OUR SERVICES

The Design District Limited provides Home Staging and Styling Artistry Services for residential properties preparing for the Toronto Real Estate Market.

Staging is a strategy, and the process is essential in order to showcase the homes best features so that future buyers can envision themselves living there.  

WHAT TO EXPECT

1. The Design District begins with a consultation. One of our stylists completes a viewing of the property with the client in which suggestions are made to improve the property’s layout, functionality, and aesthetic appeal.

2. Following the consultation, The Design District provides a detailed report and quotation based upon requests of the client and recommendations of the stager.

3. On the staging date, The Design District transforms the property using our high-quality furnishings and accessories to create a space that potential buyers can call home. Our experience in the industry is met with the passion to ‘wow’ prospective buyers.

4.The Staging Contract is valid for 30 days. After 30 days, the client has a choice to either extend the rental biweekly or on a monthly basis. If the client chooses not to further extend the Staging Contract, The Design District will schedule a date to pick up furniture.

OUR WAREHOUSE AND INVENTORY

Located in Etobicoke, our 10,000 square foot warehouse facility stores our extensive inventory of high-end furnishings and accessories.

The Design District owns and operates its own delivery truck ensuring that stagings can be completed in ONE day.

The Design District believes that living plants that bloom and thrive serve a practical and aesthetic purpose and definitely enhance any staging. Therefore, you can always expect a relaxed and inviting environment curated through the introduction of live plants.
