5 Tips for Designing Your Home for Sale

Preparing to list your home can be a daunting task in this competitive market, but stagers like studio D are here to help.

1. Plan your layout 

Be intentional and creative with the way you use your square footage. Arrange furniture in a way that allows for a natural flow of movement between rooms while maximizing each room’s functionality. Place a desk (or table) and chair in the corner of a bedroom to create a home office space.

2. Use Furnishings That Are to Scale

If you have a small, narrow living room, get rid of your bulky sectional and opt for a love seat and two small accent chairs instead. Alternately, if your master bedroom is massive, spring for a King bed.

3. Choose a Neutral Color Palette

A subtle and sophisticated palette of whites, grays and beiges appeal to a majority of buyers and can make a room feel larger.

4. Accessorize with Color + Texture

Metallic pops instantly make a room feel more luxe— try a chrome coffee table or pair of gold lamps — as do richly textured accessories. We love sheepskin throw pillows and faux fur blankets.
