Staging Spotlight: Transforming a Space With Our End-to-End Services

Preparing your home for market is an important step in the sale process and a worthwhile investment that can significantly increase your rate of return. According to a 2023 survey from the National Association of Realtors®, staging can boost the value of your property up to 5%.

At CMFTO, we have nearly 25 years of expertise working with top Chicago realtors and individual homeowners to prepare homes for market. Our experienced team handles all aspects of staging — from editing and organizing to making thoughtful design choices that will appeal to a wide variety of potential buyers. In addition, our white-glove approach includes working closely with our vetted trade resources to make necessary repairs and renovations, such as painting, refinishing floors, and installing lighting fixtures. 

Recently, we worked with top realtor and our friend Suzanne Gignilliat to prepare a co-op on Chicago’s Near North Side for market. Take a look at how we revealed the true potential of this gorgeous property!

Throughout the light-filled home, we embraced the exceptional views of Lake Michigan and the skyline, creating welcoming spaces with an eye toward balanced design.

In the kitchen, we updated the cherry woodwork and neutralized other finishes for a modern and cohesive look. New barstools and sleek, uncluttered countertops create an inviting ambiance while enhancing the kitchen’s functionality.



In addition, our team edited, organized, and refreshed the library, removing most of the owners’ books and creating vignettes with clean lines and pops of color on the bookshelves and desk.



CMFTO’s end-to-end staging services allow you to optimize your home for market. Working with vetted resources, our experienced team edits, organizes, repairs, and updates your home, depending on your individual needs. We’d love to help you prepare your home for sale today!
