10 Tips For Home Staging

The appearance of your home is so important while it’s on the market. Your house should be a clean slate so potential buyers can imagine themselves living there. We do recommend using professionals but here are some tips to help you get started!

Here are 10 decor tips for staging your home to sell:


Paint Colours

The colours used within your home can really make or break the appeal of a room as it’s crucial that potential buyers can envision themselves living in your house. A lot of bright or clashing colours can make this hard for buyers. Neutral, soft, muted colours work best especially with accent pieces like throw pillows, blankets, and rugs.



Good lighting will bring any room to life! Open curtains and allow the natural light to flow throughout the room and update any outdated light fixtures and light bulbs. 



Keep it simple! Instead of imagining their personal belongings in the home, potential buyers can become focused on the wrong things. Make them feel as if they already live there with removing personal items. 


Furniture Arrangements

Arranging furniture can make a room seem more inviting to potential buyers. If you have any old furniture that seems out of place, we recommend updating it. Try hiring a professional stager or renting new furniture. 



Artwork styled correctly can complete a room. Try to find more simple, modern artwork that fits in with your decor. 


Flowers and Greenery

Fresh flowers and greenery can add a burst of colour, add personality to a room, enhance the lovely fragrance, and can even be used as a focal point. 


Styling Tables

Styling tables is a fun way to bring in different design elements from your home. Placemats, plate settings and florals can really change the look of the room. 



Who doesn’t love a good accessory!? Add in some personality with thoughtful accessories. Use items such as throw pillows, lamps, blankets, books, plants, rugs, candles and seasonal decor. 


Deep Clean

One of the most important steps prior to listing your home is a deep clean! Potential buyers will be looking at every part of your home so make sure you clean everything!
