Staging a Small Space

Staging a Small Space

May 12, 2011 | Barbara's Blog

Do you want to make your home stand apart from the rest? Staging your home with Design2Sell is the best way to stick out in a buyers mind and make for a quick sale. Trying to sell a vacant home can be difficult because there is nothing to separate your home from the many others that prospective home buyers have seen.

Sometimes an obstacle of staging a home is knowing what to do with a small space. When a prospective buyer enters the room you want them to see all of its possiblities. At 1222 Kingsley in Atlanta, Design2Sell staged this home in a way that maximizes the space.

Before expert designer Barbara Heil-Sonneck went to work on the re-design, a prospective buyer may have had difficulty envisioning their selves relaxing in these small spaces after a long day’s work. Maximizing the feel of the space is a must to get this home sold quickly. After her redesign, the space looks larger and more inviting.

Here are some ways to make your small space appear large and inviting:

Utilize natural light. 

    • Barbara used window treatments that allow the sunlight to fill the room.
    • Be sure not to block the light with furniture.

    Use Neutral Colors

    • A monochromatic color scheme was used for this room.
    • Barbara added a pop of color to help the eye move throughout the room and make it interesting.
    Limit Accessories
    • Be sure not to over accessorize. The design scheme for this room only used one painting, one lamp, and one accent piece. 
    • Barbara selected furniture that is nuetral and not too large for  the room.
