When staging a home, it can be challenging to come up with creative ways to make your listing stand out from the crowd. This can be especially difficult during the spring selling season, when florals reign supreme.
While incorporating colorful, fresh flowers and flower prints into a home can feel like a breath of fresh air after the winter, by the time May comes around almost everyone will have exhausted the trend. Here are four ways you can spring-ify your listing, sans florals:
- Replace bouquets with house plants. A small, indoor plant serves the same function that a bright floral bouquet does. Not only do they add a bright element to your interior décor, but they don’t need to be replaced as frequently as their floral counterpart.
- Burn a spring-scented candle.Candles add a welcome visual and stimulating olfactory component to any open house. Missing the sweet smell of flowers? There are tons of subtle floral-scented candlesto choose from. You may even forget the arrangement isn’t actually there!
- Add in pops of bright color.Whether you place bold statement furniture or add some colorful throw pillows to your sofa – incorporating splashes of color throughout your home gives your open house a fun, spring feel.
- Open doors and windows.An often over-looked task, dusting off and opening the doors and windows throughout a property reminds potential buyers of the beautiful weather outside. The sunlight and fresh air can boost moods, while making the home feel larger and more open.
