From a drab apartment to a home that leaves you speechless

We are used to the concept of home staging, which allows a home to look far more appealing and functional.

This is often used when trying to rent or sell a property, by dressing the property up so that potential renters or buyers to see just how good the property could look!

The below project is the perfect example of a home staging approach. You will see how two old and dark rooms have been magically transformed, resulting in a very trendy and sophisticated apartment thanks to professionals Venduta a Prima Vista.  

These designers are experts in their field and will show you today just how beneficial home staging can be. Are you intrigued?

The outdated kitchen

Before the arrival of the designers, this house was well-maintained but very old-fashioned and outdated.

The kitchen, for example, was equipped with old and shoddy furniture. The dining area is made up of a table and wooden chairs that are very vintage—and not in the good sense!

Light and bright

There is nothing like a new coat of fresh white paint to man an environment look far more light and bright! 

The furniture has all been reused but has received a fresh coat of paint too. It has also been positioned in a more space-effective way.

Tip: Add a fresh vase of flowers to a space for a touch of natural beauty.

The gloomy dining room

The dining room was well-organized but the colours were far too dark for the size of the space. It creates a very small and cramped environment.

While each element looks beautiful in isolation, such as the rich textiles, dark brown wooden furniture and the beige walls, together they create a very grim effect.

The colour scheme

When it comes to redesigning spaces, you need to make the most of the square footage available. The dining room has been completely changed around so that every square inch can be maximized.

The table has been painted white, which makes for a much more refreshing design while the chairs that flank the table retain their vintage look and feel. This creates a very appealing design.

A sitting area gone to waste!

From this angle, we can see that apart from the table and bookshelf, this room also featured a little sitting area. The outdated patterns do nothing to enhance the look and feel of this space while it takes up way too much space!

An interactive social area

Now this is a seating area that you can be proud of. It is spacious, aesthetically appealing and functional.

The white sofa gives a modern touch to the room, contrasting beautifully with the more traditional chairs. Don't you love how the pale blue walls work in harmony with the white decor?

Musty and old

The heavy structures of the twin beds are bulky and old-fashioned. The patterns and decor are also very distracting, which doesn't allow for a very tranquil environment.

Simply charming

The two chunky beds have been replaced by a simple double bed, where only the most necessary of items are on display.

This room features a very clean, practical and simple look and plays on a contrast between white and blue. Decor elements have been very carefully selected to add charm and personality to this space.

A quirky study area

In order to maintain the vintage look and feel of the original house, a small antique desk complete with an old white wooden chair has been placed at the foot of the bed. This makes for a very impressive composition.

The bathroom before

Before the intervention of the expert, the bathroom featured no character or charm. This space clearly hadn't received any attention when it came to decor or design.

The bathroom after

With the addition of a few items, we can see how the bathroom has been completely transformed. There is no more clutter and chaos—all personal products have been stored neatly out of sight. The small decor elements and the large mirror make for a very attractive space that seems large and expansive.
