All fireplaces are not made equal, so before staging a fireplace it's vital to understand the character and highlights of the fireplace.
A Fireplace is a key element of any home (if at all there is a fireplace that is). Is it rustic with brick red basics, it it pure white, is it simplistic and modern, traditional and antique?
Then you move on to adding elements and decor to stage it well. But, first things first - no matter what we need to make sure the fireplace is clean, before we start.
Here are some tips and ideas on home staging a fireplace in a house for sale.
1. POP OF COLOR
A pop of color with glass on a white fireplace adds vibrance. It comes out great in pictures which helps market better. One can further enhance this fireplace with other elements on the wall.
2. GO GREEN
Plants almost never disappoint. Using plants to enhance a fireplace adds emotion and color.
3. ARTWORK AND CANDLES
A combination of balance with mirrored artwork which catches the buyer's eye is combined with elements of balance with dual candles. The silver candle holders in this mantle add grandeur to catch the buyer's eye.
4. WALL COLOR BLENDS
Decor which blends or adds warmth to complement the wall paint is a great element to experiment with. In this fireplace mantle the hues of the wall paint are reflected in the choice of painting and decor.
5. CONTEMPORARY ALL THE WAY
While staging a modern or contemporary home or condo it makes sense to go contemporary on the fireplace too. In this fireplace the vase with the dry long twigs arrangement complement the contemporary style.'
