GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) — Staging for life is really all about honestly evaluating the things you already own and a space as it is and rearranging for better results. There should be very little need to purchase much if anything to re-stage your space. Sometimes a small investment can make a huge impact. There are some little pieces that can make a huge difference.
A high impact accessory like an area rug (yes even on carpet) or a large piece of wall art will make a hug difference in your space.
Occasional pieces. When was the last time you have updated your end tables and coffee table? Occasional pieces are the perfect candidate for simple upgrades! A new coat of paint or new hardware can work wonders.
Accent chairs. Did you get a tan sofa, loveseat, and chair for your seating, thinking you would add color accessories and never got around to adding the color? An accent chair in a fun fabric is a low coast way of adding color and pattern to many different rooms! Consider it for a lonely corner in bedroom of office in addition to living rooms and family rooms. Lighting is something that is easily overlooked. Consider adding an interesting lamp to a gloomy corner.
Staging for life is about realizing how special your space and your things truly are. It is not about removing personality for a home to be sold, but all about allowing a space to reflect not only the best of itself but the best of its owners as well.
