Clear Off the Counters
You like the convenience of the toaster, mixer, spices and coffeemaker
on the counter, but to a buyer, it just looks cluttered. Stash counter
items in the cupboard (if there's no room, stick them in a box
and take it with you during showings) and decorate the counter simply
with a bowl of fresh seasonal fruit. Here, Larry Taylor, a San Francisco
Bay Area home stager, created a spacious, fresh feel in the kitchen
with artichokes and Swiss chard.
