Modern Staged Kitchen in Seattle, Washington


"Kathryn has always done an incredible job staging my client's homes for sale. I've seen her perform miracles with very little turn-around time. The results: fast sale for top dollar. Her attitude is always about making the best impact, and she understands the tight time frames we often find ourselves dealing with. I am always so impressed with her work that I have asked if she can come design my home!"

"Kathryn is very professional at what she does. I can tell that she loves what she does too. She staged my Tacoma house and we sold it the very 1st day it was on the market and with above asking price. Kathryn color coordinated everything. She made my small house look bigger and beautiful. I will be using her in the future and I will also be recommending her to anyone who asks about staging."

"Love, love, love what Kathryn has done for my real estate business. I started using her about a year ago. Everything she does is well thought out and coordinated. My homes show beautifully when she and her team are finished. She has made my clients so much more money than they will ever know or truly appreciate. Most people take staging for granted and think it is just the norm. It is much more than that with Kathryn. She elevates every one of my listings."

"Working with First Staging + Design was a pleasure from start to finish. The value we received in having our home professionally staged can be summed up in one word “Sold”! Kathryn and team provided guidance from start to finish on what was needed for the home to show well, and we were truly impressed with the service they provided, along with their partnership to our agents team. The movers were courteous, and the designers knew what they were doing to make our house stand out."

“Working with Kathryn and First Impressions is a wonderful experience. She and her team are incredibly professional and responsive. I was in great need of reworking of existing models, as well as fully new staging. It’s incredibly impressive what Kathryn put together. The models she designed consistently received compliments to our leasing staff from prospective tenants. I am excited to have an opportunity to continue working with Kathryn and First Impressions. The design sense and working experience you will receive are impeccable.”

"Kathryn Lenhardt worked with me on preparing my home to be sold. She does that through staging a home to look it's very best and give prospective buyers a sense of what it might look like with their furniture. I was so happy to work with Kathryn! She was highly recommended by my real estate agent and she is a dream to work with! And so much fun too! We met first so she could get an idea of my total project. She took pictures of each room to aid her in the design, color scheme and furniture, plus accessories. She gave me ideas for colors for paint, carpeting and lighting fixtures, as I was updating those items. Kathryn kept me informed of what to expect and the schedule for implementation. Her crew was fabulous too. Everything was done smoothly, professionally and on time. Everyone who went through the house - prospective buyers, real estate agents, family, friends and neighbors - were blown away with the final product - a gorgeous home! My home sold very quickly. I couldn't be happier! I would not hesitate to work with Kathryn Lenhardt for any staging needs in the future."

"Making the decision to work with First Impressions Staging and Design was one of the best decisions I made when I was selling my home. Kathryn and her team were a joy to work with and their staging was tailored made to my needs. 


Words cannot express how pleased I was with the finished product. The staging was absolutely gorgeous and highlighted the home’s features beautifully. When I first walked into the home after the staging was completed, I felt like I was on an episode of, “Love It Or List It” and I LOVED IT!  


I highly recommend Kathryn of First Impressions Staging and Design. She is professional, easy to work with and extremely talented. Her staging received many positive comments and her expertise was on full display. Thanks again Kathryn for doing such a great job!"

This is my first time working with Kathryn and I am already looking for more opportunities to continue working with her. She is very detail oriented and her work absolutely makes a house feel like a home to every prospective buyers. I visited the house after Kathryn staged it, and the moment I walked in, my eye sparkled with a "wow." From what I heard from my agent, not a single person left the open house without giving a positive comment about the staging and how amazing it looked. I am so happy to have found Kathryn, who really enjoys and is passionate about her work and who doesn't mind spending the time getting to know each individual she works with. Kathryn's pricing is VERY reasonable with the quality of work you're getting from her. I would highly recommend anyone to Kathryn with confidence.

"Kathryn with First Impressions is hands down the best stager I have ever worked with. She has a phenomenal eye and is an absolute pleasure to work with. Kathryn also offers consultations, which are highly valuable. She can come into an occupied home and help the seller de-clutter, rearrange (if necessary) and perhaps add a few touches. The result look like the home has been professionally staged but with the seller’s own belongings. Any time people come into houses that she has staged or consulted on, the comments are always glowing and people say that the houses “look better than any model home they’ve ever seen." And that is high praise as I list a lot of homes in a planned development with gorgeous model homes. I wouldn’t list a home without Kathryn’s assistance either through a full stage or without a seller consultation!"

Staging was fantastic, helped us get top dollar when selling our home. And great advice on a few little changes that we changed to maximize our ROI. Thank you!

Kathryn and her team were EXCELLENT. 5 stars ALL around.

They were communicative, attentive, supportive, and made my seller’s property shine like never before. They are experts in their field and will transform your space into a caliber of staging that will allow any curious buyer to think of themselves living well in that home.

Highly recommend and I will always return to Kathryn and her team!
