3 Things to Know About Staging Any Home with an Open Floor Plan

Staging an open concept floor plan is important because it helps potential buyers visualize the space and its potential uses. Without home staging, the layout and flow of the space can be difficult to understand, leading to confusion and a lack of interest from potential buyers. Additionally, without professional home staging, the open space can feel cold and uninviting, making it hard for buyers to make that emotional connection to the home.

Imagine touring an empty home in January ...cold, echoing voices and incredibly uncomfortable...this is NOT where people fall in love with their new home!

#1: Staging Helps Clearly Define Areas

To arrange furniture in an open concept home, we start by defining zones for the living room, dining area, and kitchen. The use of area rugs anchor each space, and we arrange furniture accordingly. We use furniture groupings and strategic placement of lighting fixtures to create a cozy, welcoming atmosphere in each zone. It is important to consider the scale of the rugs and furniture and the cohesiveness of the colors and style; and we always take great consideration when it comes to the scale of the furniture in a space.

#2: Staging Creates a Flow from Room to Room

It is crucial to ensure there is enough space for potential buyers to move comfortably between rooms in an open concept home. This will help them to get a feel for the layout and flow of the space. Home staging can be used to create a natural flow by using furniture and decor to guide the eye through the space, and by placing accent pieces strategically to draw attention to key areas. Additionally, incorporating lighting and color schemes can help to create a cohesive look throughout the home.

Our home staging acts as a tour guide through the home. We draw their attention to the strengths of the home and detour them around the less desirable aspects of the home.

#3: Staging Unifies the Various Spaces

Using cohesive flooring, paint colors, and color schemes throughout an open concept home is essential for creating a sense of unity and flow between the different spaces. Each area should feel like it belongs to the same home, with a consistent design aesthetic that ties everything together. This will help potential buyers envision themselves living in the space and make the home feel more inviting and harmonious.

Staging an open floor plan home is essential for helping buyers visualize the potential of the space, and it can make a significant difference in the success of a sale. A well-staged open concept home can create a feeling of spaciousness and flow, and make the home more appealing to a wide range of buyers. Overall, I highly recommend staging open concept homes, and I have seen many success stories where a well-staged home sold quickly and for a higher price than expected.
