There are thousands of condos on the market in most cities. Standing out amongst the competition is important and condo staging is a must! When a condo is vacant there’s a few problems with that. First of all, the condo will appear smaller than it is, there’s nothing in the room to give proper depth perception. Buyers struggle to know if their furniture will fit in the space, or how to arrange it. Buyers also struggle to make an emotional connection.
Having too much furniture in a room is also a mistake some sellers make, it will make a room appear smaller. It’s really important to have just the right amount of furniture and to allow for good flow from room to room, and to create conversational areas that are intimate.
Using white furniture in this up-scale condo still allowed the view to take center stage and created a beautiful, soft contrast that really made the water pop out in the photos. Incorporating natural wood elements in the room, such as the live edge coffee table brings warmth to the condo. I often find that some condos that are staged are quite masculine and sometimes feel a bit cold. This live edge table is always a hit with the men as well – even the rough and tough tradesmen!
Using a glass dining table kept the space feeling open, and doesn’t constrict the space…it feels quite large in the photos and in person. The base of the table is chrome adding to the modern feel. Industrial stools were used at the island, and small touches in the kitchen were added. Less is always more when staging – you want clean and uncluttered.
I love how this condo turned out, after I staged it I really didn’t want to leave!
