Just make sure that you decorations help make your home look stylish and inviting. Follow these decorating tips for selling your Venice home this holiday season!

 

Clean and Stage Your Home. As is the first step whenever you are selling your home, you need to do a thorough cleaning of your home. Once the home has been cleaned, stage every room as you normally would.

 

Declutter. Remove all non-essential items. Depersonalize your home by storing personal photographs and collectibles. Make sure that countertops are cleared off. Only keep furniture in the rooms that help make them look their best. You want home buyers to be able to picture themselves in your home.

 

Be Mindful of Your Palette. Use decorations that match your home’s current decor. Pick items that complement the paint colors you already have in order to avoid any clashing. Use rich tones with earth colors or soothing colors with blue tones.

Less Is More. Avoid filling your home with too many decorations. This can distract potential buyers. Instead focus on ways to accent your home’s best features with your holiday decor.

 

Trim the Tree Thoughtfully. Although personalized ornaments are part of the fun of Christmas, wait until you are celebrating in your new home to use them. Instead, use a cohesive theme on your tree. Also, be mindful of the size of your tree. Make sure that it does not overwhelm the space.

 

Keep It Neutral. Remember that people celebrate different holidays during the season. Try to avoid overtly religious decorations to avoid putting off some buyers. Focus more on neutral, seasonal decor.

 

Make It Cozy. Create a warm atmosphere in your home with festive scents. You can also add subtle decorations such as pinecones and evergreen wreaths. A glowing fireplace also helps make your home extra cozy.

 

Accentuate the Exterior. Use simple string lights to draw attention to the outside architecture of your home or to the landscaping. Make sure to keep it simple outside. Avoid using over the top light displays and decorations this year to maintain beautiful curb appeal.
