Art is one of the most important finishing touches in decorating and staging a home. For a personal residence, it is all about choosing something that personally speaks to you. When it comes to art for staging homes, however, it’s more about creating an atmosphere that will inspire buyers and capture the essence of the home.
The best art for home staging will compliment the home it’s placed in while not distracting from the home itself. It should be subtle but attractive to the eye. Home staging art will enhance each space and help bring out the best features of the home, serving the overall story of the property. The wrong art can create a dissonance that will make everything feel a little off, while the right art for homes can make everything come alive and feel truly complete.
When choosing art for home staging, you’ll want to look for the following things:
- Art that is neutral and doesn’t portray anything that could potentially be offensive or off-putting to anyone
- Art that flows with the neutral color scheme recommended for home staging, unless it’s a small pop of color that suits other subtle accents you’ve introduced into the décor
- Art that compliments the overall style of the home, such as contemporary, traditional, Mediterranean, craftsman, etc.
- Art that fits the scale of the space, i.e. isn’t dwarfed by high ceilings or overpowering in a smaller room
- Art that isn’t too busy or eye-catching that could distract buyers from what you really want them to be focusing on, which is the home itself
