Staging magic in a can

Staging magic in a can

March 8, 2010 | Barbara's Blog

A gallon of paint is one of the least expensive staging tools and the quickest way to change a room, it is staging magic in a can. One of the biggest mistakes sellers make is to paint everything white, which will make the interior of the home look clean, but does nothing to create emotions. The Goal: Make potential buyers feel and look great in your home.
Bring in some of the year’s neutral color trends with a coat of paint. Your walls will look fresh and buyers will get the impression your home has been updated. Using trendy NEUTRAL colors makes finding staging accessories much easier.

Please avoid: Painting your kitchen the red you’ve always wanted.

Red is the first color the human eye sees in the spectrum so place a red accessory near a room’s best feature to draw attention to it. For example, if you want to ensure that potential buyers notice your marble surround on your fireplace, put a pair of red candles on the mantel. This also works in reverse, if you have a view you’d like to de-emphasize place a red accessory on the other side of the room.
