Wellington interior design company HomeStaged arranges professional home staging for agents, developers and homeowners in the Wellington region that is customised to their space and needs. The company takes the stress out of getting the property ready for open homes by providing a total package. They design the space, procure the staging furniture and accessories, transport these pieces and leave the home ready for new buyers.

Home staging brings in the designer touch without breaking the bank. “Home staging is the art of presenting a house in a way that appeals to the broadest range of buyers in the market at any one time,” says designer Megan Hand. Experts from HomeStaged understand what Wellington residents are looking for in a home and transform any property into that ideal space.

HomeStaged starts the process by visiting each property and meeting with the owner or real estate agent. While onsite, photos and if necessary, measurements are taken of each room, space, nook and cranny. The property location and surrounding homes are taken into consideration, and this is where they think about the potential buyers and how to showcase the home to attract these buyers.

As part of the staging planning process, the HomeStaged team review the photos of the property, research the neighbouring area further and figure out who the target market is. They also consider how the furniture placement will influence the photography when it goes online. HomeStaged has been in the business for over four years and have plenty of experience in different types of properties from one-bedroom apartments to five-bedroom mansions, brand new homes and dated décor disasters.

While styling each space they take into consideration the property’s layout, era, style, colour schemes, and any features they need to enhance or minimise. This can be quite a lengthy process as each and every individual item is carefully chosen right down to every cushion, picture frame, votive, flower, towels and other accessories.

Once the delivery date is set, they pack, wrap and load everything into their truck ready for delivery. That includes the move, loading and unloading a house lot of furniture no matter where it is located and in all weather conditions. They build flat pack furniture, hang art and iron every piece of bedding. Once everything is ready and in place the process of photographing the property begins and the house is ready for open homes. 

“We get to transform spaces, let our creative flair run wild, create wow moments and feel content that we aided in the sale of the property. We love those parts so much that all the hard work fades into the background, plus there’s no need to pay for gym memberships,” says Megan. The company will remove the furniture once their contract is finished.

HomeStaged offers customised packages for every property so that it sells at a top price and quickly. For homestaging, wellington home staging queries contact Megan Hand on 021 2942837 or email For more information
