If you want to try your hand in home staging to make your abode as attractive as possible to potential buyers, we have some do-it-yourself home staging tips for you:

Clean everything

It’s important to clean your house thoroughly before you stage your home. This includes cleaning the bathtubs, showers, sinks, and countertops. Make sure to dust and vacuum every available surface, wipe down the windows for the perfect view, take away the garbage, and remove any odors. Cleaning is the easiest and the most crucial part of staging your home.

Remove clutter

Make your house feel more spacious, simple, and inviting by removing unnecessary objects from the space. This is as easy as removing knick-knacks on kitchen countertops, organizing bookshelves, and packing away furniture that don’t serve as useful or interesting pieces in the room.

Make quick fixes

Simple repairs like fixing a hard to open cabinet door or patching up the wallpaper can improve your home exponentially. These are very easy ways to make your home look like it’s been well maintained.

Depersonalize your house

Removing personal items like family photos and children’s artworks is an easy way of making your home more appealing to buyers. The less personal items there are, the easier it is for buyers to envision their lives in the home.

Add simple touches

You can make your home more welcoming to buyers by putting fresh flowers in vases or a colorful fruit bowl in the kitchen. Throw pillows are also an excellent yet inexpensive way to make your house look more polished. Adding fresh towels and replacing old shower curtains can make your bathroom look brand new.
