Let There Be Light
When selling a home, few factors are more important than light. With the right amount, a space can feel more open, larger, and all-around more comforting. During a season where everyone wants to be outside, creating an uplifting vibe by taking advantage of the sun is essential. If you have large drapes or plants blocking the sun, remove them and use light-colored and lightweight window treatments. Is your home located near the beach? Add in enjoyable shore-themed accents that bring everyone’s favorite vacation destination indoors. When potential buyers make their way into your terrifically staged space, their eyes will light up when they are greeted by a wealth of sunshine.
The summer season is loaded with bright and vivid colors that truly capture the essence of the season. We love incorporating colorful flowers into the interior of homes that we stage to truly “wow” potential buyers and leave them with a memorable first impression. From beautiful flowers on a kitchen island to vibrant plants on a coffee table, there are so many opportunities to give your home a rich, organic, and lively feel.
Deck It Out
Does your home have a cozy and cute outdoor space? Don’t just leave it looking all boring! Whether it is a small deck or patio, get potential buyers excited by staging it with a table, chairs, colorful accent pillows, or even an area rug. If there is enough space for a dining area, adding additional plates and a centerpiece will add to the look in a marvelous way as well.
Cool as a Cucumber
As you know, the weather in New Jersey can really heat up during the summer season so be sure that you keep your home nice and cool! Provide potential buyers with an escape from the warmth by creating your own comforting oasis where they can let their guard down and truly experience what it would feel like to reside in your home. Not only will turning up the air conditioning help but offering refreshments will benefit you as well. From water to lemonade, everyone loves a satisfying, ice-cold beverage.
