Selling Your Atlanta Home: 3 Ways You Can Stage Smaller Spaces

Posted by Wendy G Brown on Jan 8, 2016 in Real Estate

When it comes to selling your home, putting it in its best light is key when it comes to making the sale. While it may seem like you’re more limited with a smaller home, here are a few ways you can enhance what’s best and make a good impression on potential buyers.

Ideal Lighting

If you’ve ever taken note of a room on a perfectly lit day or a downcast one, the difference in how lighting can impact a space is marked. When staging your small space, you’ll want to check the lighting of each room and make sure it ideally enhances the space it’s illuminating as few things can improve the look of a place like lighting. If you’re prepared to go all out, you may even want to install a swanky chandelier or lengthy light fixture in certain rooms as it can draw the eye up and lengthen the look of your space.

Brighten a Room with an Accented Wall Colors

Many homeowners often think that bright colors are a bad idea in their home because they’re flashy and will minimize a space. If you use a brilliant color on one wall of a room it can actually maximize the look of your room and can serve as something memorable for viewers of your home. While you’ll want to make sure the color you choose isn’t obtrusively bright and showy. You don’t want to completely overwhelm the buyer’s eye. You may also want to keep in mind that an accented wall color works particularly well for enhancing a half-bathroom.

Place Statement Pieces

It might seem like unique or off-the-wall furniture pieces will overtake the room in a small living space, but one statement piece can actually provide potential buyers of your home with a unique look that may instill an interest in your house and highlight your home living areas in a unique way. Instead of choosing multiple pieces that are bright or quirky, stick with one or two items per room that will stand out and make themselves known and can still give off the living-style vibe that you’re going for.
