How to Use the Seasons to Your Advantage when Home Staging

You don’t always have control over what time of the year you end up listing your home, but one way to get it to shine above the competition — no matter the weather — is by using the seasons to your advantage when staging your home. Whether it’s spring, summer, fall, or winter, we have the know-how to get your home noticed and sold fast.

Winter

Use this time of year to add a little extra sparkle to your home by decorating for the holiday season, but be careful not to go overboard. To keep it inviting, stick to a tasteful, neutral, and wintery palette of colours by mixing whites, blues, and golds to keep it fresh and modern. Don’t forget to add some festive lights and décor to your exterior too. If you have a fireplace, switch it on to add some extra warmth and coziness to your home. Remember — viewing a home isn’t just about the aesthetics — it’s about the feeling that buyers experience when they walk through it.

Fall

Since the fall can be a messy season, make sure to clean up your front yard. Rake up the leaves, trim the hedges, and add some potted mums to give your curb appeal a boost of colour. The fall season is also a fresh, colourful, and aromatic time of year, so take advantage by adding some fall-themed accessories throughout your home. To add a touch of autumn to your interior, add textured pillows, plush towels to the bathroom, soft throws on the furniture, and even a lightly scented pumpkin spice candle to add some fresh aromas throughout.

Spring

With the blossoms and rain showers in full swing, get your home primped and primed by rolling up your sleeves and giving your home a good spring cleaning. Add fresh flowers throughout your home, change your winter bedding to something cheerier, add pastel colours using pillows and throws, scrub up your exterior to accentuate your outdoor space, and keep your home bright by pulling back the drapes.

Summer

Summertime is patio season, which means your front and backyard should be looking superb. Be sure to add some flowers to your garden, keep the grass cut, and set up a cozy seating area on your back or front patio. Then, add some seasonal flare inside by switching up your textiles to feature cool and refreshing tones, placing floral arrangements in your bathroom, kitchen, and living room.
