When putting your home in the market, having great aesthetic appeal can become a deciding factor in getting that extra value. Many factors like your curb appeal, the interiors and the lawn becoming important for quicker sales. And with most homes now going the online way of selling, presenting your house in the best light possible is the way to go.
But not everyone has their homes designed by professional interior design firms. So how can you make sure your home stands out from the rest? The trick is to invest some time home staging. A quality home staging is not as time-consuming as people make it sound. With some few simple tricks and a little bit of effort, you can expect some great results.
Here are 6 of those tricks –
With mirrors, a room can appear bigger than it actually is. It adds space and helps to open up cramped areas. If you cannot get any expensive artwork or decorative items, then get a simple and large mirror. It will automatically add a curated touch to the room.
Spice Up Your Windows
Remove the old window drapes and add in something modern and simple. Heavy drapes that block a lot of light may be functional but when it comes to looks, they are not the best option. Just like the mirrors, modern and simple designs make the room feel bigger. Another thing, hang the curtains from the roof wherever possible instead of the window frames.
Get Some White Towels
When it comes to the bathrooms, it gets a lot simpler. Use simple colors that would be attractive to a large audience. You may like the deep lavender shades but not everyone is into it. Colors like white help to elevate the design and makes it look professional. It makes the bathroom feel fresh and clean.
Change the Rugs
Rugs are one those few items that instantly grab your attention when laid down in the wrong way. Get something that actually fits your room and goes along with your furniture. The front legs of your furniture should touch the rug. The rug binds together the whole aesthetic of the room.
Do Not Make it Personal
The main aim of home staging is making the house look better without coming up as personal. You want to model the house to make it sell faster. It should be as neutral as possible. Everyone’s taste is different. Leave out your personal touches from the items like photo frames, certificates, items with your name on it etc. You want the prospective buyer to be able to imagine your house as their own.
Clean it Clean
Finally, clean everything. Every single bit. If you cannot live in a dirty home then how can you expect someone else to do the same? Bathroom, kitchen, bedrooms, living room, basement – do not leave any corner behind. Make sure, after cleaning, the house should not smell like a detergent. Get some scented candles or maybe bake some cookies to freshen up the aroma.
