How To Stage Home For A Photoshoot


  • cluttered countertops in kitchens, baths and other areas of the home, including dressers and nightstands

  • Too many items above the cabinets in kitchens (I prefer usually nothing in that space especially if the real money in the kitchen is from the cabinets down; granite, appliances, flooring, backsplash etc.)

  • crooked lamp shades

  • un made beds

  • gobs of spaghetti wires from cables and cords of TVs and computers everywhere

  • TV’s or another large item taking center stage in a room with fabulous selling features like a fireplace or great view

  • Exercise equipment in the master suite

  • garbage cans in every shot

  • wonky window treatments

  • too short of curtains/drapes left on the windows

  • stuffed animals and toys left strewn about

  • too much furniture in the room

  • light bulbs out or mixed wattage and tone of bulbs

  • patch work of rugs on rugs

  • rugs not to scale or properly anchoring a space

  • garish paint colors and wallpaper
