HOME STAGING

5 Interesting Ways
to Stage Your Home.

Staging a home for potential buyers is important because it allows the home to be presented in its best light and can help potential buyers to better visualise the potential of the home. Staging can make a home appear more spacious, updated, and inviting. It can also help to emphasise architectural features and highlight any unique characteristics of the home. By staging a home, sellers may be able to attract more buyers, receive higher offers, and sell their home faster.

If you have been thinking of re-organising your interior to make it look more appealing to target homebuyers, here are some tips to start with:

#1 Rearrange furniture to make better use of space.

Moving furniture to different areas of the room can help to create a new look and feel to the space. Installing different types of lighting, changing out window treatments, painting walls, and adding new decor can also help to diversify and liven up the look and feel of your home.

#2 Utilise natural light to bring out the best in every room.

Natural light can make a room appear larger, brighter, and more inviting. To maximise the potential of natural light, open curtains, draw back window coverings, and strategically position mirrors to reflect the light. For example, mirrors can be placed opposite windows to reflect light back into the room, which helps to brighten and open up the space. Use lamps and light fixtures to highlight architectural features, such as a fireplace or built-in bookshelves.

#3 Create an inviting area for guests to relax in.

Your first priority should be to choose comfortable seating. Select seating that is cosy and inviting, such as a plush sectional sofa or plush armchairs. Add a few accents by placing a side table, area rug, and a few accent pillows to complete the look. Lamps around the area also create a warm atmosphere. You may also decorate your home with a few family photos or framed art pieces on the walls to make it feel personal and welcoming.

#4 Showcase unique pieces of furniture or artwork.

These aesthetic furniture pieces could be any of the following:

  • Hand-carved wooden coffee table
  • Vintage-style wall mirror with intricate metal frame
  • Antique chandelier with crystal drops
  • Hand-painted abstract oil painting
  • Reclaimed wood bench with metal accents
  • Bohemian-style wall tapestry
  • Industrial-style metal shelf
  • Unique china cabinet with carved details
  • Mid-century modern armchair
  • Oversized floor vase with colourful glaze

#5 Add plants or flowers to bring in a touch of nature.

Adding plants or flowers can brighten up any space and bring a natural, inviting feel. To do so, start by selecting plants and flowers that fit the space and the season. Place them in appropriate containers or pots and arrange them in a way that complements the space. Consider where the best light source is for each plant or flower and make sure to water them regularly. With a few plants and flowers in the space, you can give it a warm, inviting atmosphere that encourages relaxation and enjoyment.

Key Takeaway

Remember to stage your home if you want to attract the right buyers. Even something as simple as removing clutter, rearranging furniture, and adding decorations that give the space a fresh, inviting look. Consider painting the walls, repairing any broken fixtures, and making sure that the windows are clean. Your goal in staging your home is to help potential buyers see your home as a place they can live in.
