Custom Home Interiors is proud to announce the “Next Stage” of Home Staging!

No Comments

Just imagine…. you have to stage a condo, quickly.

Do you rent a moving truck, hire movers and move a bunch of bulky furniture into the space?  Do you pile it all in the back of your own vehicle?

Or, do you place an entire living room set neatly into the trunk of your car?

With Next Stage Furniture, you can carry an entire living room set in your car, bring it into the house and set it up yourself all in 15-20 minutes! This innovative furniture is designed to simplify your life by dramatically reducing the time and cost it takes to stage homes, apartments and condos on the real estate market!

Custom Home Interiors is pleased to be an authorized distributer of Next Stage Furniture! These products utilize corrugated fibreboard materials and upholstery grade slip covers, which allows the furniture to be extremely light weight and store flat. The furniture is lab tested to hold up to 1000 lbs, making it safe for an average person to sit on it.

Bathroom Renovations – From “Overlooked” to “Incredible”

No Comments

The bathroom is often one of the most outdated areas in the home as it is not a highly visible area.  But by tearing down the outdated wall paper and updating those mustard yellow fixtures, the value of your home can increase significantly.  So why not unveil the hidden potential that exists in your bathroom!

Minding your budget, you can choose to renovate your bathroom in one go, or work on it in stages. Either way, here are some helpful tips to make the most out of your bathroom space!

• The variety available in tiles today is endless.  Ditch the linoleum and install a beautiful porcelain tile for the floor, such as the one seen below.  This tile has the look of a linen suit, gorgeous and unique!

• A fresh coat of paint goes a long way!  Think “spa atmosphere” and work with muted colours.  Some of my favorites from C2 include “Seraph”; a pale, soft grey, and “Parchment”; a warm fawn shade.

• Replacing the fixtures will make a huge difference.  The standard builder fixtures do not add any “sparkle” to your bathroom.  Consider the two sink faucets below.  Which one would you choose?

Lighting can make a world of difference in the bathroom!  A chic pot light in the shower and over head vanity light complemented by simple wall sconces make it easier to see when shaving or applying makeup.

• Small details and accessories go a long way, adding a sensible and aesthetically pleasing touch.  A stylish teak bench in the shower, glass apothecary jars on the vanity and a storage unit for towels marry practical and pretty!

The bathroom should be a retreat.  Update this space to make the most of it now for your own use and to attract potential buyers for the future!  If you are considering a bathroom renovation in your own home, visit Custom Home Interiors Showroom & Design Center to “ignite your imagination”!

Say it with me, “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh”.
