The Staging Tips Series: Part II

Staging Tip:

Whether your Staging for selling or Staging for living ~ this one is helpful!

Don't place all your furniture around the perimeter of the room. It's NOT the best way to show off your square footage. It visually makes the room seem smaller and hides architectural details like interesting moldings (you want these to stand out).

Angling furniture or creating intimate conversation areas is much more effective. If your upholstered pieces are shabby - then add some chic! Big box discount stores sell attractive slipcovers (choose a neutral SOLID color) that won't break the bank.

Lastly, when setting up your "new" room, avoid the Titanic-effect = meaning all the heavy pieces are on one side of the room. Distribute the weight so your space won't look like a sinking ship!!
