When it comes to staging your home for a quick sale, the right accessories can make all the difference. You want your home to look spacious and uncluttered, but that does not mean leaving your rooms empty.
If you are putting your home on the market, it is important to remove any and all clutter. Whether that means renting a storage locker or just moving a few items to the shed out back, the goal is to make the home look as large as possible.
After you have removed the clutter, it is time to bring in the accessories that can seal the deal. When staging the bedroom, a beautiful green plant or flower arrangement on the nightstand will dress up the space and give it a new elegance. A vase full of fresh flowers on the vanity will make the bathroom more beautiful while covering up unwanted odors.
Plants are not the only accessories that can make your home staging more successful. Displaying an art book and some upscale fashion magazines on the coffee table will make the space look more interesting and inviting. A well-placed tower lamp in the living room can make the entire space look more elegant.
Artwork is another vital aspect of staging your home and making it look its best. If your walls are currently home to nothing but family photographs, it is a good idea to put some of those personal items away and give the space a wider appeal.
While every well-staged home needs some artwork, what items you choose are even more important. You will want to choose artwork with a wide appeal and a neutral look and feel. Landscapes are always a good choice, as are still lifes and abstract pieces.
If you are looking for a way to dress up your bedroom, den or living room, try adding a piece of modern sculpture or an artistic vase. You do not have to spend a fortune on artwork to stage your home. Even an inexpensive piece can lend an air of elegance to your home.
The goal of staging is to make sure they love what they see. The right accessories can make all the difference.. Whether you are selling an upscale property or a starter home, every buyer who comes through will picture themselves in the space.
