As we discussed last week, it's important for the features of the house to stand out above all else. First try neutralizing spaces by simply re-locating furniture to different rooms. Maybe a sofa is a bit too big for the space it is in but it functions well. Maybe you happen to have a smaller sofa hidden in the basement that would work better. Try switching them around as well as other pieces.
If your furniture is truly unique or entirely antiques, you may want to consider thinning out the pieces that are the most eye-catching and renting furniture. It's not because your pieces are insulting or ugly at all! Just keep telling yourself, "I'm selling my house, not my things."
Sometimes the solutions are not the most ideal for actual living and may even seem unrealistic. But remember: get the photos out of the way then you can make it a bit more comfortable. Houses show differently in real life than on a computer screen. And don't forget, you can always hire a stager to give a consultation where they will outline suggestions that work well with the furniture you have.
