Staging Your Home To Sell

Does the thought of staging your home overwhelm you? Well, you’re not alone! Many home sellers often feel a sense of anxiety when they hear that staging their home will be a necessity in selling it. However, staging your home doesn’t have to be difficult. Depending on the state of your home will vary on how much time, effort, and money you’ll have to put into your house before you sell. You can rest assure with these tips your home will feel completely new and ready to be put on the market!

Keep it Simple
The best-staged homes have a seamless color scheme throughout. The easiest way to determine if your house already has a color scheme that makes it feel as large as possible is by asking yourself, “can I move my furniture from one room to another and still have the colors looking like they belong?” If the answer is no, it’s time to replace your favorite colors and patterns with something more neutral and appealing to the general public.

Add a Pop of Color!
Now that you’ve neutralized your home, it’s feeling bigger, but a little boring. The best way to spice up a staged home is by adding a touch of color. Once you’ve determined your focal points of each room, adding a pop of color will enhance and bring attention to that area in each space. A great way to emphasize a fireplace is by staging the mantel with items that introduce a new color to the room. If the view is your focal point, window treatments that add color will pull the eye in that direction. However, in the bedrooms, a colorful headboard will add focus when it lacks architectural interest.

Cleanse and De-Clutter
If you are serious about staging and selling your home, clutter must go. Whether it’s your “style” or you just work better in clutter, others most likely won’t see it that way. Clearing away unnecessary objects and furniture in your house can create a more open space, giving your home a larger feeling to potential buyers. Along with creating a larger space, de-cluttering your home will also help you decide what’s moving with you once you’ve sold. This time is perfect to throw away old items you no longer want or need, giving yourself a good cleanse before moving into your new space.

A Master Suite for Two
When staging a Master Suite, one of the most important details is attracting and intriguing both sexes. Keeping neutrals in mind, this Suite should feel like an oasis for everyone as soon as they walk in. Staging a Master Suite can be as simple as removing personal items, de-cluttering, and dressing the bed in crisp clean white linens. By adding pops of color like a folded blanket, decorative pillows, or paintings will give this room an added sense of life, helping to tie everything together.

Turn Your Bathroom into a Spa
Staging your bathroom to feel like a spa is easier than you think! One of the best ways to enlarge a small bathroom is by installing pedestal sinks. These sinks take up very little room, giving you a completely new look in a small space. Another great way to give your bathroom a spa sense is by strategically placing spa like items within the space. By decorating the room with fluffy white towels, robes, and rugs you’ll give buyers a sense of serenity and tranquility that they can picture as their own reality. Giving off the illusion that your bathroom is a dream spa, will get your house sold faster than your neighbors!

Go Big or Store It
Oversized accessories are what give a space some weight and importance. The easiest way to determine what stays and what goes is as simple as one question, “does it add appeal to the room?” If the answer is yes, be honest with yourself. Will it attract potential buyers or will it deter their idea of what they could transform the room to be? If you’re having a hard time deciding what stays and what goes here are a few helpful tips. Clean up your bookshelves by removing small items and replace small wall art with larger pieces. Easily replace small lamps and other necessary furnishings with simple, larger ones and store small decorative items until you move to your next home.
