Without a doubt, virtual staging is a very effective tool in the hands of the realtor. Showing an empty place won’t do much for the listing; it takes much more work to make it appealing to the potential buyer. As traditional (actual) staging costs way too much while energy and time are wasted, the virtual staging emerges as an ideal solution. The opportunity to showcase different possible designs of the same room to the buyer, not only raises the chances to close the deal but also you might inspire the buyer to imagine their future in that place and call it home. So, here are several design styles you, as a realtor, can make use of when showing a living room to a potential buyer.
Modern Living Room
The modern style is a very popular concept of a style that is favoured by lots of people around the world regardless of their place of living. The characteristics that pop out and shape this style are neutral colours, strong geometric shapes and asymmetry. The walls are usually white and there are schemes with neutral tones. Polished is what comes to mind when you think of a style that is modern.
Contemporary Living Room
The contemporary style is characterized by round and soft lines with lots of natural elements touched by bold colours. Slim silhouettes and clean lines shape the space whereas vibrant hues or geometric patterns accessorise the design. Rugs are always a cool addition especially those with strong popping colours.
Romantic Living Room
As the name suggests, the romantic design relaxes the senses and makes the room comfortable. It adds a femininity factor to the room with a pastel colour scheme and sheer, light fabrics. Everything soft and smooth goes along with this style so silk, chenille, matelasse and velvet are perfect to use for pillows or throws. In addition, adding a little bit of sparkle instantly gives the room a romantic vibe, thus crystal and silver accents are always a safe choice.
Eclectic Living Room
Eclectic is a style that encompasses elements from all styles. So, if you are not sure about which style to pick, take a risk and go for eclectic. Not only is a mixture of elements but also it is a mixture of periods, textures, finishes and colours. The finished result creates a lively atmosphere.
Mediterranean Living Room
Colourful details inspired by the Mediterranean Sea with ornate furniture and textured walls are the definition of this style. Even though the most common colour is blue as a mirror to the sea and sky, lavender and yellow hues can be a common sight as well. In addition, the most popular Mediterranean features are the mosaic tiles in kitchen backsplashes or on the floor.
Traditional Living Room
The traditional style brings comfort above all the other features. It showcases consistency and familiarity and it is a look that you expect to see when you step into a living room that is described as timeless but fresh. When it comes to the colours, neutral tones with colourful hues is the right choice and you can go even further by enhancing these hues with a metallic and warm wood undertone.
Midcentury Modern Living Room
This design is all about simplicity and natural shapes. Ample windows, open floor plans and bring in the outdoors in the living space are elements that midcentury modern can’t do without. A popular household object such as the popular Eames chair and Howard Miller sunburst clock are simply a must.
Cottage Living Room
When you think of rustically mixed with urban you get cottage design. It is a comfortable style with lots of pastel colours, botanical infusions and painted furniture with weathered finishes. Iron and wicker chairs are ever present and stylish floral coverings bring passion to the place. Even if the furniture is a little worn out, it will fit perfectly in the cottage-style space.
The bottom line is that virtual staging can enable you to showcase all these options to your potential buyer. Instead of explaining them in words you can make them see and imagine living there effortlessly.
