8 Popular Home-Staging Trends

home stage tips when selling

Thinking of selling your home? Read about some current decor trends for staging your home:

(1) OUTDOOR SPACES 
Do you have an attractive “outdoor room” that needs to be highlighted? Show off how this space can be used for entertaining purposes. Set out a few dishes to set the table for an outdoor meal or barbecue. Add a hammock with a book and a comfy blanket.

Look at some of our outdoor rooms on Pinterest here. Go here for porch ideas.

(2) KITCHENS: BRIGHT AND WHITE 
A new trend for kitchens is white and bright. If you are not willing to paint your cabinets, perhaps consider showing off spare, white accessories that will make your kitchen seem brighter.

(3) GOLD/BRASS 
Gold and brass are back in style! Think framed mirrors and brass bar carts. Use these types of accents sparingly. Get some inspiration here.

(4) NAVY BLUE 
Navy blue is an easy color to work with and is popular. This is a strong, neutral hue to use as an accent wall. Navy blue looks great with yellow, tan and chartreuse.

(5) BLACK 
Black elements can be found in lighting, framing or a statement piece of furniture. It’s good to use as a focal point. See ideas using black here.

(6) DINING ROOM – NO MATCHY MATCHY
Is your dining room an empty space? Do not worry about staging this room with a full suite of matching furniture. People are using unique pieces in their dining rooms. Chairs do not have to match the table. The side board can be an old dresser. Get some ideas here.

(7) HOME OFFICES 
Home offices are coveted rooms. If you have a home office, be sure to showcase it. If not, think about converting a rarely used corner of a spare bedroom into a mini office. Many people have used their dining room tables staged as desks when selling their homes.

(8) NATURAL ELEMENTS 
Live, indoor plants, macrame and Scandinavian-style furniture are current design trends that reflect natural elements. Plants add energy to rooms and a neutral look is calming and appealing to home buyers. (Think IKEA designs.)

Need help staging your home to sell? Contact Sibcy Cline Home Services. They can put your in touch with professional stagers who can provide consultations or temporary use of furniture.

    Enjoy a Movie at an Outdoor Theater This Spring and Summer

    StarliteOutdoorTheater_sign6

    Everyone has been binge-watching Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video from home this spring. If you are in the mood to see a first-show film, consider going to a local outdoor theater. From the comfort of your vehicle, you can watch a couple of movies under the stars. Be sure to bring your blankets and pillows!

    Outdoor theaters were very popular in the 1960s and 70s. You watched two movies with a 10-minute intermission that included cartoons. Most theaters had a play area to enjoy before the movie began. (Anyone remember Woodlawn Outdoor Theater on Springfield Pike, Oakley Drive-In on Madison Road, Mt. Healthy Drive-In on Compton Road, Twin Theater in Bond Hill, Jolly Roger Drive-In in Sharonville, Ferguson Drive-In in Western Hills or the Holiday 28 Drive-In in Loveland?)
