VACANT HOME STAGING | TEENY TINY SE BUNGALOW

This charming Woodstock home that was built in the 1920s was such an incredible project for our team to be a part of! For this home staging, we used a traditional but vintage industrial mix to capture the essence of the quaint S.E. neighborhood, while also staying relevant with today’s trends. Our goal was to accomplish a style that complimented the architectural elements throughout.This S.E. Bungalow was a smaller scaled house, so our main goal was to display the possibilities of the home to all potential buyers, despite the size.

There was so much we could do with it! We achieved our goal by presenting the house with neutral colors and decluttered spaces to create a larger look, and also a nice new paint job. We worked to create a space that showcased the home’s vintage assets, such as the original trim. This staging project was a huge success!

LIVING ROOM

GOALS: 

 Bring the space back to life by bringing in a fresh coat of paint in order to brighten up the space and make it feel larger in scale and appeal to the most amount of prospective buyers.

Immediately walking in, we are greeted with the living room. Because this room is on the smaller side, our goal was to maximize the space to the best of our abilities through the furniture and decor we chose. We kept the space looking light and spacious with the traditional oatmeal sofa and accent chair, while adding in fun texture and contrast through the throw pillows, as well as the woven rug. Placing the sofa against the left wall was the most ideal spot for this room. Because it is directly at the entry of the home, we wanted to create a space that was functional but felt organic when entering. To the right, we placed a media console to help potential buyers visualize a family living room. In addition, the use of the espresso coffee table tied in the darker tones that we used in our throw pillows to create a contrast for the room. We used a fun centerpiece tray to create balance in the room, and added in the details to give the room a little personality!

DINING ROOM

GOALS: 

To incorporate new lighting and update paint to keep the room inviting for potential buyers to visualize a space for entertainment.

After walking through the living room entry of the house, a spacious dining room appears. To keep our traditional/industrial style, we used slipcover chairs to compliment the textured runner and brighten things up, and to keep things neutral. In these home stagings, keeping everything neutral is important to apply to the most amount of prospective buyers.The industrial twist makes it's remarkable appearance in this room through the use of the dark iron chairs and wall art. However, the goal is to keep a balance between the industrial twist and the overall light and bright traditional look. To create this specific balance, we added the greenery in the centerpiece, as well as the sconces on the wall.

KITCHEN

GOALS: 

To give the outdated kitchen a fresh new look.

For the kitchen, we highlighted the featured space by adding accessories, as well as calling attention to the fresh Sherwin Williams agreeable grey paint. Adding the greenery and kitchen countertop accessories can assist in the visualization of a home feel for the potential buyers.Because the dining nook was such a small space, we used a small sized table to display the function, but also kept the space sweet and decluttered.

MASTER BEDROOM

GOALS: 

To create a floor plan to maximize the large space's potential.

Through the hall, directly to the right we are greeted by the spacious master bedroom. Anybody who really enjoys a spacious bedroom and spends a lot of time in there would find appeal to this house! Our goal was to showcase the room's possibilities for all perspective buyers.For this bedroom, we used a king bed to fill the space, and to also show how roomy this bedroom actually is. We were able to incorporate a complete furniture set, along with a charming conversation area with accent chairs in front of a beautiful window that allowed the room to shine with natural light. This room really has it all!The neutral palate of the master bedroom was complemented by the style of the bedding and throw pillows. Our goal was to keep this look without overpowering the space with neutral colors. Mission accomplished! The throw pillows and art on the wall successfully tied the whole room together!

THE OFFICE

GOALS: 

To showcase the room as a home office to display plenty of room for a workspace.

Because this room was small, we decided to go with a home office. However, potential buyers could visualize this room as a kids bedroom because of the built-ins, which could be used as a closet! Overall, this room was very versatile considering the size of the space!We displayed a floating desk in the center of the room to utilize the space for other pieces, such as the industrial shelves. These shelves were used to compliment the overall feel of the house, while also adding details through the use of the way we accessorized it! The slip cover chair we used for the floating desk was successful in softening up the space!
