This is one of the rooms in a Portland OR home we staged last week ... but the transformation is quite dramatic! Not only that, it was quick and easy, too ~ something anyone could do before putting your home on the market.
The main floor bedroom was being used by the sellers as a home office -- perfect use for the space. It was painted about 8 years ago when dark red was a very popular color. It was also overstuffed with furniture, making the space look much smaller than it really was.
Here's how the office looked BEFORE
We recommended a lighter paint color to brighten up the room, and removal of the existing furniture. We then staged it lightly, letting buyers see the function of this space as an office.
And here's how it looked AFTER
For a minimal investment, buyers don't have to "see past" a dark, cave-like room to imagine how they might use it. EASY!
