The K&B Difference

  

K&B Staging and Designs combines extensive kitchen and bath design experience and industry knowledge to offer a consultation approach to those serving in real estate professions on how to improve the presentation of the home for resale with a positive return on investment.  We take staging and design to the next level educating clients on the styles, trends, and products that home buyers seek when showcasing your home for resale, whether that preparation is immediate or future planned.  Homeowners, buyers, sellers, and investors, crippled by designer’s block, each benefit from our services through the vision of opportunity created for their homes with a specialty for tired kitchen and bathroom spaces, the heart of the home.   Our services are two-fold:

Home Staging

Home staging is a proven marketing tool.  According to the 2019 NAR Profile of Home Staging report, staging is the only home selling service that brings measurable value to a home's listing.  In fact, ASP staged homes sell for up to 17% more than comparable listings with 88% selling at or above list price!  Those are impressive statistics.  Best yet, staging costs are deductible to the seller as an advertising expense for primary or secondary homes according to IRS guidelines (IRS Publication 523.)  When a home is appropriately priced on MLS based on current market comparables, the seller loses money when opting for price reductions to speed the sale.  However, they conversely gain value and speed of selling time when investing in home staging, all for a tax advantage.


When you employ K&B Staging and Designs to stage your home or listing, you gain the advantage of a design service that can fundamentally aid the homeowner with nearly all facets of listing preparations and staging for showings.  Upon our preliminary meeting, we will first meet with the homeowner and consult on the condition desirable for the home to attract that target buyer.  We will also discuss staging options.  The homeowner can take notes to task this list individually, or we provide a detailed emailed report with pictures.  Once the preparations are agreed upon, the homeowner can request a bid for hands-on preparations such as painting and fixits through referral tradesmen.  If a shower needs retiling, or the homeowner needs cabinet painting and new countertops to freshen up the kitchen, design guidance, product selection, and bids for products and installation services will be provided to the homeowner and listing agent upon request. The homeowner can then pick and chose how they want to leverage their time while they prepare for the showing of their home.  Our services are as flexible as your individual needs.


The goal is NOT to promote the home's decor as much as the home's character attributes through depersonalization of the spaces to appeal to all prospective buyers.  Interior design, while used in home staging, is not the end goal because design reflect's one's personal preference.   When showing your home, we have less than 1 minute from entry to help the prospective buyer visualize themselves in your home.  How?  Primary tasks: clean, declutter, recolor (paint where needed,) creatively repurpose rooms or layouts, compromise on style, communicate with the homeowner and listing team, and commit to the ultimate mission:  to maximize the homeowner's return on the staging investment, and sell the home in less time for more money!

Kitchen & Bathroom Designs

Communication is key!  The goal is to help you solidify your vision and maintain open communication until your dream kitchen or bathroom comes becomes reality!  


First,   we will first meet with you in home to discuss your goals, style, budget and timelines.  Once the project foundation is laid, you will be asked to identify the ultimate dream for your space, and then offered recommendations for the design with products and innovations to add to your WOW!  To preview your project and design options, you have the option to purchase 2020 computer renderings of your kitchen or bathroom as an additional service.  This helps customers to visualize their space before we begin the actual transformation.  


Once your design is acceptable and you're ready to begin, you are referred to preferred vendors and installers to make your vision a reality!  Our shopping services further support you in your selections.  If you have your own suppliers and/or installers, that works too!  Our services are unique to you and your project, and flexibility is imperative to our team effort.
