Ready to Sell Your Home in Naples? Consider These 3 Luxury Home Staging Trends for 2023
1. A Moody Kitchen
2. Adding a Home Bar
3. Bringing the Outdoors In
Let’s take a closer look at each trend.
Home Staging Trend #1. A Moody Kitchen
Light and bright has been a common mantra for kitchen design. White or light counters or cabinets are generally safe bets when trying to appeal to the masses when your home is on the market. But high-end kitchen designs that incorporate deep, moody tones have become prevalent now more than ever. Cabinets have been the focus of this trend toward rich, calming hues. If you’re thinking about going darker in your kitchen, consider opting for neutrals, like mushroom or dark grey.
If you want to be more adventurous, you can try your hand at celadon green. You may even go a little bolder with emerald or navy. Pops of color in these types of classic hues can create a high-end look that homebuyers expect in luxury homes. Whichever you choose, a couple of coats of paint is all you need to make a dramatic transformation.
To complement these rich pigments, metallic hardware like, matte gold cabinet knobs, pulls, and fixtures, can be the perfect accompaniment to create a lush look that impresses buyers. Also, consider hardware like oil-rubbed bronze or copper to complete your particular interior vibe.
If you’re hesitant to go all-in with color on your cabinets, consider adding color to only the lower cabinets and maintaining a white finish on the uppers. Or, perhaps only paint the cabinet beneath the kitchen island as an accent, and repeat that hue using kitchen accessories.
Don’t worry, white kitchen cabinets are in no way passe. They’re a classic look that won’t go out of style. But do consider adding gold hardware if you want a fresh look that warms up your space.
Home Staging Trend #2. Adding a Home Bar
No media room is complete without the convenience of a home bar. After all, who wants to run to the kitchen every time you need to refresh a drink and risk missing the best part of the movie? A wine bar can be the perfect addition to your space—bar none.
This goes for game rooms, too. If you’re locked in an intense card game with family or guests, no one wants to break their focus to go to the kitchen for a refill.
Drink bars aren’t only for alcohol, wine, and sodas. A coffee station can be the perfect addition to your home office. Starbucks is great, but it’s pretty hard to beat a hot cup of Joe that’s right at your fingertips. House hunters will love the convenience, and the fact that they can host and serve clients during visits to their office. But first thing’s first—they have to buy your home!

Home Staging Trend #3. Bringing the Outdoors In
Indoor/outdoor living is not a new concept, especially here in Southwest Florida where lanais and caged pools are a way of life. But because bringing the outdoors inside is so integral to the lifestyle in our region, and is quickly becoming increasingly important for homebuyers—regardless of where they live, you should make use of every opportunity to enhance this vibe in your residence.
If your pool isn’t enclosed, consider adding that feature. Not only do enclosures help keep your pool clean, they create an outdoor room and can increase the value of your home.
If a pool enclosure isn’t in the plans or the budget, you can doing simple things like adding live greenery throughout your home, and staging furniture to create direct paths and clear lines of sight from the indoors-out—making the view and the outdoors a destination.
