Design and Home Staging Tip

As a Realtor or home owner, when listing a home for sale in a market that is already saturated with inventory, it is a very good idea to have an edge on your competition. Pricing your home competitively will always be the #1 factor in attracting motivated and qualified buyers but you also want to make a good impression when you finally do have a showing. This is where staging your home can really help pull it all together. It really does help to consult with an expert who can give you tips and a game plan for setting up your home to accentuate its best qualities.

How to Create a Themed Room

Grand Rapids Home StagingOften, I am asked how to create a space with a cohesive theme. Many times themed rooms are over done with too many accessories and explosions of color. Keeping it simple will tastefully illustrate the theme of the room.
For example; “the cottage theme room” can be pulled together by choosing three main colors, like; pale yellow, light blue and white. Repeat the established colors in the space three to five times. More than five splashes of color will create confusion and chaos to the eye. The colors can be introduced through window treatments, pictures, pillows, rugs, or accessories.
When choosing accessories for “the cottage theme”, follow the same rule as choosing colors; repeat no more than five times in the space. For example; your favorite collection of seashells and lighthouses can be displayed on a side table, in a picture, on a pillow, or on furniture fabric.
Whatever the selected color pallet or themed item; keep the number of three to no more than five. This design tip will create a well designed themed space that will WOW your guests and provide you with a cozy and relaxing living space.
