Home Staging Tips for Basements in Older Homes

By
Home Stager with Design To Market LLC

 

As we completed a home staging consultation in the Cincinnati suburd of Hyde Park yesterday, I noticed some great steps that the homweonwetr had taken to begin to prepare their home for the real estate market.  I can't take credit for these ideas but I can share them.

Many older homes in Cincinnati have wooden steps that are do not have risers and can be fairly steep.  The added challenge is that many of these homes have laundry in the lower level and can make these steps appear to be a safety hazard.  We felt this homeowner had taken an effective and low cost solutiion to addressing the problem.

Hi Jo--those stairs looks far more welcoming than many I have seen.  I think they did a great--clean, fresh, and safe.
