When it is time to prepare a home for sale Chicagoland Home Staging looks at all aspects of the home staging process. Most experts suggest cleaning and decluttering to improve the property but, it’s not the only projects to check off the to-do list. Here are four unconventional home staging tips every home seller should consider to get the maximum return on their investment.

Create a Luxe Look

We believe every property has the potential to look expensive, it just depends on the finishings and furnishings. To get a customized high-end look for less our team starts by going neutral.

A neutral palette offers a timeless appeal in any home. When using a combination of whites, beiges and grays as a color scheme it creates an upscale look that’s easy to design with. Add luxurious textures and fabrics in the room to enhance a cozy atmosphere to relax in.

Lifestyle Vignettes

When staging a property, our team sets up vignettes — displays that can show a moment in time and often dress up a room to create a welcoming, lived in feel. Vignettes can vary from room to room and can be determined based on who the home buyer is and the lifestyle they want to lead. Vignettes are usually grouped items in odd numbers with varying heights, shapes even colors.

Illusion of More Space

Since home buyers are purchasing based on square footage, it’s important to look at the amount of space inside the property. We don’t want to overcrowd each room with lots of furniture. Instead we choose essentials that will provide enough space without bumping into the furnishings on display. Remember in most cases, less is more.

First Impressions

At Chicagoland Home Staging, we only have one chance to make a great first impression and that impression starts at the curb. Our team helps sellers overcome a property’s negative features from architectural issues, to design style to even how the home smells. Nothing is overlooked as we review the property during a home staging consultation.
