All I did was....Home Staging Success Stories

Is staging bookcases a lost cause and not worth it?

Staging over 500 homes per year in Toronto one of my favourite things to do is stage book cases. Here are a few recent homes that allowed for this indulgence.

Some say books are a thing of the past. They skip staging them altogether or put so few items in the book case that it emphasizes the emptiness of the home.


I believe books give a home a soul and character, especially if the home is vacant.

Investment, minimal.

Impact, priceless.

Good morning, Michelle Finnamore ... staging a bookcase is very important....there's no easier way to sabotage a staged room than to have a cluttered bookcase in that room...your eyes go right to it!!!

HI Barbara, I am sure you have seen your fair share of "overdone" book cases as we call them. We refine them to a curated look showing about 25% space in each shelf area.

Michelle ~ staging bookcases is one of my favorite staging activities.  They look so great with a mix of books, art, objects, and greenery.  Yours are great!

Hi Maureen, thank you for stopping in to see the book cases. I am thinking that you and I are book worms and that is why we get such pleasure staging book cases. As I child,  I always wished we lived in a home with a room of book cases. Now that would have been heaven for me. 

I was lucky that the family next door had a beautiful library. At 14 I was reading Ayn Rand and many other books that helped shape my world.

I love it when I get a home that has book cases! Such a fun and easy way to stage.

Hi Janelle, thank you for stopping in to see these book case displays. We are very fortunate that many homes in our area have a library/office space in them so we are able to stage book cases quite often.
