Staging a home is the process of decorating a home in order to present it in the best possible light for potential buyers or renters. Home staging is often used by home builders, real estate agents and private homeowners in order to give the prospect a positive, warm and inspired feeling upon entering the home. Staging has become popular as it is an effective means of motivating sales or rentals. In fact, commercial property brokers and developers are also using staging as well. Staging is a strategy used throughout New York, especially Manhattan real estate and with high end real estate in Westchester County.
If you decide to stage your home when putting it for sale, many ideas come to mind. The key to organize and focusing your ideas is to remember you are staging the property to attract the prospect, not to attract yourself. For this reason, many real estate agents have studied home staging or enlist the services of an interior designer. Haven't you entered a model home and felt the developer had you in mind when building the home. Often times, you feel this way because the home was decorated to embrace your emotions in such a way you feel at home in a strange place.
When staging a home you have many options. In Manhattan and Westchester County, renting furniture is common to create a look that appeals to the potential client. While this is a good idea, a new set of furniture also means the walls sometimes are painted to bring out the colors and style of the furniture. Since most times you wish to appeal to both male and females, the proper custom picture frame on chosen artworks is used to attract the attention of people who enter the home and helps create a theme for the room or even throughout the home.
In most homes, picture frames are mounted in such a manner they are clustered on one or two walls in the home. While standard pictures frames are used as well the primary artwork is usually wearing a custom picture frame to capture the attention. Custom picture frames enhance the picture or art by complimenting its beauty and message.
For the artwork to have the most impact, spread them across various rooms in a creative manner. This helps enhance the beauty of the artwork and makes the home look more spacious. Since you have decided to spread the artworks across various rooms, this means you will need picture frames that blend with the theme of each room. With custom frames and our custom picture frame services, you can custom design a frame that fits into the room perfectly.
Now you know how important picture frames and artwork can be when staging your home, but how do you decide on what custom frame is best for staging the home?
Well here are a few tips that can make a custom picture frame work to your advantage if you wish to stage a home in anywhere including Manhattan, Scarsdale or White Plains, NY;
If you are putting more than one frame on a wall, the pictures in the frame should have a common theme, and the custom frames should have similar designs or color
The frames should not have artworks which center around your personal life
The color of the frames should blend with the walls, upholstery, and flooring in the room
Large rooms which have high ceilings will need large frames
The size of the art in the frame should not be too small that it is difficult to see and also not too large that it overwhelms the room
