Moving furniture around creates a new look without spending a dime. Sometimes we need a new set of eyes to help do that. Pulling a piece in from another room, or a lamp, or art can be just the change you need. The next bit of fun can be a trip to buy something new to reward yourself for purging those old tired pillows or rugs. You'd be surprised what can be accomplished in just a few hours.
If you're selling your home, staging is the way to go. Staged properties spend an average of 89% less time on the market, research has taught us. Staging costs you less than a price reduction. If new items are needed, they are purchased with your move in mind, so you can use them in your new home. The Knack really has the knack when you need to stage.
