Staging a Goliath House for Zombie House Flipping (S2 E13)
MHM Professional Staging is proud to be part of the A&E show, Zombie House Flipping, filmed right here in Orlando, Florida. On Zombie House Flipping season two episode thirteen, the Zombie team took on a Goliath-sized home located in the pleasant neighborhood of Delaney Park. This large home presented many challenges. In the beginning, the team was not entirely convinced that the home was worth its original $525,000 asking price. However, after overcoming obstacles with a little strategic thinking, this zombie proved to be worth the trouble.
About the Zombie House
One of the biggest challenges of the home was that the floorplan was very closed off. It had various floor and ceiling heights throughout. In addition, there were at least five different floorings visible from one vantage point. Yikes! Since it was such a large house that needed a lot of work, it would be very costly and take much longer than usual to flip. But there was one detail that got everyone on the same page.
The Goliath house was considered one part of two lots. The left side of the lot contained most of the house, while the right side contained a three-car garage and pool. Ultimately, the team decided to demolish the three-car garage and sell the second lot with the pool. Fortunately, they were able to sell that lot quickly. With the profit from that lot and the help of our MHM Professional Staging team, the Zombie crew was able to set a new record for the highest return on investment.
Staging the Home
Our team enjoyed staging this large Delaney Park home for Zombie House Flipping season two episode thirteen. The crew did an excellent job turning the inside of the home into a more open floor plan. They evened out the flooring and made sure it was cohesive throughout the entire home. They also did a wonderful job choosing paint colors and fixtures, providing us a great canvas to work with.
In the Formal Living Room
In the living room, we chose blue and white to match the creamy neutral walls. The sofas make the space feel more inviting and bring out the colors in the artwork. The sofas are positioned across from each other, creating a conversational and social atmosphere. The seating design is trendy with its geometric shapes and gives the room character. Of course, we had to add greenery to complete the look.
In the Eat-In Kitchen
In the kitchen, we used Parsons dining chairs that complement the gray cabinetry. We chose more subtle artwork so it wouldn’t compete with the visible granite piece in the hallway. To help buyers envision themselves living in the home, we set the table and added a finishing touch of vases, flowers, and greenery.
In the Family Room
This home has quite a few places for sitting and socializing. We chose neutral-colored furniture for this living area with a light-colored rug to contrast with the floor. The dark piece of artwork on the wall adds great contrast as well.
In the Formal Dining Room
The multiple French doors throughout this house were one of its best features. Prior to the renovation, they weren’t functional, but now they are. I love how they let in ample natural light. To keep the formal dining room bright, we chose comfortable white chairs in a creamy white. We decided a rectangular dining table fit the space perfectly, and the dark wood adds a wonderful contrast. We also brought attention to the built-in shelf by placing a few accent pieces on it.
In the Master Bedroom
For the bedroom, we chose a lavender, yellow, and gray color palette to contrast with the dark floors and create a soothing atmosphere. The patterned rug adds character while the velvet bench adds texture. We used pretty glass vases as accents and nature-inspired artwork to create a relaxing space perfect for a bedroom.
In the Master Bathroom
There wasn’t much left to do in this stunning master bathroom. We are in love with all the fixtures from the marble to the brick. We especially love the translucent mirrors. All we had to do is add soap dispensers, a decorative bottle, and a plant to finish it off.
