How to Use Lighting to Stage Your Lakeland Sandpiper Home for Sale

If you are thinking about selling your Lakeland Sandpiper home, make sure you stage it in the “right light.”

Settling into your new home in Sandpiper will be a new chapter in your life that will be an awesome experience!

Staging with the right light makes any room look better, bigger, and airier. It can create a dramatic mood, draw attention to your home’s best features, and evoke positive feelings in potential buyers viewing your home.

Another advantage of proper lighting is it’s less expensive compared to repainting or reflooring, but creates dramatic results.

A dark home can turn off potential buyers and even decrease the amount of money you get in offers so make sure your Lakeland Sandpiper home for sale is properly lit in order to help sell it faster and at top dollar.

Here are some room-by-room lighting suggestions to help you stage your Lakeland Sandpiper home for sale:

  1. All rooms: Use recessed down-lights installed in ceilings or high-hats with a dimmer control.
  2. Bedrooms: Make sure there is a table lamp, bedside lights, or a floor lamp to give a softer, more relaxing ambiance.
  3. Bathrooms: To reduce glare and shadow, you can angle recessed lighting to bounce the light off the walls and ceiling for a softer look. Over-vanity lights or wall-mounted sconces also work well beside the mirror. Your shower’s interior should have a light with uniform brightness.
  4. Kitchen: Group down-lights to focus on where it is most needed like the center island table o r sink.
  5. Replace old lighting fixtures with new, modern looking ones. Make sure to get fixtures that produce 200 to 300 watts.
  6. Use at least one halogen bulb per room and make sure that each room is lit brightly.

These extra lighting tips could use up more electricity, but it will surely make a huge difference in attracting buyers or in helping them decide in case they are still unsure whether or not to make an offer on your Lakeland Sandpiper home, since the right lighting will boost your home’s focal points and best features.

In the long term, the return on investment from the extra lighting will all be worth it once you sell your Lakeland Sandpiper home.
