If you're short on space, the solution is to keep it simple. This especially bodes well if your home is being put on the market. By "keeping it simple" you create more "visual" real estate.
Here's an example.
This is the living room, while under construction. This particular home was a home we had staged for one of our investors, hence the condition of the room.
With all the construction material moved out, and just the furniture brought in, here's what the room looked like:
Now here's what the room looks like with it completely arranged and accessories added: As you can see, the design was kept simple. In doing so, you also create a cohesive and clutter-free room, which is another key factor when selling.
And one of my favorite things to do when taking my after pictures is to capture a close-up. Here's one I had taken of the coffee table.
Whether selling your home or not, small spaces can pose some challenges for the owner. Keep It Simple and remember these rules:
- Less is More - Don't bombard the space with furniture.
- Make it Clutter-Free - Eyes need to rest. Having a clutter-free room will allow the buyer to SEE the room and NOT the stuff in the room.
- Use Clean Lines - You'll be amazed at just how big a difference it will make.
