We staged this 2 bedroom apartment in one of Brooklyn‘s most desirable school districts needed a total make-over. The renters who resided in the unit obviously needed more space (and a good cleaning service). The Living Room was facing the kitchen, when it was occupied by tenants, which rarely shows well.
Similar unit one floor below.
ASNYC brought in a team of contractors that refinished the kitchen cabinets, painted the walls, repaired closet doors and handles and topped it off with a thorough (and much needed) cleaning.
A neutral palette was used for the furnishings in the main room in order to make the kitchen a part of the room and not an intrusion. Grays, taupes and a pop of blue bring life, warmth and a touch of color to the space.
A complete make-over. The lamination on the cabinets was falling off; the doors and the island were badly scratched. We had new cabinet doors made and changed the kitchen from dull cherry to a satin white. The result: a clean, contemporary kitchen that opens into a stylish, hip living space. By adding a soft gray hue to the living room walls, we gave a little more emphasis to the contemporary kitchen while, at the same time, adding depth and character to the living – dining space.

This is one of many higher-end homes we’re staging in Brooklyn these days. It is remarkable how hot this suburb has become, with no sign of slowing down. We are seeing multiple offers even on rentals; house hunting there is as Brooklyn brownstone blogger Jonah Landman wrote “fast and furious.” The Daily News was not exaggerating when it said back in January, “Brooklyn’s totally out of your league now!” Many condos sell for well over a million dollars. With so much potential money at stake, it’s no wonder that home staging is also taking off in Brooklyn. What seller wouldn’t want fair market value for their home?
In this particular condo, the master bedroom was empty and uninviting, a white box of nothing. We painted, the walls in a neutral yet current color, then added bedroom furniture in warm, rich wood tones that shows plenty of room for a queen bed, his and her night stands, a triple dresser (on the opposite wall from the bed) and even 2 ottomans at the foot of the bed! It is the perfect oasis for the busy working couple with small children!

This is what staging does for a property for sale. We identify the target customer and create a living 3D example of the likely lifestyle for that buyer. The result? More potential buyers can easily visualize themselves living in the home; more buyers will take action to purchase (or rent) the property.

It’s always nice to see your own work in the press! These lovely models were featured an article on Curbed. These models were in the process of being finished, I had yet to hang the artwork. Nonetheless, I think the photos make the units look real, spacious, stylish, and good fun. What do you all think? Apparently, they’re being snapped up really quickly.
This was a NYC home staging in Brooklyn, where a 1 BR can cost north of $700K!! It was fun to focus on the mid-century modern designs here, as that is the taste of the target buyer. The appliances and finishes are impressive; lustrous quartz, Viking cooktops and refrigerators – and in a “sponsor apartment”, no less!! (Of course this is a builder, not a sponsor and those early co-op days of the oak-trimmed Formica cabinets are long behind us. Still, there are many who remember…)
There are rental units mixed in, and those units have GE appliances, but still textured gray cabinets and quartz counter-tops. That and lovely 3″ gray wash oak floors.
I love home staging NYC!
