I try to clean rooms of clutter before I shoot. Here is a shoot I did today. I took about 8 minutes to go through the room and do what was needed to make a much more appealing shot. Here is some stuff I do to go that extra mile; remove all stuff off the fridge and range, hide all wires, remove hanging things, remove paper towels, soaps, drain stoppers and general little tzchatchkies (odds & ends). Again turn on all lights including under microwaves and stoves. Leave the room simple, clean and staged. Take the time and the room will be worth more and so will the home.
