Staging Not Just for Selling-It’s for Living Too
by Christy Sattar, PR and Marketing, Design2Sell Interiors
Staging is typically used to prepare a home for sale, but modern homeowners are turning to stagers to transform their current home into their dream home. The market is tough, and it isn’t as easy as it once was to sell a home. Many homeowners are turning to interior design and staging professionals to make their home new again instead of selling and “moving up” into a bigger home.
Don’t despair if you won’t be able to move out of your “starter home” as soon as you anticipated. Just because you don’t live in your dream home right now does not mean that you can’t make you current home your dream home—through staging and design.
Make the best of the home you have right now, and uncover the hidden potential in your home. A professional home stager can show you how to maximize your current living space and give your home a fresh look. Why would you wait until you are ready to sell to make the house a fabulous place to live with updated decor? Far too many homeowners are waiting to realize the design possibilities in their homes until they are ready to move into a new one. Home staging is about making the most of each space within a home, and it seems odd that so many wait to stage until it is time to put the “For Sale” sign in the front yard.
Staging is a marketing tool that causes potential home buyers to fall in love with a home and the lifestyle that it offers, but it can also cause current homeowners to fall back in love with their current home. Basic staging techniques such as clearing out clutter, applying a fresh coat of paint and dressing rooms in neutral but fashionable décor creates a environment that feels brand new.
Rekindle the romance with your home, and reinvent your space so that you can enjoy your home – now.
