Interior redesign can make all of the difference in the way you use your home and if you are going to sell, by staging your space, if your home sells or not.
Buyers cannot always visualize a space and but changing simple things like removing clutter, placing furniture so more of the room is seen and the flow of the room makes sense.
When I stage homes on the market for sale, I make sure the rooms seem both cozy, and open.
The thing to consider when you look at your furniture placement is :Does it have flow? Does it make sense? And most importantly does it have balance?
And it doesn’t cost a lot of money either, In many of the interior redesigns I do, I use what people already have.
My friend has this wonderful dining set that is a family heirloom. We “shopped” her house a bit and found some great things to use. She has a wonderful eye for Arts and Crafts, and we found some other lovely treasures she had hidden away like pictures and a flea market mirror.
In the before picture, everything seemed slightly hodge-podge and had no sense of balance.
We brought in a set of matching lamps from another room, a mirror from the basement, than cleaned up some of the clutter on the buffett.
Before the living room seemed dark and nothing really felt dynamic or cozy. With the central stairs and open room entry way, you also really lose two walls.
We made use of the stair wall for the couch, and put the chairs across slightly angled to make a cozier conversation arc. It was also perfect to pull the chairs away from the windows so the draped could be opened and closed, and the heat vents on the flooring weren’t covered. We hing a piece of art on each side of the window to make it seem lightly bigger and give it a bit more presence.
Buyers can have a really hard time visualizing a space if a room is too cluttered, or if things seem jumbled. Sometimes a good interior re-designer or home stager can make all of the difference. It helps buyers actually see themselves in the space. Buyer should be concerned about whether or not the roof is good or if the furnace works, but many times the flow stops them in their tracks. There is one other item that having your rooms redesigned can help with, is can actually make a space seem more “expensive”- which can help your perceived home value. It’s something to consider if feedback you get is that the rooms feel small and they really aren’t.
