A Teaspoon of Staging for a Family Room

The hub of this family's life is the family room.  I had to take that into consideration for staging.  My attempt was to make it appeal to the buyer and function of this young family.

The fireplace is the primary architectural feature of the room.  I geared the staging to emphasize the windows and fireplace. Below you will notice they had no art, lamps, or coffee table. I'm not a big fan of throws.  However, I did place a throw over the sofa arm to disguise the handle for the recliner.

The owners were very pleased with the transformation and it photographed well for MLS.

  2. Great job. I found your blog when I was looking for more information on home staging after seeing what a stager did for my sister's house when she was selling. I love the posts in which you show us the magic you perform.

    1. So happy to have you as a reader Adele. I always appreciate your input. It is gratifying when it all comes together--it does feel like magic! It's the best when the house sells as quickly as this one did.

  3. What a difference your staging made. The room actually looks bigger now that there's more in it. Very pretty!

    1. Thanks Brooke, I was trying to make the room look as large as possible. That back area was completely wasted space.

  5. So pretty! Love how you put focus on the fireplace. The chairs on either side are great, and the pretty trim work over the mantel was screaming for a focal point!
