Set the Stage for Buyers Who Love to Entertain

June 23, 2016 (posted by Jennifer Campbell, Home Staging Calgary)

For many property buyers, the home is the hub for entertaining. So why not intentionally stage for buyers with that in mind? Create a bar area or other entertaining-friendly space. Help your potential buyers see themselves living and entertaining in your listing and benefit with a faster sale.

A property we staged in Garrison Woods Calgary made it easy to stage for buyers who love to entertain. It already had a built in bar area located between the living room and dining room. By staging it, we gave it life, adding some atmosphere and highlighting it as a key feature of the property.

But you don’t have to have an existing feature like this to successfully set the stage for entertaining. A quick search on Pinterest will result in great ideas.

I love bar carts that can be styled for a range of functions~ after dinner drinks, coffee, or brunch ~ depending on what type of entertaining will be happening. Carts offer the ultimate flexibility, portability, and ability to stage effectively within a small space.

After: This is the perfect retreat/man-cave for the entertainer in your family.

Have an extra room that doesn’t have a specific purpose? Stage it as a games room.

Add functional and organized groupings of items that make sense together in the staged entertaining space to create instant impact.

After: This formal seating area is a great place to entertain.

And don’t forget the outdoor spaces. When you stage for buyers who love to entertain, additional outdoor seating areas are a bonus. If you happen to have a pool, outdoor fireplace, or a great view, make a point of highlighting that too! For more inspiration and home staging tips, check out Set Your Stage on Pinterest.
