-purpose room was transformed by Rivertowns Staging into a stylish family room.
Buyers would have a hard time imagining how best to use this crowded guest bedroom. Rivertowns Staging transformed it into a cheery children's bedroom to maximize appeal and show buyers its potential.
This is a good example of an "occupied" staging, where the homeowners are still living in the home. Using the homeowner's sofa, lamp and end table, the room was updated with a new rug, coffee table and accessories by Rivertowns Staging.
An occupied staging in a child's bedroom: first the room was de-cluttered and then new bedding and accessories were added to create an inviting bedroom for prospective buyers.
You can see the difference that staging can make, but are you wondering if staging delivers a proven return on your investment? Click here.
"We accepted an offer on the Monday after the open house. I think the staging was very beneficial. The buyers liked the ‘feel’ of our house. They could really see themselves living here.”
—Maggie J., Hastings-on-Hudson
