Naperville, IL (PressExposure) March 31, 2009 -- âRedesign isnât remodeling. Itâs a fast, simple, âGREENâ way to give your home or office a bold new look and enhanced functionality by using the furniture and decorative objects you already own, and thatâs why it has such a strong appeal,â explains GraceAnn Simoni. And she should know. As the owner of Yours Redesigned a home based business in Naperville, itâs her job to help clients understand what redesign is â and what it isnât â which can be a difficult task, given the breakneck pace at which home and design channels are bringing new decorating programs to TV. Every show develops its own twist on the theme. And with each twist, it gets a little harder for the main idea to get through.
GraceAnn Simoni serves on the Board of Directors of Interior Redesign Industry Specialist, the premier professional redesign staging organization whose members are often featured on popular HGTV shows, such as Decorating Cents, and My First Place. Like many IRIS members, sheâs thrilled with the awareness the shows have created, even if they have caused a little confusion in the process. âSometimes people expect us to show up with a painter, an electrician, and the âcuteâ carpenter. â Everything short of lights and a camera crew â because thatâs what theyâve seen on TV. But redesign is really much simpler than that,â Simoni explains. âItâs basically a skilled redesign professional working with the homeowner to determine the best usage of each room and arranging various elements to achieve that goal.â And while the process is amazingly quick and affordable, it can help homeowners solve a wide range of practical needs, providing attractive âgreenâ decorating with out spending the âGreenâ on new furniture!
Using Subtraction to Gain an Addition.
âYouâd be amazed how a little re-arranging can open a room,â says Simoni. Reducing clutter, moving furniture to improve floor traffic and focusing on the roomâs function can achieve wonders. âA spare room becomes an office. A dining room becomes a relaxing place were families want to meet. People start using rooms they completely avoided before. Let your house work for you and the needs of your special family.â
From No Room to Showroom.
Everyone wants that indescribable âWow!â factor. On TV, itâs the final reveal. In reality, itâs the magic moment when âsuddenly, everything works.ââ¢ Overgrown collections are regrouped for maximum impact. Prized family heirlooms move into the spotlight. And lesser pieces are highlighted in new and exciting ways. Redesign can add the perfect punch to one room or transform an entire house, making sure every nook and cranny is âdressedâ to impress for a formal open house or casual party event.
Closing the Sale.
Home sales are one area where a little redesign can lead to actual financial rewards.
âWhen a buyer walks into your home, they donât want to see you. They want to see themselves, living in your space. A redesigner can accomplish that by eliminating distractions and maximizing space to create a âmodel homeâ experience that enhances the appeal of your home.â According to GraceAnn the results can be dramatic, leading to more offers in a shorter period of time.
His, Hers & Ours: The Art of Merging Households.
Whether itâs a young couple starting out or two large families coming together, merging households can be a difficult challenge. In those situations, a redesigner can be invaluable, blending the photos, furniture and unique styles of multiple people to create a single household where everyone feels at home.
The Refresher of Home and Spirit.
Sometimes you donât need a reason. And thatâs where the true value of redesign pays off.
âWhen youâre just tired of waking up to the same stagnate rooms, a redesigner is your best bet for freshening up your home without a huge investment of time and resources,â according to GraceAnn Simoni, who says that most redesigners offer one-day makeovers that can give you a new look fast.
Simple. Easy. Done.
âThe important thing that people need to know is that redesign is affordable, practical and personal,â explains Simoni âIf you want a new way to do more with what you have, itâs the simplest way to get there.â Simoni believes, âevery homeowner no matter what their budget is entitled to a well decorated home.â This can be accomplished in one day using what is already there. Change not only refreshes the look of the home but also renews the spirit of the homeowner.â
