5 Home Staging Tricks
One of the hardest parts of selling your home is making the most of those less-than-desirable spaces.
No wasted space
When working with a small room, make sure all the space is utilized and maximized. You can buy organizers for any kind of funky wall space or corner you can think of. Scrounge around antique shops and thrift shops for odd shaped and sized furniture such as corner or mountable shelves.
With small rooms you really want to maximize the vertical space. Consider, for instance, floating nightstands. They provide the utility you need, while making the room appear larger because it’s not taking up real estate on the floor.
Old tips with a twist
The time-worn secret of putting a mirror in a smaller room is known by most homeowners. The real trick, though, is positioning it in a way that features something fun. Maybe it reflects a nice art piece, or the garden in the back – you don’t want it simply bouncing back to a blank wall. Reflecting a light source such as a window or lamp can also brighten up a darker room.
Walls don't have to just be totally functional. If you’re selling, you also want to add some pizzazz. Use your walls for an over-sized graphic as a headboard. Or put up a collection of antique hats and mirrors to include style.
Put everything in its place
In a small living space, clutter seems to sneak up on you. Buy yourself some shelf and closet organizers and make sure everything has a permanent home while still remaining easily accessible. No more junk drawers!
