Remodeling your home is an exciting experience, but the work doesn’t stop when construction does. There’s just one more step to revitalizing your space: staging your remodel. The items you choose to fill your home with can take the completed design to the next level. Use the tips below to stage your remodel and ensure it looks its best from top to bottom!
Start From the Ground Up
Decorating your remodeled space can be overwhelming. After all, there are a lot of things to consider. However, you can simplify the process by choosing a floor covering first and working your way up from there. Determining the style, color, and material of a rug determines how other elements are layered within the space and gives you a color palette to work with.
While buying new furniture seems like a relatively straightforward process, selecting the right pieces for your newly remodeled space can be challenging. The key is to find furniture that fits not just the style and size of the room but your needs for the space. When shopping for furniture, think about the following details.
- Design: Pick pieces that match or complement the interior design style of your home.
- Materials: Furniture made of quality materials is generally more durable, longer-lasting, and safer than inexpensive pieces.
- Size: Furniture that’s too small for the room will make it feel empty, while too large furniture will make it feel crowded.
Use Proper Space Planning
Buying furniture isn’t the only time you have to take the size of your space into account. Space planning is essential when staging your remodel because it impacts scale. The goal is to create a balanced space, which means considering the visual weight and distribution of your furnishings. For example, in large spaces like a finished basement, it can be helpful to establish different zones, such as a seating area, game area, and TV area.
Accentuate the Space’s Strengths
There’s likely a lot to love about your completed remodel, so why not highlight its best features during staging? It can be anything from using mirrors to make the most of the space’s natural light to choosing oversized light fixtures that emphasize high ceilings. Whatever it is, don’t be afraid to play up the strength of the space.
Why Hire an Interior Designer to Stage Your Remodel?
Do the tips above seem overly complicated or outside of your wheelhouse? If so, it’s worth it to invest in an interior designer. As an expert trained in all areas of design, they’ll be able to help you stage your home in a way that best highlights your newly remodeled space. On that same note, if you know you’re going to need design help throughout the project, you may want to consider hiring a design-build company.
Opting to work with a design-build company over a standard remodeling contractor means design services are baked into your remodeling plan. Having a designer working on your project from beginning to end offers many advantages. The designer is familiar with the current state of your home and will generally provide a detailed assessment of your existing space. With that knowledge, they can create a plan of action and thoughtful design concept and offer guidance on the furniture, decor, and accessories used to furnish the space. They can even help stage rooms around the remodeled area and other parts of the home.
