Des Moines staging is a growing industry that is dedicated to helping you sell your home as fast as possible. When staging a home there are several right ways, and wrong ways to do it. Unfortunately without the help of Des Moines staging experts, many people make big mistakes that can cost them a buyer. One of the big mistakes people make is choosing the wrong furniture.
Ask any Des Moines staging expert and they will tell you furniture is a key component to stage a home to sell fast. Too much and the home feels cramped. Too little and it feels open and drafty. Outdated furniture can make a home seem drab but what about vintage pieces? Follow these Des Moines staging tips and you will be sure to have the right furniture.
Make the right first impression for people visiting your open house with the addition of mirrors. Mirrors are the perfect way to add light and depth to almost any room in your home. Use a mirror at the end of a hallway or several mirrors in a bathroom to reflect light in darker areas. Mirrors will create the feel of limitless space in a room but remember to avoid those tacky 1980’s style mirrored closet doors and bedroom walls.
Always remember to decorate the dining room table. The dining room is often looked-over in Des Moines staging however it is a key room to wow buyers. A large dining room table without food on it can look bland and uninviting so spruce it up with a few smaller floral arrangements.
Some people decide to rent furniture to stage a home. This is necessary for several reasons, like if the furniture in your home is outdated, if you have already moved, or if you are an agent trying to sell a brand new home. When renting furniture always go for sophisticated neutral colors. Des Moines staging is not the time to be creative and experiment. That doesn’t mean you always have to opt for whites. Mochas and gray-ish colors will pull everything together.
If you have a room that has been used as an “extra” room filled with your junk, clean it up and turn it into a guest room. Buyers want to feel like each room can be useful so they are getting the most for their investment. Setting up a basic bedroom set in that storage room will go a long way to making your home more valuable.
