Why Are Stagers Not Using Drapery?
Q: Christine, Bill here in Calgary Alberta.
My question is simply about drapery. I don’t profess to be a decorator or even have a decorator bone in my body but I have been a real estate agent for 15 years. We have a CSP stager in our office who stages all the listings (she does a great job), however I have noticed she rarely If ever uses drapes. Aren’t they supposed to add softness to a room?
A: Hi Bill, Thanks for the question, it really is about the feel of the whole room and what are you selling. Windows are a feature of property so covering them up with drapery seems counterproductive to me. General rule of thumb for us is “better no drapery than the wrong drapery” . Selling is about how the rooms feel vs. focusing on looks so if the room feels naked then drapery panels may help. It’s on a room by room/house by house basis though.

This year, I enrolled in the course again as a refresher, and …
