Harmonious Spaces educates clients about how to best merchandise your home to create the “wow” factor. This allows potential buyers to imagine living in your house and want to make an offer. It’s a three step process:
We meet with the home owner to educate them on the changes and upgrades that need to be done to the home (set fee). All the recommendations are written in a booklet for the homeowner to keep.
Working within the timeline, Harmonious Spaces can arrange for the rental of furniture and accessories for the entire home or just a few rooms depending on the budget. The timing of delivery would be confirmed and the staging crew scheduled.
Harmonious Spaces will bring in the team to arrange the rental items in order to create the “wow” factor.
Remember – a staged home will sell 2-3x more quickly than an unstaged or vacant home. You only have one chance to make a great first impression. Are you ready to wow them?
Resist the temptation to go out and shop for “Organizing Supplies” until you have actually sorted and purged what you have. You don’t want to waste your money on something that looked great in the store but isn’t the right size or shape for what you want it to hold.
Consider reusing furniture in other rooms. It can be an inexpensive way to change the feeling of the space plus provide added storage. A small dresser that is no longer needed can be placed in a front entry with a lamp and key bowl. Hang a picture or photograph (or a grouping) and you’ve created a lovely vignette to welcome guests!
The bonus is that you can store scarves, mitts, cell phone chargers, etc. in the drawers and you will always know where to find them when you’re on the go.
For special occasions – consider gift certificates for local restaurants or theatre tickets as gifts for the person who “has” everything. They will be able to enjoy the special gift and the thought you put into it without adding to or accumulating “stuff”
Before buying items in bulk, consider how much money you are really saving versus the amount of space that it is going to take up in your home and how long it will take you to use it up. Items that linger in storage for months add to the clutter in your home and the small amount of savings usually isn’t worth the valuable storage space they consume.
A Great Experience!
If you’re deep in a clutter quagmire like me, I suggest looking for a professional organizer!It was a great experience!
I hired Heidi Kachel of Harmonious Spaces. She was fantastic. Able to keep me motivated throughout the day, and savvy enough to know what to say to help me just let go of some items that I didn’t need anymore. By the end of the day, I’d filled 4 garbage bags with trash, and filled the whole back of her SUV with things to donate to charity.
A New Kitchen!We thought that we needed a new kitchen when we contacted Heidi. We had no room to put anything and couldn’t find what we needed. After the initial consultation, Heidi set to work helping us purge and organize our cupboards. We removed bags of “stuff” that I hadn’t used or needed in years. When you live a busy life, you need to be smart enough to delegate tasks that are not your strengths. We highly recommend Heidi’s talents and abilities. She saved us the cost of a major kitchen renovation that I didn’t atually need. The organized space gives me time space and energy to enjoy the quality of life.
Getting Rid of Chaos
I am finding this process very helpful to feeling decluttered and less tired in the rest of my world. I appreciate your honesty and patience. My husband was very impressed as am I with what we accomplished.
Thanks so much for your help!
Heidi Kachel approached one of our Board members and indicated she would be interested in assisting us in changing our rather “sadly lacking” office into one that was efficient, effective and welcoming. As a non-profit organization our funds for capital expenditures are almost nonexistent and our focus was upon our programs, not our office. Our Board decided the time was right to improve the daily working conditions for our employees. Heidi first met with our Executive Director and administrative assistant. She discussed their needs, wants, “bottom lines”, methods of storing materials. She took pictures and then she went to work! She discussed, sorted, tossed, labeled, made recommendations, organized and transformed. Our two employees can now work together harmoniously and effectively. We highly recommend Heidi. Her skills, sound judgement, empathy and good sense of humour will assist you as you move to a happier, safer, peaceful, more productive environment.
As a busy family of four, our house was getting out of control!! We needed someone who could look without bias at how we were using our space, help reduce what we needed and assist us to better utilize what we have….a pretty tall order? Not when you work with Heidi from Harmonious Spaces!! From the moment we met Heidi in our initial consultation, we knew that her personality and experience would serve us well … and so it has. We are in the process of completing the transformation of our entire living space…in fact as I write this, Heidi has spent the day with our 10 yr old daughter and 12 year old son getting their living spaces in order…the same patience and personable attitude is what puts you at ease and makes Heidi the right professional to help you GET YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER!

What can I expect when I work with Harmonious Spaces?
Harmonious Spaces will work with you to come up with solutions that meet your specific needs and lifestyle. There are a few different options.
- We can work with you directly to do the work plus give you homework to do between appointments
- We can coach you about how to do the work (which would be a paid consultation)
- We can work on sorting items on my own and then have you decide what to keep.
- We can provide a formal room layout design using your existing furniture (which is a paid consultation).
We offer free consultations to clients wishing to find out more about our services. We meet with clients in the space needing organization in order to see the scope of the work. It gives you a sense of how we work since we would ask you questions to find out about your lifestyle and organizing needs. It’s important that you feel comfortable with us being in your home and handling your personal belongings.
