31 Days to a Staged Home :: Day 28, Hallway, Hallway Closet & Stairway

Welcome back!

If it's your first time here, and you'd like to start at the beginning of this series,
which is entitled 31 Days to a Staged Home, 
click HERE.

Hallways, stairways, and hall closets!
Once you've decluttered, cleaned, painted, and updated them,
and if you have a stash of props from your Staging Area
are the most simple spaces to stage because they should be kept almost empty.
Remember the Pottery Barn/Timeshare feel that we are hoping to achieve?

Here are some examples of staged hallways, stairways, and hall closets:

P.S. I am getting a lot of fantastic questions from y'all!
Keep them coming!
I will have a Q & A Day on the 31st, the last (whew!) day of this series.

Please have a beautiful, blessed day!

And here it is, on Amazon!

  1. This series has been amazing and I'm sure it has taken a LOT of time putting it together. Thanks so much for sharing all of your wonderful tips. I have already implemented a number of your ideas and have a notebook full of "to dos" and ideas. Thanks again!! ~elaine (who still hasn't figured out how to post a comment without being "Anonymous")

  2. I agree with Elaine (above) -- great series, with some great tips. The photos are especially helpful. The before-and-after staging impact is amazing!

  3. This series has been SO helpful!

    Not sure if I asked this before, but how do you keep your house staged when you have kids who need to tinker on a daily basis? It's so hard to balance keeping their world stable when your house has to look model-perfect all the time.

  4. I had three questions- the first one Daisy just asked. I have a 6 and a 2 yr old.
    2) We don't have it in the budget to get a storage unit for our boxes and things we choose to move out of the house when we stage it. We have a unfinished basement and cemented crawl space. My plan was to have the basement extremely clean and use part of it to pile up boxes and things in an organized way so that we can have everything here still but someone could still see the majority of the basement and also see that there was space for our things in transit. Do you ever have people do this?
    3) We also have dark wood baseboards, cupboards, window sills, and doors throughout our home. It is only 6 years old and I don't think they look bad but the before and after picture you had of a room with dark paneling that you painted white was remarkable. We are considering doing that but it would require doing it throughout the entire house. Is it worth it?
    Thank you.

  5. I have a question: We are a 4-H family but are zoned residential. We live on 9/10ths of an acre. You say to get rid of all evidence of animals, however that just isn't possible with chickens and a shed full of pet and breeding meat rabbits. We also have a very large garden with raised beds, fruit trees and an area of rasberry canes. We do have the yard divided so the "farming" portion is not the main area and is actually hidden to a certain extent behind our pole barn garage. Do you have any hints and tips we could use to stage our home when the time comes? Getting rid of the animals will not be an option as they will be going with us when we get more land.

  6. I am sooo sad this series is coming to an end! I thank you for sharing all the info...

  7. I love this blog...thanks for putting so much effort into helping someone stage their house for the market...it is actually nice to live in a home that looks staged!

  8. My question: Is it OK to have your staged home decorated for the holidays or for a specific season?


Thank you for coming by and for sharing your heart and thoughts with me!
