Any good real estate professional knows the importance of staging a home that’s for sale. That said, did you know that staging tactics can change with time. Of course, there are those tactics that remain crucial all the time like depersonalizing and decluttering your home, adding a fresh coat of paint, and making repairs, but each year ushers in new trends and these trends can help you sell your home faster.
Without further ado, here are the hottest staging trends for 2021. Read up, pay attention, and put them in play to get the most out of the sale of your home.
1. Warm, Inviting Tones are Coming Back Strong
2020 and previous years had us embracing a minimalistic look with stark whites and shades of gray, but after spending an entire year in quarantine, today’s homes feature warm, inviting tones that create a homey feel.
While it’s true that grays have been in for as much as a decade or so, they are being replaced by warm beiges – not yellow beiges like were popular before the grays – but warm beiges that encourage a neutral, warm palette.
2. Homes with Creature Comforts are In
As the pandemic rages on and everyone is spending more time at home, we are realizing just how important our homes really are. To that end, buyers are looking for anything that makes a home more comfortable – a place they don’t mind spending a lot of time in.
You can stage your home to meet this need by adding extra throw pillows on the sofa, plush rugs on the floor, blankets, and even a staged tea and coffee area. If your home has the space, an outdoor dining area is also a plus.
3. Black is Back
In the luxury staging arena, there is more room for creativity and uniqueness, which is where black statement pieces come in. In years past, real estate professionals staged homes in neutral palettes, which doesn’t give anywhere for the eye to rest.
To break up the neutral palette and draw attention to a home’s best features, black statement pieces like a black framed art piece or a black marble kitchen island takes center stage in an otherwise bland backdrop.
If you’re selling your home and would like it to sell fast, place special emphasis on the staging process and try to incorporate the staging trends listed above.
