Everyone knows that first impressions are important; once you’ve addressed any necessary improvements needed to enhance your home’s curb appeal you’ll want to look at your living room. Staging your home doesn’t have to be complicated and done right you can create a positive influence for potential home buyers when viewing your home.

Staging is the art of decorating and arranging spaces within your house to make all the more appealing to buyers and one of the most important rooms you need to stage is the living room. The living room is the central part of the house; it’s where your home buyers need to see themselves involved in many of their social activities. Remember, it’s not about you; it’s about selling your home. Think about what might create the feeling of more space, and keeping it attractive and welcoming. When home buyers can see themselves in your living room, they’ll be more likely to buy.

Here are some tips to keep in mind when staging your living room before the next showing or open house:

  1. The most important! A messy house will turn off potential buyers. Dispose of any papers, toys, and other items to make your living room as clean as possible.
  2. Remove your personal items. If you have too many family photos and personal effects in the room, it can make it difficult for your potential buyers to imagine their own family living there.
  3. Remove the bulk. If your living room feels small, you can remove some of the furniture to give it the illusion of being bigger.
  4. Go Zen. The main purpose of a living room is its ability to create a feeling of relaxation and a comfortable as possible. Try a soft throw for the sofa with plush cushions and a big chair can create a zone begging your home buyer to curl up with a book.
  5. If you have the room, arrange your furniture to create areas of conversation, such as two chairs and a small sofa facing each other with a low coffee table in the middle.
  6. Brighten it up. If your living room has dark corners, purchase a tasteful upright lamp to help illuminate the area and provide an aura of intimacy.
  7. Channel your green thumb. Consider bringing in some plants to make the area feel fresh.

With these tips, your home will be much more appealing to potential buyers and sell quicker.
