Declutter the Livingroom
The Livingroom needs to look welcoming, the prospective buyers need to imagine themselves unwinding there but it needs to feel spacious, too.
Here's what to pare back:
1) Get rid of excess furniture:
One of the quickest wins when decluttering your house is to get rid of excess furniture. A couple of pieces that are not needed will instantly make rooms feel more spacious and the positive features of the room more obvious.
2) Remove oversized pieces
You may have a large coffee table or gym equipment in a small living room or an ottoman in a small bedroom. Consider whether you need it on display or whether it could be sold, donated, or stored elsewhere where the house is on the market.
As beautiful as your wedding photos or pictures of your kids are, take them down. By decluttering photos on the walls and shelves, you de-personalize your home which means prospective buyers can visualize your home as their"s.
This is a good opportunity for you to decide whether any sentimental items should be stored in a memory box instead.
You may need to rearrange shelves where photos have been so play around with the space but remember to keep it simple and symmetrical, where possible.
