When you’re selling your home, whether it’s a luxury home in Brush Creek Village or a condo in Basalt, you’re going to need to invest some time in staging it to appeal to the widest possible range of buyers. Many homeowners choose to hire a professional stager, and if that’s the route you’d like to go, let your Aspen Realtor® know—she can recommend a local professional with a great track record.
However, if you’re doing it yourself, like many homeowners do, here’s what you need to know about the living room. (You can also learn more about staging your closets and your master bath.)
How to Stage Your Living Room When You’re Selling Your Home in Aspen
The most common focal points in a living room include its fireplace, the entertainment center (especially if it’s built in), and its windows. The idea, then, is to highlight those features with accents so potential buyers notice how attractive they are.
You can also create your own focal points. A bold piece of furniture, framed mirrors, or groups of conversation pieces on a coffee table are excellent accents.
As you’re staging your living room, remember that it’s a good idea to:
- Arrange accents in odd groupings (groups of three, five, or seven are best)
- Use bright accent colors
- Arrange your furniture in vignettes
- Use mirrors to add depth to the room
- Open all the window coverings to let in as much light as possible
- Place a live plant (or two) somewhere to brighten the space
