Home staging is about much more than cleaning, rearranging and organizing. Little details matter just as much, and have the potential to make a vast difference in the appearance of your home. These little (and inexpensive!) tricks just might be the finishing touch you need.

     1.Replace lamp shades. Brighten up a room with a lighter shade, or go darker to cast a warm glow. Just be careful not to go too dark!

      2. Bring in new hardware. Breathe a new life into your doors, cabinets and drawers by simply replacing the hardware. You’ll be surprised at how it can transform a room!

      3. Buy new bath coordinates. If what you currently have is mismatched, it can be off-putting to potential buyers. New rugs, towels and a shower curtain all in complimentary colors will do wonders for your bathroom.
