Tips for Home Staging

Staging is the process of highlighting your home’s strengths and tone down its weaknesses so that it can appeal to the greatest number of home buyers.  Here are the following home staging tips that you can do: 

Declutter 

The simplest and the least expensive thing to do in home staging is to get rid of the clutter. To declutter means you are removing the things that the new owner will no longer need. By doing this, you are creating more space for the new owner that he can use to put his own things. It is also one way to make the rooms look organized and refreshing in the eyes.  The rooms look bigger when it is free from clutters. 

Arranging the furniture 

There is a misconception that the furniture that is pushed against the walls make the room looks bigger. This isn’t always the case. Instead, the room actually looked bigger if the furniture is floating away from the walls. You can group the sofas and chairs as if they are inviting you and your guest for a great conversation. Each furniture must have a function in the room and should direct a smooth flow of traffic inside the house. 

Arrange items artistically 

There are just so many things that you can do with furniture, artwork, and accessories to make the room look amazing. Furniture designed to work in the living room can also look good in the bedroom. Play around with different furniture, artwork, and other fixtures to get the right mix of color, height, and design. 

Room Transformations 

Re-purpose a room into something else. For example, if you have a junk room, why not turn it into a comfy reading nook? All you need is a small armchair, with a small table and lamp and you can enjoy your new cozy spot. Another good idea is to cover the old walls on the basement with cheap wallpapers, lay inexpensive rubber padding and toss in a few pillows and you’ll get a new meditation room. 

Home Lighting 

Home lighting has a huge effect on the ambiance of the room. It makes the room look warm and welcoming. Check if your room is properly lighted. If not, the simple remedy is to increase the wattage in your lamps and fixtures. The right lighting must be 100 watts for every 50 square feet. It will be better if a room has two to three types of lightings to accommodate the intensity of light needed depending on the situation.
