Discover the top 3 items to remove for a successful home sale.
Preparing your house for the market is a crucial step in the selling process. Here are three items you should consider removing to make your home more appealing to potential buyers.
- Pictures and decor on walls. While a beautiful centerpiece picture can stay, it’s advisable to remove other pictures and decor from your walls. These items can make a room feel smaller by drawing attention to the proximity of the walls. Removing them can make your home look more spacious, giving buyers a better sense of the actual room size.
- Items on kitchen countertops. Clearing your kitchen countertops is essential. Any items left on the countertops can visually reduce their length and make the kitchen appear smaller. Since the kitchen is a key area where families spend a lot of time, you want it to appear as large and open as possible. Removing everything from the countertops showcases their full length and width.

- Area rugs. Though area rugs can be attractive, they often make a room appear smaller than it is. The goal is to allow buyers to see the beautiful flooring and get a sense of the spaciousness of the room. The exception to this rule is in large open spaces where area rugs can help define different areas, like a dining or living room within a larger space.
