Kitchen Staging Inspired by the Season

December 27, 2016 (posted by Jennifer Campbell, Home Staging Calgary)

Kitchens sell homes. It’s a truth that most of us are familiar with. As important as the actual kitchen features are, how the room is presented through staging also matters. You can go ahead and mix it up by tapping into seasonal inspiration in kitchen staging.
Why can it be helpful to choose kitchen staging according to the season? Because the more emotional connection the potential buyers have to the property, the more likely they will be to want to make it their next home.
So what could seasonal kitchen staging look like? Well, during our cold Calgary winters, there is a natural tendency to huddle indoors. What’s more cozy and nurturing than gathering in the kitchen to bake some yummy goodies to share?

So you could stage with that lifestyle experience in mind. And, when the potential buyers walk into the kitchen during a viewing, not only will they notice the key features of the room, but they will also be easily transported by emotion, either in remembering fond memories or in anticipating the new memories they want to create.
Adjusting your kitchen staging by season creates a more seamless connection for buyers between their experience outside and inside the listing. It makes sense.
Personally, I love to bake. So you will find recipes on the Set Your Stage Food board, like a yummy gluten free brownie with an ingredient that might surprise you!
