Mirror, Mirror on the Wall; You Weren’t That Pretty After All…

Simi Valley / Wood Ranch Home staging

I could have cropped this picture down but I wanted to show the true SIZE and SCALE  of this massive inset mirror.  Yep, that’s me with the flash standing all the way back at the front door. The previous owners installed this and the current owners have never liked it; yet never knew what to do with it.  I know it’s good Feng Shui to have a mirror facing the entrance of the front door, but this is over-kill.

Now these Home Owners are ready to SELL (they recently closed escrow on their next home) and called in Platinum Home Staging, Inc. to assist them in addressing all the “things”  THEY as owners never liked in the home.  They wanted to remove ALL negative vibes from this Simi Valley Woodranch home from ANY prospective buyers:  so here is what we did.

Simi Valley / Wood Ranch Home staging

No this is not photo-shopped, we hung a large painting IN FRONT of the mirror (see the small chains from the top corners of the painting?)  By doing this it now essentially frames the painting and the painting brings the mirror down to an acceptable scale.  No longer will every prospective buyers be greeted by an entire mirror image of them-self, but with the potential of this beautiful home.  This painting was actually hanging over the fireplace in the front living room for 7 years, “…and not one time did anyone ever comment on it.  Now every person who walks into the home says how amazing it is.”

This is also a great trick in bathrooms, bedrooms or gym rooms.  For information on how to do this yourself, click here.

    Wonderful treatment for an eyesore. If I had a dime for every home that I’ve seen tons of mirror in – I’d be fabulously weathy. Another great idea for bathroom mirrors is to surround it with beautiful moldings.
