3 Tips for Staging Outdoor Living Space
Check out these three simple tips for staging a back patio, deck or other outdoor living space:
- Give the space a purpose
- Use plants
- Make sure there’s lighting
Here’s a closer look at each.
Tip #1 for Staging Outdoor Living Space: Give the Space a Purpose
although buyers are free to do whatever they’d like with an outdoor living space, it helps for you to push their imaginations along by staging what you have. that may mean adding seating, a fire pit, a grill or something along those lines so buyers realize that the space is actually an extension of the home. Perhaps you’ll choose to add a pair of rocking chairs to your back porch, some attractive outdoor furniture circling a fire pit, or even a hanging egg chair that serves as a great outdoor reading nook.
Tip #2 for Staging Outdoor Living Space: Use Plants
Your back patio could use some potted plants, which buyers love to see. Choose native plants that don’t require a lot of care, but that look great. Some of the best include coleus, foxtail fern, lavender, nearly any type of potted palm, or pine.
