A popular means of showing your home to its greatest potential, room or house staging is often used when trying to sell a home. But there’s no reason that you couldn’t use the techniques to make the best use of your home space for yourself.
When thinking about your living room for example, the following room staging tips can appeal to potential buyers or help to create a calm, spacious environment to entertain friends and spend time with your family.
Tip 1. – Make it Social
Arranging furniture to face each other or creating social clusters will encourage conversation and make for great entertainment space.
Tip 2. Create Space
Even in the smallest of living rooms, you can create an illusion of space by simply arranging your furniture appropriately. The key is to ensure there is a clear path around the room for you to easily manoeuvre around your furniture.
Tip 3. Neutral doesn’t have to be boring
Another way of creating a spacious effect is to keep your palette light and neutral. Particularly appealing to potential buyers, a neutral palette will allow them to see your home as a blank canvas for them to put their mark on. For you however, neutral doesn’t have to be boring – choose a bold accent colour to suit your personality and use sparingly for maximum effect.
Tip 4. Re-cover worn furniture
A quick and easy way to spruce up your furniture is to opt for loose covers. A new fabric can instantly freshen your room. Click here to find out more about Plumbs Loose Covers.
