With all of the homes I have had the privilege to either consult on or stage there is one common theme that seems to come up time and time again. The debate about tissue boxes and whether or not they belong in the decor of a home when you are selling.
Tissue boxes are not accessories and should not be out on display while your house is on the market. "But they come in so many decorative boxes now". Well yes they do but....
When we are selling a house we do not want there to be distractions. Tissue boxes are such a distraction. Potential buyers do not want to come through a house that has tissue boxes all over the place. Why you ask??? Well they really don't want to be reminded of being sick and that is what tissue boxes do. Yes, they look more decorative now than ever and fit into many decor themes but let's leave them tucked away during the selling process.
If you think they need to be out in the open for what ever reason, then consider tucking them away for open houses and showings. This little trick will go along way as to not distract potential buyers.
