Although our Portland home staging company typically stages the impact rooms in a vacant home (living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom, and bathrooms), sometimes a house needs more help. There are few things less inviting than MLS photos of empty bedrooms where all you can see are a few bare walls and the floor. There is just no way for potential buyers to connect to the space and want to see it in person. And without a showing, there is no possible way an offer will be made.
Synergy Staging recently staged a contemporary home in the hills of Portland that had a unique layout with 3 smaller bedrooms, a guest suite, and a master suite with sitting room. The challenge for buyers was trying to envision how to use all the spaces and live in this 3 story home with great views of the hills and city.
Here is how we staged the bedrooms:
This guest suite has an attached bath and fireplace. When vacant, it was hard to imagine where the bed would be located, and that this could be an inviting room. Once staged, buyers want to invite guests to stay in this room.
This very small bedroom would have buyers believe that it would not fit their bed. In fact a full size bed and dresser easily fit and there were no more questions. One of the key factors that staging provides is to eliminate the reasons NOT to buy a property.
When staging this many bedrooms in a house, you must be careful not to make every room look the same. Helping buyers see the potential in each room gives the house more value. Here we staged a large chaise (facing a built in entertainment center) and also a work space. The pop of green makes the space interesting, yet doesn't overwhelm the purpose of the room.
This room was staged as an office which is how many in the target demographic will want to use this space.
Outside the master bedroom was this room in a vibrant shade of red. Since the room wasn't going to be painted, we had to make this space work. With so much room in the rest of the house, making this feel like a lounge where you could hang out before going to bed was important. There is a wet bar next to where the photo was taken from. In order to brighten the room, a white rug and light accents were used.
The master bedroom has an incredible view and feels like a retreat. A stark room with tile isn't the most inviting, so it was important to bring in a rug to soften the floor, and use light tones to create a serene feel that buyers would instantly connect with.
In a future blog we'll share the living spaces in the rest of the house.
