We love our collections of __________ (fill in the blank), but when there is so much and you’re trying to sell your home, what to do? This simple home staging tip can actually help you show off the room while enjoying your pieces. Focus on a theme or color and then build from there, but only keep the strongest, nicest and best pieces to showcase. Have multiple collections? Sorting through them and getting a little of this and a little of that can go a long way, display them in odd numbers 3, 5, 7 but don’t go overboard.

If you’re trying to sell your house, let the architectural features of your home shine. You’re not trying to sell your collection, nor do you want your home to be remembered by the collection of cute pigs in the living room!

If you’re still confused, then boxing all the treasures, donating, or consigning would be the way to go. Letting go of the excess is good for the soul and clears the mind, plus you’ll find that the room feels bigger and cleaner and presents itself in the best possible manner. Selling a home can be tough, but will a little guidance and direction from a professional home stager, your home will speak volumes and your on-line photos will look fabulous!
