This guide to home staging tips from the experts has been curated for beginners to give you some of the most important information you can have right out of the starting gate.
With home staging, one of the first words you will hear is “depersonalize.” This is the process of essentially finding a new identity for your home and each room in it.
For instance, if you’re a big fan of movies, you may have posters and collectibles lining the walls. Plus, your home contains components like furniture and paint choices that were all chosen to suit your personal taste. By depersonalizing, you strip your personality out of the home to give potential buyers a clean slate for when they see the property for the first time.
That way, it will provide a clean slate for buyers to imagine themselves in your home as they walk through it. To depersonalize, you’ll have to do activities like repaint and rearrange rooms, replace furniture, and remove personal photos.
When home staging, you have to make sure that the house is clean for guests. Not just your average cleaning either—a deep, thorough cleaning. Dust and scrub down every nook and cranny of your home. If each room ends up with a strong, lingering smell of cleaning chemicals, don’t worry. You can create a warm, inviting environment with the help of scented candles. On the other hand, if you like to bake, you can whip up a fresh batch of cookies to add a sweet, nostalgic aroma to the house.
You might not realize it, but mirrors have a major effect on any room you place them in. Adding mirrors to a room makes the space, even if it’s a tiny room, look larger. Plus, if you have windows in the room, the reflective nature of the mirrors will help amplify the natural light entering, as well as offer a beautiful view of the outside. Adding one or multiple mirrors to a room will create a visually appealing environment for potential buyers.
Now that you have some home staging tips from the experts, you’re ready to take on a staging project of your own. If you’re in need of a service for home staging in Texas, Traditions Interiors can help you out. We’ll show you these principles above, and many more, in action to help you enhance your property for potential buyers.
