Outdoor Furniture and What It Says About Your Home



If you're lucky enough to have an outdoor space, you've definitely decorated it with furniture! But what if you're ready to sell? Home staging in The Woodlands shouldn't just focus on the indoor spaces at your property. Potential buyers love seeing a manicured and staged outdoor space. It can truly be a closing point in any home sale. So, what does your outdoor furniture say about you and your home? Here are some styles that speak volumes about your home and win over potential buyers.


Bistro Sets

Bistro sets are perfect for smaller outdoor entertaining spaces. They are quaint but still offer an excellent outdoor area to enjoy your morning coffee. Using a bistro set on your patio can show potential buyers the versatility of the space, if it's a bit small. However, if you have a large open patio area you don't want to use just a bistro set. It will make the space feel overwhelming and make it hard for potential buyers to picture themselves entertaining there - which defeats the purpose of home staging in The Woodlands.


Lounging Around

If your property has a pool or water feature, then use lounge furniture to make it feel like a resort. Again, you'll want to make sure the furniture fits within the space and not overwhelm the star of the yard - which is the pool or water feature. Grab a reasonably priced set of lounge chairs from sites like Overstock.com and while you're at it, get some fun cushions to complete the look. Remember to keep the fabrics neutral when home staging in The Woodlands so that the outdoor space is the star of the show. Lounging furniture lets the potential buyer know that this is the perfect place to relax after a long day.


Chairs and Sofas

Having a large outdoor space means you can really highlight all the entertaining opportunities during your home staging in The Woodlands. Taking advantage of a great selling point like ample outdoor space is key in selling your home. When potential buyers can see themselves entertaining their own guests on a beautiful summer night, they'll be more likely to sign the deal. If you don't already have a set, go all in on getting an outdoor sofa and chair set complete with a few accent tables and/or coffee table. If you can't make that kind of large investment on your own, hire a company that performs home staging in The Woodlands. They'll bring everything you need to make your outdoor space shine.  


Dining Options

Does your outdoor space come complete with an outdoor bar or dining space? If so, highlight it. And, of course, if you have an open space that lends itself to an outdoor dining set, make sure to stage it appropriately. Get an outdoor rug for the dining set to live on. Make sure you pull the colors from the rug into the chair cushions or table settings. While you're at it, add some fresh flowers at the center of the table. Just because it's outside doesn't mean it can't be as charming as any indoor dining area.

Again, if outfitting your outdoor space is out of your budget when you're ready to sell your home, call in the professionals. Home staging in The Woodlands takes a special finesse, and companies like Showhomes are here to help!
