Does the staging of a dining room seem obvious to you? So far I’ve written articles about staging a bedroom and a living room, but neglected the dining room. No more!
Let me make it clear: I use the term “dining room” loosely to refer to a dining area in your house.
Some homes have a formal dining room and possibly an informal dining area in the kitchen.
In general, however, there appears to be a trend towards less “formal” spaces, such as B. a separate dining room and formal living room. If you don’t have a big house, urban living trends tend to be smaller, more functional spaces.
Nevertheless, the dining area is one of the most important areas of your home that are for sale.
Often the dining table or the entire room becomes a storage place for paperwork, homework for children, handicraft projects and a work area. 🙂
We live the way it suits our lifestyle, but we sell our home to meet potential buyers.
The first thing you should know about your dining area is that your table and lamp are the focal points of this room. What does that mean?
This means that visitors’ eyes are naturally drawn to the table and the chandelier. Let them count!
The tips for staging your dining room
The main goal is to present the room spacious and bright. We want to create a nice flow in the room, which means that we want to walk around the table with ease.
Start by debugging or removing everything (except the table and chairs).
Check the size of your dining table in relation to the room. Can you remove a leaf to make it smaller unless you have a huge space?
Next the chairs. We usually recommend storing 4 chairs to stage a dining room (unless the space is very large).
A tablecloth protects your table? If so, please remove!
What does the chandelier look like? Is it proportional to the size of the room and the size of the table? Is there enough light? If it doesn’t meet the requirements, replace it.
Customers often ask me if and which should add a centerpiece to the table. My advice is always to keep it simple and proportional to the size of the table and the height of the chandelier.
Some suggestions could be a runner, large candle holders, a vase of flowers, or a large decorative bowl.
Some people go so far as to fully cover the table with dishes, cutlery, glasses and napkins. I personally am not a fan, unless it is a very high quality home, the dining room is not used every day and you want to show the entertaining possibilities.
If you have a stable or other large piece of furniture in this room, clear everything from above. You can then add a small plant, a lamp, a couple of candles and a large mirror or a piece of art to scale to it. Keep it simple!
Check your window covers. Are they out of date? Do they prevent the light from coming in? Do you need them at all?
A final tip for plant lovers. Do you have too many plants in the room? It’s okay to keep a few, but be careful not to overwhelm the room with plants!
Example of a customer
Josie R. from Florida recently offered her beautiful home for sale. Since her kitchen has a large dining area, she already had a large dining table there. She never furnished her formal dining room, so her original listing showed the almost empty space, the function of which is completely undefined.
Josie’s kitchen table was quite large and pretty, so I suggested moving it to the formal dining room. She then bought a smaller dining area for her kitchen area.
See the results!
I hope you will continue to stage your dining room.
