Home-staging tips for a show-worthy home

Staging your home is a great way to enhance the appeal of your property to buyers. Home-staging and lifestyle expert Tori Toth shares some tips for homesellers.

Add natural touches

Take a cue from the geography surrounding the home and use natural elements that reflect that area. You want to add plants and flowers to soften spaces and subliminally remind buyers that life grows here.

Rearrange furniture

Moving furniture to open traffic flow can make a room feel bigger, or arranging it to create a conversation area gives the space purpose.

Set the mood with lighting

A house that’s illuminated says, “Come on in.” Open your blinds and curtains to let in natural light, and put the maximum allowable wattage in fixtures to boost illumination.

Accessorize the entryway

Add strategic pieces-a table lamp, artwork, mirror, decorative box-to create a statement when welcoming people into a home.
