Home Lighting. One of the things that make staged homes look so warm and welcoming is great lighting. As it turns out, many of our homes are improperly lighted. To amplify the brightness in a room, check out STAGED’s lighting selection to lighten up the mood for every room.
DE- C L U T T ER. The most important thing you can do to prepare your home for sale is to get rid of clutter. Make a house rule that for every new item that comes in, an old one has to leave. One of the major contributors to a cluttered look is having too much furniture. STAGED suggests you pack up, move out, and rent furniture to stage your old home. This way, you are able to leave the stress of packing last minute pieces behind.
Color Correction. Don't feel the need to shy away from dark colors in fear of making a room appear smaller, a darker tone on the walls can make the space more intimate, dramatic and cozy. And you don't believe us, rent some dark statement pieces and you'll soon see the difference in ambiance.
Placement. It has been said that rooms will feel larger and be easier to use if all the furniture is pushed against the walls, but that isn't the case. Instead we advise everyone to furnish your space by floating furniture away from walls. Reposition sofas and chairs into cozy conversational groups, and place pieces so that the traffic flow in a room is obvious. This makes rooms look far more larger than they really are.
Rule of Three. Mixing the right accessories can make a room more inviting. When it comes to eye-pleasing props, odd numbers are preferable, especially three. Avoid placing accents in a straight line, group accessories together like a triangle to create dimension. This creates your eye to wonder around from piece to piece!
Room Transformations. Are you moving to downsize because your old home had too many rooms than you knew what to deal with? We suggest, rooms that serves only to gather junk should be repurposed it into a room that will add to the value of your home. The simple addition of the Yellow Barrel Chair and Ottoman and White E-Bookcase in a small nook will transform it into a cozy reading spot!
