Isn't this the ultimate goal of the home stager, to have each room give a postive message?
As I was meditating on the various items that need to be addressed with a current property I am staging, I was going about the items room-by-room, beginning with the foyer. This is a $2M house where 2 brothers live - and the décor pretty much reflects that a couple bachelors live there. Oh while they do have some nice furnishings, the overall feel is, well, sparse.
In the foyer, there is basically nothing but a meager mat inside the front door.
Something needs to be in the foyer to build excitement and anticipation to want to see the rest of the house.
This brings me to my game...in the perfect scenario; every room would leave the prospective buyer with a positive thought/feeling/message.
Here's just a list of rooms I put together, including the curb appeal as well:
•1. Exterior of Entryway (curb appeal)
•3. Formal Dining Room
•5. Family/Great Room
•6. Powder Room
•7. Master Bedroom
•8. Master Bath
•9. Guest/Child's Bedroom
•10. Guest Bath
If any want to join in, I thought we could comprise a list of positive messages going room-by-room...I'll begin with the first 2...*a little cheesy, but you get the point*
•1. Exterior - "Welcome! Please come in. We were looking forward to having you."
•2. Foyer - "If you like what you see here, wait until you see the rest!"
•3. Formal Dining Room -
