My 5th installment of STAGING TIP OF THE DAY covers repurposing and accessorizing spaces. Put a shine on your homes strengths while downplaying it’s weaknesses:
- Repurpose. Just because you’ve used that space in a stairwell nook as storage for the past several years doesn’t mean everyone else will. Remove the junk and add a small armchair, a table and a lamp – instantly the nook is now a cozy spot to read.
- Accessorize. You aren’t selling your nick-nacks, but these little vignettes will help make the room more appealing and inviting. The eye is most pleased by odd numbers, preferably 3. Don’t make an assembly line of 3 items, group them in a triangle shape, carefuly considering the scale of each item. Don’t forget the dining table – often bare and the focal point of a room, add some appeal with place settings or an interesting arrangement in the middle.
