Home Staging Ideas That Are Easy on the Pocketbook

When you think about home staging do you envision truckloads of expensive furniture pulling up to your door to make your home look better? A lot of people do. The thing is though is that staging can be done on a budget and it does not always include replacing the furniture. Staging simply means getting your home looking its best for your home viewers.depositphotos_home_staging_372_01

1. De-clutter

This is the single most important thing you can do to make your home look its best. Even if you have a relatively tidy home, there may be some things that should be packed away while your home is on the market. Personal photos and items should be taken out of a room to help make it look larger. Unnecessary plants and rugs should also be packed away. This way, a potential buyer can use his imagination to decide what his own furniture would look like in the open space you are giving him to create with.

2. Clean the open space you have created.

What's the next thing on the list? Clean the space and the rest of your home like it has never been cleaned before. Get into the cracks and crevices and make sure that they are shining to match the rest of your house. Now's the time to make sure that all of the baseboards are clean, the corners in the walls are spotless and all of the appliances are gleaming. If you don't have the time to devote to a thorough cleaning of your home you can call in a professional maid service for a one day thorough cleaning.

3. Lighten up your home

Before any viewers arrive turn on all of the lights and open the curtains during the daytime. Light makes a room feel less claustrophobic and more open.

4. Move the furniture

Don't be afraid to move the furniture around since there may be a better position it could be in once the de-cluttering has taken place. You should try to have one piece of furniture as a central focal point and then move everything else around it. Try shifting things around until you feel that you have created a better space where everything fits together perfectly and the room seems spacious and inviting.
