Why Your DIY Styling Approach to Home Staging Should Not Work Away with Pillows?

Would you be pleased to see your living room if you will have it reduced to a 2” x 3” 2-dimensional depiction and view it on your mobile phone device? Probably you won’t see that much, right? 

Much of the important details would likely go missing and what you will have is more of  “visual clutters”. If this is so, then your home will be seen as a “less calming” space and if you will take photos of it, the captured images, needless to say, will be less interesting, too. 

It will be hard to draw in potential buyers if you will have those photos posted online. Potential buyers won’t be as keen or eager to take a first-hand look at it.  This is where you can have those dainty-looking, fluffy pillows put into action. At this point in time, they should come to the rescue.

There are a whole lot of things that you will need to take into account first before you can have your eyes on the pillows, but it is certain to be the most fun. But we dare say that you start to look at your throw pillows in a different light. Try to look at them as if they are the icing on your cake.

If your living room is uninviting adding a few throw pillows will add character to your sofa. It will elevate how its aesthetic appeal and thus will be more interesting to potential buyers. The element of interest is something you can’t work without here, especially if you are intending to market your home on the online property selling platforms. 

And if people are drawn into your home’s online photos, there is a good chance that they will want to see it and everything it has to offer in person. If this happens, you know that you have increased your chances of securing a sale soon.  

Check out the following points below and use them as your guidelines on deciding what to add or incorporate to each area of your house.

1. If you want to revamp your living room, particularly the sofa itself, we advise you to first expunge it from unnecessary items that originally came with it. Usually, they are very symmetrical or their color coordination is just too empowering.  

2. In staging a home, balance is not always everything. We suggest that you veer away from that boxed way of thinking and be more radical in your DIY styling or designing efforts. In what sense? Like for instance, on your sofa put at least 3 throw pillows in one corner then only one on the opposite. 

The goal here is not to put balance, hence creating interest. This will allow you to direct the eyes of an onlooker from one side to the other. This is a simple way of making everything seem like they are a 3-dimensional arrangement, and not just a run off the mill, flat photo, which will give it a bland appeal.

3. Find some good pieces of throw pillows that come with remarkable texture such as brocade fabrics, knotted finish, or any other extraordinary embellishments that you may come across with. 

The end goal here is to make a standout look with the help of these remarkable textures. Such textures will help in adding a new dimension to your sofa and ultimately you will be capturing all that in the photos. 

4. Buy new pieces of classy, throw pillows. Fresh and new throw pillows will effortlessly wield magic on a sofa. They work like new paint and they never fail in giving any room in your house a much-needed lift and oomph. 

5. Go for some contrast of bold colors. In order to draw together colors from your artwork or rug, you can achieve this with a single bold pillow. This will help in directing the eyes of anyone looking at the photo and draw them to all the different places that you want to highlight. 

For instance, if your living room’s theme colors are cream and grey, an orange throw pillow on your sofa will be eye-catching. 

It will send your attention to the orange vases that you have on, say, the bookcase near your coffee table. This is what you want to achieve so that your potential buyers will be enticed and will be wanting to see more. 

A brightly colored pillow can easily grab the attention of anyone, that is a fact. Therefore, make no reservations about it. Get bold on this aspect when incorporating throw pillows into your home staging ideas. Allow your choice pieces and your home staging DIY styling approach to do the talking for you.
