Home staging to the rescue! Just imagine how hard it would have been for buyers to keep their minds on this kitchen if the owner had not wisely had Gloria Home Staging take it in hand. It was fascinating! Diverting! Unforgettable!
The first object that demanded a viewer’s attention was the large dog biscuit container on the counter. (Saying more would not be tactful.) Sharing the counter was a unique wooden moose with a small straw bale at one end, and a little pail at the other. Raise its tail, and a raisinette falls into the pail. (Very classy) The counter had attractive glass-fronted drawers, which were partially full of candy and bags of chips, among other things. On the walls were many metal plaques, ranging from antique product ads to witty sayings. Viewers noticed as afterthoughts features like the huge refrigerator, double oven, and lowered granite corner of the counter. Something had to be done!
Needless to say, we retired the biscuit container and the moose. We took down all the plaques, including the one that said, “In this house, dog hair is a condiment.” (Eeewww!) We also filled the drawer fronts with pasta, rice, and dried beans, and cleared as much as possible off the back counters.
It made a world of difference. Now buyers will remember this kitchen for the right reasons. (Though they won’t have funny stories to tell about “what I saw in the house I looked at today.”)
If you are selling a home in the Orlando area, Gloria Home Staging can help buyers remember it, too. Give us a call – we’ll be pleased to help!
