Spring is one of the most popular times to sell a house—but if you’re looking to part ways with your property in the coming months, it’s important to make sure you’ve staged it properly. Here’s everything you need to know about staging your home this spring.
Tend to Your Yard
When you live in Rochester, New York, lawn maintenance goes by the wayside during the colder months as snow piles up. But with spring just around the corner, it’s time to spruce up your yard and give your home some serious curb appeal. Start by clearing away any yard debris and branches that might have fallen during a winter storm. If necessary, you might need to trim your trees and hedges as well. Consider investing in potted plants and flowers to put on your porch or near the entryway to create additional allure.
Add Pops of Color
With the dreary days of winter finally behind us, it’s time to celebrate by making sure your home feels fresh and spring-like. If your interiors are somewhat dark, you might want to repaint key rooms with lighter, more inviting colors. To add a simple yet affordable dose of spring charm to your home, place bouquets of freshly cut flowers throughout your house. You can also leave a bowl of seasonal fruit on the counter, liven up the couch with a colorful throw, or put a seasonal welcome mat outside.
Incorporate Spring Aromas
To ensure your home smells clean and fresh, place a bowl of lemons on your kitchen counters. They’re a natural deodorizer, so they’ll remove the remnants of any smells from last night’s dinner. If you prefer, you can light a spring-scented candle or diffuse essential oils instead.
Do a Spring Cleaning
There’s no better time to get rid of all the things you no longer need—from unnecessary winter clothes to old pieces of furniture that have seen better days—than during the springtime. Once you’ve gotten rid of the items you don’t want anymore, you can restage your rooms as needed to get rid of any clutter and create an understated, livable space.
