5 ways to stage your home on a budget

Selling your home can be stressful, yet it doesn’t have to be. Here are some quick tips on how to stage your home on a budget. 

Home staging is an essential part when selling your home. It’s a buyer’s first impression, and first impressions are everything. While it’s intimidating, staging doesn’t have to come with a massive price tag. There are some quick ways to make your home look expensive to a potential buyer while staying on budget.

First things first, declutter your home 

When selling your home, you need to start by getting rid of items that are closing up the space. While the extra two dining chairs in the corner might make sense to have in your home, not every potential buyer will relate. 

A clean space is the first thing to do to make a room feel much more inviting and spacious. But most importantly, open to imagination!  


As a potential buyer, it is difficult to picture yourself in a space that is not already yours when you see several personal items. Another crucial part of decluttering is the part where you hide your personal belongings, like family photos, kids’ drawings, and more. 

Coordinate your home decor

Another way you can make your home look much more inviting is to coordinate fabric patterns, and colours. It not only gives every design aspect of your home a purpose but also makes a room feel much more expensive. 

If you pick a specific shade of blue for the bathroom, maybe bring that into your curtains or pillows in the living room. These small details can make a big difference. 

Tip: Try neutral shades that can be versatile like whites, creams, or light blues. 

Fresh flowers 

Bring in some greenery! Fresh beautiful flowers can make a space feel inviting, and expensive! A small flower arrangement, that you can pick up on your way to the grocery store is a simple thing you can do to make your home staging stand out.

Only focus on the rooms that matter

Not every room is as important to a potential buyer, focus on the ones that will make a big impact like the living room, the master bedroom, or the kitchen! 

With these easy affordable tips, you can make your home feel more spacious and inviting for all potential buyers!
