- Less is more. You want to highlight the features of your home. So often less furniture, de-cluttering and removing personal items.
- Create furniture vignettes. Float the furniture to make the space appear larger.
- Great Lighting. Lighting makes your home look warm and welcoming.
- Paint in a neutral pallet. By painting the walls neutral the home appears larger and is more inviting and appealing to more buyers!
