Our Portland home staging company recently staged a large home (over 6,000 sq ft) to make it more appealing to potential buyers.  When buyers walk into a big, empty house it's hard for them to see themselves living there, and large spaces can be confusing.  Their questions usually include "What's the purpose of this room?" and "How will we place furniture in this space?"

In the previous online photos, the house looked OK, but nothing grabbed your attention.  Take a look:

Love your work!  I bet this house will sell quickly...it shows so well!  Did you rent all that furniture or do you have your own inventory?

Hi Cathy ~ Thanks!  It's a blend of both; usually I prefer to rent the large pieces like sofas, dining sets and beds ... and the rest of the staging items come from my inventory.

Hi Joanna ~ It was a challenging project because the rooms are so large ... but color definitely helped add some warmth.  How is your kitchen coming along?

Good morning again Maureen -

Dropping back by once again to say hi and thanks for all your support in the Rain.  I re-checked the post and photo's out.  That plum carpet would have turned me off but you pulled it together with the nice soft cream furnishings.

Hope you enjoy an outstanding weekend in all you do.

Hi Debbie ~ Very large rooms indeed!  The dining room alone could easily hold 50 people :-)

Hi Valerie ~ Showing the function of the main rooms is what the budget allowed for ...  and helps buyers get a better idea of how living there would feel.

Hi John ~ Thanks for the reblog and for your support here as well!  Hope you have a great and productive weekend!

Maureen, another great staging job.  I agree, big and empty can look cavernous and cold.  Your terrific staging elicits an emotional response from prospective purchasers that compels them to buy.

Hi Lloyd ~ Your kind words and support of home staging is much appreciated.  There's no question that staging gives buyers a much more inviting experience when viewing a home, compared to when it's vacant, cold, and boring.
