Saturday Home Staging Tip: Your Home Could Look Years Younger!

Saturday Home Staging Tip: Your Home Could Look Years Younger!

 

Generally speaking, home sellers use Home Staging to maximum the potential of their home. They want to highlight the best features of their home. What could be another benefit to staging? You could make your home look "years younger"! Take a look at this great example from Maureen Bray, a professional Home Stager in Portland, Oregon. Paint the walls, pull out the old carpet and replace some of the furniture and the home decor. What a difference!

Sometimes as a professional home stager in Portland Oregon, I come across homes that feel really dated and much older than their actual age.  This was the case with a mid-century home that we were hired to stage recently.  This home had a pending sale in just 3 days.

These "before" photos were taken a couple of years ago.  It's amazing how old and tired the house looked then because of how it was decorated by previous owners!

Here's the "old" look in the living room Before home staging by Room Solutions Staging

After removing the wall-to-wall blue carpeting to reveal beautiful hardwood floors, adding color to the sterile white walls, and adding furnishings that complement the home, doesn't this house look much younger and more appealing to potential buyers? www.RoomSolutions.com

Removing the heavy draperies brings more light into the room ... placing art above the fireplace defines it as a focal point; and let's remember the importance of not blocking the entryway with a big chair :-) "Staging that Sells Portland Homes"

By removing the carpeting, the wallpaper and the frilly curtains and updating the light fixture, this home now appeals to the hip buyer who wants to live in this trendy Portland neighborhood Room Solutions Staging ~ Staging that Sells Portland Homes
