Decorating a Small Living Room Dining Room
There are many condos on the market with one room serving as living room and dining room and it's a challenge to make them look roomy and inviting. But stagers have perfected the art, because making a small room feel big can help sell a home.
Smaller condos frequently have a living room and dining room combined into one, like a small apartment. This is a typical situation in senior communities. The condos are designed to be compact and easy to maneuver. But arranging furniture can be a headache.
These rooms are rectangles with one large expanse of wall and several openings (kitchen, hallway and patio).
Staging a dining room is a powerful way to tickle a buyer's imagination. You want them to walk in and instantly think: "I want to live here!"
Staging any area of the house, particularly a
living room, requires a delicate balance between making it inviting and
interesting, while resisting the urge to add so many things that it
becomes distracting. Always remember, your goal is to sell the house.
