When it comes time to sell your home, it’s important the house is presented to prospective buyers in a way that will entice them. However, if you’re on a tight budget with little time to get the home on the market, it can be hard to get the whole house ready to sell.

If you are in a situation where you cannot have a home stager get your entire house show-ready, optimize your time and budget by focusing on getting these five rooms staged!

Living-Room1. The Living Room

The living room is the space in the house where the family and any guests would congregate and spend majority of their time. When buyers are viewing a house, they will want to be able to look at a space and know they’ll have enough room to entertain friends and family, and relax.

A home stager will be able to declutter your living room space, add a fresh coat of paint to the walls, get your flooring professionally cleaned, and accessorize and depersonalize the space to make it more inviting to potential buyers.

After2. The Kitchen

Considered the heart of every home, a premium kitchen is a big selling point for buyers. Having an open concept kitchen with plenty of room for cooking, storage and entertaining is important for potential buyers.

By decluttering the countertops, cabinets and pantry, repairing any broken appliances, adding a fresh coat of paint to cabinets, and placing accessories throughout, home staging can get your kitchen ready to sell.

3. The Master Bedroom

AfterThe master bedroom is an important room for potential buyers to like because this is a space where they’ll spend their evenings. It’s important the master bedroom is viewed as a luxurious hotel room escape; not a mixed space.

A home stager will ensure the carpets are clean, the closets are not packed full, the walls are a neutral and relaxing color, and the room itself is not cluttered. The space can then be enhanced by accessorizing with lamps, throw pillows, quilts, and artwork.

4. The Bathroom

Think about the feeling you get when you walk into a bathroom that is grungy and cluttered. Regardless of how nice the rest of the house was, that bathroom just ruined it for you.


The bathroom needs to give off a spa-like feel. A home stager will remove any old wallpaper and replace it with a fresh coat of paint. Then, they’ll declutter toiletries and other personal products, replace grout and caulk, and even the vanity if needed. To put the finishing touches on the bathroom, accessorize with neutral towels and a clean, white shower curtain.

After5. The Dining Room

Similar to the kitchen and living room, the dining room holds the high task of entertaining people. Buyers need to walk into the space and picture having friends and family over for dinner parties.

A home stager will have the space reflect the living room and kitchen designs, with fresh flooring, lighting and furniture. Then, the room will be topped off with an eye-catching center piece.
