Finding Inspiration For House Staging

It’s easy to find inspiration for house staging. Staging your home before you put it on the market is advisable to attract more interest and a higher price. If you’re not in the least bit design-conscious and find it difficult to envisage interiors, don’t worry because many free resources are available. I’ve listed my favourite places to find inspiration for house staging to get you started.

Saving Your Inspiration For House Staging On Pinterest

Have you heard of Pinterest? It’s a popular social media that allows you to set up virtual mood boards online. You save pictures from websites or your computer onto your pinboards. You can set up Pinterest boards that are visible to other people or secret boards which only you can view. You can invite your partner or friend to add pictures to your secret pinboards if you grant them access.

Homegirl London Pinterest Boards

It’s a good idea to set up a separate board for each room in your home and a few general boards. Browse Pinterest to find photographs you love of specific rooms, interior styles and colours. When you have a few pictures saved, you can start to form your ideas on how you want to stage your home. Decide on the style of your interiors (contemporary, vintage, industrial, shabby chic, mid-century modern or eclectic). Select a colour palette for the house or each room. Think about a theme for each room (tropical, nautical, etc). Try to work with what you already have but make improvements. Remember that you are staging the house to sell, not for yourself, so keep that thought in mind.

Gathering Inspiration For House Staging From Property Websites

An excellent place to search for inspiration is the estate agent’s websites and property websites like Zoopla. View similar properties to yours in terms of the number of bedrooms, type of house and price. As you browse, you’ll be drawn to some of the photographs; stop and ask yourself why that is. Does the room look airy and spacious? Is there a beautiful painting hanging on the wall?

Houzz is another useful website to browse. It’s a website and online community of interior designers, architects, furniture makers and more. Also, search for interior blogs, which are a great source of ideas. Pin any pictures you like to your mood boards so you can draw inspiration from them later.
