Stage Your Mudroom?

Mudrooms are a functional space in our homes and as such, they don't always look as orderly and polished as the rest of the house.  But if you're selling your home, this space needs to look it's best and show buyers that it is indeed a valuable space to have in a home.

The mudroom above is well designed and functions well for this family.  But it's not the prettiest thing to look at even though the built in bench and hooks are beautiful.  Despite how functional it is, it can look more like a messy eyesore than a must-have space.

Whether your mudroom is a series of built-in lockers or you just have some hooks on the wall, be sure to showcase the space in it's best light.  The idea here is to de-clutter the space but leave in a few things to let buyers know what the space is meat to be.  Keep it neat and orderly and the space will shine.

Remember to stage your mudroom.  Don't leave it empty, but don't leave it cluttered and messy either.  Instead add just a few key details to make buys think, "Wow, this would be a great space to have!"
