A common problem - one floor tile with a hairline crack or a chip. Here is an inexpensive suggestion. A lot of times extra building supplies like roof tiles, floor tiles, etc. are under the basement stairs too. But when you have no other choice, this is a great improvised solution.
Is your Connecticut house on the market and you have broken floor tiles? Are they so old you can't find matching replacements? Buyers are looking for move-in ready homes, not projects. Try looking for replacements in your house. That's right. You might have replacement tiles right under your nose. Or under the stove, or fridge, or dishwasher, or cabinets, or washer, or dryer...
Sellers often ask this Fairfield County Home Stager for easy fixes to small problems when I'm doing a Staging Consultation. This broken tile is in a hallway that also leads to a bathroom as well as the laundry - all with the same tile floor. I suggested removing a tile from under the washing machine and using it as a replacement. It wouldn't be noticed, and it happened to be the most accessible for easy removal. Another, similar, tile in the right size went under the washing machine, and the hall floor now looks perfect. The seller was thrilled with this simple solution. Thanks to this tip and the other Staging recommendations, the house sold in under 30 days.
