A dilemma for homeowners is deciding how much of the house should be staged. Of course, the more rooms that are staged, the more it costs. In order to save upfront costs, many homeowners decide to stage certain rooms and leave other rooms vacant. But which rooms should be staged?
Premiere Home Stagers recommends the impact rooms be staged. That generally means the main living room, dining room, and master bedroom. The other bedrooms are self-explanatory and are dependent upon the age of any children, or perhaps an office or guest room is needed.
In this example, both the formal living and dining rooms will be re-painted and then staged. They are the first rooms one would see when entering the front door.
The dinette and family room are also on the main level. Therefore, it makes sense to stage these rooms also.
Because the back porch is on the main level, directly behind the dinette, Premiere Home Stagers recommends staging this area. It’s not even fall yet, and this room would make an emotional connection at this time of year. The master bedroom is located on the second floor, along with the other two bedrooms. To save costs, Premiere Home Stagers suggested that this room need not be staged.
After cleaning and painting, Premiere Home Stagers will return to stage the main level rooms. Stay tuned.
