When you’re selling a home in Lake City, you know you need to stage it so buyers can really get a feel for what it’s like living there – but what do you do about a small house? Can you still stage it effectively?
The answer is yes! Just follow these five tips for staging a small home in Lake City.
5 Tips for Staging a Small Home in Lake City
First things first: Clean your house from top to bottom. Then you can dive in and:
- Let in extra light
- Paint every room the same color
- Put away colorful designs and patterns
- Raise shower curtains and window treatments
- Take out your rugs
Let in Extra Light
The more natural light you can let in, the better. Add high-wattage, daylight-toned bulbs to your fixtures, take down unnecessary window treatments that shut out the sun.
Paint Every Room the Same Color
Small homes really need to feel connected – and the best way to do that is to use the same color from the kitchen to the bedroom. If you can, reduce contrast all over your house (including with your décor) because it makes the home feel more spacious.
Put Away Colorful Designs and Patterns
Colorful designs and loud patterns, even if you love them, can make buyers feel claustrophobic. Wild designs are a lot to take in, and in a small space, they can quickly overwhelm potential buyers.
Raise Shower Curtains and Window Treatments
You can make the whole home feel larger by raising your window treatments by at least 6 inches – and do the same for your shower curtain. Even if it’s just the illusion of space, it goes a long way.
Take Out Your Rugs
Rugs can really define rooms, but in a small space, you want the floors to blend and create a more open feel. Take out all the rugs and stick them in storage – you can pull them back out again in your new home.
