Sunroom staging is an important part of preparing a Florida room, three season room or enclosed porch for sale. A sunroom is always a nice addition to a home, since it creates a bright and open space to work, play or just relax. As with all areas of the property, the sunroom should be staged to sell, so that it will be measured as a huge asset to the residence, instead of just a limited use waste-of-space.
This dialog focuses on using home staging to prepare a sunroom for the sales process.
Sunroom Staging Solutions
A sunroom is always best staged in the warm and pleasant weather. This helps it to show well, since a nice day will really allow the natural light to fill the space, creating a sheltered, but seemingly outdoor look and feel.
The space inside a Florida room should be well defined, as a dedicated home office, den or media room. Since this is typically a relaxing area of the home, I generally recommend staging it as a family room. Do not place too much emphasis on electronics and furniture in this room, but instead provide simple seating, some interesting accessories and lots of open space to enjoy. A completely uncluttered design will optimize the serene atmosphere and let more of natural’s beauty enter the room.
Florida Room Staging Enhancements
Typically, sunrooms have access from inside the house and provide an exit out to the yard. Make sure to keep this traffic path open and do everything possible to highlight the view to the outdoor space.
If the weather permits and the option is available, replace windows with screens to allow the most fresh air to filter into the indoor space.
Décor in this room should be cohesive with the rest of the home, to avoid looking like an add-on or disjointed space. However, you can certainly take a few more chances with brighter colors and designs in a sunroom, since the environment should be a balance of indoors and out.
Sunroom Staging to Get the House Sold
Sunrooms can be real selling points if prepared and staged properly.
Double check to ensure that all interior and exterior seams are in good repair where the sunroom joins into the main house. Also, inspect all windows and doors for proper function and aesthetic condition. Keep window treatments in this room particularly airy and bring them up high to make the ceiling appear taller.
