Home Staging Mistakes to Avoid
If you are considering selling your home it is important to understand the value of staging. This can make your home more appealing to home shoppers resulting in less time on the market. Although this can be very beneficial there are certain things you want to avoid. The first step is to ensure you have a plan that gives you an understanding of the desired end result. Once this is established, you want to create a vision board. The board will help you brainstorm how to pair colors and textures so you avoid a cluttered look. During the brainstorming process, you will want to avoid too much furniture or too many colors that are not within the same color palette. By doing this you will create a flow and ambiance that will be appealing. After brainstorming you should work on creating a floor plan that will help you envision the overall layout.
One important mistake during this process you want to avoid is not removing all existing decor. By doing this will you will give yourself a clean slate. Although there may be a few beautiful pieces you will want to include it is extremely important to start fresh when staging. You can bring the pieces back in once there is a vision of where they will flow the best.
Try to avoid using too much decor so there is a sense of clean and decluttered space. When searching for pieces always have a floor plan and your measurements handy. Also, remember to avoid the cookie-cutter style, you want to make the space look livable and welcoming. When thinking of finishing touches try to put yourself in the shoes of a buyer looking for a home. You will want to make the space look and feel comfortable.
