One of the most common questions agents get from their sellers is "What is the best way to stage my home?". When you don't have a lot of money to invest in a professional home stager, there are some simple tips to help enhance your space. An easy staging secret is to lighten up in all the right places!

Lighting Tips 

To brighten rooms that receive less natural light than others, bring in additional floor lamps and brighter bulbs. 

Most people don’t want their house super, super-bright on the day-to-day, but when you go to sell, it’s really wise to get much brighter bulbs in every light if you feel that your house is a bit dark. Floor lighting and recessed lighting can enhance wall space and make the ceiling appear higher. 

Use mirrors to reflect and focus light toward the darker areas of a room. Even small table mirrors can help reflect light and draw focus to specific features of the room (Such as built-in shelves or bookcases.). Those small things can make a really big impact.
