The process of leasing or renting your home is hinged on how your ‘market’ your property to prospective clients. A great way to present your property in its best light is through staging. You should know that properties spend less time on the market if the staging is done right. But how is one to go about the process?
My name is Jennica George, and I’m an experienced and dedicated realtor with a passion for interior design. I am aware that many property owners do not have the experience or industry knowledge to handle the staging process. It can even be taxing and overwhelming.
In this article, I will be educating Regina property owners on the most trendy design layouts that they can implement throughout the year 2022!
The Importance of Staging Your Property
A successful staging job will leave potential buyers excited to live in the space. They’ll be able to envision their lives on the property making them more willing to place an offer. To achieve this, you need to be in tune with the needs and preferences of buyers in the market and also have a good network of suppliers and contractors in the region.

The End of an Era: Open Floor Plans
There was a time when open floor plans were all the rage in the city. To match up to the needs of the market and the populace, developers, investors, and homeowners renovated spaces to accommodate their buyers. Does this mean that an open floor plan home is at a disadvantage during the property showcase?
Not necessarily, here is where my expertise in property and interior design comes in. You don’t have to make costly renovations to your home in such a short time. I can work with temporary dividers to give the illusion of separate rooms. You will be surprised at what difference a simple addition can bring to a space.
The reason why the open floor plan is out of favor can be attributed in part to the Covid-19 pandemic. More households are in need of using the finite space for several purposes for instance needing a work-from-home office or study room for the kids.
In my experience in the Regina market, more property owners are now interested in creating a unique space that matches up to their tastes and preferences. How does that work when you will be selling your house? Consider implementing ‘Maximalism’. With this design style, you can make one-of-a-kind spaces that buyers are looking for.
I can help you create a unique space full of texture, color, and unique fittings that any prospects would want in their homes. Doing this gives your space more character and helps it stand out from other homes on the market.
The Dark Kitchen
The current kitchen design has moved away from bright and light kitchens. Similar to the trend described above, the current pool of renters is looking for a space with more ambiance and character.
These types of settings draw in a prospective clients, making them envision how they will be hosting guests. With how much time people spend in kitchens, it’s natural to want it to be a statement piece in the home. Buyers won’t find these “wow-factor” elements in bright and all-white or beige kitchens.
This 2022 trend is all about how one can introduce new elements to a space. With more people working from home it’s important to maximize the use of various rooms. For instance, maybe you want to turn your dining room into a home office during the day but don't want it to look obvious during video calls.
To appeal to clients, what I do during the staging is incorporate small interior décor fittings that can easily transform a space. I can add elements to a wall in the dining room that can serve as the perfect backdrop for a zoom meeting. This way someone won’t have to feel embarrassed by having the background of their meetings be a bed or wardrobe.
In Touch with Nature
People are starting to embrace warmer tones and colour palettes found in nature. This means incorporating more deep browns and greens into your decor and paints. Not only does this help people bring elements of the outdoors inside, but it also makes the home feel warmer and more inviting.
You can also achieve the aesthetic by adding in a few plants or artwork of natural landscapes thus mimicking the outdoor elements.
Feeling challenged to implement one or a combination of these trends in your Regina home this year? The advice described above has been tested and proven and will reduce the time your property spends on the market. However, to implement the above, you might need an expert both in real estate and design.
