Yesterday Synergy Staging staged a beautiful home in Laurelhurst. This charming property is on a gorgeous street in a highly desirable Portland, Oregon neighborhood.
When staging most houses, certain rooms tend to present unique challenges due to either layout, color, architecture, or style. As a result, and to ensure our clients end up with the best results, we often bring several furnishing options to each staging project. As much prep work as you do off site, there is nothing quite like working with the furnishings in the actual space.
In this house we had several different staging plans for the spacious 2nd level master suite. This room had an area for the bed, a small nook, a row of built in seating under the windows and a large walk in closet. There was quite a bit of space in the middle of the room so we had several options to consider. We ended up staging a sitting area instead of the typical dresser and mirror scenario. This arrangement uses the space between the bed area and the window seating, making the room feel interesting and cozy, at the same time showing a potential buyer how they might utilize the space.
We staged the nook opposite the sitting area with a desk and chair. Although we had measured the space, it was possible that the furniture would look too cramped. In that case we would have moved the sitting area to this nook. The desk ended up working well in the nook and the sitting area now draws potential buyers focus to the lovely window views.
It turned out that our original plan worked, but we had several different chair options as well as a dresser in case the desk didn't feel right. This also impacted the amount of decor and art we brought based on the ultimate staging solution.
So do you bring one plan - hoping all goes well - or options that allow you design the space just right? While it takes more time, additional loading and unloading, the end results make it worth it for our clients.
