Decorating Duo

We stage your home to sell fast and for more money.

About Us

Decorating Duo has over 30 years of combined experience creating beautiful interiors.

Why Stage?

Studies have shown that staged homes sell faster and for more money than unstaged homes. Buyers form an opinion within the first 15 seconds of entering a house and tend to stay in a furnished house for an average of 40 minutes versus a vacant house for just 5 minutes. U.S. research states that home staging can reduce a listing's time on the market by one third to half, and could fetch as much as 6% to 20% more than an empty home or a home not properly staged.

Pricing

We offer industry-competitive pricing. Pricing depends on a number of factors, including the size and number of rooms in your home, whether your home is furnished or unfurnished, and the duration of the contract. That being said, here are some approximate prices. Staging preparation (walkthrough, paint colors, and staging plan) is $150.

  • Approximate Unfurnished:
  • Living room / Dining room staging: $1,250 - $2,000
  • Add master bedroom, additional: +$800 - $1,000
  • Add kitchen, additional: +$175
  • Add bath, additional: +$50
  • Add entry, additional: +$50
  • Add additional bedroom, additional: +$350

  • Dependent on size: $750-$4,000

Testimonials

Here's what our customers say about our work.

We originally listed our house, unstaged, and after 2 weeks of no interest we hired Kristy and her crew from Decorating Duo. They arrived on time and had our home transformed in about 2 hours. After the staging, the interest picked up considerably with many comments on how beautiful the home looked.  Kristy is very friendly, compassionate and easy to work with. We would highly recommend Decorating Duo if you plan to sell your home. I was surprised at what a difference it made.
-Laura and Tim Bullock, Danville, CA
Before we repainted the interior of our 4 bedroom house, Kristy helped us select all the paint colors and even recommended an awesome painter, who we ultimately hired. Utilizing her incredible design sense and experience, and taking into consideration our preferences, Kristy made perfect suggestions for wall and accent colors that complimented our existing furnishings.
-Suzanne Bhat, Castro Valley, CA
Kristy is wonderful, and worked with our home as well as our business space. With our home, she helped us arrange our existing furniture and accessories and select new pieces as well. She helped us rethink the way we had set up our different rooms and helped optimize our use of space. She chose great new accessories that worked with our budget and added color and character to our place. For our business she worked extensively with color to create a warm, inviting professional environment. She helped with selecting artwork and we love it. I would highly recommend working with her, as she is very versatile!

Our experience with Decorating Duo could not have been better. When we found out we were moving, we had 5 days to get our home ready. Not only did Decorating Duo accommodate our short notice, they did an amazing job! They work quickly and with great precision. They had ideas that I never would have thought of. They maximized the potential of each room, skillfully highlighting its features. We received endless compliments from everyone who entered. Our home was labeled "breathtaking," "beautiful," and "stunning" by potential buyers and realtors. Many real estate agents said our house was the "best on the market." In the end, we received 10 offers on our home. Our home went for above market value and I am confident this is because of the wonderful staging from Decorating Duo. I will recommend them to anyone I know who is moving.
