Planning to sell your house soon? These home staging tips will help you show the true worth of your house to the potential buyers. Follow these steps closely to have the true value of your residence acknowledged and paid for. These steps will also help you manage the home staging cost. Yes, home staging need not be a costly affair. Most of these tasks can be accomplished with some effort and little expenditure from your part.

Remove all the clutter from the hallway

It is extremely important to make first positive impressions. Remove all the dust and cobwebs from the hallway. This is the first place the potential buyers of your house is going to frequent. Throw away the junk from the under stair space. Install a mudroom cabinet or floating shelving system to have the shoes, umbrellas and other essential household items properly organised.

Highlight the special feature of your house

Try to highlight a special feature of your house. Perhaps your house offers an excellent view of the surroundings. Or, may be, you have natural stone or wood flooring in your home. It could also be the intelligent layout of your apartment that makes living in it so special. Put this special feature in the limelight. Remove that old rug to expose the beautiful wood flooring. Offer your guests a panoramic view of the surroundings.

Change the cushion covers

Sometimes a small activity like this can immediately freshen up the interiors. Change the cushion covers that are showing signs of aging. You may even add some colours with the help of cushion and throw blankets. Clean the surface of your coffee table. When needed, change the cushions in your dining area, window seats and bedroom.

Give the walls a fresh coat of paint

Follow this simple step to add sparkle in the interiors. A newly painted room looks cleaner and brighter. Try to address the structural flaws of the walls before you repaint them. You may even invest in wallpapers, especially to deck up the feature wall. You may seek the opinion of an interior designer to select an interesting colour scheme for your home.

Invite Your Guests on Terrace

Tastefully decorate the terrace with plenty of green plants. Have a small seating arrangement and invite your guests to a cup of tea in the afternoon. You can decorate a small terrace with vertical garden as well. Install proper outdoor lighting fixtures so that this space can be well utilised even after sunset.

Clean the glass windows and doors

Window and door panels with accumulating dust from over the years look shabby and inhibit the view of your apartment and the exteriors. Use soft cloth to remove the dust from the windows. Invest proper glass cleaning chemicals to remove old stains.

Follow these tips to clean the house in 3 hours' or less.

Spring clean the kitchen

Remove leftover food items and empty the trash cans. Take some out to reorganise the shelves and the interiors of the cabinet.

Redecorate the kid’s bedroom

Brighten up the interior

A dark room never looks enticing to anyone. Make the best use of available sunlight. Install proper lighting fixtures. A brightly lit room will make look bigger and more cheerful. Pay special attention to the corridors and stairways where the lighting may not be sufficient.
