Here are 5 evergreen tips to help you stage a home during spring.
Spring is a time of renewal and rejuvenation, making it the perfect season to stage your home for potential buyers. Home staging is the process of preparing a house for sale by creating an attractive and welcoming environment that appeals to a wide range of buyers.
As a realtor who has been in the career staging profession for the past 23 years, I have made use of these tips all my life and am so sure that they will work like magic for you. In this blog post, we’ll explore 5 simple tips and tricks for staging a home during the spring season.
Are you ready to know these tips? Let's get right into it!
Tip #1 - Enhance the curb appeal of the home.
Curb appeal refers to the visual attractiveness of a property or building as seen from the street or curb. It is the first impression a property makes on someone, such as a potential buyer, passerby, or guest.
The first impression is the most important when it comes to staging your home. With the arrival of spring, take advantage of the warmer weather and add some colorful plants and flowers to your front yard. Make sure your lawn is freshly mowed, and the walkway and driveway are clean and free of debris.
A property with good curb appeal is likely to generate more interest and potentially a higher resale value.
Tip #2 - Let the natural light in.
Natural light has many benefits for a home, both aesthetically and functionally. It makes a home look more spacious, open, and inviting. It also highlights the architectural details and features of a space, creating a more beautiful and appealing environment.
Spring is the perfect time to showcase the natural light in your home. Make sure to open up all the curtains and blinds to let the sunshine in. If you have any dark rooms, consider adding some extra lighting to brighten up the space.

Tip #3 - Add fresh touches to the home.
I always tell my PPSLI staging students to do this as fresh flowers not only have a way of adding a touch of beauty, elegance, and freshness to a house but also create a warm and inviting atmosphere, making guests feel more comfortable and relaxed in the home.
Spring is all about freshness and renewal, so make sure to incorporate some fresh touches in your home staging. Consider adding a vase of fresh flowers or a bowl of fruit to your kitchen table. You can also swap out your throw pillows and blankets for lighter, brighter options to give your space a more seasonal feel.
Tip #4 - Declutter and clean.
Spring cleaning is a great opportunity to declutter and organize your home. Make sure to clear out any unnecessary items and give your home a thorough cleaning. This will not only make your home look more attractive to potential buyers, but it will also help you to feel more organized and refreshed.
Tip #5 - Focus on the outdoors when home staging during spring.
During spring, many potential buyers will be looking for a home with outdoor living space. Make sure to highlight any outdoor areas you have, such as a patio or deck. Add some comfortable seating, and consider adding some potted plants or flowers to create an inviting outdoor oasis.
In conclusion, spring is a great time to stage your home for potential buyers.
By enhancing your home’s curb appeal, letting the light in, adding fresh touches, decluttering and cleaning, and focusing on the outdoors, you can create an attractive and welcoming environment that appeals to a wide range of buyers. With these tips in mind, you’ll be well on your way to a successful home sale.
