Top 5 Home Staging Tips

If done properly, home staging can make the home look much more appealing to buyers in photos and showings. Other than just the obvious tasks of cleaning, which is the first thing you should do, there are several essential steps in staging a home to sell.

 

#1 Make Obvious Purpose for The Space

An empty room makes it hard for buyers to imagine what they can use an empty space for. Put a desk in the office space, a T.V. in the family room, a chair with a reading lamp in the reading space, and twin beds in children’s bedrooms.

 

#2 Position “Floating” Furniture

It is a common mistake for sellers to think that a room looks larger by pushing all the furniture against the walls. In reality, space between furniture and walls actually opens the room up and makes it seem larger. Push your furniture away from the walls and position for conversation groups and easy traffic flow. 

 

#3 Guide Buyers’ Attention with Color Contrasts

By clever use of colors, you can control your buyer’s gaze. Red and Yellow attract attention, while blues and greens tend to be ignored. Have a beautiful kitchen? Place a bowl of yellow bananas and red apples in the middle of it. Have a boring corner of your home? Place a green potted plant there.

 

#4 Use Directed Lighting

To highlight the best features of your home, such as a beautiful fireplace, kitchen, or book case, install some directed lighting over them.

 

#5 Use “Warm” Lights

The kind of light bulb you use makes a big difference in the look and feel of your home. Soft lighting enhances the “warm” colors of you home, which influences a healthier, uplifted attitude—just what you want in a buyer. Harsh lighting will make you skin look pale, and nobody wants that. Use LED 2700-3000 K light bulbs for the best lighting.
