5 Decorative Elements to Help Sell Your Home

A living space is shown. There is a couch with throw pillows, a coffee table in the center, and two chairs on either side.

When it comes to staging and selling your home, there are a few simple ways to make the interior even more appealing to buyers. It’s important to be intentional with the decorative items you choose. Attention to detail and adding in key pieces can completely change the feel of a house. If you’re looking for interior design tips to help elevate your home, keep reading. We’re including five decorative elements that can help sell your home. 


An office-style room. The walls are white, with two pieces of black and white artwork. There are three grey chairs, and a glass table in the middle.

When you think of decor, you might instantly think of adding art to the walls. Rather than adding just anything to fill in any empty space, think about how artwork can be used to enhance a room. You may even want to choose art that will determine how the rest of the room will be decorated. Think of it as a starting point. It can inspire your overall color scheme, and set the mood of the room. Buyers’ eyes will naturally be drawn to these pieces, so you’ll want to put thought into curating them. 

Table Settings

It’s great to focus on the areas of the home where family members and friends can gather. Chic table settings can give the buyer ideas on how they might host their loved ones in their new space. Plus, this is an easy way to add the finishing touch to a blank table. Get creative with placemats, dishware, and napkins. You can decide if you want to keep it clean and simple, or make a bold statement. Play with colors, textures, and add in a centerpiece to match.

Plants are an excellent way to bring more life to a space. Whether or not they’re real, house plants can add extra style to just about any room in the house. From entryways, kitchens, and bathrooms, they can add that extra something. Faux plants are recommended for staging purposes because they can easily be reused, and you won’t have to worry about allergies. Take the time to consider where you could potentially add plants to take your home decor to the next level. 

Accent Chairs

Pieces of furniture that make a statement are perfect for switching things up. Seating in particular is a great way to add some personality. If you’re using a more neutral color scheme throughout, you might consider adding in a pop of color with an accent chair or two. It can be surprising to see what different patterns or fabrics can do. Finally, don’t be afraid to play with different placements to see how it changes the overall layout of a room.


An open living room with blue and white decor. There are grey chairs, and a couch with blue and white patterned pillows. There is a coffee table in the center. There is a white rug in the center of the floor with dark grey stripes.

Adding in rugs is perfect for making a room feel both polished and cozy at the same time. Having wide open tile or wood flooring can feel a bit overwhelming and empty to potential buyers. You’ll want to make them feel welcome, while also using the decor aspect. Rugs are great in the center of living areas, or underneath a bed. Try to choose a pattern that isn’t too busy for the rest of the room’s decor, but one that adds a focal point. Explore how different fabrics look and feel, and how they can complement the furniture you’ve chosen.
