HOME STAGING IS THE ART of maximising the desirability of a home by showcasing the key selling features of a property and minimising the effects of a property’s negative aspects.

It´s the science of styling – the professional presentation of a property designed to appeal to the highest number of potential buyers, to sell more quickly and maximise the selling price.

Home staging gives prospective buyers a better sense of room sizes and options for furnishings, layouts, and colour schemes, helping you find a suitable buyer more quickly.

But what are the benefits of home staging for homeowners in Orihuela Costa, and how does it work for properties on the Spanish property market?

The property in Torrevieja, Costa Blanca

In this article, we’ll look at the practical benefits of home staging with an example of a property that’s on the market right now, styled by Costa Blanca Home Staging.

Sporting a magnificent beachfront location just 600m from the water’s edge, this apartment in Playa Mar Azul on the outskirts of Torrevieja enjoys commanding views over the adjacent Mediterranean Sea.

But the property had somewhat lost its shine and needed the application of innovation and creativity to restore its character. So it’s time to spruce up the property and witness the stunning transformation.

The main living area benefits from a generous size, with dual aspect windows and patio doors introducing plenty of light into the room. It packs oodles of potential, and it is undoubtedly one of the main selling features of the home.

Bringing style, light and colour to your canvas

It’s the perfect blank canvas and the addition of some modern furniture adds utility to the space. Keeping the area around the patio doors naturally leads the eye to the private balcony and that idyllic panoramic Mediterranean Sea view.

The dining area is located immediately adjacent to the kitchen and has a floor-to-ceiling picture window replete with more glorious views. The ideal spot for entertaining or dining with family and friends.

Plants and scatter cushions bring life and colour to an otherwise empty void, and the contemporary ornate ceiling light serves as a captivating and fitting centrepiece for this thoroughly chic upmarket beach apartment.

When it comes to kitchens, less is more. The kitchen cabinets have been retained, but those outdated colours are gone. Instead, pure white colours now dominate this culinary creative area.

Breathing new life into old spaces

The kitchen benefits from all new high-quality domestic appliances, and the old door handles have been replaced with modern contrasting door furniture to create a clean, modern, elegant kitchen that enhances the quality of the living area.

The photo above provides a stark illustration of the importance of details. For instance, a room without a bed has no defined purpose, and more importantly, potential buyers won’t be able to imagine themselves living there.

It’s the furnishings that define a room, and carefully home staging the space makes it immediately clear that, for instance, a guest bedroom has plenty of room for two single beds, or perhaps one double bed.

Removing the bidet frees up space and declutters the main bathroom. The addition of some bathroom furniture doesn’t just look great, but it adds convenient storage for personal care items and accessories.

Large mirrors improve the feeling of spaciousness, and carefully placed plants bring a sense of warmth and nature to what were very cold-feeling and bare rooms.

Finally, add a few attentive personal touches, a little creative photography, and some innovative marketing, and we think this beautiful home will find new owners in no time.
