Did you know there are different levels of vacant home staging? Each property may have legitimate reasons for using one of these levels. For example, what I would call “Level I” staging is called “Vignette Staging.” This is where a stager would set up vignettes in each room, but very little to no furniture.
This staging might be done for a foreclosure, a short sale, or a tight budget. The vignettes help make an emotional connection and distract from any small imperfections.
Level II staging is putting in the furniture with the accessories and artwork.
A prospective buyer can determine the size and scale of the room more easily with furniture in it. The accessories are carefully selected and positioned to help people visualize themselves living here.
Level II staging is really more interior design than staging. This level of staging takes a property and imagines a particular home buyer based upon demographics and then fills the house with those items.
For this property, navy blue was the color scheme in every room, accentuated with greens and grays.
Just about every horizontal surface was filled with accessories. It looks stunning.
Home staging is about putting in just enough furniture, accessories, and artwork…plus a little more….so that people can visualize themselves living there. A home stager stages for the masses; an interior designer designs for a particular person. For example, perhaps some people don’t like navy blue. The fact that this color is in every room (even paint color) may not be what a particular homebuyer would like.
Regardless, you can pick the different levels of home staging that best appeals to you, your budget, and the demographics. In sought-after neighborhoods, perhaps a Level I Vignette staging is best. However, for the average demographic, Level II home staging is the most preferred. Call Premiere Home Stagers to help you choose the level of staging. 608-345-9396
