Secrets To Home Staging

You know the importance of staging a home that’s about to hit the market, but when it comes to standing out, some homes are simply staged better than others.

So how do you take your staging game to the next level? First of all you have to look at this from the point of view of your potential buyers. You need to take your emotions and your connections out of the home so that potential buyers can picture themselves living in your home.

If you are staging your home and feel overwhelmed – contact us, we can help. If you are ready to tackle this challenge on your own, follow the steps below.

It Starts With The Right Decor:

Decor is tricky because it’s all in the eye of the beholder. Add too many items and trinkets to your home and it looks disorganized. Remove too many items and leave your place looking sparse and then it becomes dull and uninviting. Plus, it can make you look house poor which no one wants.

It’s crucial to strike that crucial balance of minimalistic originality in order to entice the majority of buyers. This will create a positive experience and allow buyers to see themselves in your home.

The most important piece of your home is that it flows. If every room in your home feels different, has a different color palette, or a different decor aspect it can be hard for potential buyers to feel continuity and it throws them off when going through our home.

Mirrors and clever furniture placement are always big hits.

Staged homes allow a person to see how spaces can be used.

Don’t forget the biggest part of your home which is outside curb appeal. What people pull up to is just as important as what people see when they get inside.

Keep It Neutral and Consistent

You may love a home that has burnt orange walls – some people will not.

If it is time to sell your home it’s best to paint it in neutral colors. You can inject splashes of color here and there in terms of textiles with pillows, throws or area rugs.

Accent colors should still be colors that instil a sense of calmness and should be appealing to a majority of prospective buyers. Colors like blue, silver and slight hints of gold accents work well.

If you don’t know what to do – Go with the less is more’ approach.  

Remove All Clutter From Your Home

If you want to earn top dollar for your home you need to remove anything you are hoarding. When people enter your home, if they see clutter everywhere it can suggest that there is not enough storage space in your home. Not only that, if you have ever entered someone’s home and there is clutter everywhere, it makes it feel dirty and unkept.

All of your floors should shine, countertops should sparkle and all clutter should be removed. Your personal items are of great importance to you. They probably have stories and memories attached to them. However, they mean nothing to the person coming to look at your home.

It’s best to keep these keepsakes out of sight. By getting rid of excess items, you’ll also make your house seem bigger, which is appealing to anyone.

The rule here – keep it super simple.
