Home Staging? What is it?

So, what is home staging? Also known as real estate staging, real estate enhancement, or house fluffing. It’s a way of making an unfurnished home appear lived in…

  • it’s a way for home sellers to attract more home buyers to a house for sale

The main goal is to make a home buyer feel comfortable when he or she tours a house for sale. This act is typically common because it gives the customer a clear idea of how furniture could be arranged in the home and the amount of space available when it is fully furnished.

However, multiple companies offer home staging services. What these companies do is bring their accessories and furniture and use it to stage the property.

However, according to real estate experts, staging is not decorating. It is more of depersonalizing a home so that potential buyers can picture themselves in it.

Keep in mind, you can do this yourself if you only need to stage one room. In this case, you can shop at a vintage or retro store for staging furniture and other furnishings.

  • Visit Barbara Jean’s Antiques and Collectibles and take a look around for vintage and retro items.
  • Barbara Jean’s Antiques and Collectibles is the place to find home staging furniture for sale.

Staging Techniques

There is so much to staging other than just cleaning and repainting. To take your house to the top level in the real estate for sale market, you can try to make your home brighter and bigger and bring out the positive aspects of the house through staging.

It is all about bringing a sense of potential and possibility and creating an inviting home by generating a mood.

  • Look at your house closely.

Consider finding the best feature of each room and how to best make it stand out. Think about the kind of feeling you want to bring out to the potential buyers as they walk into the house and how you can best create that sense.

You can also consider buying antiques and collectibles to stage just one room.

Why does home staging work?

Often, most home buyers shop with logic but often buy on emotion. Many people have bought houses because the house “just feels right” overlooking the fact that it may not have met the buyers listed criteria. Home staging tries to create this emotional feeling with buyers.

Home goods? What are they?

Home goods are things that are purchased for use in domestic life. In other words, home life. It could be shampoo or a rug. It could be curtains or a coffee table and lampstand.

It is everything that a happy homemaker might love and enjoy at home. Home goods serve a practical function but are ultimately about comfort and pleasure. Many are very attractive to look at.

It is a very broad category that can be subdivided into the various dedicated spaces of the home. There are home goods…

  • for the bathroom
  • for the bedroom
  • furnishings for the living room
  • furnishings for the dining room

There is equipment for the garden or growing plants indoors. Many stores have rather specific things in mind when they refer to a home good, but other stores will cram every thing under the word “home goods“.

Home goods are everything that you use in your daily life. It can even be home office furniture since most everyone has a computer these days. These goods can be found in all types stores and also by ordering online. There are so many resources that it defines everyday merchandise. It is one of the biggest and most competitive retail markets.

This means that sometimes it can be tough to sort through all the products offered to find something that is very special to you. On the other hand, sometimes it is not difficult to find a good deal. Since many stores can be overstocked, they frequently put things on sale, and these are opportunities to jump on. An entire cook set might be had for under a hundred dollars when previously it was a high-priced name brand.

If you are looking for one-of-a-kind and unique home goods, you should shop at antique and collectible stores like Barbara Jean’s Antiques and Collectibles.

Comparison shopping and looking for bargains is a great tradition. It is so common that even upper-middle-class families do it as if it were a miniature profession. For someone with a less impressive salary, it can be wonderful way to save money.

In the end, the home goods that you purchase will be a trade-off between money and luxury. A generic set of cooking equipment will do the same job, but might not be as attractive or as impressive to friends.

Some appliances are higher quality or made from more appealing materials. A bigger television makes a living room seem serious but tends to be costly. The homeowner must decide how to fill their house, with all the pros and cons of each option.

Antiques and collectibles can be very attractive and very impressive to friends.

What's The Difference?

There has been a debate for years of what an antique is, as some people say that an antique is a considerably aged object valued for its artistic and historical significance.

Usually the term refers to objects that are more than hundred years old. Some antique and collectible dealers have attempted to lower the standards of an antique as they believe that items that are over fifty years old should be considered as antique.

However, some antique dealers say that the fifty years definition lowers its standard to a point where a trader would sell collectibles under the name of antique. This leads us to the definition of collectible.

Collectible and Vintage definition

A collectible is a valuable object that is less than hundred years old. It is distinguished from an antique for an antique is more than a hundred years old.

Another word, Vintage, is a term initially applied to the age of a wine bottle. The name was hijacked and is used now to describe an item that is less than twenty-five years.

Vintage was applied in the period of between 1960-1979. However, it should be noted that antique and collectible labels have no real effect on an item’s value as the value is determined more by the buyer (you).

There are rare antiques that are sold for less than new collectibles. This is because there is less demand for some types of antiques and high demand for some types of new collectibles.


When you are buying antiques and collectibles, the only thing that really matters is that you are happy with your purchase.

Antique and collectible stores are plentiful and each store has different types of items for sale. It’s best to visit a few stores. Exploring and discovering new items is fun!


When comparing antiques and collectibles, once again, the only thing that really matters is that you are happy with your purchase.
