Staging Tips to Save You Money And Make Your Home Look Better
Use a statement mirror to reflect light & open your space
Liv Conlon, founder of ThePropertyStagers, suggests using a statement mirror to add a touch of glamour to your space. She points out it “reflects natural and artificial light, making the room appear brighter and more spacious.” Choose a mirror with an interesting frame or shape that complements your overall decor, she recommends, saying that “placing it strategically across from a window or opposite a light source will maximize its light-reflecting effects.” At 32 inches around, this rustic wooden wall mirror is a captivating option. It flaunts a chic sunburst design, exuding vintage charm with its torched wood finishes. With two keyhole mounting brackets, installation is easy.
Create a polished gallery wall with a mix of posters & paintings
“Create a gallery wall with inexpensive framed prints or posters,” says Smith. “Choose a cohesive theme or color palette for a polished look.” Elevate your home decor with this seven-piece gallery frame set. This carefully curated collection includes one 11 by 14 frame, two 8 by 10 frames, and four 5 by 7 frames. With white beveled mats and hanging hardware for easy wall display, these frames add a touch of elegance to any room. Crafted from durable engineered wood, they feature polished, tempered shatter-resistant glass fronts to preserve your photographs.
Pay attention to how your living space smells
Martin Orefice, CEO of Rent To Own Labs, recommends giving your home a “thorough top-to-bottom cleaning, with special focus on eliminating cooking smells from the kitchen and cleaning any carpeting or upholstery.” Then, he suggests adding a subtle fragrance to create ambiance. The New Home candle from Homesick has notes of jasmine, cedarwood, lime, sandalwood, oakmoss, and musk for a refreshing, nature-inspired scent that can burn for up to 80 hours. Plus, the minimal style of the jar looks good on a coffee table.
Transform a seating area with texture & color
“Another important element in transforming a room is the use of textiles,” Rudolph Diesel, a London-based interior designer, says. “Adding curtains, rugs, and throw pillows can instantly add color, texture, and warmth to a space.” Indulge in the plush comfort of these corduroy pillow covers, available in over 30 beautiful colors. Crafted from high-quality polyester, these covers are both super soft and durable. The invisible zipper closure in a matching shade ensures an elegant look and easy insertion for your favorite pillow. Cleaning is a breeze with machine-washable convenience.
Employ the help of multifunctional storage ottomans
Zev Freidus, founder of ZFC Real Estate, says, “Invest in storage ottomans that serve dual purposes.” He suggests checking out the affordable options on Amazon like this folding storage ottoman which comes in a variety of colors and patterns. “Not only do they provide additional seating, but they also have ample storage space to hide away clutter,” Freidus notes. This versatile piece doubles as a footstool, linen chest, or entryway bench, and its foldable design works well for small spaces. Featuring a chic faux leather cover, it blends style with function. Lift the lid to reveal a spacious compartment, ready to declutter your space. So, kick up your feet, store your stuff, and elevate your decor all at once.
