We love helping our clients sell their homes quickly. And we love helping buyers see how they can best live in the home they are purchasing.
However, many people think staging is just plopping some furniture and decor in a house, calling it done, and waiting for the offers to come in. We wish it were that easy!
One thing that we discover at almost every project is a tricky space, odd layout, or some other challenge that must be addressed. Clients expect their home stager to overcome these obstacles. And we should meet the challenge - it's our job. But that means that we have to have a solution (and inventory) for every circumstance, and that's not always a simple task.
This beautiful Mid-Century Modern home that we recently staged had a few of those challenges. Here's some before and afters with the results:
Large open living room with several focal points and no lighting built in.
Four lamps placed throughout the space add warmth and lighting. And we placed a swivel chair next to the fireplace so it could essentially function in either space depending on which way it faced, adding an extra seating area.
This step up nook in the living room had no obvious function. The challenge was making it useful and not just filling it with decor. It was a small space that we felt functioned best as a work space, but could only accommodate a desk smaller than average. Fortunately we had one in our inventory that fit perfectly.
This Dining Room had beautiful wood floors and paneling, but needed to be lightened up since it all felt like one tone. There was also an old curtain rod that needed to have a purpose. We don't like to keep existing hardware empty, but the challenge was making the existing hardware work without doing a custom treatment since that wasn't an option.
By adding a dark table and light chairs to contrast with all the wood in the room, the rooms gets more life. Green was the only other color that was added to this beautiful room. We also used small hooks to attach our curtain panels to all 46 of the existing curtain rings (hard to see in this photo), so the windows had a finished look and the rod served a purpose.
The next part of this blog will take a look at the kitchen and colorful bedrooms!
