When you are trying to sell your home, there’s a lot of things on the to-do list. One thing you should not neglect is the power of staging. Making your home look appealing to interested eyes will bring you more offers and potentially higher bidders. Staging well can be difficult. You want a neutral space that potential homeowners can see themselves in, however, you don’t want it to be dull. As you are staging, consider adding plants to your living spaces. The natural elegance of a plant uplifts the entire home while also keeping a neutral, natural tone. In addition to our expertise in moving and storage, our team at All Points Moving & Storage has all the information you need on using plants to stage your home.
What to Avoid with Plant Staging
As previously stated, you want the plants in your space to be neutral and inviting. So a wild, exotic and colorful plant is probably not the most ideal. Additionally, you can say the same for your large, bushy plants. Plants with lots of dense foliage can give off the idea that the place is crowded or cluttered. Sticking to compact, simple greenery is a great rule of thumb. Speaking of thumb, you don’t have to have a green one to do this. Using live plants are ideal and they don’t have to be difficult to maintain. However, should you buy fake plants, just make sure they are high quality and kept free of dust and debris.
Great Plant Staging Ideas
Plants are such a great way to add classy decor to any space. Mixing fresh cut flowers into a vase adds dimension into your space. If you have a front porch, adding a large pot of greenery or a cute, decorative plant element can give a great first impression before they ever walk into the house. Once inside, adding another small, compact plant to your entry table makes your space simple and yet inviting. As you walk into the dining room, here is where a beautiful bouquet of flowers can be shown off. Fit it to the scale of your table and allow it to brighten the room. Within the corners of the living room, a tall plant like a ficus, bamboo, or palm can help bring magic into the space. Smaller plants or even succulents on the shelves give you minimal work to do but keep your shelves in the office and living room looking less cluttered. Adding plants like a peace lily, lavender or gardenias into the bedroom can both help filter the air and add a calming presence to the space. The same can be said for the bathroom!
No matter what type of home you have, there has never been a space that didn’t benefit from a little amount of greenery. Using plants to stage your home is a great way to appeal to the buyer’s eye.
