Is your home going on the market soon? That means your next mission is to get prospective buyers to see themselves living in your space — and real estate staging is the way to do just that. Here at Bleu Haven Homes, we understand this process can be stressful. To make this process easier (and a lot more fun), we’ve rounded up three tips for making your real estate staging both eye-catching and functional so that buyers will easily see themselves living there.
- Minimize Clutter: Too much stuff crowding your space is a mood killer for visitors. Even if you barely see it anymore and swear it’s only a temporary fix, buyers will feel stressed in a cramped space. Instead, stash unruly items in stylish bins or under-the-bed storage containers that will keep them tidy, safe, and out of the way.
- Maximize Odd Areas: Now’s the time to add some pizzazz! That random kitchen pocket can be given new purpose with a small table and flowers, while some hooks and shelves will make your entryway spot a functional mudroom.
- Stick to Neutrals: While bright pops of color are fun and bring personality to a space, staging your home is meant to be more of an open canvas. You’ll want it to be fun and inviting, but not at the expense of making visitors feel out of place. A quick paint job will transform your home into a cozy oasis that buyers will easily see themselves in.
At the end of the day, imagination is the name of the game, so let your real estate staging support the idea of someone else making memories there. This is your chance to pique their interest as quickly as possible while you get ready for your next adventure.
