5 Effective Condo Staging Tips


May 30, 2022

Most condos within the average price range tend to have cookie-cutter layouts. If you own a condo that you’re planning to sell, you’d be well-advised to have it staged to make it stand out from the rest.

Here are a few effective staging tips to get your condo ready for the market.

Keep Countertops Clear

Removing clutter from countertops is a cardinal rule when it comes to home staging. Not only does a cluttered counter look messy, but it also makes the space seem smaller than it actually is.

The more you can remove from your counters, the better. Just leave out a vase of fresh flowers instead.

Minimize Window Treatments

Condos are not known for their vast square footage, so you should do what you can to maximize the size of the space. And one thing in particular that condos are usually short on is windows.

To maximize the natural light that oozes in during the day – which is great for showings – is to minimize window treatments or eliminate them altogether if they block outdoor light sources. That means heavy drapes should be removed, along with any thick valances up top that droop into the window area.

Instead, stick to blinds or sheer fabrics draped to the side.

Replace Bulky Furniture With Sleeker Styles

Chunky furniture can seem as though they’re taking over your condo’s interior. These pieces do little except make the rooms in your condo appear weighed down. If possible, swap your bulky furniture for sleep pieces that take up less space – both physically and visually – without compromising function.

The good news is that your home stager will be able to take care of that for you!

Add More Lighting

You can’t do much about a lack of installed light fixtures, but you can add a few table and floor lamps to help illuminate the space a bit more. Added lighting can help brighten up an interior, which can help make it look as if the space is larger than it actually is.

Beef Up the Bedding

A great way to perk up your bedroom is to add some plush new bedding and pillows. Since your bedroom is likely on the smaller side, new bedding will make a big difference on the overall look of your bedroom.
