Using Virtual Staging and 2018 Interior Design Trends to Sell Your Home
If you are ready to sell your home, virtual staging is a great option to help your home sell faster. With over 90 percent of home searches taking place online, having beautiful photographs of your home is vital to sparking buyer interest. Not only is virtual staging cost-effective and perfect for homes where professional staging isn’t an option, virtual staging allows you to have the hottest design trends incorporated into your home to entice buyers to want to tour your modern, beautiful home.
Here are some of the top 2018 interior design trends and how virtual staging can add these elements to your home to help it sell faster!
A Move Toward Vintage and Natural Elements with Bold, Warm Colors
Move over white-on-white kitchens, minimalism, and rose gold! The looks that were so popular in 2017 home interior are out the door because 2018 is all about warmth and cozy styles. From natural elements like reclaimed wood, rough stone, and earth tones to velvet sofas in deep reds and olive, design trends are making a clear shift toward creating spaces that feel lived in, warm, and welcoming!
Natural Elements Inspire Green Living
Reclaimed wooden furnishings, stone floors and tile, and greenery everywhere are hallmarks of 2018 interior design. With a turn toward eco-friendly design and a need for green living, younger home buyers are seeking to bring nature indoors, and they are doing it in a big way! Reclaimed wood walls, bamboo or cork flooring, and soapstone counters and sinks are popular elements that combine function with beauty.
Virtual Staging with Natural Elements: By adding lush greenery through the photographs along with furnishings made from reclaimed or weathered wood, stone centerpieces, and rugs made from natural fibers, virtual staging designers will create an earthy, eco-friendly feel throughout each photograph.
Deep, Rich Colors are Huge for 2018 Interior Design
The icy whites, cool grays, and monochromatic palettes are disappearing as deep, moody colors and warm tones are making a big splash. From Benjamin Moore’s 2018 Paint Color of the Year (Caliente – a deep, vivid red) to Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year (Ultraviolet – a dark purple with blue undertones), designers are embracing color again. From the earthy warmth of burnt yellows, olive greens, and deep reds to the jewel tones of indigo, purples, and deep jade green, interiors are going bold!
Virtual Staging with Deep Colors: No matter the paint shade on the walls or the color of the flooring, virtual staging designers can add furniture or accessories in brilliant colors that will coordinate beautifully with your current look of the home. From contrasting cool grays with deep reds or sapphire blue to bringing life to a monochromatic white room, the elements chosen will bring drama and warmth to each room.
