3 Tips on How to Decorate Your House for a Listing, Hamilton, Ohio

When staging and selling a house, it’s important to focus on keeping the decor clean and simple. This will help you attract a wider pool of prospective buyers for a more expedited sale. To provide some helpful inspiration, here are three tips for decorating your home prior to listing it.

3 Decorating Tips for Selling a House

1. Focus on Neutral Colors

When it comes to colors, you want to steer clear of anything too bold or dark. Deeply saturated walls and decor can quickly turn off prospective buyers and can also make the space appear smaller. Instead, focus on a neutral color palette of whites, soft grays, and light earth tones to appeal to a wider audience and create a clean, spacious appearance.

2. Neutral Furniture & Proper Positioning

Not only will it make the space appear larger, it also lends more of a homey feel. That said, you want to avoid loud, bold fabric patterns in favor of neutral colors and designs. If you have a lot of taste-specific furniture, you can always cover it with a neutral slip cover during showings. Furniture positioning is crucial as well. Allow plenty of room for foot traffic and position the furniture in a way that works with your existing space and opens it up.

3. Keep It Simple

When selling a house, the simpler you can keep the décor, the better. Remove as many personal details from the space as possible, including family photographs and religious relics, as these can make it more difficult for potential buyers to mentally place themselves in your home. Focus on creating clean lines and use minimal decor that’s more traditional in style.
