Events décor

If you are in the business of real estate or have an interest in home staging as a service, you will need to have access to the right home décor or Events décor products and a good strategy too. Home staging is not just about rearranging the furniture. It involves repairs, cleaning and then updating and placing furniture and decor items so that the space attracts the right target audience and results in a sale. Investors and real estate agents are working in a thriving industry and as such, they often require home staging services and event décor services.

 

Those who have a special interest in home decorating and event décor can benefit from starting up their own home staging service. There are no requirements for certification in this industry. There are, however, courses you can take if you want to boost your skill set and credibility. Below we have included a few tips to help you get started:

  • Do your market research so you understand what the demand is before you get started.
  • Make sure that you have a business plan in place and that you have the correct funding too.
  • Invest in equipment and props:
  • It’s not enough to just have items of furniture around, you must invest in brand new pieces that are odor and stain free.
  • Make sure that you have clean and conveniently located storage facilities for these items too.
  • You can find great bargains at home décor websites and home decorating stores such as SNK Enterprises.
  • Create a portfolio:
  • Customers will want to know what your skills are so you might have to offer a free service a couple of times so that you can build a portfolio of your skills.
  • Collect photographs of the staged home and make them readily available online and in print to your customers.

These are just a few tips to help you get your home staging service started.
