Home Staging in Ireland looks like this ...

Inspired by Michelle Pimentel's blog about staging in France I remembered that on a trip over to Ireland last Fall I visited several model homes and took photos of the staging. It was fun to see their furnishings and the staging methods they used, which are quite different in some ways than what we're used to here in North America!

These were newly-built model homes in a modestly-priced development near the quaint village of Castleconnell in County Limerick near Ireland's west coast.  Prices range from $360K to $475K with sizes from 1035 to 1585 sq ft. The sales brochure states that "the main bedroom has an ensuite (bathroom) including an electric shower."  If you've visited Ireland and parts of the UK, you'll know that showers can be cold unless they've been specially fitted with an "electric" device to provide hot water!

A couple of things you'll notice in the photos is that they use very little greenery compared to here in the US, and they hang the art very high on the walls .... it was all I could do to keep myself from lowering it!

Bedside lamps are often quite small, and they're plugged in but have no bulbs!

Dining spaces can either be off the kitchen or living room ....

 .... Or they can be more casual eating spaces in the kitchen ....

"Fully fitted kitchens" are an extra cost when selecting your home here ...

Bedrooms are small and compact  in this development ....

And living rooms are cozy spaces as well ...

Bathrooms are compact and efficient .... and are quite simply staged with plants ...

It would be fun if others here would post photos of home staging in other countries from their travels!  If you have any to share, please post!

Hi Maureen, what an interesting post.  Thank so much for sharing that.  I don't really know what I expected staging in Ireland to look like, but I was really surprised.  Yeah, I would have been tempted to lower the pictures as well. Very interesting!! :)

Robyn ~ It was all I could do NOT to lower the art!  I'm sure most of us would have felt the same way.  Thanks for weighing in.

Lisa ~ Model homes in Ireland are often staged, but so far it's unheard of for an occupied home.  They could use our help, that's for sure.

Cathy ~ It would be fun to see other countries' staging as well .... thanks for stopping.
