Minimize and Rearrange

  • First take a good look at your belongings. Clear out the bookshelves, knick-knacks, and large furniture not being used.
  • Small and medium boxes are perfect for books and photographs.
  • With the items leftover rearrange so there is open space and an even flow through the house.
  • Keep as little around the entryway as possible.

Decorations and more

  • Leave artwork on the walls to bring some character to your space.
  • If the walls need a new coat of paint make sure you stick to non-dramatic colors.
  • Not everything has to be neutral colors, you can accessories with brightly colored pillows or vases of flowers.
  • Plants can bring life to a dark or small room. Put a potted flower in the corner or on a table.

Outdoor space is just as important

  • Make sure the exterior looks proper before company arrives.
  • Remove fallen leaves and sticks.
  • Brush off walkways and front steps.
  • You can put a few decorations outside, depending on the season. A wreath during the holidays or a garden flag in the spring are perfect.
