Holiday Home Staging

The Lowcountry is a wonderful place to be during the holiday season! With endless natural beauty, festivals and events, it is one of our favorite times of the year! If you’re looking to sell your house, you will want to make sure to stage your home perfectly to entice potential buyers. Making your home appealing to buyers is one of the most important steps in selling your house, and with the holidays here, your options for making your house look like your buyers’ dream home are nearly limitless. Here are some fantastic holiday home staging tips that are sure to impress anyone that walks through your doors. 


Keep It Simple!

Have you ever heard the saying “less is more?” When it comes to holiday home staging, this idea couldn’t ring truer. Use simple and clean holiday decorations anytime you stage your home during these seasonal months. Keep your décor within your color scheme. If you happen to have a white palette for your living room, keep your tree the same. Have small and tasteful decorations on your tree to help tie the room together. This can be said also for neutrals. Also, keep your tree in earth tones and it won’t overpower the general space. Use decorations to highlight the positives. Have a gorgeous mantle? Decorate it with a few well-placed ornaments. Hang mistletoe in the doorway to highlight it. A well-dressed table goes a long way, as well. Potential buyers can imagine themselves enjoying this holiday when you have a table set for a feast.


Make It Cozy!

The art of making a house a home is something we all strive for, and coziness is one of the things that can make potential buyers enjoy being in your home. Here are just a couple of ways you can amp up the coziness without overpowering the space. Add a touch of warmth to your home. When you think of the holidays, you think of cozy times spent with family and friends. Light up the fireplace before you show your house. If it’s too hot on that day, emulate it with seasonal scented candles instead. Make your home smell like the holidays! This is a simple tip that goes a long way. There are many recipes out there that are easy to create on your stovetop or in the oven and will also add a wonderful touch. Cookies, anyone?


Don’t Forget the Outside! 

You can use the ideas and tips from above to help decorate the space outside your home, too. Curbside appeal is something that matters any time you are selling your home, so be sure to add it to your holiday home staging ideas. Just like the inside, these should be simple and sweet! Keep the décor to a minimum with a few strands of lights and some wreaths. Play up the space you have. Do you happen to have a charming front porch? Play up the best parts of it. Whether it is space or architectural detail, make sure they can see it. Be sure to plant seasonal flowers to add color. Here in Charleston, we are fortunate to have milder winters and have certain flowers that will do well in the colder months. Be sure to see what will work for your area and home.
