How To Stage Your Home
6 Tips For Staging Your Home:
Clear the clutter- Strip the room of “anything that’s distracting from the architectural features in your home,” says Jill Vegas, author of “Speed Decorating”.
Clean, clean, clean-“Make sure every inch of your floor sparkles,” Vegas says. Everything has to gleam, and those dust balls in the corner of your closet have to go.
Add mirrors-Mirrors instantly increase light and can make a space feel wider or deeper.
Light your way-Natural light shining through sparkling windows makes a big statement in a staged home, so remove heavy curtains that block out natural light.
Join the color guard-Beware of too much or too little color. Choose a palette for your throw pillows, vases, flowers, artwork and rugs.
Pull up a chair-“Place furniture on an angle.” Knapp suggests. Avoid multiple chairs with backs that create a vertical line; this can make a space appear cramped and small.
