Model homes are great examples to follow as a guide since they are decorated to a minimum. When your home is on the Lexington, KY resale market, you need to create space for the buyers. Reducing clutter and the overall number of items in a space will allow the buyer to mentally picture themselves living in your home.

Living Room and Family Room, Bonus Room, Rec Room:

  1. Remove all ashtrays.
  2. Ensure all soda cans, personal items etc. are removed.
  3. Clear off coffee tables and end tables and make sure there are no more that 2-3 magazines or books. One nice vase is ok but that is it.

Dining Room:

  1. Streamline by cleaning off your dining room table. It is okay to leave one nice centerpiece
  2. Remove tablecloths from table.
  3. Remove extra leaves from the table to maximize space and make the room look bigger.
  4. 4 to 6 chairs are more than enough at the dining room table. You don’t want the area to feel cramped or fill up the corners in the room. Store extra chairs in the garage or a storage unit.
  5. Streamline the buffet top and remove valuable items, collections.  Less is better.
