If you are preparing your home for sale and having a hard time with furniture placement, you can bet it will also be an issue for potential buyers. Buyers won't take the time to figure out a confusing layout so it's best if you resolve the problem prior to listing and present an attractive floor plan.
Consult with a staging professional for furniture placement that is appealing to buyers.
After years of living in their home, many sellers can't visualize their furniture any way other than how they have it. Most furniture is placed for comfort and convenience, based on the owners' needs. When selling, furniture placement must show space and the function of each room in order to appeal to buyers.
This is where a home staging consult can make all the difference.
Many times existing furnishings just need to be relocated. A couple years ago I did a consult which involved switching the furniture amongst three rooms. The area being used as a living room had two love seats and two chairs crowded into a small area. The area being used as a dining room was more spacious and not being used to its full potential.
The two red sofas were found crowded into a very small family room. Once again, too much furniture in too little a space. The sofas became more impressive and inviting when moved into the larger room.
LIVING/DINING BEFORE & AFTER:
The sellers were not willing to remove the flowered wallpaper around the windows,
but they did remove it from around the door in the front foyer and it made a huge difference.
