Staging In Spring
Any home stager will tell you that “staging is staging” and the principals remain the
same throughout the year—keep things clean, clutter free and colorful. But that
doesn’t mean each season comes without its own brand of staging magic. For spring,
there are a number of things you can do both inside and outside to take advantage of
the beautiful
Barb Schwarz, creator of Homes Staging® and CEO of Stagedhomes.com, suggests
adding splashes of color to your porch with potted flowers. She favors larger pots
bearing tulips or daisies with greenery in the middle and placed on each side of the
front door. Bringing spring colors into a home is just as easy, especially with
accessories like throw pillows, area rugs, artwork, towels and bedspreads.
“Change accessories and the whole house changes,” Schwarz said. Swap-out
decorative pillows on a sofa for a fresh, new look. “This year, nature colors are really
in; green is really big and hot orange is an accent that is strong.”
Designers recommend using other knickknacks that speak of spring, such as pears,
eggs, sea shells, nature, leaf patterns in fabrics, wicker, real leather and rust metal as
contrast. Schwarz says it’s also a good idea to replace the drapery panels in a home or
office. She recently changed a den from a daisy pattern in blue to cream plain panels
that went from ceiling to the floor “and the whole room looked bigger and more
elegant,” she said.
Of course, all rooms in the house are important and there are ways to liven up each as
the spring season blooms. You want the buyer to buy the whole house, not just one or
two rooms staged, so it’s important to create a cohesive design.
Yet don’t forget your “great outdoors.” Clean up your yards, remove fallen leaves and
dead plants and trim bushes and hedges.
Indeed, spring brings more buyers so take advantage of all that the season has to offer.
