Not-So-Obvious Home Staging Tips

When it comes to “staging” your home for sale - which basically means ensuring it looks clean and uncluttered - you probably already know the basics: clean the counters, vacuum the floors, mow the lawn, etc.


But there are also some less obvious home staging tips that can help to sell your property faster and for a higher price. Here are a few examples.



The Kitchen Obvious: The stove, sinks and countertops should be spotless. Not-so-obvious: The contents of your cabinets and refrigerator should be facing forward. The Bathrooms Obvious: They should be clean and uncluttered. Have fresh towels hanging neatly on the rack. (Create the “hotel bathroom” look.) Not-so-obvious: All towels should match. Ensure toilet lids are closed. Your Bedroom Obvious: Make the bed neatly. Check that the closet is organized and uncluttered. (If your closet is bulging with clothes, put some in storage.) Not-so-obvious: Don’t leave any clothes out. Even clean clothes neatly folded in a hamper can seem untidy to some people. The Kids’ Bedrooms Obvious: They need to be clean and uncluttered. (Good luck!) Not-so-obvious: Arrange stuffed animals, games and other toys like an attractive display in a toy store. It’s okay to have a toy, like a racetrack, out of the box. Just make sure it’s completely put together.
