Staging Your Home to Sell

Getting the Job Done

Staging your home - El Dorado Hills

The following "staging tips" by award-winning interior designer Lorna Oppenheimer will help your home look its very best.

• Check the visibility of your house numbers; repaint or polish if necessary

• Create an inviting walkway by adding color with annuals and a new doormat to brighten your home and welcome buyers

• Open windows every day to let in fresh air and appeal to buyer's sense of smell by creating an inviting feeling by lighting candles or baking

• Sharpen the look of your rooms by paying attention to detail - polish knobs and handles and replace lights in bathrooms and kitchen as necessary

• Turn on all lights, especially at night, to highlight your home's amenities

• Create a focal point in your entryway by adding a picture, lamp or plant

• Remove furniture to make rooms appear larger and allow for a clear traffic pattern

• Unify the accent pieces and details in your home - replace old lampshades, bedspreads and bath towels and coordinate matching area rugs, pillows and candles throughout all rooms

• Try to make a child's room minimally personal and make sure it is safe

• Always test your doorbell to be certain it is in good working order

• Move your best pieces of furniture toward the front of each room and your least attractive pieces toward the back

• Hang all pictures on the low side and hang mirrors across from windows that get a lot of light or have a view

• Set your dining room table for a decorative appeal

• Place plants and fresh flowers in rooms to add vibrancy and freshness

• Use big, bright or bold accessories to draw attention to important areas of the room

• Try not to be present when potential buyers are viewing your home; if you are present, keep conversation to a minimum


Our goal is to get the most money for your home, a good first impression is huge. Prior to listing your home we will do a walk through and advise what to change for the best appeal. If hiring a professional home stager is necessary, we will set up a consultation with some of the best interior designers.
