When staging your home to stand out on the market, choosing the right accessories that complement rather than distract from a room’s features can make all the difference in capturing buyer interest. Here are some of our tricks for giving a neutral room a subtle boost of energy and warmth that will create a lifestyle and mood to engage buyers.
Accent Pillows & Throws
We love mixing and matching pillows in different sizes, fabrics, colors and patterns to add texture and provide a fresh, custom look. Pair with a soft, faux fur throw draped on sofas, chairs and beds and your living room, family room or bedroom will instantly come to life.
Wall art should complement the decor of the room and enhance the color theme. It should be large enough to fill a space but not overpower the room. Mirrors placed above mantels or an entry console are also great for adding a focal point with style and elegance as well as making a room appear larger and brighter.
Rugs are one of our favorite accessories because they have multiple functions for staging a room -anchoring furniture, creating a focal point, adding texture and depth, hiding flaws as well as showcasing beautiful hardwood floors. Try layering and using neutral colors for the greatest impact.
Adding a simple arrangement of decorative items with varying textures and heights is a perfect way to bring an elegant touch to a side table, dresser, mantel or bathroom counter. Try mercury glass candle sticks or vases paired with potted white silk florals or grassy arrangements to bring a touch of natural serenity to the room.
