Staging a Small Space

Home Stager with Design2Sell

Do you want to make your home stand apart from the rest? Staging your home with Design2Sell is the best way to stick out in a buyers mind and make for a quick sale. Trying to sell a vacant home can be difficult because there is nothing to separate your home from the many others that prospective home buyers have seen.

Sometimes an obstacle of staging a home is knowing what to do with a small space. When a prospective buyer enters the room you want them to see all of its possiblities. At 1222 Kingsley in Atlanta, Design2Sell staged this home in a way that maximizes the space.

Before expert designer Barbara Heil-Sonneck went to work on the re-design, a prospective buyer may have had difficulty envisioning their selves relaxing in these small spaces after a long day’s work. Maximizing the feel of the space is a must to get this home sold quickly. After her redesign, the space looks larger and more inviting.

Here are some ways to make your small space appear large and inviting:

Utilize natural light. 

  • Barbara used window treatments that allow the sunlight to fill the room.
  • Be sure not to block the light with furniture.

Use Neutral Colors

  • A monochromatic color scheme was used for this room.
  • Barbara added a pop of color to help the eye move throughout the room and make it interesting.
Limit Accessories
  • Be sure not to over accessorize. The design scheme for this room only used one painting, one lamp, and one accent piece. 
  • Barbara selected furniture that is nuetral and not too large for  the room.

Barbara- you certainly took a room that many buyers would wonder what to do with to one that looks inviting!  Great job as always.

Barbara--love what you did with that little porch area.  You are so right that buyers would have a hard time imaging what to do with that space.  Nice work.
