Barbara Hutniak's Top Home Staging Tips

Have you ever walked into an Open House and fell in love instantly? That home was most likely staged. When a home hasn’t been staged or is completely empty it may distract buyers from seeing the home's potential. A staged home is not necessarily the most logical way to live, but is the most esthetically pleasing to the eye.

Here are my top staging tips:

  1. Curb Appeal: Love at first sight! Touch up siding, plant some flowers and keep the grass well manicured, especially before an Open House.
  2. Fitting Furniture: Less is more, put over sized furniture in storage.
  3. Fresh Coat: Paint all interior walls for a cleaner look.
  4. Fine Dining: Set the table as if you are having a dinner party.
  5. De-personalize: Remove family photos from walls and give the buyers a chance to imagine living there without any distractions.
  6. Clean Kitchen: Declutter countertops and remove magnets from the fridge.
  7. Pop of Colour: Keep walls neutral and add a pop of colour with throw pillows or artwork.
  8. Fresh Finishes: Add flowers or plants to a room to give it a homey feel.
  9. Clean, Clean, Clean: Clean your home from top to bottom, clean like your life depends on it!
