Are you planning on selling your Austin Texas Home this summer? If so, you’ve come to the right place! In this article we will provide you with several staging tips for your living room and kitchen in your home so you can ultimately sell your home for top dollar.

Staging the Living Area

If your home as a main living area or family room there are several things you can do in this room so that when a buyer tours your home they will envision themselves living there.

Step 1 – Make symmetry a priority in this room: This includes buying matching lamps, pillows and wall art because, symmetry will create clean lines and make it easier for the average buyer to think about how they would use the space.

Step 2 – Light up this room with lamps: If the living area in your home only has one central light source you should light it up by purchasing chic lamps for this space because not only will they add extra light, more lamps will also add décor as well.

Step 3 – Remove some of the furniture from the room because this will help the living area in your home to look bigger and more spacious.

Step 4 – Create a “scene” in the living room by leaving a board game on the table or furniture arranged for conversational groups so buyers can envision how they could best use the space.

Staging the Kitchen

In the kitchen you really want to take extra time in staging this area of your Austin Texas Home because most homeowners will spend a lot of time here so it makes sense to show buyers what’s possible in your kitchen with the space that it offers them and you can get your kitchen ready by doing the following:

  •          Remove all items from the counter tops in your kitchen completely except for a fruit bowl or vase with flowers since clear counter tops will make your kitchen seem like it has more useable space.
  •          Keep one matching set of glassware, dishes, silverware and pots/pans in your kitchen because, matching sets will help your kitchen to seem more organized and clutter free.
  •          Paint or refinish your kitchen cabinets (if needed) and replace old knobs/pulls with new hardware.
  •          Clean up your appliances and replace older appliances with matching models.
