This fireplace is in the dining area and the place for romantic firelit dinners.

ANOTHER FIREPLACE BEFORE STAGING:
AFTER STAGING! WHAT A CONTRAST!
This fireplace is in a modest three bedroom home that could have benefited from an updated fireplace screen, but hey, the house is sold!!!! A fireplace is a natural focal point of a living room and should be shown to be staged even in the off season, too hot for a fire in the fireplace. Here on the mantel of this fireplace are two battery operated candles perfectly safe to add a little "fire lit" image. In staging the fireplace to sell, no personal photos, trophies, stuffed animal heads are necessary. Use an odd number to dress a mantle such as three objects on the fireplace mantle is a good number. You will want the fireplace to look inviting but not cluttered. If in doubt take one object back away one object at a time until you are satisfied with the look. Of course one person's cozy is another person's cluttered. In staging, error on the streamlined side!
