3 Inexpensive Home Staging Ideas that Yield Big Results

Image of a professional staged home. Home Staging Ideas.If you’re selling your home, you know that home staging is vital. You want your home to look updated and modern, no matter when it was built or the last time you did renovations. Unfortunately, home staging can often be expensive and time consuming. If you’re short on both cash and time, here are three simple home staging ideas that will give you the most bang for the least amount of money.

1. Change out your wall plates. Those covers that surround your light switches and outlets may seem small and insignificant, yet they can make a big impact on a room. If your home has builder-grade dingy wall plates, or mismatched plates throughout each room, update them now. You can choose something neutral so all the plates in the home match (and thus buy them in bulk), or you can go for a room-by-room color palate or theme. It’s amazing how simple wall plates can pull a room together and give it an updated feel.

2. Pay attention to your lighting. Whether your home feels warm and inviting or cold and unapproachable depends a lot on your home’s lighting. Make sure the lights in each room match. In other words, don’t have “soft white” bulbs in one lamp and “bright white” in another. For home staging, “warm white” or “bright white” bulbs are best because they cast a warm yet neutral glow. Also, make sure you have the appropriate wattage to adequately showcase your home; look for 750 lumens or more.

3. Replace bathroom faucets and fixtures. Bathrooms are a big-ticket renovation item. To do a quick and inexpensive redo, replace outdated gold and shiny silver fixtures with more modern brushed nickel and oil-rubbed bronze finishes. This simple update will immediately make your home feel more contemporary.

Proper Home Staging Pays Off

There’s no need for home staging to cost a lot of money. After you clear the clutter and depersonalize your home, focus on these three home staging ideas. They’ll give you the biggest payout for the least amount of money.
