Staging a Loft: Before and After
When staging a home, you need to make sure each room has it’s designated purpose. Here are some tips on Staging a Loft so you get top dollar for the sale of your home!
Our loft in our home has gone thru many changes.
First it was a mini office for me and then changed to our homeschool classroom. Neither of which would appeal to any potential buyer.
So things had to change.
But let’s walk through how it looked over the years.
When we decided to homeschool our boys years ago, we needed a place to facilitate our classroom, so we rearranged the loft to make it work.
Multiple desks and computers, and even a giant whiteboard!
We built this giant craft desk as well.
I purchased two 9 cubby organizers and lined the backs with bead board.
The top was a precut 4 ft x 4 ft piece that I stained.
I finished it out by adding trim to the edges and I LOVED it!
Can you tell?
I’m sharing enough pics, but it had to go.
But it looked busy and was an overwhelming view once you got to the top of the stairs.
It may be difficult for a prospective buyer to find their purpose in the room.
So we got rid of the classroom!
Look at the difference repurposing this room made!
So much space! My boys can flip and flop all over the place!
I added a couch that I removed from our Master Bedroom when I staged that room and added an armoire to act as an Entertainment Center.
In my post about Depersonalizing, I shared the busy photos of my younglings as babies.
As much as I adored them, I wanted to appeal to the potential buyer. So I replaced them with more neutral artwork.
On the other side of the loft sits my pretty bench makeover.
So there you have it!
By staging a loft into a space with a purpose, you can boost the likelihood of offers when it appeals to every type of person.
