Do's & Don'ts When Staging Your Home this Holiday Season

The holiday season is just around the corner. Holiday home staging is a fine balancing act for those trying to sell their home. This isn’t the best time of year to market a home, but for those with no other option, it’s helpful to know that most buyers looking at this time of year are serious about buying.

Before doing any holiday decorations to your home staging, make sure you have followed staging best practices. Check out our ultimate checklist to make sure you don't forget anything!

Don't: Overdue Holiday Decorations

Do: Add Holiday Adornments Sparingly

The less-is-more mantra of home staging also apply to the holiday season. However adding a few subtle touches like a pinecone centerpiece, an evergreen wreath or a pot of cider simmering on the stove can create a warm and festive feeling in your home. Make sure to avoid overtly religious flourishes, which may be off-putting to some buyers.

Don't: Use clashing bold colors

Do: Compliment Your Palette

Make sure your holiday collection matches your current decor. If your living room has a clean, all-white color scheme, skip the clashing red garland and opt for a white tree, white candles and silver glass ornaments. If you've got an earthy color scheme, accent with rich tones like cranberries, forest greens, and gold.

Don't: Overdo the Scent

Do: Keep it cozy

Subtle touches that create a holiday vibe work wonders.A bowl of scented pinecones in the center of your table. A wreath hung over the fireplace gives a sense of warmth and a wonderful evergreen smell to complete the festive feeling.

Don’t: Have large blow-up displays or lights outside

Do: Keep it classy for your curb appeal

Keep away from large blow-up displays of snowmen or lights that pulse to the beat of a Christmas Carol. Instead, stick with simple lights and a small display on your porch this year.
