Home staging tip: I’m sure that by looking at these two photos you’ll see many differences, the paint color (once baby blue, now a neutral off white), the art on the walls, less clutter and different furniture. And that’s exactly what today’s blog post is about: the kind of furniture you need to use when you decide to put your house on the market.

As you can see the table in this (quite small) dining room was nice and unique. A little too big? Yes, but at least the glass top was making it look less bulky. The problem was really the mismatching chairs which, generally speaking, is not really a big issue since sometimes they work quite nicely together.

The problem, in fact, was that two of those chairs were just too…. can I say cheap? And I guess you know I’m talking about the greens ones, right? Those are usually the kind of chairs that you fold, put in a closet and take out when you have extra guests, but it’s not really a good idea to use them when you have to stage a house. This is the reason why we decided to change the whole dining set. The one that you see in the “after picture” was rented and we were lucky enough that its color was very close to the color of the cabinets. The cost? About $70 a month. Was it worth it? I would say, absolutely!
