Hang Art as an Anchor in Home Staging

January 08, 2017 (posted by Jennifer Campbell, Home Staging Calgary)
You may be the type of person who avoids commitment when hanging art on your walls. Maybe you don’t like all those holes! But when it comes to staging your home to appeal to buyers, I say choosing to hang art in key rooms is a MUST DO when it’s time to sell.
As a Calgary home staging professional, it’s no secret that I love adding art strategically to my staged properties. I’ve written before about how to use artwork for house selling so that you can highlight features or add life to a room.
Does this room look familiar?

Before: Bonus room before professional home staging.

See the difference professional home staging makes!

After: Adding furniture, art and accessories to this bonus space help buyers invision living here. In this space you could unwind after a long day and enjoy TV.

And plenty of inspiration can be found in our “after staging” photos on the Set Your Stage Facebook page.
But if you still have questions about how to actually hang art, look to Pinterest. How high? In what arrangement? Check out our Home Staging Tips board to get the details.
For staging purposes, I prefer the simplicity of the anchor approach, which you will see in many of our staged room photos. It creates an important grounding and balancing effect, both in the listing photos and when the potential buyers walk through for a personal viewing.

When you hang art to stage with a purpose, you have the power to influence. The combination of your selected staging furniture, art, and accessories will come together to create the mood and image that you know will speak to your right buyers.
If it’s time to sell, hang art to create a lasting impression. Better yet, get some help from a professional home stager with experience staging properties in your neighbourhood.
