Here, we split the couch up into two pieces giving the family room a more open feel. A small table between the two helps section off the living room from the dining space.  Lamps. Lamps are huge! They add light which every room needs. And if a room doesn't have much natural light, lamps and reset lighting can help brighten the room. Think light and airy, not dark and dungeon like!  Also notice all counter tops are cleared off. Decluttering counters makes such a difference. It allows for more room while working and gives the feel of organization. Organization = Peace !  Finally, simple live plants and florals are a great touch to any room. It doesn't have to be giant. As a matter of fact, we suggest a small plant or vase sitting on the dining table or at the kitchen sink window. Plants + florals add LIFE! If it dies though, please toss it. A dead plant does not help stage or sell a home! :)

STAGING

Whether you are buying, selling or wanting a fresh look in your home, staging furniture and accessories can do a world of good to the feel of your home.

The best rule of thumb to keep in mind is LESS IS MORE! Especially if you are putting your home on the market, the less clutter you have the more a potential buyer can see the possibilities for themselves. It may seem like your home looks somewhat vacant or not "lived in" but that is the whole point. You want buyers to see themselves living there, not the life you have built there. 

There are many other ideas to successfully staging a home that gives sellers a leg up while competing with other sellers in the market. If you would like a private consultation, contact us at info@uptownfarmhouse.com. We offer a wide range of services from a consultation with a suggested list of things to do before going on the market to decluttering and packing the house to staging a house just before it goes on the market. Or, perhaps you need someone with a good eye to freshen up your home. We have years of experience as sellers, buyers and home owners needing an update. And, we would love to help you!
