Staging a house to sell is an important step in the process, but you may be wondering what the difference is between staging your home and simply decorating it. Decorating may seem like an easier option, but will it help your home sell? In today’s post, we will discuss the difference between staging and decorating so that you have a better idea about which option is best.

Home Staging

You may think that staging your home is the same thing as decorating it, and you wouldn’t be completely wrong. Home staging is part of the design family, as is decorating, but it is more focused on the real estate industry.

As we have discussed in previous blogs, the point of staging your home is to highlight its best features. Because you have lived so long in your home, you probably have favorite aspects of your home, but those aspects may not be what buyers are looking for. For example, you may enjoy the little reading nook in your bedroom or how the light comes through a certain window, making it a perfect place for your indoor plants. However, buyers are more interested in generic details, such as a spacious kitchen and an open floor plan.

When it comes time to sell your home, home stagers will come and arrange furniture or give you advice on how to clean up your space. Their job is to work with the space in a way that makes it more appealing to potential buyers. Additionally, they will also go through and tell you what repairs need to be made while removing personal items such as family photos to help others see your home as their home.


Decorating is slightly different than staging your home. That being said, when you stage your home for potential buyers, you don’t have to completely get rid of your style that you worked so hard on. We don’t recommend that you paint over your walls with a neutral white or grey, leaving your house completely devoid of color. Instead, you can try and mute down the tones and choose a more neutral blue or green that gives you a calm feeling. If you have a very distinct taste in artwork or decorations, it may be in your best interest to remove some of the wall art in order to appeal to more people.
