Home Staging is Dressing a House for Success
Home staging is all about illusions. It’s beyond decorating and cleaning. It’s about perfecting the art of creating moods. Staging makes your house look bigger, brighter, cleaner, warmer, more loving, and best of all, it makes home buyers want to buy it.
Contrary to what most people think, it’s about more than preparing the house for sale. Staging is what you do after you’ve cleaned, decluttered, painted, made minor repairs; it’s all about dressing the house for sale. It’s about adding the small details that set your home apart from the rest.
Over the years, I’ve seen home staging pay off big time for many of my clients. You can do large scale home staging or small scale, but the important thing is you really should engage some aspect of home staging to sell your home for top dollar and quickly!
Professional stagers are highly skilled artists. We can take a blank canvas and paint a sensuous portrait without ever lifting a paintbrush. Stagers possess the skills of a top-level designer and they create dramatic scenery that appeals to all five senses. Here are some of our secrets:
- Arrange sparse pieces of furniture in an appealing grouping known as a vignette
- Showcase a generous usage of soft fabrics such as silk, lambswool, satin
- Display unusual knickknacks in units of 1, 3, or 5
- Drape window coverings with simple lines
- Add unique elements to shelving, bookcases and fireplace mantels, which draw attention to predetermined areas
Bringing the outdoors inside through the use of greenery and plants is one way to add warmth and life to spaces. Another tip is to work to create clean, crisp spaces and arranging furniture with plenty of room to walk around. Let me show you how the right staging can get your home sold for the right price!
