I was fooling around with Photoshop today and I came across an idea for a quick teaching tool for why staging works. I took a badly staged room and then I posterized it in Photoshop.
The room is not appealing at all in the photo and it looks pretty bad as a poster! It looks like a messy hovel. Why would you want to purchase a home like that...& why would you want to buy a poster that looks like that!
Then I took a room that is styled and staged beautifully - and posterized that.
I could see this as artwork in my home. It's something I would purchase. I love the symmetry of the room and it just looks like I could relax and unwind in this place.
Sometimes, as homeowners, we don't see our homes as they really are because we are so used to seeing our rooms day after day. Making a poster out of a room in your home may help you to see it in a different light...how buyers see your home!
