The two most important goals of the staging process? Maximizing the space and flow of your home.
When staging a house, it is important to remember that prospective buyers are far less interested in the interior design compared to seeing the attributes of the home. Buyers know that paint colors and curtains can be easily swapped out for something they like, so most buyers are more interested in assessing the bones of a home that are more permanent- such as the home’s layout and overall design.
You don’t need to get hung up on the way your home is decorated during the staging process, as this is less of a priority. Most people have their own unique personal style, and they will want to decorate a home to reflect that.
- When someone is touring your home, you want them to notice all of the open spaces and easy flow of the floorplan. The worst case scenario when someone is touring your home is for them to have difficulty moving around because they keep bumping into furniture or personal clutter.
If someone has a bad experience while touring your home, it psychologically affects the chances they will want to buy it, even if they liked it overall!
Even if you are selling a smaller home, you can always optimize each room to enhance the flow of the home. The idea is to make space for groups of people to easily walk through the home at the same time, and envision how that would work if they were hosting an open house at your home. So the number one question to ask with spacing is if there is room for families to walk through the home together.
