Decluttering a space makes a huge difference. It can give a room the illusion of more space and square footage, and also makes a room look newer. For this staging client, I recommended that personal items on the counters and fridge be removed. We also upgraded the counter to match the flooring. The blue countertop and the blue walls were just too much all together. This change added some depth to the room! We also removed the items on top of the cupboards, giving the edges a cleaner and sharper look.
Once you declutter, it allows a potential buyer to picture themselves in your home, gives the appearance of a bigger area, and makes the room seem newer. You can't go wrong!
