In our previous blogs, we talked a lot about how to stage a property for it to sell fast and at top dollar. While home staging is something that any skilled real estate agent can do, it is quite a challenging task especially if you haven’t done it before. We have over a decade of experience in staging almost all kinds of properties from HDBs, shophouses, and offices, to condo units and landed houses.
Staging a small HDB unit is different from Staging a Good Class Bungalow. The former may require the use of minimal furnishings but the planning, designing, and arranging efforts are somewhat the same as the staging of the latter. In a small house, the stager has to create a good plan to make the unit appear spacious. With a big property on the other hand, we have to arrange furniture and decorate beautifully to make the house look and feel inviting and homely.
We have mastered the art of prepping a home to attract a pool of potential buyers and so, in this blog, we will walk you through how we staged this Luxury 5-Bedroom Landed House in Chatsworth Road.
The property was located in a cul de sac area away from the noise of traffic. It is surrounded by greenery which makes it the ideal property for families who are looking for a big vacation house, or a peaceful and comfortable lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
This 5,750 sq ft floor area is challenging to stage because there is a lot that needs to be covered. We have to make sure that the property looks furnished and ready to move in. First, we did the planning. We thoroughly selected the right furniture from our warehouse that would complement the interior and Architectural style of the house.
Next, we decided to go for a contemporary color scheme with minimal splashes of color to add visual interest. We also included soft furnishings and elements of wood to create a homely yet modern charm to the interior.
Staging the Foyer
The foyer is the first area that potential buyers would see once they walked in during viewing. The foyer of the house is quite spacious and so we don’t want it to look too empty and dull. We added a console table right across the front door and some display shelves to place decorations and give the buyer a basic impression or idea of how big the foyer is.
Staging the foyer will instantly create a welcoming ambiance to the space. Moreover, strategically placing furniture here will give the potential buyer an idea of how they can utilize the space.
Staging the Living Room
Right next to the foyer is the living room. The area is big and well-lighted as it is surrounded by large floor-to-ceiling windows that open up to the patio leading to the pool area.
One significant feature that we considered when staging the living room is the Octagon-shaped drop ceiling design with a large ceiling fan suspended at the center. We use it as a focal point and arrange the sofa in a complementary layout that will tie the overall look of the living room together.
Staging the Dining Room
For the dining room, the room is in a square shape and we wanted to maximize the space so that the buyer can see how spacious the room is and how they can design it according to their liking. We chose a big square 12-seater dining table to furnish the space and added a console table on one side of the wall across the entrance of the dining room. On top of that, we put a modern minimalist artwork to add interest and visual aesthetic to the wall.
Staging the Bedrooms
Staging the bedrooms was probably the most challenging part because we have to place five different beds in each room and design them accordingly based on the space and layout of the rooms. In staging the bedrooms, we stick to neutral yet comfortable color schemes.
We don’t want to create gender-designed bedrooms as it can sometimes turn potential buyers off. We don’t really have an idea who’s going to be using the bedrooms so the safest and most practical way when staging one is to keep it neutral.
Bedroom 1 is a spacious bedroom with large sliding doors that leads to the pool area. For the bedding, we wanted to create something colorful to evoke a somewhat serene tropical vibe. We decided to go for a blue and white color-scheme beddings and accentuate it with colorful throw pillows and a soft fur rug on the floor. To top it off, we casually place a minimalist painting on the wall to add character to the room.
Bedroom 2 was the biggest bedroom in the house. We decided to go for a King-Sized bed with a tufted headboard to create a sense of grandeur. Next, we placed side tables on either side of the bed and spruced it up with lamps and some minimal side table accessories. Because the room was big enough to fit in a living area, we also added a loveseat couch on the far left side near the window and a study table right across the bed.
For bedroom 3, we place a Queen-sized bed and beige-colored beddings. We pair it up with bright gold throw pillows for a luxurious feel. We keep the décor neutral but we furnished it with essential bedroom furniture like a console table, a bright orange accent chair, and a tiny study area.
Bedroom 4 has an identical design to bedroom 3 with a color blocked wall behind the headboard. To create contrast, we choose lighter-colored beddings and wooden side tables. Same with bedroom 3, we added a blue and gray accent chair and a study nook for a full-furnished look.
We stick to the usual neutral yet comfortable theme with bedroom 5. The main goal is to help the viewer see the potential of each room and give them an initial idea of how big the space is by placing essential furniture like study tables, side tables, console tables, and accent chairs.
Staging the Outdoor area
The property has a breathtaking outdoor patio with a pool area. Staging homes doesn’t just stop in the interior of the house. We also stage outdoor space to highlight the main feature and make the buyer fall in love with the space. We put an outdoor seating area in the patio as well as an outdoor dining area. The space can be utilized for parties, family gatherings, and celebrations. The property will undoubtedly win the hearts of any buyer looking for a home with that specific characteristic. Thus, staging the outdoors is just as important as staging any other spaces in the house.
