3 Tips to Keep in Mind When Staging a Living Room

3 Tips to Keep in Mind When Staging a Living Room

Staging a living room can help buyers envision a home as theirs. If you’re in the process of selling your home, then you’ve probably wondered about staging key rooms such as the living room. It’s easy to feel stuck if you don’t know where to start. Fortunately, these three tips will point you in the right direction for making the most of your staging efforts.

Staging a Living Room: Add Accessories and Simple Decorations

The key to successfully staging your living room is to keep it neutral. Ideally, potential buyers should walk in and imagine themselves living there. If all of your personal items are on display, it’s harder for buyers to imagine themselves living in your home.

Instead, keep your furnishings, paint colors, and accessories as neutral as possible. That doesn’t mean that you can’t or shouldn’t add decorative touches here or there. You can, but be strategic about it. Simply adding a nice rug can improve your home style. Truly, in this case, less is often more.

Create an Open Layout With the Furniture

Openness sells. It feels less claustrophobic and more inviting. The last thing you want is for a prospective homebuyer to feel closed in. Granted, you may not have much space, which makes this principle a little more challenging but not impossible.

If your living room lacks space or feels cramped, there are a few steps you can take to create the appearance of an open layout. The strategic selection and use of mirrors lets in more light, which makes a room feel more expansive. Second, get rid of the big, bulky furniture. That just takes up floor space. If you can, replace the furniture with smaller, “daintier” pieces. The extra space created by this trick will make the room feel more open.

Staging a Living Room: Declutter

Clutter is off-putting to buyers. It makes a space look closed in and oppressive. If the clutter is bad enough, potential homebuyers are also going to wonder about the cleanliness of the home in general. While it is possible to have a cluttered and yet not dirty house, most people don’t make the distinction between the two. For many, if a home is cluttered, it’s also dirty. Pick up your clutter and avoid giving buyers the impression that your home is dirty.

If you’re about to stage a living room or another room in your home, please believe that your efforts will be more than worth it. Staged homes sell faster and for more money than non-staged homes, making staging well worth the effort.
