Trends in home design and staging vary every year, and being aware of the latest innovations and trends can help you figure out a staging strategy that would be most effective for the type of clientele you are looking to communicate to.
Here are some design trends that are currently hot among interior design experts and professional home stagers.
Outdoor kitchens. Homeowners are looking for more spaces for outdoor entertaining and hanging out. Outdoor kitchen areas can be as simple as a BBQ grill or as complex as an actual cooking station with a sink, storage, oven, and countertops.
Entertainment centers. With the world as we currently know it and travel not recommended, families are turning to staycations and home theaters to entertain themselves. Home theater systems, plush seating, state-of-the-art sound systems, and a comfortable, homey media center feel are particularly attractive to many home buyers. You do not have to splurge too much on a home entertainment system; just recreating the “look” or using props can send the idea effectively.
Multipurpose or double-duty furniture. Today’s consumers have placed more priority on cost-effective furnishings and home accessories. Furniture items that combine form and function are very popular and also save space, and they are particularly effective for staging smaller spaces such as apartments, townhouses, and condos.
