Holiday Staging Tips

The key to holiday staging tips is to not overdo it according to HGTV! Read up on some tips for staging your home during the holidays!

    • Stick to a few simple decorative touches, such as a pine cone centerpiece or an evergreen wreath.
    • Avoid using decorations that might clash with your current color scheme.
    • Use accessories to draw attention to the home's best features by hanging a few tasteful ornaments from the mantel to showcase an elegant fireplace or hang an evergreen garland around the bay window
    • Set the table to showcase holiday entertaining, most buyers look for a home they can easily entertain in!
    • Don't crowd our lawn with your favorite inflatables while your home is on the market. Instead resort to classic string lighting around shrubs and trees in your front yard.
    • Now its time to make your home warm and inviting! Light a fire in the fireplace or use some of the following tricks to make your home smell like the holidays:
      • Boil spices together such as cinnamon, vanilla, clove, allspice, and nutmeg
      • Pick a scented oil and use it with DIY projects to add a holiday scent to decorations!
      • Add dried lemon or orange peels to your fireplace for a nice scent!
    • Think about the size of your space and the size of your Christmas tree! If you have a smaller space think about a tall but skinny tree so it does not overwhelm your floor space.

So to wrap it just remember a few key details when trying to sell your home during the holiday season - light your fireplace, update outdoor lighting, make sure your home has a warm and inviting smell, make your home feel cozy, and make sure your holiday decorations look tasteful and are not overdone!
