Home staging is preparing your home for sale in the marketplace. It will help make you stand out amongst your competitors and therefore hopefully lead to a quick sale. Staging focuses on improving your homes appeal. Most buyers walk into a home and only see what is in front of them. It tends to be harder for potential buyers to visualize what the home "could" look like. Therefore, we made a list of a few quick and helpful tips to get your home show ready.

1. De-Clutter: The most important thing you can do to stage your home is to clear out the clutter. Furniture can be a big contributor to the cluttered look. Too much furniture can make a room look smaller than it really is. Go room by room and ask yourself what you can live without.

2. Lighting: Lighting can make a home feel warm and welcoming. If you think your home seems a little dark, increase the wattage in your lamps and fixtures. You might also want to add another lamp. Don't depend on just one fixture to light an entire room.

3. Paint: To make a room appear bigger than it really is, paint it the same color as the adjacent room. This will essentially make both rooms feel like one big space. For large spaces like your living room, stick with neutral colors. Beige is a popular choice and has been for many years. If you want something different, you could try warm tans and honeys or even soft blue-greens.

4. Art: Most people hang their art/pictures in a line encircling the room. In doing this, it makes the artwork seem almost invisible because it doesn't stand out. Instead, hang your art and pictures creatively. This will draw attention to the art and will also show off the room.

5. Cabinets: If totally updating the kitchen isn't in your budget, just work with what you have. Paint your current cabinets and drawers and add new hardware.
