Staging Trends for 2019

Staging your home can often be the difference between a successful sale and keeping your home on the market longer than you had hoped. When considering staging, you should keep in mind some of the design trends throughout the season so that your home fits in well. If you’ve never considered the benefit of staging your home, here are a few great reasons to do so, and a few trends that have hit the market this year!

What Is Staging?

Staging a home is taking it and making it look the best it can for the sale process. It’s important to keep in mind that there are two staging types to keep in mind though - partial and complete staging.

Partial Staging: This is most popular with sellers who will still be living in their home while it’s on the market. Stagers will make use of both your current furniture, but also supplement with pieces and designs of their own to fill in the gaps. This can be awesome if you are still living in your home but challenging because the designers are limited to your current style and color palette.

Complete Staging: This is a growing trend among sellers because it’s not only easy for everyone, but it’s the best way to appeal to potential buyers. Complete staging starts with a completely empty home, and then interior decorators and stagers bring in the furniture, art, decor, and accessories to make your home look the best that it can. If you aren’t going to be living in your home while selling it, this could be a perfect choice for your home.

Staging Trends for 2019

2019 Color of the Year

Blueprint, which is a stylish mid-tone blue, is described by Behr as being an honest and approachable color. This color is universally appealing, as it's "warmer than denim and softer than navy." Blueprint is able to work so well with other colors that you can layer in a second or third color to your decorating.

Black is Taking Over

Classic black is showing up in fixtures, stainless-steel appliances, and even cabinets. Black makes a strong visual statement in any room and has been found in both shiny and matte finishes. Black hardware is also becoming a strong contender against the more traditional rubbed bronze, brass, and chrome finishes.

Hardwood Flooring Is In

While carpet is still the most popular flooring option on the market, hardwood and faux wood flooring is taking the industry by force. In an effort to create a more 'natural' feel, homeowners are trending more towards less 'manufactured' looks. High variety wood looks appear more randomized, less staged, and truer to natural wood. While smooth floors remain classic, 2019 will be all about texture. Hand-scraped, wire-brushed, and distressed flooring is the new rage!


Quartz has been hitting the market in a very strong way. While you’ll see many homeowners upgrading their kitchens with quartz counters, you’ll still be seeing granite countertops in homes as well. Quartz will hit the high-end homes, but for the general public, granite is still a more cost-effective choice.
