Declutter Your Home this Winter for Springtime Home Staging

With spring only a couple months away, this is the best time to start decluttering your home and making plans of where to keep your items if you’re considering selling your home! Home staging is a concept that revolves around depersonalizing, decluttering and decorating a home to make it more appealing to home buyer. Potential buyers are more likely to purchase a home that they can envision themselves in (without your mess!) Making space for buyers to visualize your space as theirs is a simple short-term investment. Here are some tips for decluttering your home.

Pay attention to the main rooms

Main rooms like living rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms and basements can be decorated minimally to enhance their features. Closets should be empty, especially if your house relies on storage.

Putting away certain types of furniture, heirlooms, boxes of documents, unused items etc. will help lighten your space visually and allow home buyers to see the potential of the space.

Some other tips for home staging include:

  • Arranging your furniture in clusters of odd numbers to make the room seem larger
  • De-personalizing by removing photos and family memorabilia
  • Illuminate corners with additional lights
  • Re-positioning mirrors to add depth and dimension
  • Add plants for a natural feel

Consider renting a storage facility

In the months leading up to your house going on the market, consider putting away your items into a rented self storage facility. This is a great way to keep your items safe and organized while your home is being scoped out by potential buyers. Plus, once you’re ready to move, your items are already boxed up and ready to go!
