Here Are 4 Fabulous Home Staging Tips
Center the Table
In most cases, the Formal Dining Room will have some type of chandelier or low-hanging light fixture. This light is typically used as an anchor to center the formal dining table so the room looks symmetrical and feels spacious. Center statement pieces of Art with the table as well.
Use White or Cream Florals
Flowers add a natural accent to any home. Use orchids, tulips, hydrangea or lillies to freshen up and accentuate the Dining Table centerpiece. If using fresh flowers, be sure to keep them looking healthy, otherwise invest some artificial flowers which require no maintenance and brighten up your display.
Display Pops of White in a Glass Hutch
Remove collections of glassware and antique china and replace with white pots, plates, bowls, or other accessories. Another option is to remove the upper hutch portion and use the lower piece to create a buffet. Add a mirror or artwork above the buffet to create an open feel.
Use the Proper Light Bulbs
Proper lighting is essential in Home Staging. The right lighting makes online pictures of your home stand out and shine. In person, the lighting in your home has a real impact on how people view the property. We recommend using 75 watt bulbs in most ceiling lights and fixtures. Replace dimming bulbs with fresh ones when it comes time to show.
