Professional organizing and home staging are two terms that are not interchangeable, so understanding what the difference between them is will help you choose the right service for you. Here’s how professional organizing and home staging differ.
Professional Organizing services are for individuals or business owners wanting to have organization and ease brought to their lives. Professional organizers will assess organizing styles and preferences, guiding homeowners through the difficult decisions they will undoubtedly face. They have both the skill and proper training to provide clarity and guidance when needed. It can be difficult to part with something that may seem important, but you will be relieved when you do. Professional organizers are meticulous and hold the necessary expertise to sort out all the essential items you need to keep, as well as which ones you can get rid of.
Professional organizers do all of the physical labor, so you don’t have to. They will coordinate pick-ups with donation centers and junk removal services. They will also use the services of consignment shops, shredding companies, cleaning companies, auction houses, and charities. Homes are generally packed in just a few days, meaning you will not have to be surrounded by boxes for weeks on end. A home can look and function well within just a few days – leaving the individual(s) feeling more relaxed, calm and stress-free in their own space.
Home Stagers are skilled in setting scenes within a home, so you get as much as you can when you sell your home. Home stagers are also usually interior decorators. This is a service you would use when you don’t have the patience to go through every item you own to figure out whether to get rid of it or keep it. Home staging de-personalizes a home, while highlighting its most impressive features. The home is made to appear brighter, warmer, and more inviting. As on a stage, home staging is all about creating the illusion of a home looking in a way it normally does not. It is meant to be done in order to sell a home.
