Three key ideas (and budget conscious) to keep in mind are:
Shops and restaurants have the key to making people want to buy, a correct presentation makes people's imagination and desire to know something awaken. That's why the front of a restaurant shows a great design or a table set by candlelight, and why shop windows use striking design elements and small scenes as background. All these actions create an emotional connection between customers and things for sale.
Home staging performs the same function, making a house for sale visually attractive and thus awaken the imagination of buyers. It is of vital importance in the rooms where daily life occurs, such as living rooms and other spaces for family coexistence. The goal is for prospective buyers to say: "We could host everyone for the holidays so easily here!" Or "Imagine resting in front of this fireplace, dogs would love it too!" You have to keep in mind some basic ideas to follow in the staging of your living room, but also some specific tricks to make it look best.
- Declutter: needs an open and spacious appearance, to emphasize the characteristics and lifestyle of the house with a minimalist decoration. The surfaces should be clean, almost without decoration, the shelves partially filled and the right amount of furniture. The accessories must make a statement, not fill the space.
- Depersonalize: a buyer can not imagine living there if personal items from the previous owner. Along with clutter, remove personal things, such as photos and collections, from the view.
- Deep cleaning: it is important to consider cleanliness to offer a great first impression. Find a cleaning company that has special cleaning services for the sale of houses, but can also do DIY. That is able to leave perfectly from the roof to the ground. Scrub the walls and windows. Vacuum the carpets. Get to leave each corner very clean and repair each crack.
Friendly budget tips:
As a first step we recommend that you use the color effectively based on the room in the house. For walls and furniture, the neutrals provide a comfortable simplicity without risks. But remember that you do not have to paint all white if you want to add a touch of warmth, there are many attractive neutral tones available. The brighter color should be limited to accessories, such as a piece of signature art or a variety of dark green pillows. Use colored "pops" to direct attention, add visual appeal and an insert that "wow" factor bit. Plants and flowers have the same effect and add life.
Second, create small stagings, to show the lifestyle so that buyers want to sit in their living room. Choose areas that are close to windows, lighting or excellent features, then organize furniture and other items to suggest wonderful experiences. For example, the corner where the shelves meet the window becomes a reading corner with an armchair. A cup of tea and a nice book on a tray can complete the vignette. The fireplace area can invite a cozy conversation or relax with a sofa and chairs. Or anchor around a view, or just a beautiful table with a vase of flowers and some interesting objects. Keep the decoration restricted, with impersonal elements grouped in odd numbers.
Third, remember there are professionals to help. First-time users may not know how to properly position furniture or decoration. Often, we do not have the objectivity to see our own possessions as a stranger can. Local staging can offer advice, verify your work after your DIY or do the staging for you. They have the experience, the talent and the supplies for a perfect staging. Request reliable recommendations from your real estate agent or explore online stagers sites.
