If you'd like your house to be sold immediately, you want the “wow” expression on the potential purchasers face as they enter your home. So, house staging is crucial to de-clutter your things, and highlight the powerful points in your house. All you need is a storage unit to put your clutter or extra furniture, paint, bedding, shower curtain, flowers, throw pillows & a few small decorative pieces.

Dining Room and Kitchen
In staging your dining room, avoid the “staged home” set up where you set up the table and display your chinaware and wine glass.

Make sure to pay extra attention on your household appliances like your stove, fridge, kitchen counter and the sink too. A clean and organized kitchen is the way to go. 2 or 3 kitchen appliances on the counter tops is plenty. No fridge magnets, make sure the refrigerator is bare on the outside and neat and clean inside, less is more. It's also important to devote more lighting in the kitchen especially in the areas where slicing and cooking is done. If required, an additional lighting in dark areas is a good move. Always keep the motto “clean and bright” in mind.
When staging for the bedroom keep the short principle in mind “simple and straightforward.” Choose neutral colored fabrics and painting. Ensure that the room looks roomy and remove needless furniture that makes the room look smaller. Un-clutter the closet and make it look enormous by eliminating 80% of storage and clothes. Invest in bedding too. Buy neutral pillows and comforter to make the room more at ease and inviting to sleep in.
Your toilets should be “clean and updated”.
