5 Room by Room Home Staging Design Tips

If you’re thinking about putting your house on the market, one of the things that your real estate agent probably told you to do is to make sure that you properly stage your home. By making it look roomy, warm and comfortable, it’s a great way to attract prospective buyers’ attention so that your home can sell quicker.

If you’d like a few helpful tips on things that you can do to effectively stage the rooms in your house, here are five easy and proven ways to do just that.

Remove the clutter. One of the simplest ways to stage a home is to go through each room of your house and remove any clutter that might be inside of it. Remember, when prospective buyers are checking out a house, they are going to want to look into everything including closets and cabinets. So, choose to see this as a time to get rid of a few things and perhaps even have a yard sale. Yes, staging can be beneficial in many ways.

Do some painting. Something that you can do that will drastically alter the appearance of your home without you having to spend a ton of money in the process is to do a bit of painting. You can use a fresh coat of the colors you already have to make the walls look cleaner or brighter. You can paint an accent wall or paint the ceiling a bright color to give a room a bit of personality. Or you can simply try a neutral hue in the more common areas. Just make sure that you use a low VOC paint brand. It has less chemicals, which ultimately means less fumes.

Add some eco-friendly items. Now more than ever, people are looking for houses that have eco-friendly items inside of them. Not only does it raise the property value of the home, but it saves them money on energy bills too. So when it comes to your bathroom, considering adding a low-flow showerhead and toilet. And when it comes to any appliances that you might want to add, look for the kind that come with the Energy Star label. They can save up to 40 percent on energy bills.

Make the most of awkward spaces. If you were to ask someone who works atĀ Showhomes Home Staging for someĀ home staging tips, one of the things that they might advise is that you get creative with the “awkward spaces” in your house. For instance, if you happen to have a wide empty corner next to your foyer, consider putting a small chair and ottoman there. Little touches like that can give the potential new homeowners ideas of what to do after they move in.

Don’t forget the greenery. There’s something that’s very comforting about being in a home that has plants inside of it. For this reason, if you don’t already have a few in various rooms of your house, pick up some. The English ivy, Boston fern and Gerber daisy are beautiful. Plus, they help to purify the air inside of your home as well.
