So why not use some of these elements in your home staging design to help draw in potential buyers? As long as you don’t go overboard with your holiday decor, you can use this festive season to make your home stand out while making sure you maintain a level of taste and sophistication.

Light Up Your Home

Lighting has always been an important part of home staging, and the festive season is definitely not a time to skimp on this important element. All of your regular lights should be functioning well and should be illuminating important spaces in your home, including all rooms, hallways, walkways, and the front entrance, to name a few. And when it comes to holiday lighting, add just enough to add some sparkle without giving your home a Clark Griswald vibe. Hang lights strategically so as to highlight architectural features or trees in your front yard.

Make Your Front Door Festive

Your front door makes a huge difference in the look and feel of your home from the outside and plays a key role in curb appeal. But during the holiday season, not only should you make sure that your door is in good shape, you should also consider sprucing it up to be in line with the time of the year. You can easily do this by hanging a cheery wreath. Go the extra mile by also adding a seasonal arrangement in the foyer to greet buyers as soon as they enter through the front entrance.

Spread Christmas Accessories Around

Cutting down on clutter is a definite must when it comes to home staging, but you don’t necessarily have to completely cut out the addition of Christmas accessories in your home. As long as you don’t go too crazy with your Christmas decor, there’s nothing wrong with adding a bowl of silver pine cones on your dining room table, a handful of ornaments on your shelves, and a few sprigs of holly on your console.

Infuse Seasonal Scents

When you think of the holiday season, you probably think of smells of pine, cinnamon, and gingerbread. As such, consider wafting these scents around your house, either with the real thing, or with scented candles.
