Experiment with Different Looks

Final Look

Try different Home Staging looks till you find the right one. The first staging design involved only a few pieces (chair, rug & plant), but it didn’t feel warm enough. This space leads from the entryway into the living room so I wanted Buyers to feel an instant embrace and welcoming feel. The final look adds onto the first idea. This design incorporated a relaxing daybed, comfy throw, more pillows and hanging artwork to further warm up the space and create an instantly inviting feel.


Before Staging


First Look

Remind Buyers Good Schools Are Nearby

Before Staging


After Staging

Buyers with children or who maybe starting a family are looking for homes near good schools. When staging, make it a point to emphasize the location’s education opportunities. In my current listing 4693 Kolohala, I specifically staged 2 of the home’s 5 bedrooms as children’s rooms. Bed, desk for homework, toy and game section and a chair for mom and dad.

Leave Buyers with a Lasting Impression

4693 Kolohala

In the master bedroom of my current listing, 4693 Kolohala (Kahala), the focal point is the bed, however it’s the touching design of the side tables that will resonate with Buyers. Already welcoming with their cream color and circular design, I choose a peaceful starfish and a stone with “Paradise” written on it to stage one of the tables. Remind Buyers, especially mainland and international Buyers, what makes living in Hawaii so special. Sometimes the simplest staging items make the biggest impact.

Living Room Transformed Through Home Staging

Before (Top) & After Staging (Bottom)

What was once an empty, lifeless living room is transformed into an inviting gathering place where Buyers can picture relaxing with their family and loved ones. I staged with simple, classic furniture and a few accent pieces to bring a welcoming, at home feel to the space. Then I turned my attention to hanging artwork which add a splash of color to the living room and filled the large shelves with an assortment of charming items that represent island living.

Be Bold!

Dining Table

I staged the dining table in my new Kahala listing with bright magenta placemats and napkins; flatware with deep blue handles and ornate accents; and selected square plates to create a contemporary table that will catch a Buyer’s eye. Utilize Home Staging to infuse personality into a space and make a lasting impression.
