Not enough coat storage, they have pets and look at the wallpaper border you are about to see in the entire kitchen/family great room. Don’t get me wrong; this house is beautiful with amazing architecture. Check out the curved archway! Beautiful details like that are throughout the entire house and that is where the focus should be.

Themed borders are dated and taste specific. These are the details that can break a sale. Eliminate the negatives. Focus on the positives. This is the process of staging the house before going on the market.

Instructions for this home:

  • Remove wallpaper border.
  • Remove coat rack from wall. Patch wall.
  • Relocate pet crates, coats & shoes.
  • Edit, de-clutter & furniture rearrangement in a few rooms.
