One of the most important parts of the home-selling process is the home-buyer visitation period. Here, you want to do everything you can to impress these potential-buyers as they walk through your home and decide if it’s the place for them. Impressing your visitors goes beyond the unique amenities and features your house has to offer— you have to present it in an attractive way, through home staging. Royal Oriental makes this process much easier, with our many rugs for sale and our interior design services. We’ve helped many Tampa residents stage their homes with our rugs, and we can help you out too!
What To Keep In Mind
When it comes to styling your home for potential-buyer visits, there are a few basic principles to keep in mind. For one, you want home buyers to be able to picture themselves living there, not you. This means you may have to do some redecorating so that the style is not too personalized. A clean, simple, uncluttered space is best for showcasing your home, so neutral, soft colors and minimal knick-knacks are suggested. However, you don’t want your space to look stale, so a rug can be a great way to give your styled home a sense of style. Rugs can also be a great tool to direct and divert the eye to the places you want your visitors to notice. For example, if you want them to look up, a neutral toned rug that blends into the surroundings helps guide the eye up towards tall ceilings or a signature light fixture. If you want them to notice the floor, a bright, contrasting rug is a great eye pull.

Rug Tips for Home Staging
- Go Big or Go Home. Large area rugs are a simple way to add a pop of style and make your space feel bigger! (To maximize this effect, we’d recommend leaving at least 18 inches of floor space surrounding your area rug.)
- Stick to a Style. Is the rest of your décor modern? Your rug should be too then. Make sure your rug completes the space, by matching the tone and style of the rest of the home.
- Keep Within the Color Scheme. Too many contrasting colors can make a room feel cluttered and busy. However, with staging, many people stick with soft neutral colors, but a bright, distinctive rug color can bring it all together.
- Break Up an Open Concept. More and more homes are including open concept layouts, where the kitchen, living room, and dining room are all connected in one space. While this is great for socializing, you don’t want your home to feel like a one room, studio apartment. Ease the flow between rooms by sectioning off one space (such as the living room) with a large area rug.
