Home Staging Tips and Advice

Staging an empty house

By Kerry Derwent-Robb

This means that the property is going up for sale and does not have anyone living in them. The current owners might have already moved or the sale may be the result of a death in the family.

Empty homes stay on the market longer, so staging an empty home can make a big difference in encouraging a faster sale.

Staging a empty home does not require the house to be filled. All that's required is to stage selected rooms, such as the lounge, the dining room and a bedroom to show the size and function of the space. I normally add accessories into the kitchen and bathroom to allow the flow of colour to continue.

I personally like to specialize in staging empty houses as it allows me to create a design on a blank canvas with my NextStage furniture and a choice of fabric covers. This also allows the flexibility of going traditional or modern.

I always analyse the rooms and determined how I want them to function and how furniture should be placed in the room.

Always make use of natural light. Area rugs are relatively inexpensive way to add accent colours and to help tie room designs together.

Remember that accessories and furniture create a scene and a mood ... mmm sounds like a romantic novel!
