While home staging is a wonderful tool that can increase your chances of finding a buyer, their final decision is still largely dependent on how well you're able to present your property. Beyond aesthetics, clients need to be able to imagine themselves living in their new home when looking at your design.
This is why home staging is all about drilling down and paying attention to the smallest details. In particular, the artwork we use. By paying close attention to the elements used in your design, you can make your staged home stand out from other property sellers in the market.
In this article, we share four of the most important features to consider when selecting the right art for staging your home.
Like any form of visual art, colours can greatly influence the general look of your design. If you are planning to enhance the mood set by your design’s fixed elements, the colours of your décor are the easiest to tweak. For spaces that lack colour, add life by bringing in artwork and furniture with bright accents, but for spaces that are already vibrant, tone down the mood with something neutral.
Needless to say, the colours you choose must coordinate with each other.
TIP: Adjacent colours on the colour wheel are ideal colour combinations.
Incorporating images on walls is a great way to create a homely atmosphere. Notably, the elements portrayed in the images can affect your buyer’s sense of ownership. Choose abstract patterns and inanimate objects as the subject of your gallery. Avoid putting up images that feature people such as family portraits or paintings of random individuals, and photos with religious or political symbolisms.
Where and how you place your artwork also has an impact on your home’s appearance. Each room and area in your space must possess visual balance in terms of weight and direction. For instance, if most of your furniture leans on one side of the room, then that side may appear too “heavy”. One easy trick to establish visual harmony is to find the centre line of a room and match elements on both sides as much as possible to create more symmetry.
Size and Scale
Visual balance can also be achieved by being consistent with the size and scale of your items. If you have a moderately sized wall, adding a full-length mirror or a long wall bookshelf can fill up its negative space beautifully. Similarly, a piece of artwork that takes up a good chunk of the negative space on a wall creates a powerful and impactful visual statement. On the other hand, an artwork is that is too small or too large compared to the rest of the room can come off as underwhelming or overpowering.
