Lavender & Birch Home Staging & Design loves every opportunity we get to stage someone’s home and make it look absolutely perfect. But just recently we had the opportunity to stage a very special home… a custom build in the beautiful neighborhood of Geneva National!
Geneva National is no doubt one of the most beautiful areas in the Midwest. From golf courses to restaurants, from hiking trails to playgrounds, and from a friendly community to your own backyard, Geneva National has it all! The homes there are nothing short of attractive and the new home on the block built by Balsitis Contacting Inc. is certainly no exception. We loved seeing the open concept, large kitchen and living room, spacious bedrooms, and gorgeous three seasons room. Not to mention the large basement with its own wine room (yum!).
Coming into the home we could immediately see the spectacular potential that it had. But unlike us, not everyone can visualize how a space can fit their own personal needs and desires. Through staging, we create an environment that shows buyers how they truly can live out their ideal lifestyle in the space they are seeing. Creating this same environment for the home in Geneva National was such a fun experience! The layout and feel of the house was already beautiful, but we were able to really pull everything together and make it come alive with staging.
Once all the furniture and accessories were in their perfect position, you could just stand in awe of how beautiful and inviting the space was and think to yourself “I want to live here”. When I walked through the house empty, I saw a bunch of walls creating rooms. But when I walked through the house after it was staged, I felt like life was happening there and I wanted to be a part of it. I admit that when we were done staging this specific property, I didn’t want to leave! I could truly see myself living my own ideal lifestyle in the space we just created and I know that buyers who see these pictures and walk that space will be thinking the same thing to themselves. This is the power of staging! Feeling so invited, welcomed, and comfortable in a space that it makes you want it as your own.
We love how staging impacts and amplifies gorgeous homes like this one in Geneva National. But how does staging affect the commonplace home?
Even if your home does not have the same kind of luxurious structure and layout that our friends at Balsitis Contacting Inc. created in Geneva National, that does not mean your home does not have potential! Every house has the potential of becoming someone’s dream home. All that needs to happen is the drawing out and highlighting of that potential.
When you stage a home -whether high end or run of the mill- the same affect is created in each. It shows that the space is inviting, welcoming, comfortable, and able to support your ideal lifestyle, whatever that may look like. Being able to see a spare room as an office or bedroom, or seeing a basement as a kids play space or additional sitting area can open up the eyes and imagination of the buyers to see more than just 4 walls and a floor. It helps them see a home and potentially their new home.
So whether you are selling a mansion on a hill or a cabin in the woods, let staging become the gateway to welcoming buyers into their new home.
