Home Staging Tips for Fall

Here are a few staging ideas that will not only make your home feel warm and cozy for potential buyers, but it will also make your home ready for the approaching holidays.

 

Less is More

A few attractive accents create a welcoming setting and make your home feel fresh.  Instead of having too many decorations that will take away the focus from your home and its features, display vases of fall foliage or bowls of seasonal fruit throughout your home.

 

Warm Up Your Walls with Fall Colors

A fresh coat of paint is a good way to refresh your home’s interiors.  A rich shade of caramel or cream is neutral, but also warm and inviting. Accessories in deep reds and oranges add pops of color.

 

Let In the Light

Ample lighting to highlight your home’s best features is essential lighting in the fall when the days get shorter.  Open your blinds to let in as much natural light as possible, and place lamps throughout your home for additional illumination.

 

Emphasize Comfort

Plush throws and pillows accentuate your sofas and chairs and help create a warm and cozy atmosphere encouraging potential homebuyers to stick around to admire your home.

 

Use Seasonal Scents

The aromas of apples and cinnamon bring the smell of fall to any room.  Burn a cinnamon-scented candle or warm a pot of apple cider on the stove with a cinnamon stick before a showing or open house.

 

Dress Up the Fireplace

Make your fireplace the focal point of your room by rearranging your furniture.  You can also draw attention to the mantel with attractive artwork or accessories- a cozy fireplace is a great feature to emphasize in the fall.

 

These are just tiny details that will give big results in making your house feel more “home-like” to potential buyers, and will also get your home ready for the holidays.
