Carolina Spaces' owner and lead designer, Joan Inglis, was recently asked by Redfin to provide her secrets on appealing to buyers in the Charleston, SC area, and her response was featured in their blog "37 Home Staging Experts Share the Secret to Appeal to Buyers in Your City."

"Charleston, SC home buyers want to see luxury finishes that are both functional and comfortable - large showers with overhead rainfal; kitchens with an abundance of natural light; and light fixture packages that complement the architecture of the home.  The most preferred colors in new construction, updating materials, and paint are neutrals mixed with whites.  Popular accent colors are all shades of blue.

Buyers want an open floor plan, but they get confused on how to layout furniture.  Builders and sellers need to furnish the open living, kitchen and eating area at a minimum in vacant houses.  Sellers are selling square footage; they should never show wasted space."

Carolina Spaces had the honor of completing numerous home staging projects during the third quarter of 2016:

  • Providing DIY home staging consultations to sellers and Realtors®
  • Furnishing and Staging beautiful vacant properties (resale, new construction and model homes) with our inventory of new and name brand furnishings
  • Staging lived-in properties using the homeowner's own furnishings - supplementing where needed
  • Providing renovation recommendations and material selections to homeowners, new construction home buyers and real estate investors
  • Creating relationships with new clients! 

After we reviewed our successes - and with many stagings to choose from - our team picked our Favorite Home Staging project of Q3! 

This new construction home in Charlotte was staged prior to listing to ensure that the home was show-ready before hitting the market. Carolina Spaces staged both the interior and exterior living areas of this home using our inventory of new and name brand, designer furnishings.

The result? This $1.2 Million staged home was under contract in 14 days!


For luxury home staging, it is important that the quality of furnishings used in the staging are appropriate for the quality and price point of the home. Marketing high end real estate requires a different home staging strategy. To impress high end buyers, the staging must enhance the home's luxury feel and convey a luxury lifestyle. Quality is visible! So Carolina Spaces uses only high end, name brand furnishings that are custom selected for each of our luxury home staging projects. We make sure these properties are presented at their best. Find more information on our award-winning, luxury home staging services is available at here.

Carolina Spaces can help your home sell faster and for the highest price possible - at any price point!  Don't risk losing money with a price reduction!  There is a reason why Carolina Spaces is the market leader locally, and one of the top staging and design companies nationally.

Carolina Spaces took some time to reflect on the past 3 months and all of the home staging projects we had the honor of completing.  During the second quarter of 2016, our team had the opportunity to:

  • Provide DIY home staging consultations to sellers and Realtors®
  • Furnish and Stage beautiful vacant properties (resale, new construction and model homes) with our inventory of new and name brand furnishings
  • Stage lived-in properties using the homeowner's own furnishings - supplementing where needed
  • Provide renovation recommendations and material selections to homeowners, new home buyers and real estate investors
  • Create working relationships with new clients! 

After reviewing our successes - and with many projects to choose from - our team picked our favorite Home Staging project of Q2!

The Realtor® for this resale property in Charlotte reached out to Carolina Spaces to help get the lived-in home market ready.  Our team viewed the property to devise a staging plan and make updating suggestions.  In this case, a new paint color was recommended to freshen up the space. 

As part of our staging plan, we determined which furnishings would stay, which would be better relocated in another area in the home, and which needed to be moved to storage.  

For lived-in Staging, Carolina Spaces uses the homeowner's furnishings wherever possible to save the homeowner the cost of furniture rental.  In this case, it was agreed that some supplemental furniture pieces and accessories would be brought in to complete the rooms.  At Carolina Spaces, we fill in the blanks! 


Our staging was appropriate for the style, location and the $205,000 price point of the home.  And it worked!   This Charlotte, NC home received multiple offers immediately and was under contract within 24 hours!  And it sold for $1,000 over list price!

Professional home staging by Carolina Spaces can help your home sell faster and for the highest price possible!  Don't risk losing money with a price reduction!
