If, like me, you love watching those home make-over programs on TV and the ones where people buy up an old property, refurbish it an put it on the market for a vast profit - have you ever wondered how they get all that fabulous new furniture in too without rocketing the price of the job?
Well the answer to that is that they use things from specialist home staging furniture companies, so here are a few ideas how you to might use home staging furniture.
Whether you’re selling a property, or indeed looking to rent out a property, you could increase the value of it by using home staging furniture to impress the viewers visiting it. First of all, if you’ve lived in a property for a while and are looking for a new buyer or tenant then your existing furniture might not look that good just now.
You know that anyone coming to view the property will be more inclined to buy or rent it if they can see that the property has been well maintained, which is why you’re have made sure that it is clean and tidy, possibly having decorated it too. You do these things to make the property look ‘at its best’ and the same is true for the furniture you have in it.
If your furniture is looking old and tired, or perhaps just not in keeping with the décor that you think prospective viewers might expect - then hiring things from a home staging furniture company could help you to make the property look all that more appealing and easier to sell/ rent.
If you’re renovating a property to sell immediately you’ll either not be living in it 24/7 or will probably have an absolute minimum of furniture in to, to make moving things around easier as you’re working in the different rooms. Even then any furniture you do have in it is likely to be old and, well let’s just say, ‘tired’ looking.
With the renovation complete and all the decorations done, to really sell the rooms, whether you want to rent the property out or sell it outright, you know you need to give the viewers some clues as to how they might utilize the spaces.
You won’t want to go the expense of buying furniture outright as your tastes and their tastes and needs may vary; so, the obvious solution is to hire home staging furniture from a local home staging furniture store.

If doing the hard work of renovating, decorating or even just cleaning is what you excel at, but feel yourself to be somewhat shy of ideas about what sort of home staging furnishings you should use; then any of the more established and reputable home staging furniture companies will be only too willing to advise you on how best to show off the property you want to sell or rent out. Note there that we‘re saying home furnishings, as it’s not just about things like chairs, tables, beds and cabinets.
You also need to think about lamps in the rooms and the ambience their lighting can give. Also there are things like paintings/pictures on the walls and floor coverings etc to consider. Remember, all the home staging furnishings come together to create that ideal homely feeling that you want, so that your property can change hands in the shortest time possible and for the very best value to you.
