Staging a Sophisticated Hinsdale Home on McKinley Lane
When placing a luxury property on the market, it’s important to make sure every room captures the lifestyle a buyer could led if they purchase this home. Not only does every detail need to be immaculate, but the simple act of staging a luxury home must suggest no expense was without reason in order to lure the perfect buyer home.
This is especially true when it comes to luxury listings like this one just over 8000 square feet where every aspect of the property — from the unique amenities to how you present them — must be noticeably refined.
Here at Chicagoland Home Staging we know luxury homebuyers have unique perspectives and preferences. Thus, the staging strategies our team uses for this type of property are different from ordinary homes.
Emphasize Selling a Lifestyle
Homebuyers shopping for a luxury home are looking for a certain lifestyle. Our team takes into account the demographics and psychographics a potential buyer will have before finalizing our design style. For instance, staging this porch area that connects the interior with an outdoor oasis in the backyard. This spot is key to staging by suggesting the massive entertaining space and BBQ area will be available for Fall football parties, as the kids enjoy the fun sports court just steps away.
Highlight Quality Features
Luxury homes need a luxury kitchen, and this one does not disappoint. This kitchen features Carrera marble countertops, custom white cabinetry, decorative ceiling, butler pantry with wet bar, walk-in pantry, professional grade appliances, an island with breakfast bar and a sunny breakfast room with a multitude of windows overlooking the beautiful backyard.
Our team chose to minimize furnishings in this room to let this chef’s kitchen speak for itself. We brought in organic accessories on the countertops, styled the white dinnerware and serveware behind the glass cabinets and anchored the kitchen island with a contrasting colored counter stools.
Create a Comfortable Setting
Both communal living spaces in this property now offer the important elements of luxury including quality, comfort, and elegance. These high volume spaces encourage togetherness while providing enough space to spread out that favors couture finishes to compliment the floor plan balancing the formal and informal living spaces.
The plan was simple create symmetrical spaces that defined the rooms without outshining the luxurious features these rooms have including built-ins, fireplaces and floor to ceiling windows with glass doors that open to the porch. Neutral colors also allowed the features of these rooms to shine.
Captivating an Exclusive Retreat
The master suite, often neglected by homeowners as the catch all room of personal items and mementos, should be cleared of clutter to make room for a stately, calm design.
Notice our team decided on a large tufted headboard to command attention and create drama. We used neutral bedding with a lavish design, and lots of pillows to instill the sense of coziness.
Impeccable attention to detail and high-end finishes reinforce the feeling of luxury and timelessness permeating throughout the home such as walnut hardwood floors, designer lighting and exquisite millwork.
When arranging your furniture, remember to create a natural flow of furniture pieces and refrain from placing too much furniture in any one area of your luxury home. This will help guide your buyers through your luxury home with grace.
