How We Work
- Published in Occupied Homes
Rooms in Bloom has a highly successful and effective method of getting properties market-ready. Our innovative and highly creative staging solutions focus on improving a property's overall value and presentation. Our recomemndations are all real estate based, taking into account who the next buyer of the property will likely be and we tailor our marketing & merchandising plans to ensure the property showcases the lifestyle these buyers aspire to have.
Our experienced RE Marketing consultants consider each and every room within the home and make recommendations that – if followed – will add value to the property and make it highly saleable. If you are going to be selling your home and want Rooms in Bloom to be your Staging Partner, here is how we work.
Home Staging Consultations
Consultations are the cornerstone of our custom marketing solutions for our clients and the starting point to creating a PLAN to get a property market-ready. Home Staging is a 2 step process involving both the preparation and merchandising of the home. During a consultation, we will create a comprehensive plan for the home which will address all of the following:
- Curb Appeal & Outdoor Living Spaces
- De-Cluttering & Organization
- Deferred Maintenance Issues
- Color Palettes to create Broad Appeal
- Smart Upgrades with a great Return on Investment
- Room Function
- Furniture Layout
- Lighting Plan
- Layering in decor, textures and pops of colors to maximize the impact of each space
- Vignette merchandising for bathrooms, kitchens and transitional spaces
Consultations can last up to 2 hours depending on the size of the home and are the key to properly preparing a house for sale. We leave our clients with a complete list of recommendations they can either implement on their own, or hire our team to implement on their behalf. Many of the recommendations we make cost no money to do and yet can drastically improve the overall value of a property! Our experienced consultants provide expert guidance and give our clients the confidence to make important changes to improve the overall saleability of their homes.
All consultations are booked online.
Consultations Flat Fee: $225 + HST*
For clients who do not have the time to meet for a regular staging consultation or who live outside our coverage area, we offer e-consultations.
An e-consultation covers the same components as a regular staging consultation however we provide additional written information to help guide our clients through the preparation process. From detailed recommendations to floorplan drawings, we give you all the help you need to stage your home yourself.
All consultations are booked online.
E-Consultation Flat Fee: $300 + HST
Once a consultation has been completed, our RE Marketing Consultants can be hired to stage your home using your own furnishings. With both half day and full day options, this is an affordable and highly effective merchandising solution for home owners who have modern furnishings but who need assistance in creating beautiful and marketable spaces.
Staging hours are booked on both half day and full day time slots.
Half day Pricing: $500 + HST
Full day Pricing: $900 + HST
Staging hours are booked once the consultation is complete. Please contact our office to book a block of staging time.

Your consultant will customize a staging solution for your property once the consultation is complete!

Let's Get Started!
Rooms in Bloom offers customized staging packages for both owner-occupied and vacant homes. Typically owner-occupied properties require just accessorizing as they already have all the necessary furniture to stage each space. When that isn't the case, we offer furniture & decor solutions that will ensure each space is both functional and highly appealing. As we are a full service staging company, all of our packages include the necessary furniture & accessories to properly showcase a space.
Our staging quotes include:
- Furniture & Decor Rental of all items needed to add the WOW Factor to each space in the property. As a full service home staging company, we select all the furnishings needed to effectively showcase the key selling areas in a home. Rentals are all based on our minimum 4-week rental period. Please note that as a full service home staging company we create the complete staging & marketing plans for each space we stage and do not offer just furniture rentals.
- Staging Fees for our team to create a marketing plan to best showcase the home, select all the furnishings & install them into the house/condo on Staging Day. This fee also covers de-staging once the home has sold.
- Furniture & Decor Delivery and Pick Up on your Staging Day
Note: A staging consultation is required prior to receiving a firm staging quote. Please contact us to get started!
