Home staging is for creating the perfect first impression by decorating an unfurnished property with furniture and home items. It helps to exhibit how to utilize the space and to entice potential clients with an attractive display.
Here are some low-cost methods of staging your home for sale or rent:
1. Remove clutter
The first thing to do is remove all unnecessary stuff lying around your home. They may have some sentimental value to you, but it may not have the same effect on a stranger who is visiting your home for the first time. Put away all dusty ornaments, collectables, old photos and anything that does not belong. Note to self: more is less!
2. How does it smell like?
Ever walked into a room and immediately get blinded by the smell? Bad smells are a huge distraction and it leaves a bad impression. Clean to get rid of unpleasant smells. Use air freshener, essential oils diffuser or scented candles to seal the deal!
Try using different scents for different parts of the home:
Kitchen & Toilet – Citrus scents, citronella ,lemon, lime, orange
Living Room – Soothing scents such as Sandalwood, Cedarwood, lemon grass
Bedroom – Flora scents like roses, jasmine, Lavender
3. Brighten up your home
Let your potential buyers step into a light and airy living room. Replace faulty bulbs with bright daylight bulbs for living rooms and kitchens. Warm lights are usually for bedrooms. Unblock windows as much as possible to allow natural sunlight.
4. Make your bedroom look cosy
Make sure your bedroom looks warm and relaxing. If you have a desk in your bedroom, sweep it clean of work materials and clutter, replace it with a vase with flowers. Use matching neutral colored bed linen and keep accessories such as posters, framed photos and old items to a minimum. Think of how a hotel room look and keep it that way.
5. Cleanliness is godliness
Cleaning can be such a chore but it is essential as it gives the illusion of things looking new. Spend some effort to clean walls, floors and furniture. Dust and cobwebs give the impression that the house has been vacant for a long time and subconsciously, potential buyers will be more cautious when approaching to close the deal
Do note – you don’t need to reinstate damaged furniture if it is still functional. Move the furniture to obstruct from view the parts that are damaged.
