  • Home Staging
Interior
Interior treatment consists of an in house evaluation to determine what items would need to be added, removed , repaired , or rearranged. Then a plan is formulated to work with the best features of the structural architecture, and the planned style of the presentation to maximize the positive selling points of the home.  Finally if needed, we may bring in leased items to coordinate with any items that were retained to complete the overall presentation.
Exterior
Exterior staging often requires blending of various contractors with our designers. Our first phase is a consultation to discuss the positive and negatives of the property and then a discussion of what could be done to enhance it's "visual value" within your budget.
Depending on requirements then items would be leased (if available) or purchased at designer discounted rates to complete the treatment.
Storage
Home staging ultimately requires removal of some things to make the home less of a "day to day" reality and turn it into a "what can be" vision to entice the prospective buyer to look beyond the obvious.  Day to day we may have a pile of DVDs, newspapers or unsightly wires that are part of living that do not offer the best visual cue for someone with their own dreams of what their future could be.  Therefore we offer storage solutions to take care of those items while your home is being "staged" to sell.
  • Interior/Exterior Design
General:
At Uptown Style we feel that the success or failure of any large or small scale interior or exterior design project ultimately rests on the details of the execution. Therefore we use our extensive list of subcontracting CONTACT US to negotiate pricing and offerings at designer discounts to offer the best in service and affordability.  In all phases the designer remains in the forefront to make sure all the elements come together cohesively and in keeping with the overall thematic vision to insure success.
  • Interior Design
Consultation (preliminary)
A designer meets with you to formulate a high level design plan and to evaluate your properties potential to support your vision. Photographs of the area to be redesigned and measurements will be taken to use as cohesive planning elements in formulating a more detailed evaluation of needed services.
Consultation (detailed)
Your designer arranges a more detailed consultation along with any needed subcontractors to go over the high level plan and offer selection choices. These may include builders, painters, flooring/carpeting contractors, plumbers or electricians depending on complexity of the redesign effort. From here a more detailed plan is formulated to work towards the finished design.
Consultation (budgetary)
After the final plan is formalized your designer will meet with you for final budgetary considerations and any last minute changes that would be needed.
Acquisition
Your designer gives the go ahead for any preliminary work that must take place with contracting services (if required) and proceeds to shop for any items that are not part of the contracting services to complete the final design.
Coordination
Finally your designer coordinates all the elements to offer a complete solution regardless of how big or how small the job is. This includes coordination of new or existing furniture, artwork, and day to day essentials to place the finishing touches on your dream design!
