Stagers always need to ‘think outside the box’ to create new ways of using furnishings that help us create the right look. For example during one of the Pres staging training classes we needed to create a guest bedroom downstairs. During my consultation I had recommended to the seller that they purchase 2 blow up beds – she felt she could use the beds for company when she moved. Like many home sellers, she had good intentions but ran out of time, money and energy. In this case she ran out of shopping time and so, we only had one blow up bed.
One of the things I love most about going into a seller’s home is to find what creative ways we can repurpose something to make it work for us. So my thinking was ‘okay we need to make this room into a bedroom – do we have any bins we can use to create a base? and something to put on top? I eventually ended up going into her garage a voila – 2 shower doors. Crazy idea but it worked!
Guest Bedroom not happening here…
A guest bedroom that needs to be staged.
A little creativity…
Hmm let’s try these shower doors!
And a great guest bedroom for showing!
Voila a nice looking guest bedroom!
Now a little ‘Please do not sit on the bed sign and this room is staged!’
