Staging FAQ’s-How Do I Stage the Bowling Alley Room?
We see these rooms a lot in Palm Beach County, especially in condos and townhomes. In fact, you don’t have to be selling a home to ask this question.
Whether you’re selling your home or want to redesign the long narrow room that you have, there are some easy tips that can show the liveability of the space.
When buyers walk into a vacant home, it’s relatively easy to see what to do with the standard living room or family room.
However, when they open the door and think they’ve walked into a bowling alley, this is when bringing in furniture and accessories helps.
Define the space
Often, the space is divided into two usable areas...a sitting area and a dining area. A large rug in the sitting area helps to define the space and anchor the sofa and chairs to the conversation area.
Our budget was limited and the owner would not allow us to put anything on the walls, but the property still sold quickly.
Keep furniture to scale
If the room is narrow and long, then you’ll want to choose pieces that work with scale of the room. Large, heavy pieces may eat up whatever space there is.
That said, it’s good to vary the height of the pieces, especially if the room has high ceilings.
Keep it unified
You’ll want to avoid lots of patterns and colors that make the room appear too busy.
Staging when you sell your home is all about allowing your potential buyers to see all of the possibilities of your home. Those narrow bowling rooms can leave them asking where they’ll place their furniture or what the space if for.
When you have it answered for them through the use of staging, it frees them up to see and to focus on the rest of the home.
