Frequently Asked Questions

Staging FAQS

What does the investment for home staging look like?

Our average home staging investment is around .5% – 1.5% of the total listing price of the home. At K. Donavan, we use a proprietary formula to calculate the amount of furniture and accessories your home will use so you never pay more than you need to.

What is your evidence of success?

K. Donavan has staged more homes than any other company in the Reno/Tahoe area and is reviewed by more REALTORS® and homeowners than anyone else. On average, home staged by us sell in half the time of those unstaged.

How does the staging process work?

Each project starts with a phone consultation where we go over your initial needs. Next we schedule a time to see your home to take photos and measurements. Shortly after that we’ll provide a quote for your review.

Do you stage vacant homes?

Yes! Our warehouse of furniture, accessories, linen and artwork allows us to stage vacant homes quickly.

Do you stage occupied homes?

Yes! Our team of home stagers can help homeowners and REALTORS® prepare their home to list. We help with furniture placement, decluttering and even professional photography.

Where do you source your furniture and accessories?

We have relationships with many national suppliers and local stores. You can find items from popular stores like West Elm, RH, Pottery Barn,

Crate & Barrel, Z Gallerie, Arhaus and many more in our projects. We use only high quality, high end furniture and accessories.

How does payment work?

We accept all major credit cards, bank transfers and checks. We also have an option to pay at close, subject to third party credit approval.

Interiors & Design FAQS

Can you help me decorate or choose furniture?

Yes! We’ve helped many clients make finishing touches to their home. By hiring us, you get access to our exclusive designer discounts and exclusive service.

How does the design process work?

We begin with a conversation to discover your home goals, loves and vision for your space. With that information comes the mood board and vision process where we meticulously take what you've shared with us and create a visually pleasing presentation or 'collage' consisting of images, text, and samples of objects in a composition. Once we've come to an agreement, we start sourcing and installing in your space.

How do I prepare for my initial consultation with you?

This entire process is about you! At our initial consultation, we'd love to see examples of what you love and what areas you want to focus on the most. Don't hold back! It's important for us to get a clear picture of what you want to achieve.

Where do you source your furniture and accessories?

We have hundreds of relationships with the top furniture makers locally, nationally and across the world. With your style in mind, we'll present you with options from across brands and manufacturers to ensure we're hitting the mark and creating a space you'll love.

Why you instead of an in-store decorator?

Many in-store decorators provide their services free of charge however you're limited to what their brand can provide. Since we're not affiliated with any one brand, we're able to purchase from across all manufactures giving you limitless options.

How long will the project take?

Our average project takes about 90 days from beginning to end. Keep in mind, depending on the size and scope of your project this time frame could be quicker or longer.

How much does it cost to work with you?

Our cost is tailored to your budget. Whether you're looking to spend a thousand dollars or a hundred thousand dollars, we'll come up with a plan with your budget in mind. No project is too small or too big for us to handle.
