LIGHTING

Make sure to open all blinds before a showing as natural light is a free way to make your home more inviting. Here is a helpful hint: use white or light shades for curtain panels on outsides of windows (hung mid way from ceiling to top of window frame) to add extra height to your walls and make the windows themselves feel bigger! Consider changing out light bulbs for a bright white bulb with appropriate wattage in bathrooms and kitchens for a cleaner look.

PAINT

If you are reading this, you probably noted on our exterior staging tips that a fresh coat of paint can be one of the best investments when thinking about increasing your value of your property. Keep interior pant colors neutral and leave the accents for pops of color such as your bathroom towels, an area rug, or fresh cut flowers on your table or by your bed. Remember, you are trying to appeal the style of your home to everyone and the main goal is for them to be able to see their furniture and style being able to work when they walk through the home!

DETAILS

We can’t say it enough, details can take you from wow to sold in a quick way. We have put together some quick tips to staging the interior of your home.
