Whether you are preparing your home for a private showing or getting it ready for an Edmonton Open House, the right home staging techniques will have your Edmonton Home For Sale looking like new!
Decorate Away. You don’t have to purchase new furniture or completely redecorate your home to make it attractive. Add a vase filled with fresh flowers on your dinette or a flat surface to give your room a fresh scent. Remove and declutter items from your front entrance such as coats or shoes. Consider purchasing some decorative pillows to go along with your couch.
Depersonalize. An important aspect to decorating is depersonalization, throughout your home remove any personal pictures or personal items. You want visitors to visualize themselves living in your Edmonton home for sale.
Let there be lighting. Is there a room in your home that has a dungeon-like feel? Consider adding new light fixtures or chandeliers to give that room an extra sparkle. Strategically placed mirrors serve as a window, giving the room dimension and brightening dark corners by reflecting light. For the rest of the house, open up the blinds and curtains to let in natural light. If the weather permits, pry open the window too so fresh air circulates throughout the room.
