Interior Design vs Home Staging


An interior designer’s job is to incorporate a homeowner’s personal aesthetic with furniture and decorative items, reflecting the homeowner’s personal style. 


However, staging prepares your home for sale. The goal is to emphasize the positive features of the home. For example, a home stager will work to bring more natural light into the home or arrange furniture in a way that creates a larger more usable space. They may also suggest a neutral color palette for the home to attract more buyers. Appealing to the largest number of potential home buyers will sell your home faster.

Proper staging can help you sell your home faster, and possibly for more money.

1. You’ll Increase the Likelihood of a Sale

When selling your home, the goal is to sell it fast and for the highest possible price. You can increase your chances for success if you stage your house before listing it.

2. Your Home Looks Well-Maintained

If you stage your house effectively, it will give buyers the impression of a well-maintained home. This puts buyers’ minds at ease, which is exactly what you want.

3. You Can Start Packing

You need to pack your belongings eventually when you move, so why not start now? When staging your house, you need to pack away personal items allowing buyers to imagine themselves living in the home.

4. Maximize Your Space

Home staging has a lot to do with space. You want to remove clutter and arrange furniture in a way that maximizes usable space within the house. This gives the impression of a larger home.

5. Buyers Can Imagine Themselves in Your Home

When you stage your house, you are removing personal touches so that others can envision living there. Unusual paint colors, exotic knickknacks, and personal photos are fine when you are living in the home, but they may not appeal to everyone.

6. Your Home Shows Better Online

Today most home searches begin online. Your photos are the first impression buyers will receive. A staged home photographs better which will entice buyers to see your home in person. Your home will be in a positive light before they even walk through the front door.
