Decorating your Outdoor Space Inexpensively!

By
Home Stager with Abella Home Staging & Redesign

Decorating your outdoor space inexpensively when staging your home can actually increase the value of your home. It does this by increasing your living space and curb appeal. When I'm doing a staging consultation with a client, I always try to improve on their curb appeal. Outdoor living space is one area that appeals to many buyers. There are so many ways to decorate your outdoor space without spending a fortune. Here are just a few suggestions to get you started!

  • Define your space. Create a seating area just like you would for your living room.
  • Furnish you space. Have mismatch furniture? Try painting them all the same color, that will unify the items.
  • Add drapes. if your lucky enough to have an arbor or gazebo, add drapes, that will dramatically change the appearance.
  • Stain your concrete.Their are so many beautiful colors that can turn your dreary concrete into beautiful array of colors.
  • Accessorize! Don't forget to bring in brightly colored pillows.
  • Treat your outdoor walls like your indoor walls. Hang wall art or any embellishment you desire, just make sure it can stand up to the elements.
  • Lighting. Hang string light, use lanterns or hurricane lamps to create ambience.
  • Use flowers. Whether in beds or pots, flowers add color.
Decorating your Outdoor Space doesn't have to be expensive. Look at magazines and visit local garden shops to get ideas! Of course you can invest and spend more money on elaborate items, but if you're looking to sell you home these suggestion won't break the bank!

Great ideas with the tented space, but don't know if I could get sellers to spring for that. Any idea how much that costs?

Carmela--these are all great ideas and as you say, inexpensive.  In Hawaii we spend so much time outdoors that it's crucial to selling a property.

Amy, I've seen them at Costco, Home Depot and even target. They can range from $300- 1,000 depending on the quality.

Janet, oh Hawaii! Nice place to live! But I believe outdoor living can apply to everyone, you just have to take into account how long your season is and if it's worth spending the money on items that may be too costly!
