Staging for the Right Season!


Decorating for the season doesn’t have to mean covering a home in easter eggs and pumpkins; there are plenty of simple, inexpensive ways to stage listings for the seasons! This Summer, try applying some of our tips to your listings for a fresh and welcoming home!  



Summer is best known for its abundance in warmth and life. A great way to reflect the summertime in your home is by incorporating plants into the decor! Grab some simple vases and pots to house your plants and spread them across the home. These will not only add a bright, natural touch to the room but also help to freshen up the air! If the upkeep on plants gets to be too much, try fake ones! Fake flowers, plants, and succulents can be found in many stores and are usually fairly inexpensive. Try capturing the essence of Summer with the very things that define it! 



Another simple way to exemplify Summer is through color and lighting. Keep the room bright and sticking to soft, pastel colors! Natural light it an easy way to enhance the luminance of a room. If there isn’t a lot of natural light available in the home, try lightbulbs that produce soft, white light. For color, use vases, pillows, blankets, and whatever else you can for a pop of color! Soft pinks, purples, greens, blues, and yellows are perfect for the summertime. Additionally, the use of lighter woods, like driftwood or wicker, is a great way to keep the home bright. Experiment with different colors to find out which will best suit the house! 



A subtle way to get into the spirit of Summer is through music! Platforms like YouTube and Spotify have playlists dedicated to whatever mood you’re looking to set – including summertime! Play light, upbeat music to capture the essence of Summer from within the home. This will also help the ambiance transform into one of positivity and relaxation. If possible, try to create your own playlist in order to fit the expected clientele. Music has a way of bringing people together, and hopefully, your playlist will help bring in some more customers! 




But of all the Summer staging suggestions, the most important thing to remember is this: health is the number one priority. With every listing, be sure to continue following the proper CDC guidelines to ensure the health and safety of every person that comes your way. Wear masks, provide hand sanitizer, wipe down surfaces, and keep at least six feet of distance to stay safe!
