How to Stage a Vacant Home for a Quick Sale

If you are putting your home up for sale, renting furniture to fill out the rooms could give you the edge and see that you are rewarded with the best price. The kind of furnishings you have in every room of your home will give the first impression to any potential buyer. Furniture staging allows a seller to impress prospective homeowners with the look and feel of pristine furnishings that are placed in a design that best complements each room.

A vacant home without furniture can look too barren for buyers, and many will find it hard to visualise the living space they desire. A room may look bigger without any furniture in it, but less realistic to potential buyers. Recent data from the real estate industry shows that a staged home will sell faster and for more money than a home where furnishings have not been cleverly designed to show off all the features of each room.

The Best of Both Worlds

Renting furniture makes the most sense when trying to sell your home. It will save you the cost and hassle of buying furniture, which you then will have to move out later. You may have to end up paying extra for storage too, which may end up costing more unnecessarily if you need to store it for a long time without using the furniture.

If you rent your furniture from us, we’ll take care of the furniture, will provide it for you, and once the home is sold we can then take it off your hands. More importantly, we specialise in room design and we will work with you to ensure that your home gives off the best visual impression to prospective buyers, in each room. We are one of the leading companies to provide furniture rental in Perth for home staging, and here are some of our recommendations to follow:

Go Neutral

Pale and pastel colours make a room look bigger. Not only that, they look pure and inviting. Furthermore, neutral colours allow for an ‘empty pallet’, so that buyers can imagine the full potential of the room and the kinds of personal touches they may consider making. If the room already has your own personality built in, then this makes it harder for new buyers to see beyond that.

Even if you have lovely wallpaper or paint that gives the room a warm feel, it may be time for you to give the walls a new lick of paint. This will certainly freshen up the room at any rate. No need to go too pale, as white walls give off the impression of a sterile environment that then makes the room seem uncomfortable, but an off-white cream or pastel colour will make the room feel very inviting.

This can be complemented with coordinated soft furnishings, such as freshly-ironed pale bed sheets, cushions, and curtains. Other furniture can match this, such as natural wood colours for wardrobes, desks, or chairs, but no need for all of the furnishings to be exactly the same shade as this will give it more of a uniform look, and nothing will really stand out to prospective eyes.

Some rooms will fair better with less furniture than normally would be placed there. For example, bedrooms will look more spacious and more appealing with minimal furniture. Too much furniture in a bedroom gives it a cluttered feel. Our design experts are very experienced with house staging in Perth and will know exactly what to do to make your bedroom look its best.

How about the outside space? You can also follow the pattern of applying neutral colours to the patio furniture. You can make your outdoor furniture really complement the surrounding environment, this makes the outside space a real selling point of your home, too. Blue, yellow, and brown are ideal colours for staging outdoors spaces.
