Home stagers will remove your clutter, but bring in house plants. Some homeowners don’t understand why a healthy houseplant on the kitchen counter makes more sense for home staging than a stylish crock pot. We can explain why home stagers love houseplants and why they avoid fake houseplants.
- Houseplants clean the air and add a fresh scent.
- Tidy houseplants draw attention to the beautiful aspects of a home.
- Houseplants improve mood.
#1. Air Quality
Home stagers will often choose flowering plants or a succulent display when staging your home. Flowering houseplants add a subtle, lovely scent to any room they are in. The scent of live flowers is far superior to a Glade plug-in with a floral scent. Today’s homebuyers can tell the difference between the scent of real flowers and fake flowers. If they smell a fake floral scent, they will wonder what it’s covering up. This generation loves plants and gardening. Succulents are an easy flower for the on-the-go Millennial, so they automatically find them appealing. Plus, these educated homebuyers’ noses aren’t wrong. Whereas an artificial scent pollutes the air, live house plants clean it. NASA research showed that 87 percent of air toxins can be removed from a room in just 24 hours with houseplants!
Home stagers will use live, fresh, tidy houseplants to draw attention to the beautiful aspects of your home and property. If one window has a fantastic view, the home stager might use a houseplant to draw the homebuyer towards the window, so that they will notice the view. A home stager might use this same technique to draw attention to a granite countertop or another special feature.
#3. Mood Improvement
Home stagers know that houseplants actually improve people’s moods and reduce stress. When a potential buyer walks into your home, the home stager wants them to feel comfortable and at ease. A home buyer who feels good in your home is more likely to buy it. In fact, some homebuyers will purchase a less-than-perfect home simply because even if they can’t explain why; another home “just feels better.” Houseplants can do that.
