Home Staging Ideas to Sweep Buyers off their Feet
Never Leave a Room Vacant
Home buyers do not come to see the walls but they come to see the place and imagine their lifestyle there. Therefore, your place must not just look attractive but welcoming and full of life as well. You may think of emptying the space and remove all the furniture but home stagers think differently as emptiness can make rooms look dull, boring and lifeless. Professional home stagers manipulate your visual perception of a room using the right kind of furniture. Staging home with right furniture helps potential buyers establishing the home's actual size and helps them visualizing how they can arrange their own furniture.
Buy Stylish Furniture
Before buying a piece of furniture, think about furniture usability. You must select furniture that suit your lifestyle and consider for how long you plan to keep that particular piece. Moreover, when it comes to home staging, you need to decide where to place which kind of furniture. For instance, placing a large piece of furniture on either side of an entryway or near door makes a room look small, while placing such pieces farther back in the room near walls make rooms appear bigger and attractive.
Don't underestimate the value of right rug
When it comes to making your room attractive, the most important item besides furniture and decorative items is a rug. We all know how the right floor covering can tie a room together. And in every living room, the rug is the most valuable item so it should be the first thing you consider when planning home staging or even designing the layout of your room. If you are planning to shop for rugs, remember: A too-small rug can make a room look smaller. You must remember another rule of thumb: The front two legs of each piece of furniture should be on the rug. If they miss the rug - even by an inch - your rug is too small.
