Home Staging Tips for Your Living Room

Image of a staged living room. Home StagingIf you want to sell your home fast, your home staging is vital. And while all the rooms in your home are important to buyers, your living room is a focal point that can make or break a sale. This is the room where people relax; chat with friends and family; and watch TV, movies, and the big game. It’s a room that buyers need to “see themselves in.”

Here are our top home staging tips for your living room.

1. Keep the walls neutral. Even though you may love bold or bright colors on the walls, buyers prefer to see spaces that are light, airy, and neutral. If your living room walls are painted colors like crimson red or eggplant purple, repaint them to a neutral light color, even if you think it’s boring. Living with boring walls for a few weeks will pay off big later.

2. Remove personal items. Get a jump start on packing and remove all the family photos or other highly personal things, like your collection of rooster statues or your kids’ clay handprints. Also pack up the clutter and knick-knacks, keeping only a few key items to decorate shelves. You want your buyers to focus on the space and not what they perceive as clutter.

3. Show off your windows. Don’t hide your windows behind heavy drapes or drawn blinds. Make sure the windows are clean and unobstructed so the natural light shines in. Buyers prefer spaces that have lots of natural light, as it makes a home feel open and inviting.

4. Make the most of seating. Arrange the furniture so it forms a conversation area. Usually a sofa, couple of chairs, and coffee table are all you need. If your furniture is old, outdated, or worn, and if new furniture isn’t an option right now, buy some matching throw pillows for the seating pieces to bring the room together.
