Home Staging Tips

Whether you’re a seasoned home stager, or new to the game, we know that home staging is about setting the scene and helping buyers imagine themselves living comfortably in the property. So, these seven home staging tips will help showcase a property in the best light, or might just get you out of a pinch. Let’s get into 7 home staging strategies to impress!

1. Use a Rug in the Lounge Room

The lounge room is the heart of the home, and a well-placed rug can enhance its overall look and feel. Layering with rugs adds depth and warmth to a space. This helps to create a cosy atmosphere that invites potential buyers to envision themselves relaxing in the room. Choose a rug that complements your furniture and works well within the space!

2. Big Wall? Big Art!

Don’t let a large, empty wall make your room feel incomplete. Instead, opt for oversized artwork that fills the space and adds a focal point. Large art pieces can spruce up a room, transforming it from plain to captivating. When styling for sale, consider artwork that complements your overall aesthetic and is appealing to a wide range of buyers. But also consider the space, if you add too much art to a room it can feel overwhelming and cluttered. So try to find the perfect balance between a focal point and space.

3. Cool White Bulbs

Lighting can make or break the ambiance of a room, especially when it comes to photography. While warm bulbs give off a cosy yellow light, they don’t photograph particularly well. Instead, opt for cool white bulbs as they produce a cleaner and more natural light that captures the true colours in your space. Good lighting can make your rooms look more spacious, inviting and appealing both in person and in listing photos.

4. Ice Cubes for Carpet Indents

Carpet indents can be a common issue, especially in high-traffic areas. Fortunately, there’s a simple trick to fix them. It might sound strange but this trick works wonders! So, grab a few ice cubes and place them on the indented areas. As the ice melts (if you’re impatient, use a hair dryer!), it will help the carpet fibres recover their shape. Once melted, give the area a good vacuum, and repeat the process if necessary. This quick fix will have your carpets looking refreshed in no time!

5. Mirrors: Artwork Alternative & Space Enhancer

If your living area feels a bit busy or lacks natural light, mirrors will work wonders. They serve as versatile decorative pieces that can not only stand in for artwork, but also reflect light to create an illusion of spaciousness. Strategically placing mirrors on walls opposite windows or near light sources can brighten up the room and make it appear larger and more inviting.

6. Euro Pillows for a Touch of Luxury

Bedrooms should exude comfort and luxury, and using Euro pillows can help you achieve just that. These large square pillows add a touch of elegance and height to the bed, giving it a plush and inviting look. Because of their height, Euro pillows can also serve as a substitute for a bedhead, adding a stylish and refined touch to your bedroom staging.

7. Brighten Up with Glass Top Tables

To create a sense of openness and brightness in your home, consider incorporating glass top tables into your staging. Glass reflects light, making the space feel larger and more vibrant. Whether it’s a coffee table in the living room or a dining table in the eating area, a glass top table can be an excellent choice to enhance the overall aesthetic and appeal of your home.
