Staging 101: When less is more

March 1, 2016Uncategorized

Easy tips for staging your home

First and foremost let me be clear: I am not an interior designer, nor do I have any credentials that would lead anyone to believe that I should even be talking about interior design! To be honest, I have a chemical engineering degree from Michigan from back when we were using Fortran cards for computer programs AND Christmas decorations!

However, I have always had a passion for interior design. Lucky for me, I finally found a job where I can bring that passion to my chosen workplace. Staging our Meadowlark projects for home tours and photography shoots is where I have the most fun and where I get the most satisfaction. It is not rocket science by any stretch of the imagination, but it brings immediate results. There are very simple guidelines for staging – generally my mantra is “less is more” –  but I stumbled on an article on freshome.com today that I thought really articulated some great ideas on how to go about getting a home ready for resale. Even if you aren’t thinking about selling your home, these tips are great starting points to freshen up your current digs without breaking the bank.
