This week is a different (and also very common) living room staging challenge. This one is just plain blah and if you want to decorate this home to sell fast on the real estate market, it really needs added pizazz!
I normally have an excellent memory for rooms I’ve been in. But I honestly wouldn’t remember much after seeing this living room, especially if I was the typical home buyer visiting 6 or 8 properties in the same day with my real estate agent! One of the ways home stagers get buyers to fall in love with a home is by giving them something to remember and connect with. Now I’m not saying we have to go totally crazy with this living room and spend a few thousand dollars redecorating it. After all, few home staging clients would go along with such a plan.
Imagine that this is the view that awaits you when you arrive for your home staging consultation. What changes would you recommend for this room? Please add your ideas by hitting the comment button below. I’ll be posting my take on this room after giving you a chance to weigh in with your own creative comments. And don’t forget, if you haven’t tackled the busy living room you can still add your comments to that one too.
It will be interesting to see the contrasting ideas for these two very common problems for staging a living room!
