When preparing to sell your home, adding the right finishing touches significantly impacts potential buyers. These subtle yet effective details can enhance the overall appeal of your space, creating an inviting environment. In this blog post, we will explore a few ways you can add tasteful finishing touches to your home through Edmonton home staging, ensuring that it stands out among the competition and captivates the imaginations of potential buyers.
Keep it minimal
The goal is to create an open, inviting, and uncluttered space. Too many accessories can overwhelm the eye and make a room feel smaller than it actually is. Instead, focus on selecting a few key pieces that enhance the overall style and highlight the home’s best features—choosing cohesive accessories in terms of style, colour, and theme. By carefully curating a selection of accessories, you allow potential buyers to envision themselves and their belonging in your home without any distractions. Remember, less is often more when it comes to Edmonton home staging.
Good lighting can affect a home’s overall ambiance. You can start by maximizing natural light, which is always more attractive and complimentary than artificial light; open your blinds! You can always add some inexpensive light fixtures like floor lamps, table lamps, or even string lights to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere in your home. Replace any outdated yellow-toned bulbs with white-toned bulbs, which can quickly improve the look and feel of your house.
Plants + greenery
If you’re looking around a room and feeling like it needs a pop of colour, adding a plant or flowers is a great place to start. Whether they be faux or real, plants add texture and colour to what can be an otherwise bleak room. Sometimes when we stage a space, it looks almost finished but not quite complete, and typically adding a plant or flowers really pulls the room together. Plants create a relaxing, inviting atmosphere, with the added bonus that they can be an affordable way to elevate a room.
The idea that an empty room will appear bigger than it would with furniture is a myth, but with that said, too much furniture can clutter the space and make it look small. When talking about Calgary home staging, the rule of thumb is less is more. That can be hard to remember when trying to decorate a home with the intention of selling, but it’s essential to keep things minimal; there is a sweet spot with just the necessities and refined details.
What we mean by refined, thoughtful details:
- 2-3 books on a coffee table
- Placing a few throw pillows on the couch
- Hanging a simple portrait behind the dining room table
- A tea kettle on the stove with a few cookbooks nicely stacked on the counter
- Stuffed animals on the bed of the kids’ room
As we said, less is more, so a little goes a long way! You don’t have to over-decorate or fill every empty space; be thoughtful about what finishing touches you add to each room.
