Dining room and Living room interior redesign…

 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.
HOw interior redesign can help you sell your home!
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.

Dining room before. Staging this space so it was balance makes all of the difference.
 In the before picture, everything seemed slightly hodge-podge and had no sense of balance.
After
The lamps and chairs on the buffet add balanceWe 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.

Make the space look inviting and put together by interior redesign and using what you have. IT's amazing to see the difference!

Before
Living room before. Make the space look more open by mmoving the furniture placement.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.
After
Furniture placement makes the livingroom look more open and inviting.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.

    Yes. Mother of the year indeed. Funny. Your beer had to be warm. Great job. I especially love the living room. That made a huge difference. I am sure she is loving it.

    It looks like a pretty old house too. The living room arrangement is better because of the steps. Before the couch and end table looked like they were blocking the steps a little. Everything looks very nice.

    Amazing what half a can of beer can accomplish! Seriously, it looks wonderful. I love how the dining room now looks.

    P.S. I’d vote for any one with a can of beer and a bottle of wine for mother of the year…as long as they were willing to share!

    Jen, I need someone like you to come to my house next. I’ll give you beer….wine if you’d like. That living room looks much nicer the way you arranged it. I have mucho problems with my upstairs LR. I’ll spare you a verbose post all about that room. lol

    Great job 😉

    Maybe next time I want to move my furniture around and redecorate, I should grab a beer (only if it turns out as good as her house did!).
    I really love how much light you let in the living room – and that fact that you can actually see the stairs.
    Wonderful job – well deserved bottle of wine :)

    It’s amazing what rearranging can do to a room!!! its sooo much fun! Yesterday I was telling my hubby about my grand plans of revamping the rooms of our house, all he said,” well you like to change things up and I don’t see the need but I like old cars and you don’t see the need, have fun with that.” hee hee
