Here's an important home staging tip: Don't make home buyers guess if their furniture will fit in your home. Its very difficult to judge the how much furniture will fit in an empty room. Empty rooms look smaller than rooms that have a few pieces of well-chosen furniture. The furniture gives the room scale and lets buyers know that, yes, you can have a queen bed and there will still be room to walk around it.
Looking at this photo, you wouldn't know what size bed could fit in this room - full? queen? king? Actually, the room looks pretty small.
Same bedroom, taken from the same angle (OK, almost the same angle) with the same lens and camera. The room looks so much larger. Staging a queen bed lets the buyer know his/her queen bed will easily fit, and there is even room for 2 night stands and a dresser.
When you have a home professionally staged, you allow a buyer to see how large the rooms really are and what size/how much furniture can fit. When you leave the house empty - devoid of furniture or lifestyle - you're asking too much of potential buyers. Make it easy for them to fall in love with your home.
So take this home staging tip from a professional home stager - Don't make home buyers guess!
