Home staging
is a fantastic option for anyone who is looking to sell their home. Working with the natural beauty of your home and maximizing it to your fullest potential to make the space shine is one of the best ways to attract potential buyers. In today’s article, we source inspiration from interior designers and bring to you some of the best ways you can work with your property’s strengths when home staging. Read on to find out more!

1. Boost Your Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is incredibly important as it is the first point of contact that potential buyers will have with your home. If the outside areas of your home look well maintained and taken care of, you create a fantastic first impression that entices potential buyers to want to actually look inside the home. In order to maximise your curb appeal, look towards refreshing greenery, painting the exteriors of your home and replacing old windows and doors that may look worn down over the years. A great addition to front lawns include flowers, shrubs and small trees that make your home look friendly, inviting and can make potential buyers imagine themselves living in your home.

2. Clean, Clean, Clean

Your property may be filled with exquisite furniture and decor, but if it is messy, untidy or dirty, there is no chance that potential buyers will be swayed. To showcase your home in its natural beauty, cleaning is essential. Make sure that your home is spick and span – keep clutter to a minimum in areas such as the kitchen, bathroom and living room. Let your home speak for itself, without the distractions of items and belongings strewn all over the place.

3. Use Spare Rooms Wisely

Do you have an abundance of extra space in the form of guest bedrooms? Perhaps you use some of them for storage. Whatever the case is, using your spare rooms wisely during a home staging can create a huge impact. Remove clutter from designated storage rooms and turn it into a cosy and inviting guest suite, or even into a tech savvy office that will appeal to potential buyers. Clearly defined rooms are always recommended during home staging, as it allows potential buyers to imagine what their life could be in your home. It’s simple – if you have an abundance of space, make it work for you rather than against you.

4. Replace Taps and Fittings

When it comes to the kitchen and bathrooms, replacing your tap and fittings is a fantastic way to instantly spruce the space up. No one wants to look at a rusty old tap when they’re looking for their next home. Similarly, ensuring that the dishwasher, sink and other kitchen amenities are in tip top shape is a great way to entice buyers. If budget allows, we also recommend regrouting in the bathroom and repainting to ensure it looks as fresh and sparkly.

5. Showcase The Backyard

Even if you don’t personally engage in frequent entertaining, the next family in your home may. This is why we recommend showcasing your backyard as a comfortable space that people can use to entertain guests in. Setting up a barbecue, some nice outdoor furniture and other decor that really portrays how valuable your backyard space is essential. Don’t forget to attend to the greenery and plants in the backyard in the same way you would with your front yard.

6. Showcase Eccentricities

Does your home have a few awkward corners that you’re afraid may turn potential buyers off? Well, don’t worry – you can use them to your advantage. Find ways to make those very “awkward” areas into a selling point for the next person who moves in. Constructing some DIY furniture that fits in those areas perfectly and finding unique ways to show these areas of your home off may very well prove to be your unique selling point.
