Feng Shui Home Staging

Fung Shei 1Marketing and staging your home is essential to attract home buyers and get an offer to purchase. Increasing your chances of selling your home can be done in many ways. One simple way is to practice the art of Feng Shui, an ancient Chinese principle to maximize the energy in your home.

Feng Shui doesn’t have to be an expensive project. Decorative pieces you already have can make a big difference in a room, so look around and see what you can move around. Using what you already have is a great way to keep costs down, but sometimes you’ll need to invest in a bucket of paint for your entry door.

First impressions are everything! One of the most important rooms in the home is the one that is first entered by home shoppers. If your entryway opens to a foyer making it look as wide as possible, since open and spacious rooms have better energy flows. Try using a long, runner rug to achieve the look and make sure you have a bright color on the walls.

Your living room is one of the main draws to any home buyer. They should be able to envision themselves spending time there and entertaining guests.  Pack up any items like family photos, remember it’s not about you anymore and home buyer need to see themselves living in your home and not your family. A few simple art pieces on the walls or on shelves are easy replacements and nice additions, as long as the space does not look cluttered or ill-kept. When entering your living room home shoppers shouldn’t be looking at the backside your furniture. Lay out your furniture outward facing and make the room inviting.  A clean, uncluttered coffee table keeps the flow going, while also allowing for utility.

Televisions, stereos, computers and other electronics often have a negative effect on energy flows in bedrooms, so try to keep them out of the bedroom during the staging process. The bed should be in full view of the door, but if possible the headboard shouldn’t be against the wall that is directly in front of the door and remember to allow as much natural light into the room as possible.

In the art of Feng Shui drains are seen as energetically negative, so be sure to keep toilet seats, shower curtains, and doors closed when staging your home. Natural light is very important, as well as the uncluttered counter top. 

Kitchen counters and tables are junk magnets. Keep these spaces clear and clutter free. Fresh flowers add a nice touch to the room, and make it seem more open. Yellow is considered good for digestion, so painting the room a nice shade of yellow, or adding touches of yellow here and there can be beneficial.

Home staging is key to selling your home. Feng Shui can be a great way to interest potential home buyers, and sell a home quicker. Remember, energy flow is the basis of Feng Shut and both natural lighting and arrangement of furniture make a difference in the energy levels of your home.
