Home Staging Tips when Selling Your Home

If you’re a homeowner trying to sell your property, you need to make your home feel desirable. You have to entice potential strangers to buy your property, and the best way to do this is to stage your home to showcase its beauty and the possibility it has of being their next home.

This will help sway the buyers into putting in an offer that you might consider. However, if you’re going to conduct a staging, you need to ensure that the property is ready. You want to give an excellent impression to potential buyers, so the first thing you need to ensure is up to standard is the properties structure.

You may need to work with a reputable restoration contractor, like Metwin, to enhance the property’s structural integrity and appeal. You’ll need to look for an experienced contractor that can help you restore windows and other features for your property without compromising its charm.

Here are some staging tips for consideration.

Conduct a Thorough Cleaning

The next step for making a good impression on potential buyers, is it’s cleanliness, so your property needs to be as spotless as possible. This means you will have to spend some time and effort to clean everything from the floors to the ceilings and everything in between.

Viewers are going to check every room in the home including the kitchen, the bedrooms and the bathroom, so everything must be clean and sparkling including any appliances, white good and even your bedding.

Depersonalise and Declutter 

When it comes to interior decor you need to try to be as generic as possible. You aim is to afford the viewer the ability to envision themselves living in the property, this means you’ll need to hide away any of your personal possessions. Remove pictures, toys and other personal possessions. Another top tip is to remove various knickknacks so the space doesn’t appear cluttered and untidy.

Refresh your Walls and Ceilings 

Another way to generate appeal from viewers and potential buyers is by repainting the walls, and ceilings. It’s always best to remove old paint where possible, alternatively you make have to paint over it. Try to use white or other neutral colours as this will allow those viewing to envision what paint scheme they want to put on, once they have purchased the property.

Update the fixtures 

Next take a closer look at your lighting fixtures. Try to make them as shiny and as clean as possible. They should also be functional, and the bulbs should provide enough like to illuminate the room. If they’re not working, replace them before the staging and viewings.


You need to make sure that your furniture will be suitable for the room. Don’t clutter the space, and make sure they’re optimally positioned to accentuate the room and its potential. A word of advice, never use cheap furniture in a staging. It will detract most of your potential buyers.


If you’re thinking of selling your property, knowing how to conduct a proper staging to highlight its beauty is essential. In addition, you’ll have to perform several upgrades and updates to make an excellent first impression on your clients.
