Don’t save the new furniture for the move use it for staging now!

Don’t save the new furniture for the move use it for staging now!

November 29, 2011 By Pres Ⓡ Staging Resource Centre

In the last Pres home staging & redesign training course we staged a townhouse that was using their futon in their main living room area. During the consultation I asked if they had any other furniture that I could use and the home seller said they had their new brown leather sofa and ottoman in the garage ready for their move. I asked to look at it and well…the rest is history. It was the perfect piece of furniture for the living room and the futon worked beautifully downstairs in the less formal family room.

This was a junk room filled with plastic containers, paint cans, tarps, etc. We did some ‘out-of-the-box thinking’ and used the plastic containers along with a bookcase to make a bed! We turned this junk room into a guest bedroom with a nautical theme. The headboard is a cushion from a summer bench we didn't need to use!           Junk Room turned into a Guest Bedroom

The home sellers were delighted with the changes and this is what they had to say:
“When I walked in the door I felt like walking into a designer show home. It was all my furniture, yet it all looked brand new to me!

The living room and children’s bedroom were absolute genius. The creativity and ingenuity in using items from my own home were absolutely amazing. My husband and I are completely impressed with the work done in our home. I am certain that our house will have no problem generating interest when going on the market.

Your students have definitely earned their A+’s! ”
