Staging TriLevel Home in Centenniel Colorado

The Challenge: Staging TriLevel home to make it look spacious and inviting, even with over-sized furniture.

Two years ago, Josh and Cindy moved from a spacious home in Texas to a modest sized TriLevel in Centenniel, Colorado. They were shocked to see how their large scale furniture (which fit perfectly in Texas) crowded the Colorado home.

And now, a career move means they're moving back to Texas. What to do with these crowded rooms to make their TriLevel more marketable to home buyers?

Living Room After

What Happened in this Room?

  • Only one piece of furniture was moved out, the display shelf

  • Sofa was moved to the largest wall, the one you see when entering the room

  • Love seat and side chair were positioned so as to create an inviting conversation area and to minimize the long, narrow proportions of this room. Successfully arranging furniture will make a room seem larger and better proportioned

  • Wall art is hung closer to the sofa and centered over it

  • Coffee table is cleaned of clutter and artfully arranged. See how in decorating a coffee table

  • Greenery adds freshness and softens the edges of the room. See some helpful tips on decorating with greenery

  • The family was using this room as a playroom, but the home is more marketable if buyers can imagine it as a bedroom

  • Most of the toys were packed up and put away
