Staging Suggestions

April 7th, 2014 · No Comments


They key to successful staging is a clean & clutter free space that prospective buyers can imagine themselves living in.  If it is done well, nobody will be able to tell you’ve done anything at all!

Bathroom:  Remove personal items such as toothbrushes, make-up, hair products, etc. from counter space.  Be sure the entire room is clean, and invest in a new shower curtain and some hand towels.  (Do NOT stack towels, tie them with a ribbon, fold the toilet paper into a pocket and put flowers in it, or in any other way make your home bathroom look like a maid from a luxury hotel cleaned it.)

Kitchen/Dining Room:  Be sure the table and chairs and clean and clutter free place a simple centerpiece on the table – a vase of fresh flowers is always a nice touch!  Be sure that kitchen counters are clear and clutter free (put any large appliances away in cabinets or closets) – a simple bowl or basket of fruit gives a clean, open look – go for multiple colors! (Do NOT set the table with a full place setting!)

Bedroom:  Invest in nice bedding and be sure there are night tables on each side of the bed.  For the master bedroom include a dresser and chest of drawers.  If the room seems crowded, use a double bed and put your larger bed in storage for the time being.  (Do NOT drape a throw, stack multiple books on the end table, or place any kind of tray on the bed or otherwise stage in a way that in no way reflects the way you live!)
