Submitting Your Staging / Design Project for the Home Tour!
Hi there, thank you so much for applying!
Our goal with this home tour series is to educate consumers and realtors, showcase the power of home staging and feature some awesome stagers in our industry.
While we primarily focusing on showcasing staged homes, if you have a successful remodel or design project that will be a good fit, we would love to showcase your project.
To give the readers a full idea of what the home is like, we ask a minimum submission of TEN photos, with a maximum of 30 photos.
Types of photos to submit:
Before and after: these are fabulous and will give readers a clear idea of how transformative home staging is. Please make sure they are shot in the same angle or as close as possible and label your photos.
After photos: overall room shots, vignettes, table top, etc.
Don’t forget exterior photos! It would especially nice to be able to see the exterior of the home.
Please send us at least one after photo per room. We need to be able to tell the story of the home. Just having photos of one room or two will not make a home tour.
The photos should be clearly labeled: property name and what room is it. For example: Farmhouse Living Room Before.
The photos you are submitting must be shot by a professional photographer and you have their permissions to submit their photos for the feature.
We do not accept photos that have watermarks.
We require the photos to be at least 1500px wide for the website. Please email us your photos at contribute (at) staged4more (dot) com via email or a program like Google Drive or WeTransfer.
If you are submitting multiple properties, please fill out one questionnaire per property and send all the photos at once in one email. (It’s very difficult for us to sort through photos if you are sending the photos in multiple emails, especially we are not as familiar with the property as you are.)
We recommend putting all of the photos you want to submit for one property into a folder, zip it, and email it to us or upload that to a service like WeTransfer or Dropbox to email to us.
While we would love to feature every submission, it is our responsibilities to our readers to make sure we publish the best projects possible. Here are some common reasons why submissions are rejected:
You didn’t follow our submission guidelines. For example, the photos are poorly labeled and we cannot make heads or tails of them. Your project is very dear to you and you are familiar with it, but we are not. So it can be difficult for us to figure out what exactly are we looking at.
The photos are not shot by a professional. The photos are often too dark, too over-exposed, not properly composed, not presenting the home in the best light possible.
The results are not very obvious.
The photos only show vignettes, but there are no overall room shots. This makes it difficult for us to tell a story about the home.
