When it comes time to sell your home, more often than not, the realtor will work with you to stage your home and make it look inviting for potential new owners. The process of staging your home may involve rearranging your furniture to utilize the space in a better way, or a staging company may bring in all new furniture. No matter what the case may be, there’s no question that staging your home is an important part of the selling process. That being said, you may be wondering which areas are the most important when it comes to staging. In today’s post, we will take a look at what rooms of your home you really want to focus on if you plan to stage your home.

The living room is most likely the most-used room in your home. It serves many purposes, including the gathering area, TV room, and sometimes even the dining area. There’s no question that the living room is central to you home, and as such, it’s important that you make it stand out. Whether you decide to stage this area yourself or you receive help from a professional, it’s important to focus on the floors and the walls. How long has it been since you painted the walls or cleaned the carpet? If you haven’t touched up the area in years, it might be time to go the extra mile and spruce up your space.
Your kitchen is most likely a close second to your living room for the most-used room in a home. Depending on the layout of your kitchen, this may be the space exclusively where meals are prepared, or you may have an open layout that allows you to simultaneously cook and entertain. Regardless of how you use your kitchen, it may mean something entirely different to the new owner, therefore you need to make it stand out as much as possible.
Similarly to how you spruce up your living room, it’s important to take a look at the walls, floors, and countertops and give them a good cleaning. If your kitchen is outdated, it may be worth it to invest in new hardware or appliances. Making these changes may allow you to raise the market price and appeal to more potential buyers.
When the day is done, it feels nice to be able to retire to a bedroom where you can feel comfortable. With that in mind, it’s important to pay special attention to the master bedroom when you are staging your home. The whole point of staging is to help potential buyers see themselves living in your house, but that can be difficult to do if they walk into a bedroom that looks as though it hasn’t been cleaned or doesn’t contain the right kind of furniture. Additionally, you want to put most of your focus into the master bedroom because there is no guarantee that the new owners will have a use for a child’s room or guest room. Once they own the house, they are free to decorate it how they please.
One aspect of your home that is often forgotten is the outside. The outside of your home is the first impression that potential buyers will get before they step inside. With that in mind, you want the outside of your home to look appealing and not as though it has been neglected for many years. If you know in advance that there will be a showing of your house, take the time to groom the lawn and any shrubs or bushes that you have in front. Even something as simple as mowing the lawn can make a huge difference to the curb appeal of your house. If you really want to go above and beyond to make sure that your home sells, you may consider painting the outside, planting some flowers or attractive shrubs, or even consulting with a professional to see what they suggest.
