There are so many unique homes in the Portland area, and we always look forward to the opportunity to stage these properties. This completely remodeled Craftsman is one of those properties that we fell in love with even before we staged it.
The small scale and layout of the rooms presented several challenges that you can see below. The living room has a small bedroom immediately off of it. The room also has a door that leads to a hall between the kitchen and bathroom. When it was empty the room felt like nothing more than an unusable pass through. By staging it as a guest room with a lounger to keep it more casual off the living room, the space was immediately defined and had a purpose.
The dining room was very small so we used a glass table to keep the space open. In order to keep a nice flow to the kitchen we had to center the table in the space instead of under the chandelier. We staged the table with a low bowl instead of a larger centerpiece which would have drawn attention to fact that the table was not centered beneath the chandelier.
We also staged the downstairs Master Suite which requires a walk through the laundry room and furnace area. It felt like a carpeted basement that had no warmth or connection to the rest of the home. The staging shows how cozy and inviting the room can be.
