Home Staging is essential when you are planning to sell your home. A well planned and aesthetically strategic home staging set up can significantly help you increase the value for your home and make it stand out from the inventory of houses available in the real estate market. From a buyer’s perspective a well staged, welcoming home is a visual stimulation that can have a big impact on making a purchase decision.

The staging of a property shows off the home's potential by setting it up, so it looks elegant and classy. It allows buyers to imagine their daily lives if they come to that home. As mentioned, it can impact the first impression of the buyer, and in the Real estate industry, the first impression is everything.

Here are a few home staging tips that can help you appeal to valuable buyers.

Clear out clutter

Clear out all the clutter from home and organize items across the house in a well thought out manner. Remember, a cluttered home is a messy home. Pay attention to little details such as adding family photos on side tables, neatly place motivational quotes in bedroom walls where applicable, and well organized kitchen utensils. People subconsciously pay attention to these little details that can have an impact on their buying decision.


A well cleaned, dust free home automatically promotes a positive environment for the buyer. Remember, nobody likes a dirty home! So the buyer should also be able to visualize the home in a clean manner. Thoroughly clean the entire home, ensure all the surfaces are stain-free, and make sure all furniture and decorative are in mint condition. Consider hiring a cleaning company because they will do an extensive job, which ensures all corners of the house a well cleaned.

Arrange the furniture

The choice of your furniture will have a significant visual impact on your home staging. Ensure the colour scheme and style of your furniture coordinates well with the flooring, walls, and lighting of the home. It is beneficial to look up ideas online e.g. Pinterest, where you can find interior designing tips and photos to help inspire the look and feel. It is important to have your furniture set up in a way that makes the home look spacious, i.e. don’t over furnish it! People want to experience a more spacious set up; otherwise, too much furniture in one area can give off a cluttered look.

Design the bedrooms to be comfortable

The bedrooms of the house can easily become the make or break for a buying decision. Bedrooms should give a comfortable feeling to the buyer when they step in through those doors. This is where they can visualize themselves relaxing, getting their personal space from rest of the home, and sleeping comfortably. Your choice of bed frame, mattress, bed sheets and pillow cases will be important in ensuring the bedrooms are well designed for comfort. With bedrooms you should always aim at creating a serene look and feel.

Pay attention to the exterior

An easily missed area of a home can be its exterior. Arguably, this is also the most important area of a home when showing to a buyer. The entrance of the home is the absolute first impression in a buyer’s eyes. A well designed home outside will attract the buyer to see what’s inside. Prioritize your front yard when designing the exterior. Pay close attention to the choice of flowers, length of plants and the colour of flowers. These added together can have a significant overall visual impact in the appearance of the home. Lastly, don’t forget to clean the exterior area frequently as it’s prone to dust and requires more frequent maintenance.
