I thought it would be fun to show you some of the "before & after" photos. Here is our family room before staging...
And after. The stagers removed all wall coverings and even window screens to maximize natural light. They replaced my patterned rug with a simple sisal one and accessorized using a combination of my things and theirs. We helped by cleaning, touching up paint, decluttering, and removing personal items like family photos.
Here is the living room before...
And finally our master bath. (What was I thinking when I painted it red???)
- Keep it simple - Eliminate clutter; less is more.
- Consider lighting - both day & night
- Use a few big (really big) accessories rather than lots of small ones
- Take risks - go ahead and try that antique spool cabinet next to a Crate & Barrel chair
