If you want to get a good deal when selling your home, it’s important to make a good impression. Lucky for you, this time of the year is perfect for making buyers go “wow!”
Here are a few tips you can use for holiday home staging.
1. Clean and Declutter
Staging a home is fundamentally about making it as presentable as possible. That starts with cleaning up. Before you put up a single piece of decoration, tidy up every room, and remove any unnecessary clutter. When your home is at its best on its own, holiday-themed ornaments will help it shine even more.
2. Coordinate Your Colors
Decorations come in a variety of colors. Make sure to pick out ones that go well with the interior design of your home. For example, if your place has light blue hues, use white, blue, or silver décor. If you have a lot of wood accents, that’s where the classic reds and greens of the season can do wonders.
A random clash of colors may catch someone’s attention, but not in a good way. Stick to a complementary palette that’s always pleasing to the eyes.
3. Light with Purpose
We’ve all seen that one neighbor who goes all out with the holiday light show. Don’t follow their example. Instead, each piece of lighting you put up must have a purpose. In this case, it’s to draw attention to your home’s most appealing features.
Use lanterns to light up your entryway or use small spotlights to highlight decorations on the front porch. This creates a welcoming view of your home from the outside. On the inside, stick to simple and soft white lights and use them sparingly. The goal is to create a magical ambiance that matches the season.
4. Create a Cozy Environment
This is your opportunity to show off your home during a particularly festive time of the year. You can take advantage of this by helping potential buyers imagine what spending the holidays would be like on the property.
In the living room, for example, you can hang a wreath over the fireplace or a couple of socks for Santa to put his presents. A cozy place to celebrate with friends and family – that’s the feeling your home should convey.
5. Don’t Go Overboard
Remember, you’re trying to sell your home, not the decorations. Aim for just enough flair to give off a cheerful vibe, but not too much that it feels tacky. Simple and tasteful décor complements your home’s features and doesn’t overwhelm the space.
