Staging a one-bedroom condo is not as simple as one might expect–especially when this particular condo is advertised as being handicap accessible.
The bathroom is larger than other units in this complex for accessibility. The bathtub/shower combination (behind the door) has a fixed seat and sturdy grab bars. The toilet is higher and the vanity is a little lower.
What might fit into this niche? Perhaps the buyer might install floating shelves for decorative items, or even a bar.
The wine server fit into this space perfectly.
When staging, you need to consider space to maneuver a wheelchair and not block access to any exits–in this case, the patio door.
The furniture is on a smaller scale. It accommodates guests, yet is spacious for a person in a wheelchair to join the conversation.
There is plenty of floor space with no sharp corners to catch a walker, a cane, or a wheelchair.
I used a small nightstand so as not to interfere with needing to park something next to the bed. There is also more room to get into the closet.
This condo would be convenient for someone who needs a little help to be independent, whether due to mobility issues or not. The goal is to give prospective buyers a visual idea of how the property might work for you. By staging with the appropriate size and scale of furniture and accessories, someone will say, “this feels just right.” Call Premiere Home Stagers at 608-345-9396.
