What is Home Staging?
Your home represents a major investment. Smart homeowners understand the value that Home Staging plays in selling this valuable asset.
However, Staging is more than just packing up personal photos and organizing closets. At Switch Design Company, we look at many key factors when creating the balance and mood needed to sell a home. Our goal is to accentuate your home’s best features and showcase it in the best possible manner.
The Staging Professionals at Switch Design Company will create a plan to suit your situation – whether you need a little guidance or a complete home make over.
Helping Home Owners
Emotional attachment to a home can make it easy to overlook flaws that potential buyers will in fact see. When you work with Switch Design Company, you get a professional, impartial plan for preparing your home to appeal to more potential buyers.
We provide more than just a neutralized, sterile looking space plan – as we make Staging recommendations, we are mindful of the dreams, aspirations and lifestyle of the target audience. Switch Design Company helps your home tell its story to potential buyers. Let us show you how we can help you sell your home faster and for more money.
We all know that when selling a property, Real Estate Professionals can choose from a broad range of marketing tools to attract buyers. Home Staging is one of these tools for many of the Spokane area’s most successful Brokers.
We consider ourselves part of your Real Estate Team. From complete Home Staging services, to open house assistance and quality listing photography, Switch Design Company works hand-in-hand with you to get your client's property sold.
Occupied or Vacant Staging Options
Option 1 – “Occupied” Staging:
Many times homeowners will continue to live in their home while it is listed for sale. This is perhaps the most valuable time for having a Home Staging Plan…it’s a game plan for creating and maintaining an inviting space for potential home buyers while you still live in the home.
A Switch Design Company Staging Consultation begins with a thorough evaluation of the property. With an eye toward how the home will be viewed through listing photography or in-person showings, no detail is overlooked. We review property condition, furniture arrangement, and use of space.
With these items in mind, we will produce a detailed, written plan for Staging every area of your home. We will walk you through our recommendations and will help you determine the most efficient way to prepare your property for listing. Should you desire some assistance with the implementation of the Staging Plan, Switch Design Company would be happy to help! Contact us for more details.
Option 2 – “Vacant” Home Staging:
Vacant homes can sometimes feel sterile and lifeless. Thoughtful Staging with quality furniture and accessories can turn a drab home into a very inviting space.
After an initial visit to your home, utilizing our professional experience with space planning, proper use of color, flow, and lighting, Switch Design Company will develop a customized Staging Plan. Quality furnishings, artwork, foliage and lifestyle accessories specific to the property´s needs will be selected from the Switch Design Company inventory. Thoughtful Staging helps home buyers envision life in the space — slowing down to really look at the lifestyle your home has to offer.
As a full-service Home Staging firm, Switch Design Company will deliver, set-up, and, once the home sells, remove all Staging items as a part of this Home Staging service.
Will Staging Really Affect Your Home Sale?
It’s a proven fact that Staging works. Data shows that a minimal investment in Home Staging results in big dividends – you recoup your Staging dollars by selling your home faster thus avoiding a costly price reduction.
A well-Staged home also creates a positive first impression for potential home buyers both online, in print, and in-person. It highlights the desirable attributes of the home, suggests care by the homeowners, and will help the prospective buyer envision living there. The Home Staging professionals at Switch Design Company are skilled at creating a welcoming, neutral, universally appealing space that will target the appropriate potential buyer.

Jennifer co-founded Switch Design Company because she loves interior Design. Her understanding of color, form, function and aesthetics is one of the pillars of the Company. This passion for interiors is reflected in her hobbies too: giving new life to worn out furniture and she’s not afraid to push the limits (so says the bright yellow piano in her living room!). One of her favorite things is when a Staging client’s home sells and the same client invites Switch Design Company to help “set-up” their new home.
Her personal life shares our company motto: “Making Good…Better!” Whether it’s a recipe, family activity, vacation plan, or visit to the gym, Jenn goes the extra mile to make each experience great.
Jennifer grew up in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. She attended Seattle University where she received a degree in Business Marketing. While in Seattle, she reconnected with a life-long family friend, married, then happily moved back to Spokane. She and her husband, Sam, have two daughters, one dog and an occasional frog or fish.
