Can you recall the most recent time you went through a furniture showroom? You have most likely observed that the sofa, chairs, tables, and other furnishings in the room have been placed – also known as staged – in order to make them appear more inviting. You might have noticed a lovely lamp resting on the end table of a sofa, or perhaps a delicious bowl of fruit was displayed on the buffet in the dining room.

You should do pretty much the same thing when you're getting your house ready to go on the market. It is important to stage each space so that it looks its very best. Research has shown that doing so will help you sell your property more quickly and for a higher price.

Here are some basic, economical staging tips:

  1. 1. Create the impression that each room is extremely vast. Because of this, it's possible that some of your belongings, including part of your furniture, will need to be stored.
    2. Take away anything that isn't necessary from the tables, shelves, and worktops.
    3. On shelves, tables, and even sofas, ornamental objects should be arranged in groupings of an odd number. The woman who is credited with developing staging, Barb Schwartz, believes that this particular mix produces the best results. Hence, instead of two or four pillows, a sofa should have three.
    4. By adding a throw cover, you may give an antique piece of furniture the appearance of being both charming and stylish.
    5. The addition of flowers or a plant with flowering foliage brings vibrancy and aesthetic appeal to virtually any living environment.
    6. Make sure that your best dinnerware is displayed on the table. It gives the customer the want to move in and have dinner there right away!
    7. f you want to improve the appearance of an older bathroom, consider upgrading the sink, the faucets, and the toilet. That takes not too much time and is not too expensive.
  2. When they stage your house, professional stagers look at it through the perspective of the buyer. Carry out the identical steps that I did, and you will be able to identify any areas that require modification.
