Staging a luxury home – before and after scenes

Real estate agents will tell you that professionally staged and furnished homes typically sell more quickly than homes that haven’t been staged.

Brook Furniture Rental, one of our sponsors, invited us to a before-and-after look at a newly-built 5-bedroom, 5 ½ bath home at 3 Baker Ln in Naperville. The home is priced at $1,150,000.

Brook teamed up with Chris DeBoo of Simply Staging to transform a beautiful — but empty — home into a warm showplace designed to provide a “wow effect” and make home buyers feel at home. Join us for a brief look.

Each of their staff members has a great design sense and are so personable. Their furniture selections suit every taste, from traditional to contemporary.
