When you’re selling your home in DC Ranch, you need to make a good impression on prospective buyers. Typically, buyers start forming a first impression when they pull up outside your home for a tour – and they’ll carry their impression of your curb appeal into the foyer. To keep the momentum going strong, it’s a good idea to stage your foyer to sell. Even better, guests tend to linger in the foyer to talk to their own REALTORs® after a tour, which means they’ll get a great last impression of your home if you stage this space properly.
So where do you start?
How to Stage Your Foyer to Sell Your Home in DC Ranch
Your real estate agent might suggest that you hire a professional home stager – but if that’s not in the cards for you, you can do it yourself with a few tips and tricks from the pros. Use these four tips to stage your foyer like an expert:
- Keep everything organized and neat as a pin
- Maximize storage space in the foyer
- Let natural light illuminate your space
- Create a focal point
Let’s take a closer look at each of these tips.
#1. Keep everything organized and neat as a pin
Clean and clutter-free is the way to go in your foyer. You never want the area to feel small or confined, so take out everything you normally keep there, like shoes, handbags and jackets. You want to make it visually larger, even if it’s a cozy space, and the best way to do that is by removing everything that’s not a piece of furniture or decor.
#2. Maximize storage space in the foyer
A foyer table, bench or cubby can be a wonderful addition to your space. If you already have one, that’s great – and if you don’t, you might want to consider getting one if there’s enough room in the foyer. You can choose something simple and elegant, or you can pick something with cubbies, drawers and shelving. However, if you choose one with cubbies and shelves, make sure you don’t use them to their full potential; the goal is to minimize a cluttered appearance.
#3. Let natural light illuminate your space
People want to see the sun shining into the house through your foyer, so open the blinds and make sure the foyer isn’t dark. The brighter it is, the more welcoming it will look – and bright natural light makes the foyer appear even larger, too, which means it’s a win-win. Make sure you have plenty of artificial light for evening showings, as well, so when the sun can’t do its job to help you sell your home, your chandelier or wall lighting can pick up the slack.
#4. Create a focal point
If you can use an unusual piece of furniture as a focal point in your foyer, it’s an idea worth exploring. If not, that’s okay too – but you should make sure you have a focal point. It can be a large mirror, which will reflect light and make the space look larger, or it can be a hanging tapestry or large piece of art. Think about how you feel when you walk into a foyer, whether it’s in an office building or a home, and picture what you can do to make your own space more welcoming to prospective buyers.
