13 Home Staging Secrets
Highlight your home's strengths, downplay its weaknesses and appeal to prospective buyers with these secrets.
Use Color Creatively
Color can be incorporated in many ways, so don't be afraid to use it creatively. From unique pieces of art to decorative pillows, a pop of color can really catch a buyer's eye.
Throw out old belongings that simply add to a clutter-filled home.
Less Is More
Too much furniture is one of the biggest mistakes homeowners make. Consider arranging a few core pieces in your space and see the difference.
Pull furniture away from the walls to create groups within a room and to help with the traffice flow in and through the space.
Mix It Up
Shake up the room's style and attitude by periodically moving furniture around and incorporating old accessories into your design in a new way.
Repurpose Unused Rooms
Make that junk room into a dreamy crafts room.
Let Light In
Letting outside light in can brighten the space and make the room feel larger.
Light It Up
Most homes are improperly lit. Aim for 100 watts every 50 square feet in layers of ambient, task and accent lighting.
Rearrange Your Art
Displaying art in traditional ways -- in a circle at the same height around the room -- can make it invisible. Leave the stereotype behind and display art in surprising ways.
Paint It Black
Looking for a chic, dramatic style? Try freshening your furniture with a coat of black paint.
Accessorize With Threes
Odd-numbered groups of accessories, especially threes, tend to be more eye appealing.
Bring the Outdoors In
Head outside and grab some greenery from your yard to bring a fresh look indoors.
Make an Entrance
Creating a warm entrance to your home is welcoming to your guests.
