Staging Secrets: How Do You Enlarge a Space?

Oversized furniture and too much clutter can instantly make a small space seem even smaller. But buyers often say they want a spacious, cozy home — not a small, cramped one. So how do you show off a home’s space in your listings or staged properties?

I’m looking for your best staging tip for capturing a room’s space. How do you make it look roomier, longer, or wider? Send your tip, along with any photo illustrating your tip, to Melissa Tracey at mtracey@realtors.org. Please include your name, company, and city and state.

Some of your best examples will be featured in an upcoming slideshow at REALTOR® Magazine online.
