5_Inexpensive_Staging_Tips_to_Update_a_90s_Home

All of you are so curious about home staging…

We get so many questions on how we do what we do when it comes to staging homes… especially homes that are outdated compared to today’s styles!

Every time we finish a staging we are BLOWN AWAY at the difference new artwork, lamps, pillows, bedding, and decor can make on a home.

And guess what?! Those items can do the same for YOUR outdated home! Our pro tip: don’t get overwhelmed! Start with one room at a time! Your wallet will thank you for that as well. 🙂

There is no need to rush! Gradually make room in your budget to upgrade each room in our house!

Ok ok… here is what you all want to see!

BEDROOM STAGING GOALS:

In every bedroom we stage, we always:

  • declutter
  • add new artwork
  • add new bedding and pillows
  • add white curtains
  • add new lamps
  • add basic decor

See the difference these items make?! Go back and look at the before and after pictures to pick out what we changed! You can do the same in your home!

BASEMENT STAGING GOALS:

In every basement we stage, we always:

  • think about what the space is going to be used for… in this example, it has the most seating for watching TV on a projector!
  • bring in pieces to lighten up the dark space
  • we don’t go all out on the basement… for most potential homebuyers the basement is just a bonus to purchasing the house!
  • add a vibe to it where potential buyers feel they can hang out and entertain
  • add artwork
  • add pillows
  • add throw blankets
  • add decor

But what about the bathroom?!

In every bathroom we stage, we always:

  • remove all personal items from counter and shower
  • add artwork if necessary
  • hide trashcan, plunger, and toilet bowl cleaner
  • add white bath and hand towels
  • add decorative soaps in a cute holder
  • add plants to freshen up the place. We love using orchids!

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN 🙂

What place in your house could use an upgrade?!

Remember… start with one room! And go from there!

P.S. a staged home is not the same as the home you live in… it won’t always look like the pictures we have here. Trust us… if you saw our bedroom right now – you’d be scared. 🙂

What design makes you happy?! Do more of that when slowly upgrading your home!
