Home Staging & Interior Design for New York City and the Hamptons

Designed to Appeal’s home staging expertise will emphasize the best features of a house or apartment while improving or downplaying the less marketable features so that you can get top dollar with less top on the market. Plus Designed to Appeal can just make recommendations, or take the stress and worry out of it by doing some or all of it for you under tight deadlines.

Houses and apartments that don’t show well online will not sell quickly and for top dollar. Before you take fabulous photos, it’s important to get your home looking as best as it can be. Nearly 77% of buyer’s real estate agents said that staging a home made it easier for buyers to visualize the property as their future home.

Beginning with curb appeal and throughout every room, Designed to Appeal’s home staging services will transform a property into a home that buyers or renters will fall in love with and aspire to the lifestyle it portrays.
